Los Angeles: Reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner shed her inhibitions about exposing her body in a swimsuit after undergoing a gender transition to flaunt a white, sexy number with her friends. And she felt she looked "pretty good".

"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 while contemplating wearing a swimsuit during the filming of her show "I Am Cait", reports femalefirst.co.uk.

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

 It was very freeing, says Caitlyn Jenner as she flaunts swimsuit post gender transition

"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 said.

During the previous episode of the show, the 65-year-old aired her concerns about wearing a swimming costume and said that's somewhere she has "got to get and it's going to take time".

The former "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star had said on "I Am Cait": "This process of coming out doesn't happen overnight. There are so many hurdles to overcome. Every day it seems like, 'What about a bathing suit?' See, I can't even say it.

"It's hard for it just to come out saying 'a bathing suit.' But that's where I got to get and it's going to take time."
