Recently, there’s been a lot of buzz about the “Toblerone tunnel”. This “tunnel” is a triangular space between the thighs and two famous social media influencers, Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski, have posted pictures of their own upper thighs on social media. The young beauties want the world to know that they have achieved the “Toblerone Tunnel”. The problem with social media crazes like this is that they put more pressure on women to conform to an unrealistic ideal. They may trigger body issues in women who can’t measure up. If you have concerns about your shape, there are some practical ways to banish them and feel better about yourself.
Get Real About Normal Weight
Part of accepting yourself is “talking yourself down” when you feel insecure about your weight. All females see images of very thin women in the media. These images tend to play on the mind and spark insecurity. According to Psychology Today, most adolescents who have eating disorders blame two key issues for their problems. The issues are peer pressure and media images of skinny people.
Models Don’t Have Normal Bodies
Kendall Jenner is a model who is five feet ten inches tall and reportedly weighs just one hundred and nineteen pounds. According to Livestrong.com, the normal weight range for her height is between 129 pounds and 174 pounds. It’s important to understand that most fashion models do not have typical bodies. They are underweight. Lots of models and actresses have struggled with eating disorders, including former VS Angel, Erin Heatherton, and Lily Collins.
Fix What You Don’t Like
It’s not always about weight. Sometimes, women have body parts that they dislike and their hatred for particular “trouble spots” leads to body image problems. In the age of plastic surgery, there are plenty of options for changing the look of body parts, including nose jobs (rhinoplasty), breast augmentations and tummy tucks. According to Forbes.com, advances in technology are making cosmetic surgery more efficient and safer, too. Cosmetic surgery isn’t risk-free, but choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon will boost the odds of a safe and successful procedure.
Get Comfortable in Your Own Skin
Sometimes, it takes time to get comfortable in your own skin. Older women may develop more acceptance and love of their own bodies, when they were prone to body issues in their younger years. To love your body, you need to understand that health is the most important thing. If your body works well and is strong, you’re winning. A strong, healthy body should always be the ideal. Exercise and proper diet are not innovative tips for building body confidence, but they always work wonder.
