Many plus-size peeps are very uncomfortable in front of cameras, as they are extremely insecure about their appearance. They usually don’t like the idea of taking pictures, because they feel they won’t turn out great. But we’re here to tell everyone that that’s just NOT TRUE, and more often than not, the images come out less than satisfactory because the posers don’t know how to pose!
Taking pictures is all about finding the right angles to look bomb-ass. Not only that, doing a variety of poses and taking different approaches can definitely help in getting the perfect photo to adorn your Instagram. So, we’re here to help our plus-size girlies on different ways to pose for photos that will boost that confidence, and show them all who’s the REAL bad b**ch.
The Girly Kick
An adorable pose that is easily achievable. A bright smile with one leg kicked up lights up your whole picture, and gives off positive vibes. Kick your leg up at any angle you wish and your picture will still look hella good.
Show Them Curves
Fit looking on fire that day? Show it off with a picture of you in front of a mirror. With a phone in front of your face and your curves on display, your notifications will be blowing up.
Trust me, I get tired of standing up too, so take a picture of yourself sitting down, looking cute as ever. Of course, angle is everything, which means putting your phone in front of your feet to elongate your body perfectly.
Leave Them To The Dust
Again, with your leg up – super cute – but throw that booty in front of the camera and you’ll look extra cute! A perfect photo to decorate your feed with some spicy caption, and they’ll be liking your picture left and right.
Dainty Fingers Stay Together
Don’t know what to do with your delicate fingers? Gotchu – just hold them together delicately and your picture will glow! A perfect pose to emphasise your waist without even showing it.
Being plus-sized means they know who’s boss – so, why not take a picture of you looking all bossed up? A hand on your waist to accentuate your curvy figure, and another hand on your head – people looking at your picture will be GAGGING!
Lean On It
Unflattering angles are a no-no in our household. So, lean towards the camera – it’s the perfect photo to show off your figure. It’s like you don’t give a f***, while still giving a f*** about taking bomb-ass pictures.
Have fun and experiment with different angles and poses to get the best photos for your Instagram. Never be shy in front of a camera and always be confident, because confidence is the first thing people see when they look at your pictures.
