Having recently taken a break from Instagram after complaining cyber bullies made her feel anxious, the former Bachelorette turned radio presenter shared a full-body bikini pic with her fans.
‘Dear Sun. Please come out & hang out with us. K thanks, Sam,’ the 26-year-old captioned the pic.
And her followers were quick to comment on her slender frame.
While most users were supportive, others suggested Sam – who is reported to have lost 12kgs since first appearing on The Bachelor in 2014 - had taken her weight loss too far.
'Why did you lose so much weight?’ one follower said.
"Please people we all don't need to look like this to be beautiful."
"Too skinny," were the other criticisms.
However, loyal followers of Sam’s were quick to leap to her defense.
‘You're beautiful inside and out’.
‘Gorgeous at any size,’ another person wrote.
‘Isn't that the message we want to send to each other ladies. Stop with the negative comments'.
