Can you spot the difference in these bootylicious bikini pics?

 

We can guarantee that at one point or another you’ve scrolled through your Instagram feed seeing all these “Insta-models” looking flawless in their bikinis and living their best beach lives.

Now one bikini designer is trying to take a stand against “unrealistic” standards of the majority of the pictures posted by all the Insta-models.


New South Wales native Karina Irby posted a side-by-side comparison of a bootylicious photo she had taken of herself.

In one photo she is embracing her natural body (you go girl!) and the other she edited the s**t out of.

“Let’s play a game. It’s called reality vs. Instagram. Every morning I wake up and scroll through my personal Instagram feed and spy “Insta Girls” posting unrealistic images of themselves,” the bikini business owner wrote.

The 27-year-old went on to say how so much of her Instagram feed is clogged up with girls who “portray” these unrealistic images with “hundreds of thousands of young girls looking up to them as role models.”

She spoke of the comments she sees of these young girls writing “OMG WHY DON’T I LOOK LIKE THIS” and said that the truth was none of these “Insta Girls” look like this either.

“They look like you, like everyone,” Karina wrote.

The designer then explained that she had drastically altered a photo of herself to portray the “Insta Girl Edit” and went into detail of what she changed about her body.

She has smoothed all the skin on her body, thinned her arms, quads and neck, smoothed out her scars and cellulite, enlarged and lifted her bum and made her breasts look rounder.

Wow. That’s a lot of effort for all these “Insta Girls” to go through on the daily just for a photo edit.

“After all these little tweaks, can you notice how my horizon is warped?” she pointed out to her followers.

She finished her caption writing: “Ladies, I’m not here to play mean girl towards others. I simply want to inspire you to love yourself and stop comparing yourselves to unrealistic images online. Look out for the sings of the “Insta Girl Edit” and don’t take social media too seriously. Let’s get real.”

Well said, Karina. A very inspiring message!
