Milly Smith decidió darle una lección al mundo. Y es que la muchacha quiso mostrar que la es completamente natural en cualquiera de sus formas por medio de su cuenta de .

La joven mujer reivindicó lo hermoso de los cuerpos femeninos comunes y corrientes con una fotografía suya que pronto se volvió . Esta muestra de amor propio y libertad sin ataduras a los cánones de belleza nos hace valorarnos tal y como somos.

La imagen está compuesta por dos fotos. En la primera Milly está en ropa interior con unas pantimedias que funcionan de faja para reducir el abdomen. En la otra, se muestra ella misma pero sin los milagrosos resultados de las medias.

Same girl, same day, same time. 💛 Not a before and after. Not a weight loss transformation. Not a diet company promotion. 💛 I am comfortable with my body in both. Neither is more or less worthy. Neither makes me more or less of a human being. Neither invites degrading comments and neither invites sleezy words. 💛 We are so blinded to what a real unposed body looks like and blinded to what beauty is that people would find me less attractive within a 5 second pose switch! How insanely ridiculous is that!? 💛 I love taking these, it helps my mind so much with body dysmorphia and helps me rationalise my negative thoughts. 💛 Don't compare, just live for you. There is no one on this planet who's like you and that's pretty damn amazing don't ya think. The world doesn't need another copy, it needs you. 💛 We are worthy, valid and powerful beyond measure 💙🌟 (If you don't pull your tights up as high as possible are you really human?)

‘La misma chica, el mismo día, a la misma hora. No hay un antes y un después. No es una transformación por una pérdida de peso. No es una promoción de una compañía de dietas. Me siento cómoda con mi cuerpo en ambas
, escribió en su post la valiente mujer.

RELAX (don't do it....🎤) I used to sit in positions to make myself appear slimmer. I would sit uncomfortably to avoid a roll or to avoid my thighs expanding to the size of Austria when I sit down (ya feel me?). ❤ My weight back then was my worth and if anything made me look bigger I instantly felt worthless. ❤️ I wouldn't ever relax unless I was in big baggy clothes that hid my changing shape as I sat. I wouldn't bathe so I didn't have to see rolls or skin flattened out by the bottom of the bath. I was literally and mentally very uncomfortable in my body. ❤ I still find myself worrying about this to a certain extent- I no longer let it affect my worth but it can still be a bit of a fear for me and can lead to a bad body image day. I've recently taken steps to really try and combat my feelings towards sitting and relaxing. ❤ A few evenings a week I have sat in my underwear or naked in front of a mirror or camera and just let myself sit in a comfortable position- I've allowed my body to just relax. It was uncomfortable to see at first but by the 3rd or 4th time I knew what to expect and suddenly it didn't seem to scary. ❤ I studied the movement and the way my body changed when it was unposed and relaxed; it felt freeing. I didn't try and like what I saw at first I just wanted to become accustom to it, to the changing shapes. The freeing feeling felt rather beautiful to me and I slowly started to love and appreciate my body relaxed, unposed and comfortable. I now practice it as often as I can to allow myself to transfer it to everyday life. 💜 Don't let the way your body changes affect your view of it or yourself. Sitting, stretching and bending will all change your bodies shape and size temporarily and it's OK! It's natural and happens to everybody! Don't be afraid of it and don't spend your life uncomfortable because of it 💜💛 We are valid, worthy and powerful beyond measure 💛

Just a same girl, same day, different pose reminder that our bodies look different in different angles and that it's perfectly ok, normal and natural. You don't need to look like anybody else but YOU ❤ 💛 I get asked a lot recently how to start a Bopo insta page as they want confidence. I often come up with nothing because I'm not entirely sure I understand. 💛 Are they asking me how to get started on a journey to self love or just how to start an insta page to get justification that their body is worthy in hope it will bring them self love? 💛 Before I put my photos and words out onto Instagram I started my journey to self love with myself; I mean it's still a very personal journey but I want to share it now and help others too. I took photos and wrote down love notes to my body without showing them to a soul- it was just for my soul and my mind. 💛 Starting an insta page could help you on your journey of course but your motives are what's important- know what they are before starting is my advice. Maybe do it off social media first and get a feel for your journey and what works/doesn't work for you and do it for YOU. Do it for your soul. Your follower count doesn't matter or make you more or less worthy. 10,000 people telling you your pretty wont bring about self love either. It's so much more than that and it starts deep inside yourself not with your aesthetics. Bopo isn't a 'trend'. 💛 It's not about how many you can impress, you need to be impressing yourself. Make yourself proud.

‘Ninguna de las dos es más o menos digna. No me hace más o menos humana. No invita a los comentarios degradantes, y tampoco a las palabras necias. Estamos tan ciegos ante lo que es realmente un cuerpo real sin poses y ciegos ante lo que es la belleza que la gente me encontraría menos atractiva en sólo cinco segundos. ¿No es ridículo?’
, dijo orgullosa de su cuerpo.

