"Camila looks amazing. No plastic surgery like all of Hollywood," one fan tweeted, while another added, "This picture shouldn't be deleted. She looks fine, not perfect, but fine. And that's OK. It's nice to see a celebrity without a Photoshopped plastic body."

"No Photoshop or surgery! She is a pure nature and beautiful woman! She has natural curves and she is a queen," one person wrote.
"This is what normal bodies look like," another tweeted. "I'm sick and tired of y'all body-shaming every woman who doesn't have a flat stomach! Her body is beautiful and so is she."

"This is honestly beautiful. We Stan a woman taking control and diminishing the need to have the same body as everyone else. She looks amazing," added another.
As a woman in the public eye, Cabello is no stranger to body criticism. In 2019, the former Fifth Harmony singer shared a powerful message via her Instagram story, explaining to her more than 53.1 million followers that she's learned to be comfortable with her body, and urged others to practice self-love.
“I haven’t gone on social media at all with the conscious intention of avoiding things that hurt my feelings,” she wrote.

At the time, Cabello said she had skimmed over a hurtful headline about her on social media with candid photos of her celebrating the anniversary of her song, "Havana."
“Honestly first thing I felt was super insecure just imagining what these pictures must look like, 'Oh no! My cellulite! Oh no! I didn’t suck in my stomach!' But then I was like, 'Of course there are bad pictures, of course there are bad angles, my body’s not made of f—-ing rock, or all muscle, for that matter," she continued. "But the saddest part of young girls growing up in an airbrushed world, is they're seeking perfection that isn't real. I'm writing this for girls like my little sister who are growing up on social media. They're constantly seeing Photoshopped, edited pictures and thinking that's reality."
She explained that everyone's "eyes have gotten so used" to seeing altered images of people, that they've forgotten what authenticity looks like.
"It's fake," she wrote. "And fake is becoming the new real. We have a completely unrealistic view of women's bodies. Girls, cellulite is normal. It's beautiful and natural. I won't buy into the bull-—- today."
