She’s been open about her strug­gles with body im­age in the past, but these days, its clear Ricki-lee Coul­ter is lov­ing her curves.

“Be­ing com­fort­able in your skin isn’t about be­ing per­fect, be­cause no­body’s per­fect! It’s about be­ing ac­cept­ing of your so-called ‘im­per­fec­tions’ and ‘flaws’ and em­brac­ing your body and lov­ing your­self sick re­gard­less!” says the 32-year-old singer.

Just last week, Ricki-lee proudly showed off her fig­ure as she joined her hus­band Richard Har­ri­son and friends on a scuba div­ing jaunt while hol­i­day­ing in NSW hotspot By­ron Bay.

Dur­ing the trip, the for­mer Aus­tralian Idol star, who in the past has ad­mit­ted to hav­ing a “love-hate re­la­tion­ship with her body”, also took to so­cial me­dia to poke fun at her curves in a post cham­pi­oning body pos­i­tiv­ity and all sizes.

“Look at her butt... it is so big,” a friend can be heard say­ing in the can­did video shared on In­sta­gram, which shows Ricki-lee con­fi­dently wrig­gling her be­hind.

“Peo­ple don’t be­lieve me when I say I have a huge a**... I look like a big marsh­mal­low,” she wrote. “I guess I’m a pear.”

In 2010, the star over­hauled her life­style, em­bark­ing on a strict reg­i­men that saw her shed 30kg over four years, drop­ping from a cur­va­ceous size 14 to a size 8.

“I’m not one of those girls who is nat­u­rally thin and can eat what­ever I want. I am con­sis­tent with the food I eat day in, day out and I work my ass off in the gym… lit­er­ally!” she said at the time. “I eat the same clean foods every day, I train hard six days a week and don’t drink al­co­hol reg­u­larly.”

But Ricki-lee has since re­laxed her strict reg­i­men and is now em­brac­ing her fuller fig­ure. And with that she’s wel­comed a new out­look on life.

Ricki-lee was joined on the trip by her hus­band Richard (above). The singer showed off her curves dur­ing a scuba div­ing out­ing on the NSW North Coast.
