Louis Tomlinson from One Direction's bad ass sister Félicité Tomlinson has written a powerful open letter about body shaming on her Instagram account.

So it's no secret that Félicité is a pretty big mega babe, but it turns out she's ace at portraying her feelings and opening up about her insecurities on social media, too, addressing the media's idea of perfection in her latest caption.

Along with a mirror selfie, she wrote: 

"This is so hard for me to post but I just really wanted to be real and share this message. I love seeing so much body positivity on my previous post. As a slightly curvier girl I have always felt quite under represented in the media. I have always been pretty confident and enjoyed my shape but sometimes it is difficult when all girls my age in movies/ magazines etc are very thin (which is completely beautiful too). I have always tried to hide my body in photos in the past, not because I didn't like it or didn't think it was beautiful but because I didn't think it was as socially accepted and liked. What I'm trying to say is that every body is so beautiful and it's nice when I see girls of my shape acknowledged. Love you all, you're beautiful."

We probably couldn't have said it better ourselves. It doesn't matter if you're tall, short, fat, thin, triangular with purple fluffy bits hanging off: so long as you can accept and love yourself, no one else's opinion matters.

This isn't the first time she's opened up about bodyshamers online, taking to Instagram a few weeks ago about why you should love your own body regardless of what other people think.

She commented:

"Was so shocked by some of the comments on this picture. "I wouldn't want my teenage daughter doing this" "your mother should control you". Like is the world we live in still so ignorant. Teach your children that their body is so much more than something to be sexualised. My body can carry and feed a baby and it is beautiful and people are still offended by seeing it in shorts. By telling young girl what they can and can't wear because it's "inappropriate" or against a "dress code" is perpetuating rape culture and adding to female oppression. Different things empower different people and my body is just one of the things that empowers me. Educating myself, educating others, feeling love and passion empowers me too. Find what empowers you and don't shame others for having different views to you. (As long as they are not harmful to others)"

SLAAAAAY.
