Ya nos lo decían nuestras abuelas: tener una buena postura es fundamental, pero son estas fotos del antes y el después que algunas instagramers han subido a la red social las que nos han terminado de convencer del todo.
Que levante la mano quién no se haya sentido mal con su cuerpo después de una sesión en Instagram. Efectivamente, esta red social es un universo en el que parece que no existen los michelines, la celulitis, las arrugas o las estrías. Pero en el fondo todo tiene su truco. Y no, nos referimos a los filtros que todos hemos usado una y otra vez o a los estupendos programas de retoque fotográfico.
Simplemente con un cambio de postura puedes conseguir maravillas. Ni dietas, ni maquillaje, ni la luz. Las instagramers que os mostramos hoy han publicado fotos de Antes y Después en las que sólo han cambiado la postura o el ángulo desde el que se fotografían y las diferencias son abrumadoras.
Your fat rolls are beautiful🙌 ⬆️I made a video about them (link in my bio)⬆️ And the reason we have been lead to believe they aren't is because we don't see them in the media unless someone's being shamed for weight gain or ridiculed for their body. This is NOT the truth and not OK. Having rolls of skin / fat that are soft / squidgy or big / small does not define your beauty. I wanted to show you how my body looks when I'm relaxed and when I'm posing right next to each other so you can see how easy it is to manipulate how a body looks. (I filmed myself doing this for you on my YouTube) As a model in the industry 13years I've seen nearly all the pics chosen of me for lingerie & swimwear shoots are the ones where my stomach looks flattest. Which for a long time lead me to believe that's how I should look. Because even if I did happen to have a few shots where I'm in a position you can see back fat or rolls someone had decided it's more "beautiful" "aspirational" or will inspire more customers to buy the product if those so called "flaws" don't exist. But things are changing I remember the first time I saw curvier models in editorials with their rolls and back fat and I remember the first time I shot with @aerie and they wanted me to not pose but be real and just myself. Then when I saw my first campaign with them and I could see my unretouched body - pics with rolls / back fat I'm not gonna lie I was shocked. That quickly turned into joy because they made me feel good enough and knew that those "flaws" didn't mean I wasn't beautiful in fact showing that their models didn't have to be "flawless" was incredibly empowering. So thank you #AerieReal and everyone who created the movement it's not just game changing but life changing ILY😘 And that's why when I started my insta about 3years ago I created the #everyBODYisbeautiful bc we are more than the sum of our perfections we are all beautiful equal souls living in imperfectly perfect bodies.
La manera en la que giras tus caderas o la posición de tus hombros puede conseguir que la misma persona parezca otra realmente diferente en cuestión de segundos. O que el número de likes se triplique.
La modelo británica Iskra Lawrence es una de las defensoras de reforzar nuestra autoestima y no desperdicia ninguna ocasión para lanzar mensajes a sus followers sobre el tema: que no veamos michelines en las redes no significa que no existan, es su mensaje.
Same girl, same day, same time. 💛 Not a before and after. Not a weight loss transformation. Not a diet company promotion. 💛 I am comfortable with my body in both. Neither is more or less worthy. Neither makes me more or less of a human being. Neither invites degrading comments and neither invites sleezy words. 💛 We are so blinded to what a real unposed body looks like and blinded to what beauty is that people would find me less attractive within a 5 second pose switch! How insanely ridiculous is that!? 💛 I love taking these, it helps my mind so much with body dysmorphia and helps me rationalise my negative thoughts. 💛 Don't compare, just live for you. There is no one on this planet who's like you and that's pretty damn amazing don't ya think. The world doesn't need another copy, it needs you. 💛 We are worthy, valid and powerful beyond measure 💙🌟 (If you don't pull your tights up as high as possible are you really human?)
Me 1% of the time vs. 99% of the time. And I love both photos equally. Good or bad angles don't change your worth ❤️ I recently came across an article talking about how one woman stated she refuses to accept her flaws, because she doesn't see them as flaws at all. I LOVED that because it sends such a powerful message that our belly rolls, cellulite, stretch marks are nothing to apologize for, to be ashamed of, or to be obsessed with getting rid of! As I'm getting older, I have cellulite and stretch marks that aren't going away, and I welcome them. They represent a life fully lived (for 28 years so far :)) and a healthy life and body at that. How can I be mad at my body for perfectly normal "flaws"? This body is strong, can run miles, can lift and squat and push and pull weight around, and it's happy not just because of how it looks, but because of how it feels. So when you approach your journey, I want you to remember these things: I will not punish my body I will fuel it I will challenge it AND I will love it 💗💗💗 If you're following my page, you're a part of helping me spread this message and creating this movement - thank you. #fbggirls www.annavictoria.com/guides
La estrella de Instagram Anna Victoria también nos muestra sus michelines. Y sobre todo, que un buen ángulo puede conseguir maravillas para ocultarlos... o para hacerlos realmente evidentes. ¿El mensaje que más nos gusta? Que los buenos o los malos ángulos no cambian lo que vales de verdad.
