ENGLISH WOMAN JESS Portelli has had quite a week so far.

Last Thursday she was in Brighton trying on bikinis in a shop for summer. When she was on the way into the changing room a girl said that girls like her shouldn’t wear a bikini.

So she responded with a brilliant post on Facebook from inside the changing room


She began:

I don’t usually post such pictures of myself on Facebook however what happened today should be shared to raise some awareness.

Her post has been shared over 1500 times this week – and the real kicker came at the end:

Thank you for fat shaming me ,thanks to you I got an awesome discount on my bikini
Much love, ‪#‎Fat‬ ,‪#‎confident‬, girl !

A discount *and* thousands of people supporting her body confident selfie.

Chalking that one down as a major win.
