These days, you can’t go a day on Instagram without seeing a photo of someone’s perfectly rounded ass staring back at you.
Whether it’s your favourite blogger sporting a daring bikini or one of the Kardashian’s posting yet another ‘belfie’ (butt selfie), chances are, you’re going to see that super toned tush and feel a little bit down about your own bottom.
Thankfully, blogger Sara Puhto is deflating everything you think you know about those perfectly formed peaches by showing just how easy it is to fake a perfected ‘booty pic’.
“[Be]cause in a world where the Kardashian’s bootys are so glorified, we need to remember that the photos we see of them and others aren’t always reality,” she wrote on her Instagram page.
Puhto, 20, explained that by standing with one leg forward and a slightly arched back, you can make your bottom look completely different to the way it usually does.
She wrote: “I thought I’d show my booty from its normal straight leg standing position vs a posed booty pop position 😬.”
Puhto, who is from Finland, said that the Kardashian’s bottoms “can’t ALWAYS look that big from every angle”.
“Same goes with photos on Instagram, we see them as goals and think we’ll never be able to gain that much muscle or lose that much fat, but what you need to remember is that those photos you see are achievable, you can get to your goals, you can achieve anything with the right amount of determination, patience and effort,” she wrote.
“Don’t think you can’t because you’re comparing a posed photo of a body to your everyday body. Use them as motivation but don’t get too caught up on them. YOU are beautiful and can do anything you put your mind to.”
It’s not the first time Puhto has utilised her Instagram page to preach body positivity. She recently opened up about her love/hate relationship with stomach rolls.
She said: “I used to hate having fat rolls and always thought they’d go away completely if I exercised and got less fat on my tummy. But recently I’ve realised they’re not a thing that’s gonna go away, and I’m so fine with that!
“Yes I could eat healthy 24/7 and workout in a way that would get rid of it. But what’s the point? I love the way I eat and train now, so what’s the point of changing what makes me happy to get rid of some extra fat?”
She continued: “It’s just rolls of skin with fat and I NEED that little layer! It would be unrealistic if I had 0% body fat on my body! So I just wanted to share what my body looks like when I sit down to show that I also got these rolls, muffin top (whatever you wanna call it 😁) and I’m not afraid to hide them [sic].”
What a legend.
