Cellulit, rozstępy, nadwaga? Nieee, to niemożliwe w idealnym świecie mediów społecznościowych. Oglądamy zdjęcia blogerek, gwiazd, celebrytek i zastanawiamy się: „Hej, co jest ze mną nie tak, że nie mogę wyglądać tak jak ona?”.
Nie ma co się przejmować, bo „ona” wygląda dokładnie tak samo jak ty. Tylko wepchnięta w ogromny internetowy świat dostosowała się do standardów tam panujących. Wie, że by nie być zjedzoną przez hejterów, trzeba być piękną i szczupłą, reprezentować się na zdjęciach doskonale. Na szczęście coraz częściej kobiety pokazują jaka jest różnica między rzeczywistością a tym, co oglądamy na mediach społecznościowych. Brytyjska modelka i trenerka personalna Chessie King na swoim Instagramie postanowiła pomimo negatywnych komentarzy na swój temat pokazać, jak wygląda na zdjęciach robionych spontanicznie, a na tych pozowanych do Instagrama.
Dystans do siebie i pokazanie swojej sylwetki bez filtrów, ustawek napawa nadzieją, że jakbyśmy tylko chciały i dobrze się ustawiły do zdjęcia, wyglądałybyśmy idealnie.
“BOOTY GOALS” 🍑 “OH MY GOD I WANT YOUR BUM”… you see these kinda comments all over your newsfeed, but would you see those kinda comments on the right photo?! 🤷🏼♀️ Neither of these photos are edited or photoshopped, same bottom just 2 completely different angles. Are you hooked on growing your peach to look like your favourite instagram girl? Have you ever thought maybe they have what I’ve got on the right: the dimples, the uneven cheeks, the bit I like to call the “second booty” (that bit underneath your bottom). I used to be extremely conscious of the back of my legs & if anyone was walking behind me whilst I was in swimwear I’d cover my booty & my legs because I was so embarrassed. I still find it a little bit scary sharing the right photo but I’m in my happy place, stuffing myself with popcorn! 🍿 & if it helps at least one of you to realise it’s OKAY to have imperfections then it was worth me pooing my pants a little. So next time you look in the mirror & see something similar to the right photo, just have a little word with yourself, I gat it too gurlll. You’re not alone 🙋🏼♀️🧡❤️💛
Do you ever look at ‘Instagrammers’ & wonder how they look so ‘perfect’? 👸🏼 Sometimes it’s surgery, sometimes it’s an easy 5 minutes on an editing app. I’ve never had any work done on my face or my body but I have nothing against those who do have minor procedures done to help their confidence. I wear makeup & play around with products to ‘enhance’ my features. However, heavily editing & changing features is deceiving, unfair & gives girls of all ages an unachievable idea of ‘reality’. I see some Instagram profiles & can see right through their editing; ‘Blurring’ skin, enlarging lips, changing the shape of their face… (it’s a little more than just upping the saturation) if you saw them in real life you probably wouldn’t recognise them! 🙅🏼👱🏼♀️ Aspire to be happy, aspire to feel confident in yourself without having to edit your photos like the right one. Stop comparing yourself to ‘perfected’ photos on Instagram, you are naturally beautiful 💛 Post udostępniony przez C H E S S I E K I N G (@chessiekingg)
SERIOUSLY THOUGH… why do all my friends look like absolute goddesses after a workout WITH NOT ONE LITTLE BIT OF SWEAT ON THEM! 🙅🏼💦 Put your hand up if your the left, like me & sweat more than humanly possible & tag your friend who comes walking out the gym ready to step on the catwalk! @mathewlcarter is the only other human I’ve found to sweat as much as me… one of the million reasons why we’re made for each other 💃🏼🕺🏼 #sweatyhumansunite
„I wish I had smaller legs” „I wish I had bigger boobs” „I wish a flatter tummy” Put your hand up if you’ve thought at least one of the above? 🙋🏼🙋🏼🙋🏼(3 times because I’ve said them all). Well guess what, you CAN have all 3, without any hard work, any sense of achievement, all in the space of a few seconds & an editing app 🙄 I’ve pumped up my melons & peach, slimmed down my legs & pulled in my tummy to show you how easy it is to do. YOU DON’T NEED big boobies or a huge bottom or a sucked in tummy to be amazing, it’s all about you as a person. It’s what’s going on in that head of yours & the energy that oozes out of you that matters. No matter how ‚confident’ I feel in my body, there’s always a teeny tiny voice in my head that comes through. If I looked at the photo on the left a year ago I would’ve seen chunky thighs & would’ve wished to look like the photo on the right BUT now I see strong, powerful thighs that can deadlift 90kg+. The body shape on the right is definitely achievable with hard work for some people but for others, like me, it’s unachievable. We just gatta accept that one of our legs is bigger than some people’s legs put together! A really important thing for me is that when people see me in real life, they see exactly what they say on here. If I edited my photos like the right, people would see me face to face & be like HELLLLL SHE DOUBLED IN SIZE (& got a boobiejob) So before you go ‚wishing’ you were that girl on instagram looking like the right photo, think about a few things… 1. She’s probably worked very hard for that hot bod. 2. Everybody is a different shape, some people, no matter how many times they workout a week & eat well won’t be able to get those proportions! 3. The photo could’ve been played with a little. Smoothed, edited, ‚touched up’… Disclaimer: My whole body is made out of popcorn & my thighs are clearly the hungriest part of me 🍿👀 Post udostępniony przez C H E S S I E K I N G (@chessiekingg)
