Nina Agdal is certainly having a good time in the sun.

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model recently shared to Instagram showcasing her bikini body on the beach. According to U.K.’s DailyMail, Agdal has been spending lockdown in the Hamptons with her boyfriend, Jack Brinkley Cook.

The 28-year-old star wore a gold and maroon string bikini as she posed on the beach with the ocean visible behind her in the picture.

She previously dated actor Leonardo DiCaprio before they split in 2017, U.K.’s DailyMail revealed. Agdal was 25 at the time. The actor is dating model Camila Morrone currently.

Agdal got personal on Instagram and shared how a magazine once body-shamed her in 2018. In September 2019, the Danish star told Fox News she wants to encourage her female followers to embrace their curves and so-called imperfections, particularly on social media.

“It’s definitely been super important for me to speak up about it,” Agdal said at the time. “A little more than a year ago I had an incident where a magazine came out and said that I was too big for the magazine, the clothes, and I wasn’t the image that they thought I was going to be. And that made me really upset, I hadn’t spoken out about how I have been bullied or… body shamed, in the industry.”

“And just me speaking up about it… [a] number of women and parents and moms and girls are responding to it, saying, ‘Thank you so much for being open about this, the fact that you’re dealing with it,’” Agdal recalled. “‘I deal with this on an everyday basis and you speaking up is hopefully just going to try to make this world a better place in terms of this body shaming.’”

Today, I’m disappointed and appalled at the still very harsh reality of this industry. A few months ago, I agreed to shoot with a creative team I believed in and was excited to collaborate with. When my agent received an unapologetic email concluding they would not run my cover/story because it “did not reflect well on my talent” and “did not fit their market,” the publisher claimed my look deviated from my portfolio and that I did not fit into the (sample size) samples, which is completely false. If anyone has any interest in me, they know I am not an average model body – I have an athletic build and healthy curves. After a tough year of taking a step back from the insensitive and unrealistic pressures of this industry and dealing with paralyzing social anxiety, I walked into that shoot as a 25 year old WOMAN feeling more comfortable in my own skin and healthier than ever before. Some days I’m a sample size, some days I’m a size 4, some a 6. I am not built as a runway model and have never been stick thin. Now more than ever, I embrace my curves and work diligently in the gym to stay strong and most of all, sane. I am proud to say that my body has evolved from when I started this crazy ride as a 16 year old GIRL with unhealthy and insufficient eating habits. So, shame on you and thank you to the publisher for reaffirming how important it is to live your truth and say it out loud, no matter who you are or what size. I decided to release an image to draw awareness and support of an issue that's bigger than just myself and affects so many people not just in the fashion industry, but in general, with the goal of bringing women from all over together in a celebration of our bodies. Let's find ways to build each other up instead of constantly finding ways to tear each other down. #bodyshaming #bodyimage #selfimage #dietculture #mybodymybusiness

“So if I can make one girl realize that because you’re not a size zero, you’re still just as beautiful and you’re perfect the way you are, that makes my day,” she continued. “And the moms coming up to me and being like, ‘Thank you so much. I have a daughter and the fact that you’re talking up about this and changing the perspective on it. That’s really important.’ — that’s just great.”

Agdal admitted that despite being a sought-after model, some days are easier than others when it comes to feeling confident.

“Some days I wake up and I’m feeling low and I don’t feel great about myself,” she explained. “I think that’s OK too. And then on other days, I’m… fun and happy Nina. But I think it just comes from a lot of years of just getting to know myself, doing what feels right, self-care and really practicing it every single day. And talking to yourself in a different way.”

“It really just takes yourself to stop when you do it and be like, ‘You know what? This is not OK. I wouldn’t speak to anyone else like this so why am I even talking to myself like that?’” she shared. “But that being said, there are days where I want to crawl into a hole and I don’t feel great about myself… then I come out on the other side and I’m like, ‘OK, let’s get after it.’”
