Iskra Lawrence wanted to make a point about the fitspo images we see online.

Have a quick scroll through your Insta feed and you’d be forgiven for thinking that everyone and their gran has a thigh gap, six-pack abs and glutes galore.

But if those pics of impossibly chiselled abs and toned legs, leave you feeling a little bit insecure, take heart girl, because model Iskra Lawrence is proving just how bullshit those images really are.

Wanting to prove a point about how easy it is to manipulate a pic with lighting, angles and even your posture, Iskra took to Instagram to vent.

In side-by-side selfies, she shows how easily she can fake a thigh gap, simply by standing with her legs slightly apart and her hips tilted backwards.


“No thigh gap or thigh gap who cares,” she writes under the picture. “We all think we want different things and we should because we are all different, there’s no wrong way just be the healthiest & happiest for you. I’ll be the first one to tell you pics are all about good lightening and angles. [Sic] Always remember social medias not real life never let anyone else’s pics make you feel insecure about yourself. If you don’t look like her and she doesn’t look like you that’s how it’s meant to be. You are meant to be YOU no one else, your body is your home so love and respect it. When you look after it beautiful things happens.”

Iskra has spoken out about body positivity in the past and has been using her Instagram account to encourage others to love their bodies as they are, with the hashtag #EveryBodyIsBeautiful.

✨?Had to make a #slow-mo too?…This is for anyone who has ever been called FAT. Thanks for the inspirational words on a recent pic @zseanzbrown ?? “Fat cow. It’s only cus every F****r on this planet is obese that that’s the norm… Plus-size models? give me a F*****g breaking. Everyone needs to stop eating McDonald’s, the NHS is f****d because of people like her eating too many bags of crisps.” Ps I do not condone binge eating. I eat whatever I want in moderation. I will eat crisps but I’ll also make healthy home cooked meals and workout regularly. The message is who gives a F what anyone else thinks of you. YOU are the only one who decides yourself worth✨ And sorry I’m usually not rude or give anyone the finger but these online trolls smdh ??? #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful
