Apart from her Dior bikini and gorgeous barefaced skin, her followers noticed how Pia showed off an “unfiltered version” of her body—tummy rolls included. Pia has gotten praise from her followers in the past for sharing photos of herself with no makeup. But this time, the internet loves how the beauty queen demonstrates “body authenticity” with her photos that make no attempt at hiding her stomach rolls.
“I love that you showed the real YOU! And women should embrace their womanly curves. It’s beautiful!” one follower commented.
Another netizen said: “I love how you normalize stomach rolls!”
A comment read: “Thank you for being you. And yes, even the most stunning women in the world can have stomach rolls and they’re not ashamed about it.”
The top comment on Pia’s post reads: “If Pia can have stomach rolls, then so can you!”
Pia has long been vocal about her body positivity advocacy. In a 2021 Instagram post, she talked about honoring her body regardless of size, shape, and appearance. “This body has carried me through life, and I will honor it—cellulite, jiggles, and all,” she wrote.
