23 Times Ariel Winter Was Sexy and Confident On Instagram


Body positive is not just a talking point for Ariel Winter.

The Modern Family star, who underwent breast reduction surgery last year, has never let online bullies and haters stop her from showing off her body on social media, skin and all.

"I think there are so many bigger issues in the world that we should be focusing on than what we're wearing," the 18-year-old actress shared with The Talk on Tuesday. "I posted a photo of me at my graduation party with my dress, showing a little bit of underboob, I thought I looked great."

And in 2016, Winter has taken that confident style and run with it, sharing many revealing snaps to Instagram, from cleavage-baring swimsuits, to revealing cutout jean outfits, to makeup-free photos.

Here are 23 times Winter has shown her incredible body confidence on Instagram.
