Mindy Kaling shared an uplifting post about 'bikini bods' and everyone is feeling the love.

Bikini season is upon us, and Mindy Kaling has something to say about it.

The actress, comedian, writer, and recent mother shared a post on Instagram, promoting body positivity and embracing everyone's 'right' to wear a bikini. The post showed two photos of Kaling absolutely slaying in a two-piece bikini, as well as a video in which she shared a story about how she came to realize that anyone should have the confidence to wear bikinis if they want.

The caption reads: "IDK who needs to hear this but…," she wrote. "WEAR A BIKINI IF YOU WANT TO WEAR A BIKINI. You don't have to be a size 0."

The accompanying video is of of Kaling talking about her experience in Hawaii, where she was inspired by the women of all body types who wore bikinis.

She says:

"My very best friend in the world, Jocelyn, is from Hawaii, and I would go and visit her when I was in college, and what I was struck about Hawaii is that everybody wears bikinis," she recounted. "It does not matter what your body type is. You rock a bikini cause you're in Hawaii. And there's so much body positivity there that I, who was always really shy about my body, would wear bikinis."


Kaling adds that she prefers high-waisted bottom bikinis, as they are more flattering for her figure, and encourages her followers to share their bikini pics with her.

Naturally, people were inspired by this uplifting message.
