She's shattering all those modeling stereotypes one Instagram photo at a time! Whether Iskra Lawrence uploads a photo of herself eating snacks in the kitchen (in her underwear) or shares tips on how to make your body look skinnier on Instagram, fans of the Aerie Real model are obsessed with the way she addresses body positivity.
"EXPOSING all the model poses on the gram in this week's self-care Sunday video," the 27-year-old wrote on Instagram. On her YouTube channel, Iskra revealed tons of tricks that models use to look thinner than they really are in photos.
"I wanted to get super real and show you how drastically and instantly people can change how they look simply by posing," the beauty said. "Let alone good lighting, high quality cameras, and Photoshop! I've talked about this a lot in the past but in this video I show you 7 ways in which posing can dramatically change how we look."
The curvy bombshell continued, "I'm super excited to share this with you. I myself still pose and there's nothing wrong with moving your body in ways you feel most comfortable or confident but let's be honest and show the actual process."
In the video, Iskra details how to create the illusion of a thigh gap — "All I'm going to do is tilt my pelvis back and you can see straight away, it's only a small gap, but I have a gap" — making arms look smaller and fitter — "If you take a photo to the side and your arm is against your body like that, it's going to look double the size than if you move it back like that" — and eradicating the appearance of a double chin — "All I have to do is put my tongue to the top of my mouth and immediately, my double chin is slightly less."
She added, "I've been modelling 14 years so I learnt some stuff I want to share with you all [sic]. Because life's not perfect, social media lives aren't perfect and neither are us or our bodies. And that's exactly how it's meant to be! Because we are all imperfectly perfect and 100% unique."
It's hardly the first time the lingerie enthusiast has shared a picture of her abs (or her "rolls," depending on the photo). And though she's mentioned that models use specific maneuvers in the past, this time around, she's shedding light on what goes on behind the scenes in the industry and sharing firsthand the poses that can deceive.
“Your fat rolls are beautiful,” the 26-year-old has written. "And the reason we have been led to believe they aren't is because we don't see them in the media unless someone's being shamed for weight gain or ridiculed for their body. This is NOT the truth and not OK."
