Two plus-size models share photos proving how much Photoshop really changes your body

Two plus-size models have doctored a picture of themselves to show how misleading Photoshop can be. Diana Sirokai and Callie Thorpe shared two Instagram images, one which shows the pair having been heavily airbrushed by a professional photographer, and the other which shows the models in reality. Scroll on the post above to see both.


The pictures highlight the deceiving nature of Photoshop and reassure women that all is not as it seems when it comes to advertising and, increasingly, Instagram.

“I have to say we look amazing both ways,” said Sirokai. “The purpose of this was to show you all how magazines and the media takes editing to a different level. Models and celebrities do not even look like themselves. We live in such a fake world its time to bring real back. Own who you are and slay!”

The models asked Karina Poltavtceva to shoot the pictures and they go a long way in illustrating the extent of which airbrushing can change a woman’s body.

“It’s no wonder women are laden with insecurities,” said Thorpe. “For years, we have been subjected to perfect airbrushed and often altered images across the media. While Photoshop has its place and need in some parts of industries this is the extreme when it comes to editing, it just goes to show how much we can really alter ourselves.”
