Jessie James Decker is having the last laugh as she strips down to a tiny bikini amid her high-profile body-shaming storm. The 33-year-old reality star and Kittenish founder made headlines ahead of the weekend as a Reddit thread body-shamed her. Taking to Instagram in tears, the Jessie & Eric alum said the comments were “disgusting” as she admitted having gained a little weight.
Jessie was still making headlines for breaking down on-camera over the remarks when she updated her Instagram with the ultimate revenge: namely, looking super-fit and sensational while in a minuscule swim look.

Scroll for the photo. It all kicked off this week, when the South Beach Diet face stumbled across remarks over her weight. Addressing her 3.7 million Instagram followers while unable to fight back tears, the clothing designer said:
"“It’s pretty awful, and I cannot believe this is still happening in the world — that people are doing this. Yes, I have gained weight, 100 percent.”"
Jessie, who has famously lost weight after welcoming her three kids and landed her South Beach Diet gig as a result, continued that after years of being “obsessed” with the scale, she now eats what she wants. She also revealed her weight to be 115 pounds right now.
“I’m shaking because I cannot believe what I’m reading,” the wife to former NFL face Eric Decker continued: “It is hurtful, and I am such a strong, confident person, and I always have been, but it does hurt my heart a little that people are ripping every little thing about me apart.”
Decker had made headlines earlier this year for celebrating getting “new boobies” as she revealed a cosmetic breast job, one she doesn’t regret and said was the right decision for her. Definitely showing off the assets, Jessie updated on Thursday and with a sizzling and very muscly bikini snap.
Photographed with her workout body on full show and holding a cold beverage, Jessie stunned in a tiny striped bikini and patchwork blue hat. She made no mention of the storm, writing: “#cheers.” Fans know what’s been going on, though. Many are now telling the star that if this is what weight gain looks like, they’re waiting in line to join in.
“Let the haters be your motivators,” a popular comment reads.
In her tearful address, Jessie had also referenced daughter Vivianne, saying she hoped her little one doesn’t “grow up in a world” where this kind of hate is the norm. “It’s wrong,” she stated.
