SI - New year. Less clothing. And love yourself! At least that seems to be Haley Kalil’s new mantra!
In a steamy, topless snap shared to Instagram this week, the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit rookie poses on her bed, leaving little to the imagination as she encourages fans to embrace their bodies.
Haley has been outspoken on social media about her struggles with bullying and self-image at an early age.
“From being teased about my nerdy modeling on the playground in middle school….to shooting for THE Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, the @si_swimsuit #SISwimSearch CHANGED MY LIFE,” Haley wrote alongside a heartfelt post on Instagram. “It gave me the opportunity to pursue a lifelong dream I didn’t know was possible.
That’s what’s up! 2019 is the year we start embracing the bodies of the best looking people on the internet. I love it. All of us (as long as you don’t look like me) need to start being more comfortable with ourselves. Just think about the good ol’ days. Yep, talking about when everyone was a caveman and just walkin around naked, killing bison and woolly mammoths and the like with their bare hands

I guess my point is, if you’re hot, I believe in your right to be hot on Instagram. The losers and haters, of which there are many, will crumble and fall by the wayside if you keep loving who you are and showing the world.
Haley Kalil, a true inspiration.
