"I think there are so many bigger issues in the world that we should be focusing on than what we're wearing," the Modern Family star said. "I posted a photo of me at my graduation party with my dress, showing a little bit of underboob, I thought I looked great."

Winter previously defended herself against body shamers who criticized her skin-baring gown by posting the following message on social media. "Dear sorry body-shamers, I looked HOT in that dress. And if you hate it, don't buy it. But please get a hobby. XOXO Ariel #EmbraceYourBody," Winter tweeted last month.

Couldn't be more grateful to @shanelle_gray & @davidbarrygray for throwing me the most amazing graduation party ever last night...the amount of love and support they've shown me for the past four years has been life changing. My sister is my absolute best friend and my everything...❤️ Thank you so much. I couldn't be luckier or more grateful. I was in awe last night and I still am that you guys love me that much to do all of that for me...I never would be where I am today without you two...you guys saved me and taught me to be the person I am today. Dad...I love you!!! Thank you for always being there to support and love me as well and always put a smile on my face no matter what :). I'm so grateful for the bond we now share. Alenah the song you put together with Shanelle and recorded for me was one of the most special gifts I've ever received. I'm still tearing up thinking about it. Thank you for that and for your beautiful, special performance. Also a big thank you so much to Geraldine for putting it all together and to @contemporarycatering @robpauerful for the most amazing food!

Winter, who wore a white bodysuit and nude skirt on the show, also talked about the negative reactions she's received on social media after revealing her new tattoos.

"I've been body shamed for just about everything I could be body shamed for… and when I got tattoos… every single person on the face of the planet had something to say about it," Winter explained.

"It can destroy a person, and I think it's disgusting that's what people spend time on," she added.

Beginning of my late night spent at @shamrocksocialclub with @_dr_woo_ 😍 can't wait to share soon ;) #tattoos
