The Modern Family star, 19, who styled her long red tresses in a beachy side braid, wore light blue Frankies Bikinis bathing suit bottoms while kneeling in the sand. In another pic, she bared her booty in the thong bikini and looked over her shoulder. “Happy #MemorialDay,” she captioned the photo slideshow.

The actress also took to her Instagram Story to share some snaps from the outing. She posted a Boomerang video of her boyfriend, Levi Meaden, playfully slapping her butt while they lounged on towels with another pal.

The couple, who started dating last fall, later attended Winter’s costar Sofia Vergara’s Memorial Day Paraiso Tropical Party. The Colombian actress, 44, shared a photo of Winter and Meaden, 29, posing with a parrot. Winter looked chic in a black dress and gold earrings while Meaden wore a blue jacket and white shirt.

Winter told Us Weekly in October that she had to learn to embrace her curves. "When I first got my curves I was so excited, but then people on the internet made me feel bad about it, and I thought, 'Do I need to change? Should I not love my body?' I even tried to hide it, but now I think my body is great," the Dove spokeswoman said. "I love my curves, and I do what I do, wear my clothes — revealing or covered up — and look fabulous while doing it! "
