And as far as Bethanie Garcia is concerned, let the haters hate. She is perfectly comfortable in her body.
"We received over 2,000+ messages and comments filled with hate," Garcia told the television station.
“Posts like this bother me. Not losing the weight is a choice,” one person wrote.
“Photos like this tear women apart,”⠀another poster wrote.
“Is this an advertisement for why women should get tummy tucks?”was another comment left on Garcia’s Instagram post.⠀
Garcia said she and her friends are ignoring the “haters and trolls,” adding she has also received plenty of positive feedback.
“It’s a shame that the point has been completely missed by some of the people that have taken time out of their day to comment,” Garcia wrote on Instagram. “The point being: the four of us have been friends online for a long time and finally met IRL and took a last minute photo together...of our different postpartum body types … to show that all body types are beautiful.”
