Orange Is The New Black star Dascha Polanco opted for a bold look at New York Fashion Week, flashing the flesh in an outfit that showed off her curves.

The 33-year-old Dominican-American actress, who regularly talks about body positivity on her social media accounts, strutted her stuff on day five of Fashion Week in nothing but a one-piece swimsuit, teamed with a long, open jacket and a pair of high heels.

Polanco, who plays Dayanara Diaz in the Netflix hit, is just one of many Orange Is The New Black stars who looks vastly different out of character.

The actress has admitted that in the past she wasn't sure she'd make it in Hollywood because of her size - but she's now parlayed her starring role in OITNB into film roles and a modelling gig with the NFL Women's Apparel line.

"I've always been proud to be Latina, and I want to represent the Latina woman out there who is like me," said the self-described "thick girl".
