¡Envidia ninguna! El truco de las fotos ‘perfectas’ en bikini que ves en Instagram

Dar una vuelta por Instagram en verano es sinónimo de ver innumerables imágenes de cuerpos perfectos disfrutando de sus vacaciones cerca de una importante masa de agua, ya sea esta salada o clorada. Posados en bañador junto al mar, tomando el sol en la piscina o simplemente delante del espejo inundan los perfiles de todos esos ‘instagramers’ de moda que parecen vivir por y para la llamada ‘operación bikini’.

De hecho, esa prenda de baño tiene incluso un día como homenaje: el 5 de julio se conmemora el Día del Bikini. No obstante, en muchas fotografías de Instagram luce un mejor aspecto con la ayuda de varios trucos. Una postura cuidada, un buen ángulo, filtros e incluso Photoshop son algunas de las fórmulas que utilizan para crear su imagen más perfecta.

De hecho, dos usuarias de la red social, la holandesa Imre Çeçen y la australiana Stacey Lee, han querido desvelar al mundo los principales secretos de estos cuerpos de anuncio. Para ello han utilizado varios montajes fotográficos con los que demuestran que detrás de cada instantánea perfecta hay mucho trabajo de producción y edición.

La pose idónea: erguida y con los músculos en tensión

Tanto Imre Çeçen como Stacey Lee cuentan con un cuerpo escultural. En sus perfiles se definen como blogueras de ‘fitness’ lo que significa que dedican sus redes sociales a mostrar su buen tono físico gracias a las dietas y los ejercicios. Sin embargo, más allá de sus siluetas perfectamente entrenadas, han querido mostrar que no todo lo que vemos en internet tiene porqué ser verdad.

Por ejemplo, Çeçen, con más de 300.000 seguidores en Instagram, ha hecho un montaje para demostrar que posar con el cuerpo rígido es fundamental para que no aparezca ninguno de esos michelines indeseados.

So I posted a pic of the difference between me standing and me sitting a while ago and I got some real badass comments? I got called "fat", "ugly" and was even told that "real" fitgirls don't look like this right pic when they sit down? ??‍♀️ ✨ First of all: being fit has very little to do with how you look. Having a low fatpercentage does not mean someone is fit or healthy?? It goes the other way around too. Not having a low fatpercentage does NOT mean you can't be fit. There is no standard for being fit. We can all be fit in our own way! Find a way of being fit that makes you happy!??‍♀️⛹?‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ ✨ Then for the people who said they do not have any kind of "rolls" when they sit: we all have a skin. Your skin is your biggest organ and keeps your other organs together whilst keeping bacteria etc out. Your skin is flexible so you can MOVE?? Being flexible also means that if you push it certain ways it rolls up a bit. Be thankful for those skinrolls! Without them you'd have to stay put in one place your entire life and probably die a lonely death. Cause no, your other inflexible friends can't move either? ? ✨ . When I sit up straight and flex I don't have any rolls. When I slouch, round my shouders and back I do have some tiny rolls. I'd rather call them skinfolds though. I'll be honest: I don't really have a huge pouch. For "normal" people standards I actually have little fat on my belly. Then again, for bodybuilding standards my fatpercentage is NOT that low at all??‍♀️ . ✨ There is no such thing as a perfect body. Your goals depend on what kinda people you surround yourself with and look up to? You might look at yourself and think you're "too fat" whereas someone else looks at you and wishes one day they will look like you. Learn to love yourself no matter what! You won't find happiness in having your goal body?? You have to find happiness within yourself!? ✨ There will always be people who won't like you. But guess what? There will also ALWAYS be people who LOVE you! Become your own biggest fan. See how amazing you are and suddenly you'll turn into "goals" yourself! I believe in you, now believe in yourself too!??❤❤

Además, la bloguera muestra diferentes poses que se pueden adoptar ante la cámara y que cambian totalmente la imagen. Como ella misma dice, el truco para la fotografía está en tensar los músculos y arquear el cuerpo lo máximo posible para que la figura se muestre mucho más estilizada. Esto llevará varias pruebas delante de un espejo como explica en la publicación.

