Tahira Kashyap’s Reality Check After Kendall Jenner’s Lingerie Photoshoot Went Viral Is What Every Woman Needs To Hear
It was late Friday night, the time I usually dedicate to some guilt-free social media scrolling, when I stumbled upon this Valentine’s Day photoshoot of Skims lingerie line. There was Kendall Jenner posing in a red bikini and flaunting her ever-so envious body. I rubbed my eyes in disbelief, looked at my belly rolls and contemplated if it’s worth leaving the half slice of pizza I already had in my mouth and hitting the gym the next day. I was just one of those million female followers of the supermodel who was left stumped and ended up reassessing their own body after looking at the viral pictures.
Seeing her tiny waist, thigh gap and skinny figure got women everywhere comparing themselves with and sparked body insecurity because who looks like that? A lot of comments on her BTS photos and video consisted of young women wishing they could be leaner, had arms like her and more. We often stumped seeing someone seemingly perfect on social media and end up judging and even hating ourselves. Tahira Kashyap felt the same way for a moment after looking at Jenner’s photos but reaffirmed that self-love is more important than looking a certain way. She shared a black and white selfie long post about how she’s grateful for her weight, every kilo of it, and that’s something every woman needs to hear right now.

Tahira wrote in the caption, Kendall and her tiny thong pictures are all over the internet and like many women I too wondered how is it freakin possible to look like that! The belly button is just a seductive slit or more like a kala tikka we put on kids and I don’t know how that tiny portion of cloth could hide her essentials esp down below. And so it was time to reflect (quite literally) and assess, more so judge, my reality.”
She went on to share the reason why she loves every pound she’s got, even when she’s trying to shed them off. “And so it was time to reflect (quite literally) and assess, more so judge, my reality. Hmmm… what do I think about what I saw? Well I saw this 69 kg (every kilogram matters) woman (out of which four Kendall’s can be taken out) with strong limbs and bruises that she got yesterday by actually saving her puppy, her daughter and ‘didi'(sister) by jumping in the lift as the sensors weren’t working and it was closing its doors on the three of them who were waiting for my son to join,” she wrote.
She ended the post with, “I felt quite heroic and grateful to this weight that I am trying to beat off , for had it not been for that, someone would have def gotten hurt! Grateful to you ass for quite literally saving all our asses! Moral of the story don’t wait for dysfunctional closed doors to open the way to love yourself a wee bit more.” We absolutely agree!

Kendall Jenner is gorgeous but it doesn’t mean all of us need to look like her and feel any less of ourselves, regardless of what body type we are blessed with. There is no such thing as a perfect body and even the most perfect-looking celebrities have their own share of insecurities. After the photoshoot went viral, Kendall Jenner told her fans and all the women whose body confidence plummeted post seeing her in all her glory, “I am an extremely lucky girl. appreciative of all that I have. But I want you to know I have bad days too and that I hear you! You are beautiful just the way you are!!! It’s not always as perfect as it may seem.” There! you’ve heard it from the horse’s mouth. No one is really perfect and how anyone looks has nothing to do with you. So let’s stop comparing ourselves to other women, celebrity or not, and invest more time in self-love and appreciation.
