Los Angeles: Caitlyn Jenner says she was nowhere near ready to expose her body in a swimsuit after undergoing a gender transition, but now she has done it she found it "freeing".

The 65-year-old "I Am Cait" star - previously known as Bruce Jenner before undergoing a gender transition - was initially worried and nervous about exposing herself in swimwear, but now she has done it she felt she looked "pretty good", reported E! Online.

"It's kind of scary because, you know, you're exposing yourself. I'm about as nervous as can possibly be right now," Caitlyn said.

However, once she was in the pool with the support of her friends - who were cheering her on - Caitlyn soon became confident and described the whole experience as "freeing".

"Ok, I did it. I got the bathing suit on. It was nerve-racking, but it felt very freeing. And I did see my reflection in the glass door - looked pretty good," she added.
