Una modelo de ropa interior revela la realidad que hay detrás de las sesiones de fotos

Vivimos en una época en la que las principales firmas de ropa nos avasallan día a día con nuevas líneas de moda. El principal problema de sus campañas de publicidad está relacionado con el cuerpo de muchas de las modelos que posan con las últimas tendencias. Ya en el campo de la ropa interior, esto se acentúa aún mucho más, segmento en el que parece que ir más allá de la talla 36 es una línea roja que no se debe cruzar.

Megan Jayne Crabbe, ante esta situación, decidió actuar a través de su perfil de Instagram. Ella sabe mejor que nadie qué trastornos alimenticios pueden generar todos esos anuncios que vemos día a día. En el pasado sufrió una de estas enfermedades y, una vez que la superó, se dio cuenta que lo más importante es saber quererse y aceptarse tal y como uno es. Así pues, @bodyposipanda nació como un proyecto para dar visibilidad a un colectivo que día a día lucha por gustarse asimismo en base a su constitución.

El principal objetivo de Megan Jayne es transmitir su positivismo para que muchas mujeres y, sobre todo, chicas jóvenes (el perfil más afectado por trastornos alimenticios) dejen a un lado sus discrepancias sobre su cuerpo y se centren en valorar su aspecto físico. Sin duda alguna, el mensaje que más ha calado fue uno que publicó el pasado 17 de julio de 2015, el cual decía lo siguiente:

I want you to know that this isn't your fault. All those thoughts about your body, all those things you hate about yourself – they didn't spring to life all by themselves. You live in a world that has taught you self hatred so well, and for that you hold no blame. It's not your fault that this world made you believe that your beauty can be seen in a mirror alone. It's dazed you with a blur of magazine covers and makeover shows. It's not your fault that this world tells you to value thin over everything, closing it's eyes to the people that sends to an early grave. Nobody told you that you don't exist to look like an empty image of photoshopped 'perfection'. Nobody told you don't exist to be looked at. If I could, I'd take you away. I'd put you in a world that teaches the truth – that you exist as so much more than a body. So when you're struggling, when those thoughts won't go away, when all the body positivity in the world won't quiet those voices. Just know that it isn't your fault. And that somewhere, there's another world where you can see how beautiful you really are. 💜💙💚🌈🌞

Quiero que sepas que esto no es culpa tuya. Todos esos pensamientos sobre tu cuerpo, todas esas cosas que odias de ti misma – no salieron por si mismos. Tú vives en un mundo que te ha enseñado muy bien el odio y por eso no tienes ninguna culpa. No es tu culpa que este mundo te haya hecho creer que tu belleza puede ser vista solo en un espejo. Nadie te dijo que no existes para que parezca una imagen vacía de photoshop que suponga la ‘perfección’. Nadie te dijo que no existes para ser mirado. Si pudiera, te llevaría lejos. Te pondría en un mundo que enseña la verdad, que existes como mucho más que un cuerpo. Así que cuando estés luchando, cuando esos pensamientos no desaparecezcan, cuando toda el positivismo del cuerpo en el mundo no silencie esas voces. Sólo sé que no es culpa tuya. Y que en algún lugar, hay otro mundo donde puedes ver lo bonita que realmente eres.

REAL TALK: the photo on the left is staged as hell. I was told where to put my legs, how to angle my arm, which way to tilt my hips and even how to hold my fingers. My eyes were watering from the false lashes and my hair will probably never look like that again. THESE ARE THE TYPE OF IMAGES WE COMPARE OURSELVES TO EVERYDAY! A posed, polished, perfectly lit snapshot of the highlight reel. Except this photoshoot was different, because after all the typically 'flattering' lingerie posing, @curvykate asked me to go home and recreate the pictures make-up free, hair undone and relaxed. Because behind-the-scenes deserves to be celebrated too! Our bodies are glorious from every angle. Posed or unposed. Polished or not. And we sure as hell don't need to compare ourselves to anybody's highlight reel, after all, the model in the magazine doesn't even look like the model in the magazine most of the time. 💜💙💚🌈🌞 You can see more about this photoshoot on @curvykate's blog, the link is in my bio! ✨ Left photo by @alisonvwebster with make-up by @sharlottejacks 💫

"Wait so you just decided to RUIN your body?" Nah, I just stopped torturing myself every day for not fitting an image I was never supposed to be. · "But you look so much healthier to me before." That's funny, you looked so much more intelligent to me before you equated health with weight and forgot that mental health is health too. · "You could have stayed the same and loved your body, you didn't need to get fat." I could have stayed the same and spiralled back into the eating disorder that almost killed me when I was 15. I could have kept starving myself and obsessively working out for hours everyday but it never would have lead me to self love. No matter how much weight I lost there was always still something to hate. And sure, people don't NEED to gain weight to find their self love, this is just what my body needed to do to match up to my mental freedom. THIS IS MY HAPPY BODY. · "But surely you can't be happy looking like that now, I could never be happy in that body." I didn't think I could either, but as it turns out, happiness isn't a size. And I wasted far too many years believing that it was. Now I'm not going to stop letting people know that they deserve happiness exactly as they are. They deserve to live now, not 10 pounds from now. They deserve that mental freedom. So to every person reading this: I hope you get your freedom too, however it might look. I'll be cheering you on every step of the way. 💜💙💚🌈🌞 P.s. these are all comments I received on my last before/after picture, luckily for me, they just make me want to keep going even more 👊
