Louise O’Reilly is one of Ireland’s top models, having worked all over the world for a number of major agencies.
The plus-size model, who has faced her fair share of trolls on the internet, was praised earlier this week for posting a REAL image of her in a swimsuit.
In the world of social media, the use of photoshop and editing apps has become more apparent in recent years, but Louise’s latest post is far from fake.
Taking to Instagram, the blonde beauty shared a gorgeous snap of her posing in a blue swimsuit.
A touch of back fat and cellulite.. two of the most common combinations for all woman at any size and yet we rarely see it in the media… how crazy! I’ll just leave this photo here then ???#effyourbeautystandards #bodylove #stylemecurvy #summerstyle #beyoutiful #sundaythoughts #bodypositive #celebratemysize #plusmodelmag
Banishing the unrealistic expectations that are often encouraged online and in magazines, Louis wrote, “A touch of back fat and cellulite.. two of the most common combinations for all woman at any size and yet we rarely see it in the media… how crazy!”
“I’ll just leave this photo here then,” she added.
The 27-year-old’s followers quickly commended Louise for her honesty, with one woman commenting, “THANK YOU!!! It is so nice to see someone who looks like me!”
