Plussize-modeller i dit Instagram-feed kan være sundt for dig, viser ny undersøgelse

Giver du din krop al den kærlighed, som den fortjener?

13. juni 2017 af Maria Broe Trustrup Hansen

Har du også svært ved at elske din krop og give den al den kærlighed, som den fortjener? Så er du absolut ikke alene! 

Vi kvinder kommer ofte til at fokusere på alt det, som vi ikke bryder os om ved vores kroppe – den ekstra delle, vores højde eller størrelsen på vores bryster. 

Selvom du sikkert også prøver at rive dig fri fra de negative tanker, kan det være forbandet svært at give slip og bare elske din krop, som den er. Spørgsmålet er, hvordan du bliver bedre til at holde af dig selv, og det giver en ny undersøgelse nu svaret på. 

Plussize-modeller og kropsidealer 

Undersøgelsen er foretaget af en gruppe forskere på Florida State University. Forskerne undersøgte 49 kvinder i alderen 18-22 år. Kvinderne ønskede alle at tabe sig, og de havde generelt ikke et særligt positivt billede af sig selv og deres kroppe.

Kvinderne fik vist en lang række billeder af forskellige modeller. Undervejs skulle kvinderne beskrive, hvad de følte i forhold til deres egen krop, og hvorvidt de kunne genkende sig selv i modellerne.

Det viste sig, at kvinderne havde et langt mere positivt billede af dem selv og deres kroppe, når der blev vist et billede af en plussize-model i forhold til en tynd model. Kvinderne kunne også bedre huske plussize-modellerne, og de lavede ikke negative sammenligninger mellem sig selv og modellerne. 

Styrker kvinders selvværd 

Ifølge forskerne er undersøgelsen et klart bevis på, at plussize-modeller kan hjælpe kvinder med at få et mere positivt syn på sig selv og deres kroppe. 

Det er derfor godt for kvinders selvværd, når plussize-modeller viser deres smukke former på Instagram og andre sociale medier. Vi har samlet et lille udpluk her – forhåbentlig kan det hjælpe lidt på din kærlighed til din egen krop.

Your fat rolls are beautiful🙌 ⬆️I made a video about them (link in my bio)⬆️ And the reason we have been lead to believe they aren't is because we don't see them in the media unless someone's being shamed for weight gain or ridiculed for their body. This is NOT the truth and not OK. Having rolls of skin / fat that are soft / squidgy or big / small does not define your beauty. I wanted to show you how my body looks when I'm relaxed and when I'm posing right next to each other so you can see how easy it is to manipulate how a body looks. (I filmed myself doing this for you on my YouTube) As a model in the industry 13years I've seen nearly all the pics chosen of me for lingerie & swimwear shoots are the ones where my stomach looks flattest. Which for a long time lead me to believe that's how I should look. Because even if I did happen to have a few shots where I'm in a position you can see back fat or rolls someone had decided it's more "beautiful" "aspirational" or will inspire more customers to buy the product if those so called "flaws" don't exist. But things are changing I remember the first time I saw curvier models in editorials with their rolls and back fat and I remember the first time I shot with @aerie and they wanted me to not pose but be real and just myself. Then when I saw my first campaign with them and I could see my unretouched body - pics with rolls / back fat I'm not gonna lie I was shocked. That quickly turned into joy because they made me feel good enough and knew that those "flaws" didn't mean I wasn't beautiful in fact showing that their models didn't have to be "flawless" was incredibly empowering. So thank you #AerieReal and everyone who created the movement it's not just game changing but life changing ILY😘 And that's why when I started my insta about 3years ago I created the #everyBODYisbeautiful bc we are more than the sum of our perfections we are all beautiful equal souls living in imperfectly perfect bodies.
