Writing on Instagram, Ariella said: “I’ve had my fair share of comments about my cellulite. And trust me I’ve heard it all.

“Some times it even makes me want to stop posting photos like this. To give in to what society deems as unachievable expectations of beauty. To hide. To cover up.

“But, the only way to show people this is normal is to post it. So this post is for every woman who has been told their cellulite is too much. That it’s something they should be insecure about.

“Because it’s NORMAL. And it’s a beautiful part of myself that I never want to hide out of embarrassment or shame. It’s NOTHING to be ashamed about. It’s imperfect. Just like each and every one of us. Let’s make THIS normal.”

Ariella was praised for her honesty on social media with over 22,000 likes on the post. Admirers expressed their appreciation of her candidness concerning body image, endorsing her message of self-love and confidence.

One follower said: “Your account was one of the first body positive accounts that made me start questioning. It made me realise the media and society use our bodies against us and try to shame us into believing that what they post is ‘normal’ anything outside of that is to be hidden or worked on and then they try to sell us the ‘solution’ to a problem they created.”

While another added: “Your body and bum is like mine! When I see your posts I think ‘wow she looks so good! ‘ And then realize that I look good too! Don’t stop posting.”

A third chimed in: “You are absolutely right, for a woman no matter how she behaves, there is always cellulite and that is normal. You should not judge a woman only by her body, but by the inner beauty of her heart and soul.”

A fourth comment also read: “Don’t hide. Don’t cover up. You’re beautiful and an inspiration for me to love myself more. You are stunning. Thank you for sharing your everything with us.”
