Fans have been urging Jessica Simpson not to 'change [her] body' after she shared a bikini photo last week.
Taking to her social media to share the photo, Jessica, 41, explained she was 'finally' wearing a bikini after losing and gaining weight a number of times.
"I have gained and lost 100lbs 3x so I never thought this moment could or would happen, but I'm finally spring breakin' wearin' a BIKINI!!!!!!" She wrote.
"Hard work, determination, self love. I enjoyed a good proud cry today."
While fans were supportive, some were upset that Jessica felt she couldn't wear a bikini prior to her weight loss.
Blogger Katie Sturino said: "Jess you look so beautiful and I just wish that you knew that you could have worn a bikini anytime. Anytime, and you would have looked just as beautiful."
She added: "@jessicasimpson's post made me want to remind everyone that you don't need to change your body to feel good on the beach.
"I'm such a @jessicasimpson fan (her book is THE BEST-audio version recommended) and I love that she feels good and that that is great!!
"But I know how hard she has struggled with body image throughout her life (understandably so bc she came up in a very rough time for women's body image) and I love that she is happy with her body now and I hope she knows she can be happy even if it changes....and so can you."
Another person added: "You are beautiful at every weight no matter what :fire::cherry_blossom:."
While a second said: "Happy for you but you can still wear a bikini no matter what size you are!"
Meanwhile a third added: "You are beautiful inside and out, NEVER let anyone tell you differently!!"
Jess recently took to social media to mark four years of being sober, sharing an unrecognisable throwback image with followers.
"This person in the early morning of Nov 1, 2017 is an unrecognizable version of myself," she wrote online.
"I had so much self discovery to unlock and explore. I knew in this very moment I would allow myself to take back my light, show victory over my internal battle of self respect, and brave this world with piercing clarity.
"Personally, to do this I needed to stop drinking alcohol because it kept my mind and heart circling in the same direction and quite honestly I was exhausted. I wanted to feel the pain so I could carry it like a badge of honor.
"I wanted to live as a leader does and break cycles to advance forward - never looking back with regret and remorse over any choice I have made and would make for the rest of my time here within this beautiful world."
