Instagram is like high school…except there’s concrete evidence who’s the most popular, aka how many followers you have. And guess what happens when you’re popular? Everyone wants to be like you, talk like you, dress like you, look like you and pretty much BE YOU.
So, I wanted to decode the Instagram beauty standard for fitness influencers. What aesthetics make you one of the most followed women in the female fitness category? And how does an ideal fitness influencer’s body compare against the body of Instagram’s top 100 most followed women vs the body of the average Blogilates fan vs the body of the average US woman?
I listed out the top 100 fitness influencers on Instagram and compared them in the following categories:
Definition on their stomach
Prominence of butt
Overall body shape
I think you will be shocked to see the results.
