This optical illusion video explains why we shouldn't be ashamed of cellulite

Fashion blogger, designer, and model Gabi Gregg just dropped the mic on cellulite. In an Instagram post from her latest photoshoot, Gregg showed how the appearance of cellulite can change in the blink of an eye.

For GabiFresh’s new line with Swimsuits for All, she modeled some new plus-sized swimsuits. And while she was strutting her stuff, a video shows that the cellulite on her thighs — which many of us struggle accepting on our bodies — can actually look like it’s no longer there based on the lighting.

As she captioned her optical illusion vid:

“Reminder that cellulite is normal and nothing to be ashamed of (and also depends on lighting! You can literally see mine “disappear” as I walk out of a shadow here).”

While society has deemed it unsightly, WebMD notes that cellulite is not actually a medical condition. It’s just a cosmetic feature that isn’t harmful and doesn’t even indicate that you are overweight. So beyond it being an optical illusion that sometimes your cellulite may not even be noticeable, the bigger point that Gregg is making is that cellulite’s nothing to be ashamed of.
