Tyra Banks is celebrating her birthday by spreading body positivity.

The supermodel posted a series of swimsuit-clad snaps for her 48th birthday on Saturday, sharing a message of self-love in the caption.

“It’s my BIRTHDAY!” Banks began. “And every year this BODY of mine keeps changing. My body of work and my body ody ody.”

“My body is fuller. And so is my mind,” she added. “Happy Birthday to all my fellow Sagittarius out there. Here’s to growing together, in more ways than one. 😉”

In the three photos, the former “America’s Next Top Model” judge showed off her smizing skills while wearing a black floral one-piece with a plunging neckline.

Heidi Klum, Kenya Moore and Kelly Cutrone were among the many celebrities wishing Banks a happy birthday in the comments. 

Fans also applauded her for the empowering message, with one writing in part, “thank you for sharing the important message that our bodies are changing which is normal!” while another added, “No matter your size you’re always beautiful.”

It’s hardly the first time Banks has championed body positivity in a swimsuit. In 2019, she came out of retirement to pose for the cover of the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, 23 years after she first fronted the bikini bible.

“I am telling people that beauty comes in all shapes, sizes and ages,” she said at the time. “I have to put my money where my mouth is. I have to make sure my message is pure.”

While she may be retired from modeling, Banks is never one to shy away from adventurous styles. She most recently brought her runway skills to the ballroom while hosting “Dancing With the Stars” in viral outfits ranging from a Britney Spears tribute to a style that sparked “Jurassic Park” comparisons.

“Everything is built for her this season,” stylist Eric Archibald previously told Page Six Style of the custom costumes, which he planned months in advance. “Tulles are dyed to match her skin tone. We do three or four fittings every week. Everything is [made custom] to her body.”