?Spoiler alert? I did not pull down my shorts, they are at the same height in all these pictures!! Look at the distance between my shorts and bellybutton? IT'S ALL ABOUT POSTURE!! ✨ So how is this even possible? On the left picture I'm completely pushing my hips forwards and my back & shoulders are rounded. Due to this my boobs get pushed towards my belly button. Slouching is defenitely bad posture and can cause serious health issues! Honestly, I think this is how we all look coming out of the changing room when your mum forced you to try on something ridiculous? ✨ "Natural" posture me is just chilling? No weird pose, no overarching or slouching?? Just standing proud an standing tall! I mean, look at that happy face! Standing like this takes me little to no effort but does force my core to engage? ✨ Than we have posed me?? No time to smile cause damn this pose is hard work? Flexing my abs and arching that back so much we might as well turn it into a slide for them kids to play on? Because of the arched back my abs are more visible and the distance between my shorts & sportsbra looks bigger . ✨ Since I've posted something similar before I know people are gonna say; "even when posing I look like the pic on the left"? Let me tell you something THIS IS NOT ABOUT HAVING ABS OR A "THIGHGAP"?? EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU LOOKS BETTER WITH PROPER POSTURE!! You go get the best out of YOUR body by OWNING it! Be proud!! ? ✨ Look at left pic me? Honestly, I kinda look like a serial killer who just layed eyes upon its next victim. Why? The rounded back & neck make it almost impossible to look up. Instead of trying to hide behind "closed" body language try to stand proud and tall! You deserve to be seen! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!!❤❤ ✨ New blogpost about posture is up! Direct link to my fb is in my bio. You'll find the link there?You definitely don't want to miss this one. Ended it with my worst joke/pun ever?? #gettingworseeverysingleday #proudofitthough ?? Also yes, thank you for letting me know this "dumb ass bitch" made a spelling mistake? People who also have dyslexia will understand? #nevergetitright #evenwhenyoudoublecheck

También la bloguera Lee, con más de 25.000 fans, tiene su postura favorita para salir perfecta en las fotos. En este caso, se coloca de lado y con una pierna ligeramente elevada. Así consigue una figura mucho más estilizada que con una pose de frente. Pero, como ella misma dice, no le resultó tarea fácil. Para conseguir la imagen ideal, tuvo que hacer 78 tomas que acabo por descartar.

WORLDS APART Reality vs insta You see what I show you. You see what other people show you. What you see is a snapshot. A second. Out of many minutes and hours. You don't see the hard work, the sweat, the alarms for early workouts even when all I wanna do is stay in bed, the meal prep, the sacrifices necessary to stay in this shape. You don't see the outtakes. The deleted pictures. The 78 other photos that didn't 'make the cut', because I scrutinize them too much. You don't see the part where I stand in my backyard thinking 'it's freezing out here…and I have no clue how to stand right now…shit is my neighbor looking over the fence?' You don't see my D.I.Y tripod consisting of a stool, some lanterns, and my phone propped against them to get that perfect angle. Which falls multiple times. Instagram is merely the depiction of a glamorous lifestyle through very un-glamorous means. I love insta. It's an incredible tool that has connected me to so many incredible people. But it is not reality. It's what I choose to show. ? wearing @Lilybod leggings #keepingitreal #dedicated #lilybod #bodytransformation #transformationtuesday #strongnotskinny #bbg #bodygoals #fitness #inspo #kaylaitsines #progressnotperfection #muscle #training #girlswholift #motivation #traininsane #girlswholift

Con la vestimenta adecuada

Ahora bien, en estos casos, no solo la postura es clave para lucir el cuerpo perfecto. La ropa deportiva también es aliada de las ‘instagramers’. En este caso, lo demuestra Lee. En este montaje se puede ver que la australiana sube ligeramente la cintura de su pantalón para reducirla. Este movimiento lo acompaña con una postura mucho menos relajada que le hace lucir unos abdominales más marcados.

