Clara posted a series of candid snaps which showed her going bra-free.
In the pictures, she wore nothing other than a pair of black underwear and a little crop top that showed off her lean tum.
She looked happy and confident as she posed for the camera and showed off her slender bod.
Her content works to celebrate the bodies of smaller people, and show that women can be and feel beautiful even if they don't have the famous Kardashian-like curves.
As she modelled a top that contained the caption "no bra club", Clara said: "My shirt said it all.
"I haven’t worn a bra in four years and never looked back!
"I used to wear padded/wired/push up bras whenever I went out and it was sooo uncomfortable.
"I honestly think we all look better without all the extra padding!
"Giving up bras was one of the best things I did for my confidence.
"It helped me to truly learn to accept and love the look and feel of my flat chest.
"And yes… people do stare sometimes but honestly I’m done with caring about what other people think more than doing what really feels good to me.
"Do whatever makes you happy and feel best in."
Since Clara shared the defiant snaps more than 10,000 people have liked them.
More than 200 people also left comments thanking the content creator for the work she does, and to share their own bra-ditching stories.
One person said: "I've been in the no bra club for a while, and it's just so comfortable that I don't want to go back to wearing bras ever again."
Another commented: "You are the reason I feel ok not wearing a bra. I'm not afraid to show off my 32AAs."
Meanwhile, a third person added: "I also gained SO much confidence when I stopped wearing bras. Such a game changer."
