The comedian isn't afraid to show a little skin, especially to make a point about a larger message!
Getting the Vote Out
Handler encouraged her Instagram followers to vote by sharing a vid that featured her two very strategically placed voting stickers over her breasts. "PSA: Democracy means that every vote is counted!" she wrote in November 2020. "If you see something that doesn't look right at the polls, or need help voting, call the nonpartisan Election Protection Hotline: (866) 687-8683 🗳 My apologies to my nieces and nephews."
The comedian pleaded with fans to wear a face mask amid the coronavirus pandemic. She posted a hilarious video that showed her wearing one not just to cover her nose and mouth but also two more covering her breasts. "Everybody needs to find a mask and put it on because I'd like to have fun again, OK?" she said in her workout video before dancing around in her "bra." "People want their kids to go back to school and we're abusing our healthcare workers. Please find a mask and put it on any part of your body. I love my body!"
Handler posed in a bathtub to share some of her favorite books as she started a new online series, #GetLitWithChelsea. "Do you like to have fun in the tub with learning? I do. I will be sharing #GetLitWithChelsea recommendations bi monthly if you care to read some of my picks and keep your brain from turning into a pancake during quarantine. Books: #Untamed by @glennondoyle, #UntetheredSoul by #MichaelAllenSinger, and #Diplomacy by #HenryKissinger #NakedLit," she wrote in April 2020.
"I just found out about shower caps, and it’s a real game changer. #showerthoughts," Handler joked in November 2018.
"Happy #ValentinesDay everybody! This is how I float. I don’t need a plus one for that," she captioned a cheeky bathtub pic in honor of Valentine's Day 2020.
"Day 4 of no food. #fasting to reset for the Jew year. I'm freezing, but it's great," Handler captioned a topless selfie in January 2017 -- though she was keeping warm rocking a winter hat.
On an artistic whim, Handler captioned this August 2015 'gram, "Butt art."
Apple a Day
The New Jersey native strategically covered up with a lime as she posted a pic about her bad hair day in August 2015, writing, "Look at my hair. Something must have happened while I slumbered."
The comedian enjoyed a self-care day while in Japan in June 2015. "I'm in a detox bath that my makeup artist gave me which may or may not cause diarrhea," she wrote on Instagram. "Tune in Tokyo."
Double the Fun
The frequently nude TV personality stripped down to her birthday suit alongside her equally naked funny pal, Nick Offerman, for a special April 2015 issue of Esquire that the outlet said was "devoted to the increasingly charged relations between women and men in America." "I finally got naked for a professional reason," Handler wrote on Instagram of the magazine cover. "I don't know why Khloe and Kim had to steal my a**."
Big Easy Beads
Leave it to Handler to wear her Mardi Gras beads as a shirt, which is exactly what she did while partying with pal Whitney Cummings in New Orleans in February 2015. Of course, they both covered up with masks, too.
The hilarious aurthor was still fighting for her right to go topless on Instagram when she posted this pic in January 2015 of her riding a camel wearing nothing but pasties that featured the Star of David. Insisting she was posing for peace, she captioned the scantily-clad image, "A Muslim allowed a topless Jew to sit on his camel. And we say we can't live side by side? I say we try and we can and we will. And, You don't even have to be topless. L'chaim."
Handler delights in testing the boundaries of Instagram's community guidelines. She quickly parodied Kim Kardashian's Paper magazine cover in November 2014, writing, "Can you believe more than 2 ass can fit on the same screen? Guess which one's real. Your move, Instagram."

Keeping Up With Chelsea
"I'm a Kardashian," Handler joked as she posed in nothing but a gold thong in August 2014.

Sandy in the Shower
Chelsea's assistant Chuy Bravo was by her side nearly every day on Chelsea Lately, so it only makes sense that he made an appearance in the shower scenes, too.
Hard at Work
In May 2012, Handler posted this pic of herself working while rocking nothing but a bra.
In 2009, Handler stripped down for Allure claiming, "I like being naked, and I like Allure, so I figured, Why not?" She also shared her favorite body part with the mag, saying, "My boobs are good. They're real and perky. Even if you can't see them, the important thing is that I know about them, and the guys I've slept with know about them."