Buscando el ángulo perfecto

Una de las imágenes más vistas en los posados veraniegos de años anteriores está protagonizada por esos primeros planos de piernas (generalmente con un entorno paradisíaco de fondo). Por muy sencillas que parezcan, también tienen su truco. En este caso es la bloguera Çeçen quien muestra cómo se puede conseguir la toma perfecta. Para ello, comparte una imagen (derecha) con las piernas apoyadas en el borde y a su lado, otra fotografía (izquierda) con los muslos en el aire. Con esta última perspectiva consigue que las piernas parezcan más delgadas, aunque no sea la postura más común, como ella misma comenta.

‼️DIFFERENT KIND OF "KEEP IT REAL"‼️ I know some people are all done with the "keep it real" pictures so I thought I'd try a new one? I find this one kinda hilarious?chilling by the pool instagram vs real life? . Anyone familiar with the concept of having all "normal" legs when you're standing but as soon as you sit down they transform into huge piles of meat??? Why is it that those 2 sticks we use to walk expand to the size of Texas whenever they touch a chair?? . This is the most NORMAL thing ever yet us girls seem to be so self conscious about it? Hello! Your legs are being pushed against a surface, they are supposed to expand! This doesn't mean you're fat?? Even muscle will just look like a huge shapeless pile of meat when there's no flexing involved? If you don't want your legs to expand maybe invest in stone legs!⛰⛏ I'd choose marble ones??? . We've just lost touch with reality because on the internet all we see are those freaking hot dog legs? I am guilty of posting those too! Yet even I wondered on my last vacay why my legs were so "big" when I sat down. ? . Thought I'd take a good comparison pic and I'm pretty sure I've got a hernia now? Creating that thighgap & skinny legs feel was real hard? I had to arch my back like crazy, hold my legs up (serious ab work was involved) and had to sit on the edge of the pool which caused me to almost fall. Both my camera & I would have drowned in the sadness of insta perfection (I would survive the water though, I can swim!??) To people who do sit like this in real life; I admire your core strenght & willpower! . Yep, that's the truth behind poolside hotdog pics. Truth be told I'd much rather sit like that right pic whilst enjoying an actual hotdog? What is your fave poolside snack? Kinda wanted to hold a piece of watermelon whilst taking this but it turns out that's only for advanced instagram posing? I couldn't hold myself up, flex them abs, hold a watermelon & take pics at the same time? Guess I better start practicing for my next vacay!?? . Ps. I don't think there's anything wrong with the way my legs look in the pic on the right. Just showing you the difference! ? vs ? = both yummy??

El toque perfecto gracias al Photoshop

Aunque, sin duda, el imprescindible de la perfección fotográfica es el uso de Photoshop. Acostumbrados a verlo como el anónimo protagonista en portadas de revistas o anuncios en marquesinas, también llega hasta Instagram para realzar los atributos corporales. En este caso, ambas blogueras han mostrado cómo se puede utilizar para que diferentes partes de sus cuerpos se ajusten a los cánones de belleza actuales. Por ejemplo, Çeçen consigue unos glúteos más redondeados y una cintura más estrecha.

?PHOTOSHOP? Transforming your body using training & diet takes years yet some photo shop only takes seconds. We live in a world with beauty "standards". I don't have a tiny waist and huge hips and it always made me feel kinda insecure. Lots of us feel the pressure to look like the people we see in magazines. . And yes some of the pictures we see as "goals" were made with photoshop. But does that mean everything is photoshop? NO! I'm getting real tired of this hype to say that all that's different from our own body must be photoshop. Guess what? There are people with a body like this right picture. There are people with naturally huge butts & tiny waists. I'm just not one of them. Does not matter though cause I've still gotten tons of "photoshop" comments under certain pictures . . Scroll back on my account and you'll find pics of me showing how much lighting or posture can change your appearance. Lots of people found this difficult to believe so then it must be photoshopped? Yes, there's a filter but the shape of my body has not been altered. Just because something seems unreal to you doesn't always mean it's fake . . What you say on the internet has an impact on others. Imagine a girl with a naturally tiny waist and huge butt always getting comments that she uses photoshop even though she doesn't. That must suck right? Imagine an insecure girl using photoshop to look "prettier". Commenting that she is "still ugly as fuck" might indeed make her stop using photoshop. She'll get plastic surgery now . . People will always be doing things we don't agree with or simply don't understand. But does that really affect your life? Let's try to be kind to eachother. Hate won't make this world a better place ?? . I know you probably thought that this post would be a rant on how there are "idiots" using photoshop but it isn't. Guess what? In real life you will also come across people who seem "perfect". And fuck, that's not photoshop. Work on your selfconfidence and know that you are gorgeous too! Someone elses beauty is not the absence of your own. As long as you are happy being you it shouldn't really matter what others are doing! YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!❤