We’ve all seen hundreds of these but they really do help me 1. Be honest with you & 2. Feel body confident in myself 💃🏼 I’ll let you into a little secret… @mathewlcarter was snapping away like the amazing boyfriend he is & I stopped half way through to say I really felt uncomfortable. He asked why & I said I just feel like my legs look chunky. You see so many girls on their tiptoes ‚posing’ & I’m guilty of it too. It makes your legs look leaner & longer… but in reality, yes I am nearly 6 foot & I’m lucky to have long legs, but they are still the part of my body I feel conscious of. I know some of these 2 photo ‚posing’ ‚natural’ posts are done wrongly & they actually make you feel worse about your body, but a lot are done in the right way & really help me. Even though I preach body confidence & ‚embracing the wobble’ I still have moments where I feel like I want to hide my legs… but what’s different is how I deal with it. I give myself a little prep talk & shake off that negativity & remind myself what they do for me! They carry me round every day & are strong mother f🍿🍿kers. I then just stopped ‚posing’ & smiled the biggest smile I possible could & it completely changed my mood. It’s okay to find your ‚pose’ you feel comfortable in in photos, the tiptoe, the hip to the side, the one leg in front of the other… but it’s even better to feel comfortable just standing flat foot on the ground, smiling like the grinch 🙋🏼 Rashie – @une_piece @seen_group 🍉
THE MAGIC OF MAKEUP… 👀💄 Hot sweaty mess to Wimbledon ready in just half an hour. All you need is a shower, a bucket full of makeup, a curler & you’re ready to go 🎾🍓 Competition: count the chins wins, whoever is the closest wins all of them ☝🏼 HILARIOUS PEOPLE THINK THIS ISN’T A JOKE!

THE STRUGGLE YOU DON’T SEE ON INSTAGTAM… the 15 minute try-to-squeeze-into-the-jeans dance before the photo 👖 Every girl will agree it’s a fight you will never loose, no matter how much sweat, sounds of ripping & loss of blood flow… we will NOT let them win! 💃🏼 Let’s see more of the right photo take over our Instagram feed please! Who’s with me?! These @freddyukireland jeans are pretty magic though, definitely live up to their hype & my tall girls… THEY COVER THE ANKLES! What a dream hey! 💭
High waisted 👙: Gives the illusion of a smaller waist ✔️ Increases body confidence ✔️ Good for those ‚bloated’ days ✔️ Low waisted 👙: Reveals the ‚life handles’ ✔️ Nowhere to hide ✔️ For those days you feel like a superwoman ✔️ I only ever used to wear high waisted bikinis, I felt so self conscious in anything low waisted… But now I wear both depending on how I feel (maybe not a rolled down high waisted like the right photo as it squeezes everything up!) Find styles that suit YOU & your body, the first step to body confidence on holiday is feeling comfortable in your bikini. So as I’ve said before, try on loads & loads of different styles in your living room, dance around in them & see which one you feel most like Wonder Woman in because you DESERVE to feel amazing 💃🏼 Post udostępniony przez C H E S S I E K I N G (@chessiekingg)
Put your hand up if your thighs touch when you sit down 🙋🏼 Keep your hand up if you’ve ever looked at those goddesses on Instagram & wondered why theirs don’t 🙋🏼🙋🏼 No matter how much ‚body confidence’ I share with you on here, I still really struggle with my legs when I’m sat down. When I’m in a bikini or shorts I look down & I immediately want to cover them up. They spread out like marshmallows & not even tasty-I-want-to-eat-you marshmallows. BUT unlike a year ago, I now snap out of it & remind myself what my legs do for me. They walk me everywhere, they make me jump AND they carry my torso my arms, my head & all 6 foot of me errryday. So next time you look down at your legs & they’re touching, getting cosy with each other & making friends… just have a little think what they do for you & send a little bitta love down there. There’s so much more to life! 💛 The blue pool, blue skies & tanned toned legs holiday photos are what you think people want to see but actually, I would much rather show you rainy season grey skies & how my thighs reaaaally look when I’m horizontal 👙 I think the derogatory names out there for ‚bigger legs’ like Thunder Thighs, Tree Trunks are a big reason for the leg hate. So… to all ma girls who have ever felt too conscious to wear short shorts, lets hold hands & scream from the roof tops ALLLL HAIL THICK THIGHS THAT TOUCH, modern day society will NOT tell us what size they ‚should’ be 💃🏼
Smooth skin, peachy booty, small waist, thin thighs… you can have it all in just 30 seconds of editing 💁🏼♀️ It’s scary how easily & quickly you can change your body on some of these apps. @lydiaxcollins & I had a play round to see how ‘modern day perfect’ we could make me look but still making it look ‘real’. Instagram can be so encouraging & inspiring but it’s also a ‘perfection’ trap 95% of the time & it can be so unhealthy & it still effects me. I want you to be able relate to me & look at my body & know it’s achievable. I want you to see me & know I look exactly the same in real life as I do on here. Yes people work extremely hard for their bodies & some people do look like the right but the rest of us gals should not have to feel like sh🍌t if we don’t 💃🏼 Sending allllll my love to anyone that’s compared themselves to another human today or wished they looked like that person on Instagram. You’re beautiful, in your own unique way ❤️🧡💛 Post udostępniony przez C H E S S I E K I N G (@chessiekingg)
