“Modern Family” actress Sarah Hyland posted a body-positive message on Instagram after her performance at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday.
Hyland, who performed her song with musician Jordan McGraw, opened up about not wearing shapewear to hide a small bump near her stomach area that’s the result of her kidney dysplasia.
“Thank you to my ever-changing self-confidence for making the decision to not wear Spanx and let my KUPA (kidney upper p—y area) shine like the badass b—- she is,” Hyland wrote in her Instagram caption.
Hyland has been open about her struggles with kidney dysplasia in the past, which has required her to get several kidney transplants.
