Gabbi Garcia is sending an important message about body positivity through a post on Instagram.
On Saturday, October 2, 2021, the 22-year-old actress posted a photo in an olive green bikini that she paired with a slit skirt in the same color.
In her caption, Gabbi admits, "I used to be so shy & hesitant when it comes to wearing triangle-shaped bikini tops. But now, I learned to finally embrace it [sparkle emoji] Flaunt it and be proud [white heart emoji] #FlatandProud"
After almost a week, Gabbi's post has garnered over 382,000 likes. Her closest celebrity friends showed their support for the actress in the comments section of her post.
Some of those who left fire emojis and uplifting comments on her post: Klea Pineda, Thea Astley, Rhian Ramos, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Julie Ann San Jose, and Dominic Roque.
This isn't the first time Gabbi has written her thoughts about her body image. In a post on Twitter last August 25, 2021, the actress called out her body-shamers who put her down with comments such as "ang taba mo," "chubby ka na," and "buntis ka ba."
Part of her tweet read: "Can we all stop & take a break from body shaming?? Bawal tumaba at mag stress eat ng lockdown? Bawal maging bloated? Kailangan beach body forever?
"Grabe anong petsa na guys, character development naman tayo diyan."
