To Sisqó’s delight (we assume) Ariel Winter championed the thong bikini trend back in April and she’s still sticking to her favorite style well into summer.
On Sunday the Modern Family star showed her appreciation for her 2 million Instagram followers with a cheeky message — literally. She posed behind the steering wheel of a boat wearing a red, white and blue tie-dye bikini featuring a strappy top and thong-design bottoms. And she marked the major follower milestone by writing, “can’t believe it…love you guys so much.”

This followers her recent Daisy Dukes and crop top phase and continues her positive body image message. In one of her latest selfies she wears tight jeans and crop top while telling fans to “Embrace all that you are. Don’t let those outside voices become your inner voice.”
She’s never been afraid to stand up to — or laugh at — body shamers. When she received criticism for her underboob-exposing graduation bodycon dress, she spoke out. “Dear sorry body-shamers, I looked HOT in that dress,” she tweeted. “And if you hate it, don’t buy it. But please get a hobby. XOXO Ariel #EmbraceYourBody.”

And when someone photoshopped her chest in a bikini photo, she didn’t let them get the last laugh.
