Lauren Simpson exuded confidence with her most recent photo upload as she showed the scars on her perfect physique to her Instagram followers on Sunday.
In the shared snapshot, the Australian fitness model sported a white one-piece swimsuit that showed off her chiseled figure. The suit featured a large cut-out over her midsection which exposed Lauren’s abs, and it was just as flattering to her lower body. The design was high-cut which help to showcase Lauren’s lean hips and legs.
Posing at a beach, Lauren lay on the sand while the photo was taken. Propping herself up with one elbow, she placed her other hand behind her head which helped showcased the muscle tone on her arm. One of her legs was placed on the sand while the other was raised.
Lauren wore her ash-blond hair loose in the photo. She seemed to sport bronze eyeshadow paired with black liner and mascara under her arched eyebrows. She also appeared to wear a dark brown shade of matte lipstick.

Never compare yourself to something that isn’t real. Social media is a highlights real. – It’s okay to love/embrace/accept your body WHILE wanting it to look, perform or feel differently that it does now – they don’t have to be mutual exclusive. – Take pride in how you care for yourself and make yourself a priority.
