On Tuesday, Ariel – who previously said she hated to wear swimsuits before undergoing breast reduction surgery – was seen posing up a storm on the beautiful white sandy beach in an itsy bitsy white bikini.

Doing her best Baywatch impression, the smiling 18-year-old made a splash as she flaunted her enviable frame as she strolled along the beach and played around on the sand.

Following the current trend, Ariel opted for a pretty white string bikini which featured a gold chain halter strap as well as a gold chain detailing around the waist.

Last summer the star underwent breast reduction surgery after admitting she had “struggled” for years.

The actress, who was 17 at the time, went from an F to a D cup.

“It’s hard when you’re a teenage girl and you already have a lot of ridicule and then you pile on more, and it’s kind of… it just gets too much. We live in a day and age where everything you do is ridiculed.

“The Internet bullies are awful. I could post a photo where I feel good, and 500 people will comment about how fat I am, and that I am disgusting.”
