Iskra Lawrence shares nude pregnancy Instagram post to give fans 'body update'
In this modern world of ours, we're confronted with unrealistic body images seemingly wherever we turn.
Once upon a time, it was merely on the covers of glossy magazines that we'd be sold ideas about how we 'should' look, and fad diets that purported to help you achieve the 'dream' body.
Yet now, the epidemic is arguably at its worst point. On social media, a quick scroll shows us images of improbably toned models with washboard abs and blindingly white teeth, while adverts attempt to monopolise beauty to sell us products.
This model, who has a large facial birthmark, is encouraging people to embrace the skin they're in:
There are people trying to redress the balance, though.
On Instagram, movements like body positivity and grombré (a trend encouraging people to embrace their grey hair) are working to give us a more realistic view of our bodies, reminding us that we all have imperfections.
And now, Iskra Lawrence has taken to Instagram to give her fans an update on her pregnancy, while sharing an important message about body image.
Ashley Graham shares nude pregnancy video with fans:
"Filmed a lil 6 month pregnancy body update
(Link in my bio to my Youtube video)
"I wanted to share my perspective as everyone’s journey is unique, my body is changing so much in totally new ways - it’s fascinating.
"As someone whose experienced body dysmorphia and disordered eating I wanted to talk from a recovery point of view and hopefully help you feel more comfortable on this journey too
"And for those not able or struggling to conceive I’m sending you my love and just working through the legalities so I can do the $ giveaway to help support you"
