Influencer posts snaps posing and relaxing on beach to show reality behind pics

When influencers jet off on holiday, many share stunning pictures from the beach.

They look flawless as they sip on cocktails and lounge around in skimpy bikinis.

But in reality, these social media stars aren’t as “perfect” as they seem to be online.

Swimwear designer Karina Irby is a body positivity campaigner who wants fans to know that everyone looks different when not posing.

On Instagram, she posted two very different snaps of herself.

She smiles widely in a neon pink one-piece and strikes a pose by the sea first, while the second shows her sitting down on the sand.

Karina didn’t airbrush any of the lines on her body in the natural image.

The 31-year-old from Australia captioned the two pictures: “Me vs. me.

“There’s always a difference between posing and relaxing.

“So please don’t forget it.”

The post garnered more than 33,000 likes – and many thanked Karina for helping them to feel more comfortable in their skin.

Another said: “Thanks to you now, I love myself as I am. Thanks.”

A third wrote: “You are honestly one of the best influencers out here keeping it real.

“You inspire me to step outta my comfort zone more!!”

And a fourth added: “Love this!!! Yes, let’s not forget how amazing we all are.”
