Selena Gomez says she feels more confident than ever.

The Ice Cream singer took to Instagram recently wearing a powder blue La’Mariette swimsuit and opened up about her recovery after the 2017 surgery, which followed her lupus diagnosis.

"When I got my kidney transplant, I remember it being very difficult at first showing my scar," she told fans. "I didn’t want it to be in photos, so I wore things that would cover it up. Now, more than ever, I feel confident in who I am and what I went through... and I’m proud of that."

Speaking to her friend Theresa Mingus, founder of La’Mariette, she added: "Congratulations on what you’re doing for women, launching @lamariette whose message is just that... all bodies are beautiful."
