Feeling confident in your own skin. Kristin Cavallari recently surprised fans with a racy bikini photo, but the reality TV star had a lot of concerns before sharing it with the world.

“I’ve been sitting over this photo for several days. Because I knew that if I just spit it out and said, “The bun is out,” people would be like: “You’re a mother! What the hell is wrong with you!”, — explained the 35-year-old Cavallari in the podcast “Not skinny, but not fat” on Tuesday, July 19.
The Laguna Beach graduate, who has children Camden, 9, Jackson, 7, and Saylor, 5, with Jay Cutler, eventually decided she didn’t care what abusive moms said. “Damn it, I’m going to post this,” she recalls. “I think just because I’m a mom doesn’t mean I should be ashamed of my body or have to hide it.”
Cavallari noted that she is only concerned about her personal progress after feeling “thin” and “stressed” in the past. “It makes me proud. I feel better than ever, physically, but also mentally and emotionally. They all feed each other. So, yes, I think it’s something to celebrate,” she continued. “I don’t really care because I’m confident in all the decisions I make in my life, so someone’s opinion of me doesn’t really affect me. I have a couple of ass photos on my Instagram over the years, but there aren’t many of them.”
At the end of last month, the founder of Uncommon James spoke about her body problems over the years.

“I sat over this picture for several days, going back and forth, whether to post it or not. In the end, I decided: [sic] I’ve come a long way compared to what it was a few years ago, and I’m really proud of the progress I’ve made,” she captioned a June photo on Instagram in which she was wearing a black bikini. looking at the ocean.
Cavallari also added two of her pictures, in which she looked much thinner, writing: “I don’t even recognize the girl in these two photos… and no, I’ve never had an eating disorder… it was just stress.”

In the same month, the Colorado native described in detail the work that had been done to get better. “My goal right now is kind of just to keep the muscles that I have. I’m not trying to lose weight,” Cavallari said then in an exclusive interview with Us Weekly. “I’ve put on a lot of weight over the last few years, but in a good way.”
According to the designer, she was “shocked” to see her former appearance when viewing old photos. “At the time, I didn’t realize how thin I was. Therefore, I am happy that I have recovered,” she added. “I feel better than ever. I feel like I’m the strongest I’ve ever been. I’m just really comfortable in my skin right now, and it’s a really good feeling.”
