'Beauty doesn't come pre-packaged in one size.'

Tess Holliday has shared a photo of her bare baby bump with a body positive message on Instagram.

The plus size model who is currently six months pregnant with her second child shared the 'bumpie' on Thursday 17 March with the caption: 

"Every time I look at my tummy, I'm reminded at how amazing my body is.

"Even though I've had a baby before, I didn't love myself entirely. So now every kick, every pain, is incredible to me."

"I get constantly shamed and criticized for existing in this body, but the problem isn't my size, it's others inability to comprehend that beauty doesn't come pre-packaged in one size," Holliday continued.

"I'm embracing my stomach getting bigger, stretch marks, and loving this little life I'm growing."
