Rebecca was sure to showcase her taut midriff and slender pins as she stretched out while sitting on a swing at the beach.
The racy cut-out detail of the strapless bikini top gave a glimpse of her ample cleavage, with Rebecca accessorising her beach look with a simple silver necklace and black sunglasses atop her head.
The reality star looked in her element as she seductively posed for the snap while her brunette tresses cascaded over her shoulder.

Throwback: Alongside a snap of her poking her tongue out, she penned: ‘Throwback to Marbella. swipe to see me now lol’
Currently in a romance with fellow Love Islander Biggs Chris, she recently shared a bikini throwback where she sported braids and discussed the backlash she received over the hairstyle.
Rebecca shared the photo with the caption: ‘I can’t remember the last time I worked out properly, I need to get back to it. I was between a size eight and a ten, depending on the dress.’
The star was then asked by a fan ‘why did you think it was okay to wear braids?’

She responded: ‘This questions always comes up. I’ve always worn braids, even when I was younger’ before showing a childhood throwback snap of her with the style.
In September, Rebecca defended herself after she was criticised for styling her hair in braids, which some of her followers claimed was ‘black fishing’.
She proudly showcased her new hairstyle in a picture with her boyfriend Biggs Chris, however she was quickly accused of cultural appropriation.
Fans were left unimpressed that she was sporting a hairstyle typically worn by black women, and took to the comments section to express their disapproval.

Blackfishing is a term used when someone adopts makeup or hair stylings to appear like they have black heritage.
One person wrote underneath a picture of her sporting the braids: ‘Hunny cultural appropriation looks so good on you must be why you continue to do it #pleasestop.’
While another said: ‘Girl you can’t wear that hairstyle…’
Another said: ‘I’d rethink the hair.’

However some of her followers supported her decision, with one writing: ‘I don’t understand the hate. If she appreciates the beauty of your culture and supports it, why are y’all so mad?’
After noticing the comments and receiving some private messages about her style choice, Rebecca took to her Stories to defend the choice.
She said: ‘So I’ve been going through my requests and I’ve got loads of awful messages which I don’t think is fair at all.
‘I’ve had messages saying I’m being disrespectful to people’s culture because of my hair but I wear braids all the time, just because I’ve got a few more braids downs meant I’m being disrespectful.’
‘I don’t want to hurt anyone I’m just being myself, I’m doing me. I’m literally just doing me. I had to get someone else to do it, because I can’t do it as good as this. Have you seen it they’re unreal.
‘Also thank you to everyone who has been sending me lovely messages and being so kind, I really appreciate it and I love you all.’
Having her say: Back in September Rebecca defended herself after she was criticised for styling her hair in braids, which some of her followers claimed was ‘black fishing’
