instagrambeauty and fitness

If you scroll through your Instagram feed, you probably see a ton of polished, perfect looking photos of your friends and family showing off their best selves. After all, why wouldn’t people want others to see them in a positive light? Most of us don’t want to put up a picture of ourselves after we just wake up or while we’re eating out at a buffet.

The online world can be pretty cruel, and whether we admit it or not, many of us care what others think. Otherwise, why would we put filters on our photos or read through all the comments people leave us? So, we want to put our best selves forward, which might mean posing in ways that flatter our bodies or using Photoshop to enhance certain features.

If you find yourself feeling jealous or inferior after looking at Instagram photos, try to remember that Instagram and reality are two very different things.

Here are 15 photos that show why you shouldn’t envy perfect Instagram bodies:

1. A pose can make all the difference.
