Sarah Nicole Landry is proud of her bikini body.

On Wednesday, the Canadian body positivity advocate — also known as The Birds Papaya — took to Instagram to share a video from her latest photoshoot where she modelled Knix swimwear.

The mom-of-four included a caption praising the Canadian company for its inclusivity and dubbed herself a "stretch-marked" bikini model.

"Thirty-eight, mom-of-four, cellulite, stretch-marked bikini freaking model," she penned for her more than 2.2 million followers. "I arrived here on a plane, but I got here by removing the limiting beliefs I had about who qualified for that title."

"Grateful for swimwear that makes you feel your best, supported and styled."

Landry's post garnered applause from fans for her inspiring confidence.

"I wish I could be as confident as you. True inspiration," an Instagram user commented, while another wrote, "I love this! You're such an inspiration."

"Changing the game. So proud of you," a fan added.

"I don't know why but this made me emotional. Good emotional. Thank you for representing us," another chimed in.

One person penned: "Wow! This is amazing. You're a true inspiration! Thank you for normalizing normal bodies. Your confidence is contagious!"

"Amazing. I'm so inspired by this," echoed another commenter.

Last week, the Guelph, Ont.-based influencer earned even more praise from her fans after she opened up in an Instagram Reel about a body shaming experience she had when she was just 12.

"When I was in the seventh grade, I had just gotten home from a family vacation," Landry recalled. "I was wearing a brand-new outfit on that first day back at school, standing at my locker, when a really popular boy comes up behind me and says, 'Oh, Sarah, it looks like you enjoyed a few too many cheeseburgers on that trip.'

"It changed who I was."

Landry's message was quickly met with supportive comments for her transparency.

"Thank you so much for opening up about this story! I think so many of us have had similar experiences that we bottle up because it feels embarrassing or shameful," an Instagram user commented.

"Thank goodness there are people like you who work endlessly to change the narrative," another wrote.

"Thanks for spreading your message," a fan added.

"I'm so thankful for empowered, brave women like you using their platform to teach other people how free life can be!" someone penned.
