After Jessy Mendiola felt flaunted her bikini body in Boracay while taping with the cast of the comedy gag show “Banana Sundae,” she encouraged her online followers to love their body and also advised them to not get distracted with the body shaming comments.

“My body may not be perfect but that will not stop me from being confident with myself. I've had my fair share of body shaming comments. So I know how it feels like to be called "FAT" or "TUMABA.” 

“Well, just to inform some of you "PERFECT" people. We all come in different sizes and shapes but that shouldn't stop us from being happy with our own bodies. There are times that you will gain weight and there are times that you will lose it. It's normal. It just shows that you are a human being. 

“So whether you are curvy, malaman, skinny, too skinny, on the plus size or even on the plus plus size, you have ALL the right to be confident with yourself because that is who and what YOU are.

“If you don't love yourself enough, who else will? Think about it. So go ahead girl, wear that bikini and FLAUNT it. After all, it's YOUR body. Not theirs,” she wrote in her photo’s caption.
