Blogger's side-by-side photos show how high-waist pants can change your body
These side-by-side photos will make you think.
Australian fitness blogger Beck Jackson shared an Instagram post showing the difference between high-waisted and low-waisted leggings.
There has been a huge reaction to her post too with over 8,000 likes when it was originally shared and her message has really resonated with her followers.
Sharing the side-by-side snaps, the 23-year-old points out that wearing clothes you feel comfortable in make you feel so much better.
Beck says that she prefers high-waisted pants and finds them more flattering but of course, someone else would say that low-rise versions are better.
"Why don't you have a muffin top?" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This question always makes me laugh because honestly, most people have a muffin top to some degree ??♀️ I just don't wear anything low rise that hugs that part of my waist. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Low rise jeans or tights are SO uncomfortable to me, they show your butt crack and dig into your waistline making you look like you're carrying more fat than you actually are. If you'll notice, pretty much everything I wear is high waisted, or at least semi high waisted - tights, jeans, skirts, EVERYTHING! If it’s not high waisted I’m not buying it ??♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I have some friends who only wear low rise clothes and you know what? They look bloody fantastic! It all comes down to wearing clothes that make you feel comfortable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Muffin tops, love handles, cellulite, armpit fat are all a natural part of life, it doesn’t mean you're unhealthy or unattractive or anything less than any girl (or boy) who doesn't have those things - it’s just the way your body carries your fat and skin because everyone carries fat and muscle differently, you could be the exact same height and weight as someone else and your body will look TOTALLY different! That’s why it’s so so stupid to compare your body to someone else’s body ✌? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #RealPost #MuffinTop
Another brilliant point made by the popular Instagrammer is that everyone carries fat and muscle differently and so clothes look different on everyone.
So, so TRUE.
