Lena Dunham is taking her post-wedding bliss to the beach.

On Sunday, the Girls star shared a shot of herself wearing a bright yellow one-piece swimsuit paired with oversized pale pink sunglasses, her many tattoos on display as she struck a coy pose from her seaside cabana. According to her caption, the actress, writer and director is something of a late bloomer when it comes to appreciating beach life.

"Until I was 10 I was scared of the beach and would cry hysterically if I touched sand," she wrote. "So I guess what I’m saying is have faith, people can CHANGE!!!"

The post also includes footage of Dunham's new husband, musician Luis Felber, coming to join her in the sea, the couple embracing as waves lap against their legs. The pair were married in London last September, just months after starting their courtship that January.

Dunham, who has been documenting her beach vacation with her "Instagram husband," received compliments from commenters for both her sweet show of affection and her sunny swimsuit.

"LOVE THIS!!" raved actress Juliette Lewis, though the highest praise came from Dunham's spouse, who declared her his "beach angel dream queen."

Though her swimsuit photo is getting lots of love, the 35-year-old, who recently debuted her new film Sharp Stick at Sundance, opened up last month about the body shaming she received after Girls skyrocketed her to fame.

"People had a very swift and strong and allergic reaction to what I looked like, and they made it very clear to me," Dunham told The Hollywood Reporter in a recent interview. "I was getting messages — many, many, many of them a day — about what I looked like. Things most people will never have said to them in their lives because most of polite society keeps people from walking up to each other at a Target and going like, 'You're fat, you're ugly and you deserve to die.'"

She added that the criticism largely came from women.

"I think people would think it would be like Trump-loving men in the heartland," she said. "But it was women. Probably women with similar body types to me who had internalized the kind of hatred that we are supposed to have of our bodies. If they weren't going to enjoy their body, then I sure as hell wasn’t supposed to enjoy mine."
