But what you probably aren’t across is body-positive vlogger Carmen Rene (aka, @eatthecaketoo’s) take on the matter. She recently took to Instagram to recreate the nude photoshoot and share a very important message that all bodies are worthy of being celebrated.
“One of these bodies, a large part of our society will deem as ‘perfect,’ she captioned the post. “My body is empowered by the opportunity to share a different reality. PERFECT: ‘having all the required or desirable elements, qualities, or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be.’ Stop striving to be perfect because guess what, you are there!”
Carmen’s post is divided into four quadrants, showing the original polished image of Kim alongside three shots of herself in the same pose. The difference? She hasn’t made any attempt to disguise her cellulite, rolls and stretch marks.
“Today at this very moment my body is as good as it possibly can be,” she continued. “I can’t change it today, and tomorrow it may be different, it will still be perfect.”
“There is no body better than the next. There is no one body that is ‘perfect.’ There is your body, unique, worthy, desirable and perfect. All bodies are good bodies.”
The post was first shared a week ago, but already it is garnering serious attention from fans praising Carmen for her sentiment.
“Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and so does perfection,” one user commented. “Just keep doing what you’re doing.”
“We just can’t get caught up thinking there is only one type that is acceptable. I’m so happy to hear you are loving your body! Embrace the curves,” added another.
We couldn’t agree more.
