Instagram versus Reality: Married At First Sight’s Jessika Power exposes the TRUTH behind glamorous bikini photo shoots on Instagram


Married At First Sight’s Jessika Power has shared a very relatable post exposing the reality of glamorous social media photo shoots.

The 28-year-old uploaded a glossy photo to Instagram on Saturday, while posing in black lingerie.

The seemingly effortless image was juxtaposed by another picture of Jessika that showed her ‘tummy, stretch marks and cellulite’.

She captioned the images: ‘I feel like when I scroll through my feed these days I see so many perfectly airbrushed beautiful models, influencers and celebrity’s advertising a certain standard of “perfect”. And it made me think….’

‘I’m quite transparent with you all in my stories as I don’t always have my hair or my makeup done and I’m most of the time living in the same shirt from the night before but does that kind of “normal” or “relatable” content carry over to my feed?”

She added that it always takes her ‘multiple shots’ to find the perfect photo she wants to upload, which includes perfect lighting, her best angle and the use of ‘more than one’ editing app. 

‘But the truth of it is, I DON’T BLOODY LOOK LIKE THAT HALF OF THE TIME,’ she said.

Jessika went on to say her weight ‘fluctuates constantly’, she battles dermatitis and her hair isn’t always perfect.

‘I want to try and be more body positive and embrace the fact that as a woman I have a tummy, I have stretch marks and I have some cellulite on my ass from all of the bloody bread and carbs I decide to ingest on an hourly basis,’ she added.

‘But I feel good, I feel healthy and I’m happy with whatever I do with my body because I chose to do it! Not because I wanted to look like somebody else.’

Jessika continued: ‘I hope that this photo helps to show that the standard of beauty we try to achieve isn’t exactly real. I want you all to feel beautiful in your own skin.

'I want to try and be more body positive and embrace the fact that as a woman I have a tummy, I have stretch marks and I have some cellulite on my ass from all of the bloody bread and carbs I decide to ingest on an hourly basis but I feel good, I feel healthy and I'm happy,' she wrote

‘Please don’t beat yourself up for not sticking to a diet routine. Don’t feel down that you decided to skip a gym day.’

She continued: ‘And it’s DAMN okay to just wanna chill in comfy clothing, pig out on snacks all day while watching a movie.’

She also urged fans to be ‘kind to yourselves’ and not be influenced by social media and magazines.
