Instagram vs reality- booty edition 🍑🌿
On the left I'm sucking in my tummy and flexing my legs while doing the oh so well known booty pop pose to make my booty look bigger. And on the right I'm standing straight with my tummy and whole body relaxed, which is what my body looks like most of the time ☺️ I'm not trying to target anyone with this post, because I've done it in the past too, cause sometimes you wanna post your most flattering booty picture and that's okay! I just want to show you guys that what you see isn't always reality, so you shouldn't get caught up on comparing your booty to someone else's booty.
But I know that's hard to just stop doing, lately I've been comparing my body to others (it happens to us all) and feeling like my booty has lost muscle and appeared smaller, because I always look at it from my straight standing, relaxed angle compared to all the posed booties I've been looking at. Butttt after taking this posed photo I've reminded myself that it really is just a matter of angles and bikini bottom/underwear positioning and I should love the body I have!
So next time you start feeling bad about your body scrolling through instagram (or anywhere) just remember that we usually only share our highlights/best photos and your body is just as beautiful as the body you're comparing it to, so don't be so hard on yourself!! As the saying goes: "Another persons’s beauty is not the absence of your own".
I hope this reminder helps and that you guys have a lovely, positive #friyay and a great weekend! 🌴☀️
PS my hair doesn't usually look like this- I just have an oil treatment in 😂
