Models Reveal Their “Body Flaws”, and Their Words Can Make You Love Yourself

The idea of the perfect female body image influences us so much that even girls at 9 years old fall for it! But fortunately, there are models ready to destroy it and show their true beauty. After all, we all have wrinkles, stretch marks, and scars. And how wonderful it is not to be ashamed of them!

We at Bright Side admire the models who choose to uncover the truth about their bodies without trying to retouch them. And we believe that this step can help change the perception of female appearance.

1. “Truth: I’ve had cellulite since I was 11 years old.”

2. “I can prove that ‘flawless skin’ is not needed to be successful.”

3. “Believe me, comparing yourself to others won’t make you happy.”

4. “I would like everyone to understand that cellulite is a synonym for naturalness.”

5. “I like the pattern of my stretchies!”

6. “I’m okay with my rolls and creases.”

7. “I’m tired of dieting.”

8. “I love my body despite my stripes.”

9. “I wouldn’t feel ready for shoots at times, thinking that I could work out more.”

10. “I’m not ’brave’, it’s what I look like.”

11. “I’m unique with my ’flaws’.”

12. “I was taller than others and got lots of offensive nicknames.”

13. “I’ve struggled with acne since I was 15 years old.”

14. “At the age of 11 or 12, I noticed my stretch marks.”

15. “I have curves and I’m okay with it.”

16. “I was thin and tall and hated to look in the mirror.”

17. “They denied to shoot a cover with me and said I didn’t fit in the sample size.”

18. “People worked in gloves with me because of my psoriasis.”
