“It’s OK to lose yourself from time to time,” she captioned her recent post, which shows her kneeling on a rocky beach.

Fans called her a “tropical queen” and a “mermaid” as she showed off her trim figure in the skimpy bikini top and skirt with cut-outs by SkinKini.

But some recalled how painful it would be just walking across rocky sand and commended her for her efforts.

“The sand looks like it might hurt the skin,” one person wrote.

“Huge props to you hun because I couldn’t even walk on that coral when I was there #nopainnogain,” another wrote.

“Surely hurting ya knees,” another comment read.

While another simply commented: “Ouch.”

Tammy is holidaying in Hamilton Island with her two children, Wolf and Saskia, and boyfriend Matt Poole.

A day earlier the Gold Coast-based beauty stepped out in the new bikini from Kim Kardashians’ Skims range, posing up a storm by the ocean in a series of snaps.


The photos also attracted thousands of comments and a staggering 390k likes from enamoured fans.

The stunning snaps defy the mixed reception the velour swimsuits from Kim’s range have received, with not everyone agreeing that the velvet-like bathers are indeed ‘fire’.
