“I wore bikinis that were [too] small and not caring about how I look,” Cabello said of her “new bikini,” which she thought was a “cute outfit.”

After seeing photos and comments online, the singer shared in Saturday’s post that she was “so upset.”

“I remembered that when it impacted my self-esteem, I was thinking the thoughts of the culture and not my own,” she continued, adding, “A culture that has become so used to a picture of what a healthy the female body looks like it is absolutely not real for many women.
