A curvy TOWIE star, from The Only Way is Essex, defied her body insecurities by stepping out under the Miami sun in a two-piece bikini.

Lauren Goodger took to Twitter to post pictures of herself in the silver swimsuit that accentuated her womanly shape.

The reality star pulled off a fashionable look as she paired the piece with oversized sunglasses and silver bangles, while allowing her dark locks to cascade down her shoulders.

It is certain Goodger, who was once engaged to fellow TOWIE star Mark Wright, enjoyed her time across the pond as she tweeted: “I could live here! This beach is unbelievable I’m def in love x.”

During her Miami break, the 25-year-old revealed she came across some jellyfish, though she seems to have survived unscathed as she returned to UK soil today (March 28th).

Goodger has spoken publicly about her struggle with weight and image, having told Heat Magazine: “I think everyone looks at me and thinks, ‘she’s fat’. I hate the way I look.”
