Last month, Ballerini posed in unretouched underwear photos for a campaign for Aerie. She shared one of the images on Instagram and used the caption to share her excitement around the campaign.

"Honestly, if ya would’ve told me a few years ago I’d be in a campaign in my undies with zero retouching...I woulda...but I’m proud of the personal growth I’ve had recalibrating my relationship with my body and what feels healthy, strong, and sustainable for myself and lifestyle. vulnerable? yes, but happy. thanks @aerie for having me along for the reallll ride," she wrote.

Throughout her career, she has been open about the importance of self-love and being real with her fans. In an interview with People in August, Ballerini opened up about her own struggles with self-esteem.

"I've really found that for me, finding the things that make me feel confident and rooted that I can go to on days where I wake up and I'm not wanting to be in my skin. Then I'm like, 'Do a workout that makes you feel strong. Go write a song that makes you feel empowered and smart," she said. "Having those things for each person is super important to find."
