Body Positivity – What we can learn from bloggers


In the last year, more realistic and natural photos have been posted on Instagram. Young women, in particular, show themselves as they are, without filters and Photoshop. Body positivity – it seems this is what we can learn from bloggers: To accept yourself and show how you really are. Is that really possible?

Fact is that the "body positivity movement" is becoming more and more popular on Instagram. As a result, bloggers from diverse backgrounds are showing off their flaws. Whether with cellulite, excess skin or stretch marks.

But how did this movement come about?

Instagram is a photo-sharing platform on which celebrities and lifestyle bloggers share most content. On average, 80 million photos are uploaded to Instagram daily. Instagram is focused on photo and video content. Staged photos of models or lifestyle bloggers use to get a lot of attention.

Many users resort to Photoshop. They present themselves only styled at their best. Some even cheat with practiced poses to appear a few kilos lighter.

In response, the "body positivity" trend is becoming more and more popular.

This movement is all about one thing: "It's ok if you're not perfect!"

You should be confident in yourself and show yourself as you are. No matter what dress size you wear. Because everybody is beautiful and unique!

Somebody who has absolutely perfected this "body positivity" trend is Celeste Barber. As a comedian, she tries to imitate staged photos of stars on her Instagram account.

With her funny picture comments, her photos are the absolute highlight in the staged world of the photo sharing platform.

We are very sorry!
