Real Life vs. Instagram Body-Positivity Photos

This Looks Like a Before-and-After Bum Transformation, but It's Not

These photos weren't taken years, or months, or even days apart. With just a few seconds between clicks and a shift of the camera perspective, these pictures could totally pass as before and afters, but they're not. Sara Puhto posted these side-by-side pics as a reminder that "Nobody's booty looks round and peachy from all angles."

Sara said, "there will always be angles that are 'unflattering' that might make you feel bad when you see them," but don't punish yourself by undereating, overexercising, or missing out on your favourite things for the sole purpose of looking good in bikini photos. You'll feel so much happier embracing your body "with all your 'flaws,'" instead of constantly chasing that ideal of what society deems as beautiful. "Life isn't meant to be a competition on who can look the best and we should normalise not having to 'look perfect' all the time because it's a ridiculous concept. You are perfect the way you are πŸŒ΄β˜€οΈ."
