Natasha Oakley has carved a lucrative niche for herself as an Instagram bikini model.

She's also been busted numerous times using filters and photo-editing tools to make herself look as flawless as possible in her posts – and last year, she finally admitted as much.

Now, though, it seems she prefers to credit high-intensity interval training, yoga and clean eating for her bodacious bikini bod.

"I crave salads and vegetables. I'll have a healthy breakfast, a salad for lunch and fish and vegetables for dinner," she told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"I work out three or four times a week with high-intensity training: yoga if I'm in Bali or Miami; paddle-boarding and surfing in Hawaii."

Until last year, speculation had run rampant that the bikini blogger airbrushed her Instagram pics.

In 2016, she finally came clean, admitting she sometimes edits her snaps.

“'I think that everyone is doing that (retouching) because of what they see in the media,” she told the Daily Telegraph.

“I think with the general population are just trying to follow exactly what they see with pictures being edited.”

But Tash says she didn’t mean to deceive her fans, she did it to feel better about herself.

“I’m human and a natural curvy woman," she added. "But for me, it’s really more about feeling good in myself, and healthy and fit."

If you’ve been living under a rock and aren’t sure who Tash is, she’s the Aussie model who launched the blog A Bikini a Day with Devin back in 2012.

Fast forward a few years to 1.8 million Instagram followers and a successful swimwear company later, the bikini blogger says she knows what works when it comes to rocking the right bikini for your shape.

“I for one love my body, I work hard, I live a healthy lifestyle and proud of what I see in these photos,” Tash wrote on her Instagram last year.

“All women should feel this way and should feel free and happy within their own lives.”
