Dit Nederlandse Instagram-model laat de waarheid zien achter ‘perfecte’ bikinifoto’s

Wat we op het internet en social media zien is natuurlijk niet per se een reflectie van de waarheid. Je laat jezelf bij voorkeur alleen op je allermooist zien online; iets dat logisch is, maar waarmee je ook jezelf enigszins voor de gek houdt.

De Nederlands-Turkse Instagrammer Imre Çeçen besloot om te laten zien wat je houding doet met zogenaamde perfecte bikinifoto’s. Imre laat overigens wel vaker foto’s zien over de manipulatie van foto’s op Instagram, waar bijna iedereen zich schuldig aan maakt. Manipulatie gaat immers verder dan het daadwerkelijk gebruiken van programma’s als Photoshop.

Aan haar 267.000 volgers laat ze zien wat alleen al je houding kan doen met je benen op bikinifoto’s: “This is the most NORMAL thing ever yet us girls seem to be so self conscious about it,” vertelt ze. “Hello! Your legs are being pushed against a surface, they are supposed to expand! This doesn’t mean you’re fat.”

‼️DIFFERENT KIND OF "KEEP IT REAL"‼️ I know some people are all done with the "keep it real" pictures so I thought I'd try a new one😅 I find this one kinda hilarious🙈chilling by the pool instagram vs real life👙 . Anyone familiar with the concept of having all "normal" legs when you're standing but as soon as you sit down they transform into huge piles of meat?🍖😂 Why is it that those 2 sticks we use to walk expand to the size of Texas whenever they touch a chair?😅 . This is the most NORMAL thing ever yet us girls seem to be so self conscious about it😔 Hello! Your legs are being pushed against a surface, they are supposed to expand! This doesn't mean you're fat🙅🏻 Even muscle will just look like a huge shapeless pile of meat when there's no flexing involved🍖 If you don't want your legs to expand maybe invest in stone legs!⛰⛏ I'd choose marble ones💁🏻😂 . We've just lost touch with reality because on the internet all we see are those freaking hot dog legs🌭 I am guilty of posting those too! Yet even I wondered on my last vacay why my legs were so "big" when I sat down. 😅 . Thought I'd take a good comparison pic and I'm pretty sure I've got a hernia now😅 Creating that thighgap & skinny legs feel was real hard😵 I had to arch my back like crazy, hold my legs up (serious ab work was involved) and had to sit on the edge of the pool which caused me to almost fall. Both my camera & I would have drowned in the sadness of insta perfection (I would survive the water though, I can swim!🙆🏻) To people who do sit like this in real life; I admire your core strenght & willpower! . Yep, that's the truth behind poolside hotdog pics. Truth be told I'd much rather sit like that right pic whilst enjoying an actual hotdog🌭 What is your fave poolside snack? Kinda wanted to hold a piece of watermelon whilst taking this but it turns out that's only for advanced instagram posing😅 I couldn't hold myself up, flex them abs, hold a watermelon & take pics at the same time😂 Guess I better start practicing for my next vacay!💁🏻 . Ps. I don't think there's anything wrong with the way my legs look in the pic on the right. Just showing you the difference! 🌭 vs 🍖 = both yummy🙆🏻

Ze deelde een tijdje terug ook al een fotovergelijking waarbij ze haar lichaam bewust flink had bewerkt, iets dat ze zelf aangeeft niet te doen: “I don’t have a tiny waist and huge hips and it always made me feel kinda insecure. Lots of us feel the pressure to look like the people we see in magazines,” vertelt ze bij de foto hieronder.

🚫PHOTOSHOP🚫 Transforming your body using training & diet takes years yet some photo shop only takes seconds. We live in a world with beauty "standards". I don't have a tiny waist and huge hips and it always made me feel kinda insecure. Lots of us feel the pressure to look like the people we see in magazines. . And yes some of the pictures we see as "goals" were made with photoshop. But does that mean everything is photoshop? NO! I'm getting real tired of this hype to say that all that's different from our own body must be photoshop. Guess what? There are people with a body like this right picture. There are people with naturally huge butts & tiny waists. I'm just not one of them. Does not matter though cause I've still gotten tons of "photoshop" comments under certain pictures . . Scroll back on my account and you'll find pics of me showing how much lighting or posture can change your appearance. Lots of people found this difficult to believe so then it must be photoshopped🙄 Yes, there's a filter but the shape of my body has not been altered. Just because something seems unreal to you doesn't always mean it's fake . . What you say on the internet has an impact on others. Imagine a girl with a naturally tiny waist and huge butt always getting comments that she uses photoshop even though she doesn't. That must suck right? Imagine an insecure girl using photoshop to look "prettier". Commenting that she is "still ugly as fuck" might indeed make her stop using photoshop. She'll get plastic surgery now . . People will always be doing things we don't agree with or simply don't understand. But does that really affect your life? Let's try to be kind to eachother. Hate won't make this world a better place 🙅🏻 . I know you probably thought that this post would be a rant on how there are "idiots" using photoshop but it isn't. Guess what? In real life you will also come across people who seem "perfect". And fuck, that's not photoshop. Work on your selfconfidence and know that you are gorgeous too! Someone elses beauty is not the absence of your own. As long as you are happy being you it shouldn't really matter what others are doing! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!❤

