Sarah Hyland Ditched The Spanx And Let Her Kidney Bump Show In A Recent Performance

Let that "KUPA" shine, girl!

Over the last six years Sarah Hyland β€” known for playing the lovely Haley Dunphy from Modern Family β€” has openly talked about her health issues, including receiving two kidney transplants.

And by sharing her struggles, she has inspired others to regain confidence in themselves.

today i learned that me and @Sarah_Hyland are scar twins my confidence has gone up a little bit :)

Earlier this year – at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party – Sarah defended her reason for wearing two pairs of Spanx.

But she has now kicked those Spanx to the curb!

In her caption, Sarah talked being both terrified and excited during her first nationally televised performance. Then, after thanking the fans and Fox network, she thanked her lil' kidney bump:

Although kidneys are normally located in the back, on each side of the lower spine, a transplanted kidney gets placed in the front, lower abdomen.

Women appreciated Sarah being her authentic self.

Dear Sarah and "KUPA," we love you!