YOU DONT👏🏾HAVE TO👏🏻 SHARE 👏🏽 UNDRESSED 👏🏻 PHOTOS 👏🏾 TO BE 👏🏿 BOPO! . Bopo is about encouraging and adopting a more forgiving, accepting approach to yourself and your body. Learning to love yourself inside out! It can be as personal or as socially shared as you like. . 💙 Building your self esteem through accepting your body and image doesn't have to mean sharing skin online. I do! And for many others it's empowering and helpful but if it's not for you then THATS OKAY 🙏🏻 . 💙 Whilst I think it is of great importance to build a relationship with your naked self and to realise it's nothing to be ashamed of- it's perfectly okay to not be comfortable with sharing that online; after all it's YOUR body and YOUR journey. . 💙 Do what empowers you, support what empowers others! Do what feels right for you and your body-whilst pushing yourself out of your comfort zone is very important it's also important to not feel forced or pressured into doing something you ultimately don't want to do! . 💙 Your journey is as unique as your body. Let it be that way. Don't compare someone else's journey or photos to yours- let yourself find what's best for you. We are worthy, valid and powerful beyond measure 💙

Today I purchased a 'womans magazine' called closer or as I like to call them 'intensifiers of the phenomenon of body dissatisfaction' but it doesn't quite have the same ring to it. I wanted to see just how much crap is in there about weight loss, shaping up, hating yourself and oppressing women/sexualising women. I've never read one before but I know 1000's of women do on the daily. I'm not going to lie to you. I found myself immensely triggered and feeling quite low after flicking through without even reading any of the articles. The before and after pictures with words lazy/fat next to happy/healthy really set my mind off overtime and this is from someone who's clued up on the tricks/mind games and into self love so imagine what this can do to someone more vulnerable. Right on the front cover as the main feature there are two huge pictures of celebrities in bikinis who have lost weight with captions such as 'I'm finally happy'. Also on the front it says 'eat yourself slim' and 'diet special'. Without even buying this magazine the messages and words are subconsciously seeping into minds by being in huge, eye catching,bright letters plastered across shop shelves. Out of 100 pages the majority of them included articles or advert about diets, slimming down, 'what celebs eat' or 'food trends'. After counting the calories on one the celeb plans it came to 1200, thats atrocious and damn right dangerous. What pissed me off the most is the reoccurring adverts for diet companies knowing full well women will be made to feel shit by this magazine so they latch onto their prey and offer them a solution. SCREW YOU. WELL I AIN'T BUYING IT (ok well I did buy this one but I meant in theory, you feel me?) There's more to life than these magazines could ever show you. They are making money on your misery, don't let them. Don't buy them, stick your middle finger up and boycott anything making you feel less than 100% worthy, beautiful and queenly. How dare they try and tell us we are anything other than worthy of love, happiness and anything we wish to do right now in this moment. We are powerful, worthy and loved ❤️

17 to 23 Size 6 to size 10/12 Not a before and after just a then and now. ❤️ I didn't just gain weight. I gained a life, my son, my fiancé, happiness, mental clarity, freedom and energy. I gained a relationship with my body that I never thought I would- I respect it. ❤️ I left my disorder at rock bottom and climbed my way up. I hit every obstacle and I'm still hitting them now but without the whole weight of my ED dragging me down I have the strength to keep going. ❤️ I want every single one of you embarking on recovery to know that you're not alone, the sun will shine and you CAN and WILL leave the grasp of your eating disorder. ❤️ You don't need to look a certain way for your pain to be valid, you don't need to be under or over weight for your struggles to be real and worthy of help. Reach out to those around you, you're worthy of love and support. You don't need to live like this and you don't have to go through it alone. ❤ You've got this warrior. You are loved, worthy and powerful beyond measure 💜

En el Instagram de Milly podemos encontrar otras fotografías y videos que grafican su punto. Y es que los rollitos y la celulitis no son un problema para esta chica que se muestra muy contenta con su apariencia a pesar de que no está dentro de lo comúnmente aceptado.

I have scars on my body. 💛 Some are self inflicted; they resemble pain, strength, surviving and bravery. 💛 Some are from my body stretching from gaining weight/gaining life, some are from Elijah growing in my tum and they resemble growth. 💛 Some are from childhood memories and falls and bumps, some are from surgeries and scary hospital stays and they resemble recovery. 💛 Some you can't see. They're etched on my heart. Scars of painful times, painful memories. Although they've now healed they leave their bumpy tracks reminding me of how far I've come and they resemble my story. 💛 None of them are the same but all of them are mine. I'm not ashamed of any of them-I won't hide them anymore. Wether they're big and red or soft and silver; your scars are nothing to be ashamed of. 💛💛💛 Day 18 of #selflovebootcamp @omgkenzieee & @nourishandeat. #Scarrednotscared - hashtag from the amazingly wonderful @mindsetforlifeltd

#donthatetheshake momma style 😂 This is extremely hard for me to post. A photo is one thing but watching your body move around is another. I've felt very sluggish, bloated and I've binged a few times over the last week. I just don't feel myself HOWEVER it's that fear and those bad feels that I want to use to drive me forward. I want to leave my comfort zone in the dust and keep fighting. Our bodies move and groove, let them jiggle and let them shake ❤ I see #donthatetheshake as the dance of body love, a dance to celebrate diversity and love, thank you @yourstruelymelly A few years ago I wouldn't even allow myself to shower so I didn't have to look at myself and that was on a 'good' day. Now with the help of you guys and this bad ass community I can dance in my pants, let my parts jiggle and feel queenly. You can do it and you will do it. Bad days come and go, bad feels come and go but Bopo will stay in your heart forever. ❤️💜❤️💜❤️💜❤️