🤰🏻👀 By now you've probably seen one of these kinda pics before but I was so amazed myself that I just had to share. Look at the difference between me coming straight out of bed and me in the evening🌝✨ . . We all know there are only 2 reasonable explanations. 1. My stomach is kinda bloated due to all the food it had to digest during the day🍝 2. I got abducted & impregnated by aliens👽 Although I'd love to see what my half alien baby would look like lets talk about option nr 1 aka bloating🤰🏻 . Although most of us instagirls seem to have a flat tummy 24/7 we really don't. Most pictures on the internet are posed and show sucked in and flexed bellies😶 Great and all but it can give you a disformed idea of reality. Cause yes, I also get affected by what I see on the internet. I have stood in front of my mirror many times wondering why I looked like I was carrying triplets whilst all other fitgirls seemed to have a flat tummy all the freaking time🤷🏻‍♀️🤔 . . We like to show our "best" sides online and that's also okay!💕 However from time to time we might need a reminder that no one walks around looking "perfect" every single second of the day. It's normal for your tummy to expand a bit during the day. I mean hello, where did you think the food you eat goes?!😅 . . Be happy that your body digests all that food cause if it didn't you wouldn't be living that much longer😵 Angrily staring at your bloated belly isn't gonna make it go away. Might even make it worse.. stress isn't good for your tummy at all🙈 . . Appreciate that your body is constantly working to keep you alive!🤗 Damn your body sounds like a good friend, right? So treat it like one! Start loving your body! Your body is not your enemy but your ally!🤝 Work with it and not against it. If you love your body no one can take that away and you'll be stronger than ever! LOVE YOURSELF!❤❤ . Ps. In case it turns out I'm actually carrying an alien baby I'll keep you up to date! What shall I name him/her?!👶🏻😂 #somanythingstotakecareof #willmybabyevermeetherdad? #gonnabeasinglemum

Hooray, yet another 30 second transformation. We probably all know by now that even us instagrammers don't walk around posing all day😅 I mean seriously, who's got time for that? Also I'm pretty sure it would hurt as hell. But why did I call that left picture "bad" posture?✨ ✨ Posing means that you push your body out of its comfort zone. So not in its natural "shape". Yet in the left picture my body is also not in its "natural" shape. My shoulders are rounded so the upper part of my spine is curved. My hips are pushed forward which makes the lower part of my spine curve. Lots of us are walking around like this so guess it's nothing to worry about, right? . That's where we're wrong!! This posture is also called "slouching" and can cause serious health problems!! It can cause headaches, pulled muscles and back pains. That's why I called it "bad" posture. Now don't get freaked out cause this is not a death sentence but it's certainly something to think about🤔 . Lots of things can be done to change your posture. Start practicing to stand up straight and check your posture. Training can also help. Strengthen your core and make sure you stretch enough. Tight muscles can really change your posture and not in a good way. ✨ ✨ So should you now continue life looking like that right picture? Wouldn't recommend that either🙅🏻 Sure posing is fun for a picture but it's also not a healthy posture. In real life you should be looking somewhere in between these two pics. ✨ ✨ I know that working on your posture doesn't really sound like fun or maybe it just sounds like bullshit to you😳 But guess what; good posture makes you look so much better! Stand proud and tall, open your chest and you'll suddenly look so confident! ✨ ✨ Slouching is often done cause the closed posture makes us feel like we can "hide" from the rest of the world. Guess what? I can still see you! So instead of slouching, start standing straight up. Walk through the door like; hello, HERE I AM! Be proud!! You deserve to be seen!!❤❤ tag someone who needs to know about the importance of posture!!👯 ✨ Do you ever think about your posture? Or do you work on it? Let me know😘

Imre is natuurlijk een hartstikke knappe dame met een (may we say so?) jaloersmakend lichaam. Daarom is het ergens extra goed om te zien dat werkelijk iedereen er anders uit ziet na een hele dag eten, bewegen en relaxen.

