“I am not disparagingly saying that you did this to advertise because you are raising awareness and that is what advertising is for.

“Nobody should have to accept abuse or bring disgust to people, but you have to accept that some people criticize and say it is inappropriate.”

Ulrika replied, “First of all, 99 percent of the answers I got were positive.

“Second, it’s a naked body and we all have one.

“Yes, I was very nervous about posting it and sat in the photo for a couple of weeks before I got the nerve to post it.”

She added, “This is mainly because the vast majority of women are likely to be dissatisfied with their body shape because we feel under a lot of pressure.
