More and more these days we see magazines, newspapers and even the internet splattered with images of celebrities looking beautiful in gorgeous bikinis or perfect dresses; but has this constant exposure to other’s ‘perfect’ bodies’, warped our views of what our own figures should look like?
The whole topic of body image is something that evokes different opinions or reactions from many people, and I don’t think it even to be possible for someone to make a claim as to what the ‘perfect’ body should look like.
Take well known celebrity Kim Kardashian for example.
We see photographs of her everywhere, and constantly hear discussions about her figure… and in particular, her bum! There’s no denying that many girls would love to have a small waist and round bum like Kim’s, but is it now promoting us to have unrealistic ideas as to how we can achieve these results for ourselves?
The gym surely seems like the most practical option; but now, more and more products are appearing on the market which claim to give us a bigger bum, and I’m sure it won’t be long before we can get the body we want without even having to lift a finger.
For example, you can now buy bum pads which are inserted inside your underwear to give you a larger and rounder behind; and there are also companies such as Glute Boost, who sells pills and creams that claim to help you ‘get a bigger butt’. I may be cynical, but the idea of a tablet that can gives you a bigger bum seems slightly bizarre to me; squats do wondrous things, and are an activity you can do just about anywhere!
It’s great for people to look at others and be inspired to achieve a similar figure for themselves, but sometimes, these results aren’t what we think they will be when starting out, and no one should ever be disheartened because their body isn’t like that person in the magazine… work hard, and embrace your own!
Thanks for reading.
