The Modern Family actress was one of many stars who spoke out to defend Kim’s famous mirror selfie after the reality star faced widespread criticism last week. Then Ariel shared a bikini selfie on Instagram proving that she’s not afraid to show off her body following a recent breast reduction. Deciding what to wear after a swimwear shopping spree, the 18-year-old asked her followers, "For #springbreak or nah?" The looping clip shows the actress wearing a green print two-piece with her gorgeous new red hair colour as she shrugs in the mirror.

For #springbreak or nah?

Although she’s comfortable with her body now, Ariel once struggled with back pain and had to strap her 32F breasts down to play the teenage character Alex Dunphy on the American comedy show. At the age of 17, the actress had a breast reduction going from a 32F to a 34D (check out our before and after page for more information). Winter spoke about her decision to have surgery, saying: "It's really difficult to be such a small girl and have so much weight on your chest. You physically hurt. You can't find clothes that fit right. I couldn't find a cute bathing suit." Obviously spoilt for choice now, her new found body confidence shows the teenager is finally happy in her own skin and is not afraid to speak out against bodyshaming. Taking to Twitter, Ariel came to Kim K’s defence, tweeting: 'I think everyone, men and women, should have the right to choose what they do with their bodies-- and not be criticized.' And it looks like her comments didn’t go unnoticed. Kim responded by sending the comedy star a bunch of flowers with a note that read: “Ariel – Hey I wanted you to know I saw your tweets last week and I really appreciate your support. Women supporting other women is so powerful! xoxo Kim”
Ariel shared a photo of the flowers captioned: "I gotchu @kimkardashian always xo."
