Amy Schumer must be feeling the love!

The actress took to Instagram to share pictures from her vacation with her childhood friends. In them, Schumer wears a red triangle bathing suit — and people are showering her with compliments.

“I love real women in bikinis You seem so strong in who you are,” one wrote. Another added, “I love the fact u are wearing a bikini. You are the best and your beautiful.” Someone else said, “I love how confident you are in your own skin. You teach me to be the same.” A commenter who usually doesn’t engage on social media was inspired to say something: “Thank you for sharing yourself as you are. It’s nice to see another strong, successful woman, as you are, not photoshopped. THANK YOU!”

Schumer did make time for a snapshot with her chef husband, Chris Fischer. They also took their own getaway, a honeymoon in Italy, in March following their surprise wedding in February.

While traveling in Europe just last week, Schumer, 37, shot down rumors that she and Fischer are expecting a child, after she seemed to showcase her stomach in a snapshot.

“I am not pregnant. I am… not pregnant,” she later wrote on Instagram, after she realized that her photo was prompting baby bump speculation. “It looked like I was pointing to a bump or something but I’m not. Leesa Evans and I have created a clothing line for all sizes and shapes and at a chill price point. That’s what I was trying to allude to but thank you for thinking of my womb.”

Earlier in her trip, Schumer joked about another feature on her body: her tattoo, which she’s not a fan of anymore.

The Trainwreck star has long been an advocate for body confidence. Talk about imperfections doesn’t register with her anymore, she told the Project in April.

“I’ve been in the public eye in some way for 10 years, doing standup for 15 years, so I’ve heard every insult you could possibly imagine,” Schumer said. “I am very desensitized to it, I couldn’t read something mean about myself and feel bad about it if I wanted to. Also I know that that’s not who I am.”

She added, “Nothing can really mess with my baseline at this point in terms of my confidence. I have never been apologetic for what could be considered a flaw on my body.”
