The body positivity movement has come on leaps and bounds over the past few years.

In an effort to shut down unrealistic beauty expectations, more and more bloggers are ditching the filters and face-tuning apps and are instead choosing to embrace their true selves, flaws and all.

Ariella Nyssa, a body positive influencer, has always been vocal about her journey to self acceptance, and a recent post about embracing her cellulite was both relatable and powerful.

'Cellulite, fat, uneven skin. This is me,' she wrote. 

'There was a time in my life where I HATED these things. I wanted to cut them off my body, I wanted to be someone else.'

'It’s only this last year that I have realised the beauty in each and every one of these things. My cellulite is BEAUTIFUL. My fat and rolls, still BEAUTIFUL. And my uneven tan, STILL BEAUTIFUL.'

'It’s about time we all learnt to love ourselves at every stage of our lives. Don’t let the number on the scales define you.'

'Observe and identify the beautiful qualities you possess and praise them! Love them! Embrace them! For they are they make you YOU!'

Ariella has also discussed the impact and comparisons that come with having an online presence. 

'I’ve seen so many of my beautiful friends leaving social media because they aren’t happy. I can completely see why that is! I have down days about instagram all the time. It’s extremely hard not to compare yourself to every other influencer there is,' she said. 

It's about time influencers were giving us some realness. 


Instagram is flooded with images of airbrushed perfection, and while society is certainly waking up to the fact that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, there is still along way to go when it comes to celebrating beauty diversity. 

One Insta influencer who is helping the movement along is Ariella Nyssa, an Aussie-based beach babe whose feed is absolutely stunning.

Ariella recently uploaded an Instagram picture highlighting the differences between what we see as we scroll through our feed, and what's actually a reality.

'When I first saw the photo on the right I had negative thoughts almost straight away. “I’m not putting that photo up”' she wrote. 

'But when I compared these two pictures I realised just how important it is to post it. What you guys don’t see behind Instagram photos is the 300 other images that didn’t ‘make the cut’.'

'The in between shots where you test out different poses, angles and wait for the perfect lighting.'

'The photo on the left I posed my body to an accurate degree to emphasise my body shape, the sun was out from a cloud and my body looks smoother.'

'The photo on the right is a natural stance, my posture is shocking and all of my lumps and bumps are out on display.'

'This is reality and I think it is so important to love these photos and love my body in ANY form, ANY lighting and ANY pose. So no I’m not going to delete this photo, im going to show off the things that make my body mine!'
