    Over the 4th of July weekend, Mindy decided to share some body positivity with the world when she uploaded these fabulous bikini shots on Instagram.

    "IDK who needs to hear this but… 🗣 WEAR A BIKINI IF YOU WANT TO WEAR A BIKINI," she wrote. "You don’t have to be a size 0."

    Preach, sis.

    In a follow-up video, Mindy spoke about how she overcame her shyness in regards to her body.

    "My very best friend in the world...is from Hawaii. And I would go and visit her when I was in college. And what I was struck about Hawaii is that everybody wears bikinis. It does not matter what your body type is. You rock a bikini. Because you're in Hawaii. And there's so much body positivity there that I who was always really shy about my body would wear bikinis."

    The former The Office star also made sure to note that her post was definitely NOT an ad for bikinis, but "if you want to buy ANY high waisted bikini and wear it, tag a pic so I can comment)!" she added.
