Nadia Bartel shares clever bikini picture trick: 'Stunning'

Former WAG Nadia Bartel has sent fan into a spin after sharing a clever trick she uses in her Instagram photos.

The 35-year-old uploaded a throwback snap from a holiday with friends a few weeks ago, where she can be seen standing on the edge of a pool wearing a bright blue bikini.

“Sooo when can we go back?!” she captioned the snap.

She went on to reveal to her followers the genius trick used in the photo, saying: “Thanks El for the sweet camera angle making me look a lot taller than I am”.

The person taking the camera appears to have been sitting down while Nadia was standing on the elevated poolside, making her legs appear longer than usual.

Fans were quick to comment telling Nadia how incredible she looks in the snap, with one person writing: “That ain’t no camera, that’s all you. You’re a hard working, fit, healthy, beautiful hot mama. Own it.”

Bec Judd commented with a fire emoji and Elyse Knowles said: “Girl”.

The eye-catching bikini is by Australian brand Triangl. The $135 set features a scoop neck bikini top and matching high waisted bottoms, both in a sea blue colour.

On Monday, Nadia and her ex-husband, Jimmy Bartel, shared Instagram photos of their five-year-old son Aston’s first day of school.

'So proud of my big boy. Officially a little preppy,” Nadia captioned a snap, which showed her dropping off her son at school.

“Aston is usually shy but took it all in his stride today and loved his first day, and is eager to head back tomorrow. Phew! Mumma on the other hand was emotional,” she wrote.

Nadia and Jimmy announced their separation in August 2019, with Nadia telling Stellar Magazine at the time: "This is never what I thought would happen. Every day is tough."
