Sarah Nicole Landry, also known as The Birds Papaya, is reminding fans that bodies are not designed to fit clothes, but the other way around.

On Wednesday, the body-confidence influencer shared an Instagram Reel posing in a black long-sleeve bodysuit and a white and green bikini — both high-cut bottoms.

In the video, the mom-of-four explained while she finds the high cut-look is "hot," it also serves as a reminder to her that bodies aren't meant to "shape shift" to fit ever-changing style trends.

"High cut bottoms. Low-riding bellies," the on-screen text read before Landry said, "I've noticed everything has gotten really high cut lately. And I love bodysuits, I love bathing suits, which means my body and my belly go somewhere else."

Landry pointed out her lower abdomen tends to "wing out" around her bikini line, "because I have loose skin from kids and life and everything."

After changing into a bathing suit to give viewers another example of what high cut bottoms look like on her, she shared she loves the style.

"I honestly love it. I think it looks hot," she said. "Even though it's high on the belly, my belly goes low."

Landry then shared a reminder people aren't "designed and born to be some shape shifter into every new style that exists out there," in the video. "Sometimes, your body is going to fit things differently than other people's bodies because clothes were made to fit bodies — not the other way around."

In the comments, fans applauded Landry's body-positive message.

Landry herself also commented on the post, adding: "Remember when someone once called it a reverse muffin top? That was my fav."

Canadian TV host, Tracy Moore chimed in: "Love this suit on you. And yeah, the clothing needs to fit us. Not the other way around."

"Sitting here crying at the revelation that our bodies aren’t meant to shape shift to every trend. I’m 37, and this is this is the first time I've heard it put that way. Thank you," an Instagram user commented.

"When they go high, we go low," a fan quipped.

Another shared: Love this reminder. Honestly, the little belly poking out the bottom is cute as f—- and no one can tell me otherwise."

In May, Landry garnered praise after sharing an Instagram reel of herself trying on a fitted, patterned maxi dress alongside a message about her self-acceptance journey.

"When you stop worrying about if your belly is soft and showing and just show up," the on-screen text reads as she put the dress on.

"The 16-year-old version of me that taped her belly with duct tape and bandages would be super proud, I hope," Landry wrote in the caption.