BLOATING 😩 I've been feeling pretty stressed the past few weeks and have suffered with severe bloating most days, not sure why 🤔 But yesterday it hit a whole new level 😭 I want this photo to prove that no, I don't walk around with abs every day. In fact, it's a shock if I still have them by lunchtime 😂 (this is me standing normally, not pushing my stomach out) So just a little reminder to use IG for inspiration and to motivate you rather than to compare yourself to! A bad day yesterday led me to comfort eat all day - binge eating at it's finest I tell you 😂 We're only human and all of us slip up sometimes. I was about to start getting annoyed at myself then @claudetteannaliese reminded me 'one day will not make you fall off track' which is SO 👏🏻 FLIPPING 👏🏻 TRUE 👏🏻 If you have a day of eating whatever you want.. WHO CARES! Wake up the next day, make a plan and get back to it 👊🏻 As I've clearly proved, everyone goes through the exact same struggles! We're all here to support each other through the good AND the bad 😚💛 . Oh and soz about the red face/wet hair look 🙈 Pic was taken post workout! If anyone has any tips for cutting out certain foods from bloating please let me know 🙏🏻☺
Otras veces no es cuestión de ángulos o poses, sino de que todos somos humanos y a veces nos sentimos hinchados, algo nos ha sentado mal o nos hemos dado un pequeño atracón. Como comenta Lucy Baker de The Fit Life, todos pasamos por las mismas dificultades.
✖️✖️Perfectly Imperfect✖️✖️ This was definitely not the photo I intended to share. I realize Instagram is mostly a highlight reel and we share our very best photos but I want to be as real and transparent as I can with all of you beauties and show the 'imperfect' along with the highlights. Guys, I've had 3 beautiful babies.. that's 3 giant pregnancies.. along with 3 chances of stretch marks.. This body has been through a whole lot of changes! For that reason I will never judge someone else for their body. I don't know their story or what they've been through or the true strength that is within them. Imperfections make you real, approachable, human and one of a kind ❤️ #perfectlyimperfect #30secondtransformation
I have something to tell you... I have a dessert baby! Haha! 🤣 . ⬅️ On the left is my belly when I'm not bloated & standing with a "tight tummy" or what I call "good posture". . ➡️ On the right is my tummy VERY bloated after eating dessert last night! (It was SO worth it by the way 😃). . Perfection doesn't exist, which is easy to forget when we spend so much of our time on social media being bombarded by "perfect bodies" - or what "appears" to be. . So here's a reminder from me that I bloat.. I also have stretch marks, cellulite and pimples (as you may have seen in previous posts). I'm nowhere near perfect.. and that's fine by me! ☺ . #perfectnever #foodbaby #bloated #emilyskye . . @emilyskyefitness . .
Para Emily Skye la perfección no existe, lo que resulta difícil creer cuando nos están bombardeando constantemente a través de las redes sociales con cuerpos ideales. Pero detrás de cada una de las imágenes que vemos hay una planificación que responde a una intencionalidad. No lo olvidemos jamás.
⭐️SelfLove Bootcamp w/Kenzie & Gina⭐️ DAY 16: EMBRACE THE SQUISH · Okay guys, NEITHER of these pics have been edited, retouched, photoshopped, etc. They were taken about 30 seconds apart, this morning at the same camera angle. I am literally twisting my body so far that my stomach disappears on the left. 👉🏼If you would have come across the picture on the left only, some of you may have thought, "omg that girl is so skinny, I wish I looked like that" 👉🏼This is the problem with the internet. A lot of women only post pictures like the one on the left & at the exact same time they also look like the picture on the right, but if we only see the skinny pic, we think they "have the perfect body" & internalize the idea that we don't. 👉🏼This is not true for everyone, but it is true for ALOT of women. 👉🏼Today in SelfLove Bootcamp, we are working to #embracethesquish 💓 Embracing those parts of our bodies where our skin rolls, squishes & sags. Because they are NORMAL parts of all bodies. 99% of the reason we feel they are bad, gross, make us look ugly, make us not sexy is because of the airbrushed & mutated images we see 10 million times a day everywhere we look. 👉🏼LADIES & MEN: The rolls are sexy, beautiful & natural. No matter how big or small they are. 👉🏼At the same time, I know they give you anxiety & make you feel all the negative thoughts, whether you have an ED, BDD or not. I honor those feelings you have & share them with you at times. We are all human & it is impossible to escape the beauty standards that have been placed upon us. 👉🏼I want you to know that your body, naturally, as it is right now is enough. 👉🏼Try not to compare yourself to images you see, those photos should not control your happiness, your self-worth or how you feel about your body. 🔥🔥Keri Washington said "You cannot compare your insides to another person's outsides" ☝🏼 REMEMBER THAT WHEN YOU'RE FEELING LOW. 〰 LOVE, SUPPORT & POSITIVITY 💘xo #thereisnowrongwaytobeawoman #SelfLoveBootcamp #beforeandafter
20 hour transformation photo 😁🌿 Since it's the day after thanksgiving I thought it'd be appropriate to share this photo 😬 The first photo was taken yesterday morning after working out, the second was at night after eating a whole bunch of food with my whole tummy relaxed and the third was this morning again after working out 🏋🏻 I've posted a photo like this before but I just wanted to remind you that it's normal for your stomach to get bigger after large meals and that our bodies don't look the same throughout the day! I know I get pretty bloated looking after I eat a lot and that used to really upset me because I thought there was something wrong with me and that nobody else's tummy looked like this after eating but I realised its just not shown or talked about a lot. So I just wanted to show what my relaxed food baby tummy looks like compared to my empty, post workout tummy. I'm learning to love my body in ALL its forms, not just when it looks lean and toned because I know I don't look like that all day. It's time for me to love and appreciate the body I have and stop striving for "perfection" ☺️ Anyway, I hope you all had an amazing thanksgiving, got some delicious food in and spent quality time with your family and friends!! 🌴☀️
A veces la diferencia es realmente sutil, pero suficiente para que nos demos cuenta de lo muchísimo que se puede conseguir con un pequeño gesto. La instagramer Girlxfit tomó estas fotos con una diferencia de un minuto, en una estaba totalmente relajada y en la otra, no.
