It was last May, after five months without publishing any image on her Instagram account, that the British singer Adele reappeared on the occasion of her 32nd birthday.
At that time, the artist caused a huge stir, as she appeared radiant and with a slimmer figure than ever.

From then on, he was seen on his account Instagram twice in June and once in August when, once again, she showed another makeover by showing off a curly mane.
However, it was Sunday August 30 when Adele sparked more comments, as she posted an image of her wearing a bikini top with the Jamaican flag and some leggings, where you can see a flat stomach and, without a doubt, a very slim figure.