Dat Imre ervoor kiest om haar lichaam bij voorkeur van de mooiere kant te laten zien, blijft logisch, maar ze wil hiermee wel duidelijk maken dat je met de juiste houding mogelijk nog meer kunt bereiken dan met nabewerking, en dat is zeker een goede zaak.

Anyone who knows why this pose a exist? It has been around since I was like 10 years old. Casually leaning against a wall with one leg up, anyone who does this in real life? I surely don't😅 I'd rather sit on the ground or walk around looking for food🙆🏻 🍕 . Your foot will keep slipping off the wall, there's no good place to keep your hands and the biggest struggle; what to do with your head? Do you rest it against the wall risking everyone gets a good look up in your nostrils?👃🏼 . Why is it that people actually use this pose? Maybe I'm just a weirdo but I felt so uncomfortable. Like is my foot gonna slip causing me to fall? How's my nose looking & wtf, where's that hand going?!😏😅 Oh and why does it look like I've got to pee?😭 . Thankfully I didn't have to do it all by myself. Got my lovely cactus friend by my side to make thing even more awkward🙆🏻🌵Whilst trying to take pictures my foot actually slipped and I almost fell into that freaking cactus😂 Pretty that if I'd actually fallen it would have made a great pic or video💁🏻 . Anyway, the end result is pretty okay and having risked falling into a cactus I obviously had to post the pic💁🏻😂What did you guys do today? 💕 . I've been feeling like a dying cow🐄 I went from being allowed to walk only 5 minutes a day by my doctor to walking around with my siblings for almost 3 hours yesterday. Turns out that's not a great idea😅Started feeling really sick yesterday afternoon and I still am. I needed that afternoon nap even more than my baby brother did😂 Guess I gotta build things up more slowly🙈

Ehhhhm…. hello to all 200K people following me🙋🏻🎉 This feels so unreal! How did we make it to 200 THOUSAND people?? I'm saying "we" cause I always feel like we're in this together👯 💕 . What many of you may not know is that last year I got really sick and in December mum was even at the point of getting me hospitalized🏥 Not that much later I got diagnosed with a chronic illness called fibromyalgia. I was so sick that for months I couldn't leave my house or do anything at all. That's when I decided to put all energy left in me into this, into instagram. Even though I was in a bad situation myself I hoped that somehow I could still have a positive impact on others💕 . There were days that all I could do was choose a picture from my endless collection, write a caption (or half a book😅) and post it. This was my only way to still connect with the world. In some way you could say that it saved me too, it gave me a reason to get out of bed every single day. ✨ . I noticed more than ever that what you give is also what you get. More and more people joined this little group and I got so much love back!❤ Slowly my health is improving and I'm hoping that soon I'll have enough energy again to work out all the plans that I've got for you! Be ready cause I'm gonna be annoying you even more on the internet😂💁🏻 . To those who've been following me for quite a while; thank you for sticking with me! To those who just joined the squad; thank you for somehow finding me interesting enough to hit that follow button🙈 It's not me who makes this account so amazing🙅🏻 It's ALL OF US TOGETHER!! ❤❤ . Thank you for your love and positivity! Thank you for being you! Just so you know; you are beautiful exactly the way you are!! GO MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE YOU BEAUTY!!👊🏼💕 . Ps. Nope I didn't buy any 200K balloons🎈 Your sweet comments are my trophy!🏆 So please blow them up as big as possible😅🙆🏻 #nopressure #maybesomepressure 😂

Can we all take a moment to appreciate these freaking awesome Puma tights😍 Lols this is not sponsored or anything 👑 Once upon a time I was scrolling through instagram, saw these and it was love at first sight👀 I knew I had to do everything in my power to make sure these tights would one day belong to me💁🏻 *insert Disney like singing & dancing* 🌝 ✨ I then convinced my mum to go shopping and we "coincidentally" walked by the Puma store🤷🏻‍♀️#notreallyacoincidence Since I already have waaaay to much sportswear I told mum I'd just take a quick look and wouldn't buy anything😏#iwaslying Then the hunt to finding these babies in the store began🔍😂 they turned out to be priced super fairly so I bought them (even with mums consent!) 🤗 ✨ I've never worn them to the gym though and let's be honest; those cut out parts are amazing but also kinda dangerous😶 It's like a window creepy guys can stare at waiting for your underwear to show up😅 They don't even have to lay & wait in the bushes with binoculars anymore to see your panties😂😭 🔭 I'm about 99% sure this was designed by a very clever man who might even have a calculation on how long it takes your underwear to move up to that peekaboo hight👀 Gotta be honest though: smart move dude😉 Also just realised that this caption went from Disney story to creepy pervert story real quick😂
