Never believe what you see online.

Especially on Instagram and other outlets that are designed to show you the best part of someone. The filters, the editing, the posing, the models. That’s nothing like what real life is, and it’s certainly not what you should take to heart.

Diana Sirokai and Callie Thorpe, two plus-sized models, got together with photographer Karizza to show everyone a brutally honest depiction of what it’s like. They asked to be edited and photoshopped to be skinnier, slimmer, without any cellulite or any fat rolls and uploaded this image right next to their unedited, untouched one.

They had a few choice words for those listening.

Diana captioned her Instagram:

“I have to say we look Amazing both ways. The purpose of this was to show you all how magazines and the media take editing to a different level. Models and celebrities do not even look like themselves. We live in such a fake world its time to bring real back. Own who you are and slay!”

The difference is eyeopening.

This isn’t the first time they’ve done something body positive either.

These two ladies are popular on their social media for showing and exhibiting self-love and self-acceptance regardless of appearance. Whether you’re a size one, or a size twenty, you deserve to be loved and appreciated.

A month before these images surfaced, Diana posted the following.

She compared herself to the infamous Kim Kardashian, with an empowering comment: “We are both women with different bodies.”

The message these women are trying to send is the message of love and acceptance.

Countless women all across the country are pressured into being a particular shape or a particular size. Such ideas like these which counter the narrative are greatly appreciated by those most affected. What about you? Were you affected?
