Kelly Crump is turning up the heat on Instagram. The 2022 Swim search finalist, who made history with her feature in the Dominican Republic as the first woman to display a visible mastectomy scar in the magazine, is living her best life in the Maldives. 

The Stage 4 breast cancer survivor, who prefers to use the word “thriver,” donned a scrunchy and textured lilac bikini from Hunza G featuring a sweet bandeau style top and high-leg bottoms. Both pieces included a cute O-ring detailing.

Crump was captured from a lower angle, showing off her long and lean legs and sculpted figure. Her short blonde locks were damp and parted to one side and she struck a pose on a wooden dock in front of miles of sea green water and a breathtaking sunset.

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. – Walt Disney,” she captioned the post she shared with her 33,500 followers. “Have the courage ✨ I believe in you ✨.”

She tagged both the beachside Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spa and the Marriott Bonvoy.

“absolutely you beauty ❤️❤️,” Lyndsey Weston commented.

“You are just everything! So proud to be your friend my darling ❤️,” Candice Brown chimed.

“I'm here for this! Looking incredible as always 😍❤️🙌🏾,” a fan gushed.
