Reality Check

I’ve been seeing so many women posting their best vs. normal posture photos next to each other. This trend is a really positive movement of self empowerment and is a real representation of the female body as an imperfect thing. So many models who post only “perfect” photos of themselves cause young girls to feel inadequate in their transition to adulthood. They see so many on the powerful vortex that is social media, that they assume it’s normal to be flawless. How could they assume differently? No one has imperfections on the internet! Now though, any women are choosing to show that you can be beautiful, without that photoshopped level of perfection. There’s something so satisfying and relatable about looking at a beautiful picture of someone compared to what they would look like 99% of the time. To me it makes them more beautiful, and loads more confident.

Here’s mine:

One thought on “Reality Check”

  1. I’m so glad this trend came in because I was one of those people who thought that these people were naturally posed… and would beat myself up because i’m nothing like the pictures you see all over social media. So refreshing for everyone to understand everyone pics their best pics etc.

    P.S you look great in both pics! 🙂