Mientras que Lee, además de realzar sus glúteos y reducir la cintura, utiliza un filtro para que su piel quede perfecta y elimina la celulitis junto con alguna que otra imperfección de sus piernas.

FEAR THE PHOTOSHOPPED PHOTO! How many times have you looked at a photo of yourself and thought negatively about it? How many times have you compared yourself to the models in the magazine, or more likely, the 'models' on instagram and social media and thought 'nope I don't look like that'? ? How many times have you been tempted to add a filter, tweak the cellulite, remove the blemish, maximize the booty, in order to portray a more 'socially acceptable' version of yourself to the world? Because you feel you aren't 'enough' as you are. ? Subconsciously we are primed to find certain body types more acceptable. This can be very subtle changes to photographs seen on a daily basis. But these small changes resonate deeply within our minds. Shaping our beliefs about the way we 'should' look, and therefore creates unrealistic comparisons and perpetuates negative self talk which becomes low self esteem. ? Recognizing the signs of a photoshopped image is important for our mental health. Understanding that sometimes what we are looking at is simply a fantastical image created on something designed to suit virtual reality, NOT the real world. ? The good news is. YOU HAVE CONTROL! Don't like someone images because they make you feel shit? You look and think 'why can't that be me, why aren't my legs smooth, my thighs smaller, my butt bigger, my waist skinnier, my arms more defined? I'm disgusting. I'm fat. I'm gross'…UNFOLLOW!!!!! ? I have been victim to this myself. I unfollowed a lot of women (no offense) because it was damaging my self esteem. I didn't look and feel motivated, I felt devalued and defective. I only follow people who remind me to stay REAL with myself and with the world. Yes I'll add a filter sometimes, I love photography. But I'll NEVER adjust my body through an app and post it as a real image. That's adding fuel to an already all consuming fire. ? Take your control. Don't fear your unfiltered self ? #keepingitreal #dedicated #bodytransformation #transformationtuesday #strongnotskinny #bbg #bodygoals #fitness #inspo #kaylaitsines #progressnotperfection #muscle #training #girlswholift #fitspo

Como explican en cada publicación, ambas quieren remover conciencias con estos montajes. A modo de denuncia, pretenden lanzar un mensaje contra la esclavitud por la estética. «La intención de esta imagen es demostrar que cuando algo que ya era ‘bueno’ y se altera para ser ‘mejor’, lo que se está haciendo es transmitir el mensaje de que la versión ‘real’ de uno mismo no es lo suficientemente buena”, explica Lee.

Esta psicóloga de 27 años empezó a cuestionar todo lo que veía en internet cuando se dio cuenta que tras seguir un plan ‘fitness’ que combinaba con pautas de nutrición y deporte parecía que nunca se ajustaba a los cánones de belleza establecidos. Así, su cuerpo mejoraba, pero su autoestima caía en picado por querer siempre aspirar a algo mejor y que, en muchos casos, ni tan siquiera era real. Para ella, las fotografías con Photoshop «pueden hacer mucho daño provocando ideas poco saludables a los usuarios». Por eso, aconseja a sus seguidores que dejen de seguir a las cuentas que lo hacen. Ella ya lo ha hecho. 

Por su parte, Çeçen también pretende con estos montajes hacer una crítica en la misma línea. “Es triste ver que los cuerpos a los que la gente aspira son falsos o tienen Photoshop», apunta en su Instagram. Todas estas publicaciones han conseguido miles de ‘me gusta’ y han generado comentarios de los usuarios que muestran su apoyo a estas iniciativas de denuncia.
