Blogger?€?s Empowering Side-by-Side Photos Show Instagram vs. Reality

First, blogger Sara Puhto took to Instagram to share a photo of her unshaved armpit hair in a bid to highlight the unrealistic beauty standards that women face every day. Now the body-positive advocate is trying to show the world that you shouldn?€?t believe everything you see on social media.

Taking to Instagram once again, the 20-year-old from Finland has been busy sharing side-by-side images to prove how much of a difference angles and posture can make in photos??put on social media.

Whether it is sucking in your tummy or being pictured from a certain angle, Sara wants to show that ?€?perfect?€? images shared online aren?€?t always what they seem.


In one post, Sara wore the same bikini in two side-by-side images. In the picture on the left, she stood in a natural stance that she deemed ?€?Reality.?€? On the right, she??stood tall with her back arched and her arms raised in a pose she called???€?Instagram.?€?

?€?I was scrolling through my old photos and came across these photos where I was trying to take one of those sandy bum pics. I posted the right one back in January, but the left is the reality behind that photo,?€? she wrote in the accompanying caption.

?€?I still sometimes get a slight pang of sadness and jealousy when I see all the big beautiful bums on Instagram and wish I could magically have what they have,?€? she continued. ?€?Because sometimes I feel like all my booty gains are gone when I take photos where it looks smaller, but then I remember that I shouldn?€?t compare my body to theirs. I have a great booty and so do they! It?€?s all about posing/angles and nobody looks like that all the time.?€?

Sara went on to say that although there?€?s nothing wrong with posting a photo of yourself that?€?s taken from a great angle or is deceptive, you should keep in mind that other people are doing the same.

?€?Just remember that when you?€?re scrolling through social media and see all the posed bums that you too have a great bum and that nobody looks like that 24/7,?€? she wrote.


She finished her post by encouraging her 143,000 followers to remember that all bodies are different and that you don?€?t need a specific body type to fit into what society defines as beautiful.

?€?Be comfortable in your own skin no matter what angle, posed or unposed, and you?€?ll radiate beauty!?€?


Since she posted the empowering message, it??has received more than 9,600??likes and hundreds of comments from fans praising the blogger for her refreshing body-positive stance.

?€?Haha, for real, it?€?s way too stressful tryin?€? to remake or BE like ?€?those?€? girls?€‘°bc even THOSE girls have imperfections. Be like you, have a body like YOURS only,?€? one fan wrote.

?€?This post literally just changed my life in a serious and legitimate manner,?€? another wrote. ?€?I hated myself for not looking like the picture on the right all the time and only now ?€‘± through this ?€‘± I am realizing how not everyone looks perfect all the time. Thank you so much for this.?€?

We can?€?t wait for Sara?€?s next sprinkling of body positivity. Go girl!
