Wow is right.
Jenni “JWoww” Farley showed off her post-baby bikini body while lounging poolside in Cancun, Mexico last week. The Jersey Shore star, who gave birth to daughter Meilani last July, went south of the border to celebrate friend Joei D Fox’s wedding and chronicled her vacation in a post, aptly titled “Throwback Thursday: Family Vacation in Mexico,” for her website.
“I did a bunch of exploring of the beautiful country with friends,” Farley, 29, wrote. “We checked out the Mayan ruins in Tulum the other day and we had a blast!”
Even traveling with her 10-month-old daughter was a breeze! “She was all smiles and laughs all trip long,” Farley exclaimed. Just like her mother, “she was the center of everyone’s attention," she added.
The star didn’t even mind the lack of cell phone service, calling it a “blessing in disguise.”
The relaxing trip hit a rough patch, however, when paparazzi photos of the star wearing a revealing two-piece bathing suit at the pool with Meilani alongside husband Roger Mathews, surfaced online. Farley responded to the negative comments by posting a collage of the photos on Instagram.
“I want to sit here and say that I’m embarrassed by these pictures but honestly I’m not,” she wrote as a caption. “I’m a new mom that loves to work out but also loves food as well.”
The reality show vet remained lighthearted in her rebuttal, pointing out a snapshot of herself picking a wedgie, “which is a pretty amazing photo in itself.”
Farley concluded the Instagram caption by imparting some wisdom on to her body-shaming haters. “Everyone love yourself and consider yourself #flawless.”
Despite the criticism, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s BFF doesn’t regret a thing. “I finally got to break out my bikini (which I was proud to wear and would wear all over again!).”
