Lena Dunham sure owns a lot of bright bikinis and she’s planning on using them all this summer. Good for her!

In a new series of photos that Lena, who last year launched a size-inclusive clothing collection, posted on Instagram, the 36-year-old actor posed in a variety of swimsuits from sustainable British brand Hunza G.

She captioned the photos, which include shots of black, purple, orange and green bikinis, "One piece two piece red piece blue piece."

The photo dump follows a post by Lena from last month in which she looks comfortable in a brown two-piece. She captioned the upload, "Sometimes I forget how important it is to wear a bikini." Clearly, Lena is now practicing what she preaches.

On the social media platform, fans got candid about the confidence that Lena, who got married to musician Luis Felber in September of 2021, clearly boasts. 

"My inspiration!," one comment reads.

"Influence me - I need to know where you got those bikinis from 😍," another person commented.

"I wish I had your confidence.. I look at you and think.. beautiful!," a dedicated fan noted. "You are a role model ❤️"

A lot of the comments are reminiscent of ones from last October, when Lena called out body shamers on Instagram.

"Over the years, I've shared many challenges with you and these moments of joy had me thinking that we should admit when we're happy too- it's not a crime," she wrote in an Instagram post then. "But all of this safety made me forget, for a moment, why I’ve created such intense boundaries with the internet over the past few years. It's a little too easy to feel the glow of support and forget about the cesspool lurking behind it- so I took a peek, and saw some gnarly shit, most not worth responding to or even sharing with you. But one narrative I take issue with, largely because it's a story I don't want other women, other people, to get lodged in their heads is that I should somehow be ashamed because my body has changed since I was last on television."

The star went on saying, "Firstly 'did Lena eat the cast of Girls' just isn't a very good joke- I could punch that up for the Tweeter. Secondly, it's ironic to have my body compared to a body that was also the subject of public scorn- an echo chamber of body shaming. But lastly, when will we learn to stop equating thinness with health/happiness? Of course weight loss can be the result of positive change in habits, but guess what? So can weight gain. The pics I’m being compared to are from when I was in active addiction with undiagnosed illness.”

Lena then opened up about the changes that time brought along with it: she got sober, became closer with her family and friends and met her current husband. 

"I say this for any other person whose appearance has been changed with time, illness or circumstance-it's okay to live in your present body without treating it as transitional," the Girls alumni then wrote in her caption. "I am, and I'm really enjoying it. Love you all." 

Right back at ya, Lena.
