With 700 million active users, Instagram is an insanely popular social media site. It seems that everywhere you look on there, you’re faced with stunning, stick thin models with big bums and large chests. Now, we aren’t for one second slating anyone with that body type. However, some people push that this is their body shape dishonestly, using photo editing software paired with clever posing, angles and lighting.
We get it that everyone wants to feel their best, but the problem is other people are seeing these images and scrutinizing themselves because their own bodies do not match. There are so many societal pressures on how people should look these days. However, one wonderful person who is blowing the lid off on the reality behind Instagram pictures is Sara Phuto. Sara is a 20 year old body positive blogger who is trying to spread the message that you shouldn’t believe everything that you see on the internet. Take a look below to see what we mean!
