Actress and reigning sexiest woman in the country Jessy Mendiola is no stranger to online bashing and body-shaming.

After FHM Philippines voted her as the No. 1 Sexiest Woman in the Philippines, netizens criticized her for having a full figure. The 24-year-old has taken the comments in stride, particularly on social media.

In a recent Instagram post, Jessy shared a sexy photo of her in a striped bikini, which she said she borrowed from actress Angelica Panganiban.

Her caption: di pako masyadong nagtakaw niyan kaya flat tyan ko.

(My stomach is flat here since I didn’t eat so much.)

While most netizens praised her for looking gorgeous in the swimsuit, still there were comments about her body.

One asked why she looked big on TV:

Jessy told the commenter that TV adds 10 pounds, and said that because she has full hips, she looks even wider on the silver screen:

Another netizen told her to keep dieting and exercising to always have a flat midriff:

But the brunette beauty simply defended her love for food:

“Eating’s just so good!” she answered.

The showbiz star is clearly comfortable in her skin, and boyfriend and TV host Luis Manzano doesn’t seem to mind the curves anyway, based on his comment on her photo:

The two used to consistently deny they were a couple until early this year, when Jessy called the 36-year-old actor her “partner” in the talk show “Tonight with Boy Abunda”. JB
