Sur Instagram, les photos de corps parfaits, musclés et bronzés, ne manquent pas. Impossible de scroller tranquillement sa timeline sans tomber sur ça:
Face à cette tyrannie de la perfection, de plus en plus de jeunes femmes influentes sur les réseaux sociaux, suivies parfois par des millions de followers, ont décidé de montrer comment un angle flatteur, une belle lumière ou bien une pose précise peut transformer leur corps en quelques secondes.
Repérées par le magazine Health, ces femmes postent sur Instagram des photos avant/après avec, d’un côté, un cliché de leur corps parfait et, de l’autre, un cliché de leur corps au naturel.
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.
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 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 . .
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
10 second transformation photo 🙌🏼🌿 On the left I have my tights pulled up to cover up my tummy fat while flexing and on the right I’ve pulled down my tights, not coving my tummy fully, still flexing 😊 As you can see angles and the way your pants/body is positioned affects the way you look. I wanted to post this because I ate so much junk food this weekend and have so much water retention now. I went to a vegan expo yesterday and got to have so much delicious food and obviously ate all the food available. It was such an amazing experience and I wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much if I didn’t let myself try all of these foods. A year and a bit ago I would’ve felt so guilty for doing this. I would end up cutting my calories in half, worked out and done hours of cardio. I would’ve scrolled through Instagram and felt insecure about all the athletic girls thinking they probably don’t go through things like this because their willpower is stronger than mine, I’m just weak. But it’s really not like that!! I’ve said this so many times but I’ll say it again, please don’t ever feel like punishing yourself for the food that you eat. It’s all about balance and Instagram usually doesn’t show people from their worst angles. So please don’t compare your body to a picture of someone else’s! Enjoy the food you eat and the life you’re living, don’t over-stress about looking your best all the time!! ☺️ On a quick side note I just wanted to say that it was so lovely to be at this vegan expo, if you ever have one in your town, go and check it out, even if you’re not vegan! It’s a very eye opening experience and gurl, free food!! 😂 I also got to meet the lovely @oatmeal_and_optimism ☺️ 💕 I hope you all have a lovely #lazysunday and had a great weekend 🌴☀️ Sports bra from @movebytwenty3
“Vos bourrelets sont beaux”, “J’ai un bébé dessert”, “Moi 1% du temps vs. moi 99% du temps”: voilà les messages accompagnant les posts de ces instagrammeuses qui prônent le body positive, un mouvement né aux États-Unis qui encourage l’acceptation de son corps. On espère qu’elles seront de plus en plus nombreuses.
