Anna Victoria on Her 'Instagram Booty' Vs. Her 'Real Life Booty': I Was 'Insecure' About It Growing Up
Fitness influencer Anna Victoria explains how the right angle can impact an Instagram photo
She recently posted side-by-side photos of herself on Instagram, which are nearly identical with one exception. Her butt is rounder in one photo (which she dubs the “Instagram booty”) and much less so in the other.
“A lot of the booty pics you see on Instagram are flexed, pushed out, back arched so much it actually hurts,” she wrote. “Plus high waisted pants that accentuate a small waist and lift the booty too…there are so many ways to make it look 10x bigger on insta than in real life, and I do it too!! I love posing and admiring the ‘Instagram booty’ but that’s not my real booty. And I’m okay with that.”
She added: “The one thing I was most insecure about growing up was my booty. I’ve always been smaller on bottom and I would try to wear long shirts to cover it. One thing I’ve loved about fitness is the ability to sculpt your body in various ways but there’s only so much muscle you can build on your butt and you need to flex it to really show it off.”
Despite getting “several comments” about her “lack of a butt,” Victoria said she is proud of her body just the way it is.
“It may not look like what someone else would consider an ideal booty, but it’s mine!! Not theirs,” she said. “And I’ve had to work hard to love it and to shape it and to love it no matter the shape or size. People are always going to have opinions on your body. Do they hurt sometimes? Yes. But a wise woman once said, “You could be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world and there will still be someone who hates peaches”. And in this case, I literally mean peaches.🍑🍑😂😂”
