How REAL is reality?

Anything we see on social media must be taken with a pinch of salt

The amazing Saira Khan might be a Loose Woman, but there’s one thing about her that isn’t loose… her banging bod. Or her knickers.

We all know this because she ‘bravely’ posted Instagram pictures of herself wearing gorgeous undies demonstrating how it’s so easy to cheat and sell an unrealistic body image on social media.

She did this by breathing in – gorgeous. And breathing out – er, equally gorgeous. Not joking, but I have had Sunday dinners that leave me with a bigger tummy than Saira in her ‘after’ photo.

I totally get the 50-year-old mum of two’s message that all women should be body confident, but when you have suspiciously good hair, make-up, lighting and lingerie in a photo that proves how supposedly relaxed you are about being an ordinary middle-aged mum, some of us start to wobble a bit. Not just our bellies.
