This girl put a photo of herself side-by-side on Instagram, revealing just how deceiving booty pics can be

We’ve all been sitting on the couch, getting accidentally sucked down the Instagram rabbit hole of self-pity, when we stumble across numerous pictures of the “perfect booty” or the “perfect body”.

What we’re probably not too aware of is the fact that a lot of these pics simply aren’t what they seem.

Beauty blogger Sara Puhto decided to blow the case wide open with a telling “booty” pic.

The Finnish Youtuber put together two pics of herself side by side, demonstrating on Instagram that it’s pretty easy to make your body and booty look more… “enhanced” than they actually are.

She explains in the caption…

“I thought I'd show my booty from its normal straight leg standing position vs a posed booty pop position.

“Cause [sic] in a world where the Kardashian's bootys[sic] are so glorified, we need to remember that the photos we see of them and others aren't always reality.”

 

The concept of unrealistic body image has been somewhat enhanced by social media, but has also come under some intense scrutiny - that’s why Puhto has stepped in to remind us how misleading the quest for the perfect body is.

Her take away message?

“You can achieve anything with the right amount of determination, patience and effort! 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.”
