Curvy Swede Linda-Marie Nilsson, 22, has become an internet hit after letting it all hang out in an online bikini snap showing that she's every inch a real woman.
Linda-Marie - from Stockholm in Sweden - was fed-up with seeing only seaside photographs showing model-sized girls whenever she logged onto social media websites.
"It's mostly skinny girls who post photos of themselves in bikinis. Girls who are a bit plumper like me usually just take photos of other things," she explained.
Within 24 hours her snap had generated 70,000 'likes' and Linda-Marie was flooded with emails from fans from all round the world.
"I’ve got thousands of emails and comments. I even got emails from people in Canada and Australia thanking me for being brave and posting it. It feels surreal," she said.
Some critics have attacked Linda-Marie for celebrating "an unhealthy lifestyle."
But she said: "I don’t care what they say. Instead I’ve cried when reading the emails of guys and girls who’ve been suffering because they feel ashamed of their bodies."
