Stacey Solomon knew just what to say when a gossip site body shamed her.
The Sun posted side-by-side pictures of the 2009 British X-Factor contestant and last year's winner because apparently they haven't gotten the memo that comparing women's bodies just isn't cool.
The photos ran alongside the blurb, "X Factor stars Stacey Solomon and Louisa Johnson show it’s a case of sinky pinky and perky with contrasting bikini styles. Stacey, 26, left… seemed to have trouble keeping hers on while on holiday in Ibiza. Meanwhile, last year’s winner, Louisa, 18, showed how it should be done while on a break in L.A."
Instead of getting down about the negative comments, Solomon posted an inspiring rebuttal.
"I LOVE MY BODY @TheSun," she wrote in an Instagram post addressing the nasty commentary. "My boobs are a result of being pregnant & breast feeding & I love them. I Am just as sexy! 👙"
The 26-year-old is a single mother to two boys, Zachary, 8, and Leighton, 4.
She then shared a picture with her sons, in which she's rocking another bikini.

The mother of two explained that her response is as much about empowering other women as it is about herself.
"When I saw the article, I half laughed and half wanted to shed a tear," she told TODAY Parents. "I laughed, because luckily, I am very proud of who and what I am and I work hard to be happy and healthy, as ultimately, that's all that matters to me. It made me emotional because I though about all of the mothers, women, or girls out there who may read the article and feel as though they need to have perfectly perky boobs and a tiny frame to be 'getting it right,' which is just ridiculous."
