American plus-size model, Simone Mariposa, shares an unedited photo of herself
Amercican model, Simone Mariposa, whose photos have often been edited to look ‘presentable’, took to her instagram to show the world what she really looks like. She posted the above photo and wrote:
“I’ve had this picture saved in my drafts for a while, and I was scared to post it.
I have a tough relationship with the rolls on my stomach, and anytime they show in pictures, I always delete them.
But I took a second to think about it, today.
This is me, the body that I have worked so hard to love and accept.
There’s no hiding it, and I shouldn’t have to.
I’d be doing a disservice to myself and the women who look at me and my body for inspiration to present a constantly edited depiction of myself.
So here I am. Rolls and all.
