Hunter McGrady and Sarah Nicole Landry are celebrating the launch of Knix's swimwear collection with a brand new, unedited photoshoot.

McGrady and Landry, known as The Birds Papaya on Instagram, posed alongside influencers Krystian Gabrielle and Deddeh Howard in a new campaign wearing the latest swimwear looks from the Canadian-based intimates and apparel line.

McGrady, a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, took to Instagram over the weekend to share photos from the campaign shot on-location in Barbados. The California-native model shared details of the size-inclusive shoot with followers and revealed that all photos from the campaign were completely unedited.

"Barbados has stolen my [heart] and so has this Knix swimsuit," the 28-year-old wrote, posing in a "jungle green" bikini with puff sleeve detail ( $115 CAD/ $100 USD). "On set doing a live photo shoot (which is so wild. We’re literally taking the photos and then they are uploading them directly to the site) today for the drop [of] Knix swim in the most breathtaking location with the most beautiful suits which are now live to shop on Knix.com sizes XS-4X!"

Fans couldn't get enough of the look, praising the star for her famous curves and "stunning" bikini.

"You look so beautiful in this colour,” one follower wrote.

“Gorgeous!” Another added. “Will we get to see you model every suit? Love seeing a body like mine represented!”

Landry, who has earned more than 2.1 million followers on Instagram thanks to her body neutral and body positive content, also shared images from the shoot to social media.

In one photo, the Canadian digital creator and mother-of-four posed in the surf wearing the brand's hot pink High Energy One Piece with zipper detail ($115 CAD/ $95 USD).

“I’m not even gonna try [to] caption this!” Landry said of the photo which was directed and photographed by McGrady.

Landry included a message of thanks to Knit and its founder, Joanna Griffiths.

“Thank you for this experience. Thank you for once again allowing me to be a part of something that has changed me as a person,” she wrote. “It’s an honour to work with you. It’s an honour to be a part of the beginning and the middle and whatever is next.”

Followers flocked to the comments to thank Landry and Knix for putting together a campaign that celebrates different body types.

"What an amazing experience. It must be so amazing to work with a company that so clearly values you! I ordered two bathing suits already; haven’t been in a bathing suit for years," one person wrote. "Your body looks like mine. You look beautiful, and I want to feel beautiful too."

"Just stunning! You’re radiating confidence," someone said. "So good for your soul!"

"Stunning!" another echoed. "This looks like such an amazing experience, and it’s honestly so inspiring!"
