A body positivity influencer has slammed online critics who trolled her for posting videos and photos wearing a tiny bikini.

Emily Bispo, who wears an Australian size 16, often shares snaps of herself wearing swimsuits and is praised for flaunting her body.

However, she claims she has been told to "cover up" because her bikini body is "unflattering" by trolls commenting on her posts.

Unphased by the troll's comments, Emily lifts up her sunglasses and stares into the camera.
