Loose Women’s Nadia Sawalha strips down for empowering snaps to reveal ‘smoke and mirrors’ of Instagram

Nadia Sawalha has stripped down to her underwear to embrace her incredible natural body and highlight the “smoke and mirrors” of Instagram.

The 55 year old Loose Women star posted for the camera in a black-and-white leaf-patterned bra and a pair of black knickers with a lace trim around the top.

Nadia took several different photos in similar poses from different angles and with different lighting to highlight different camera tricks people use when taking photographs for Instagram.

The first comparison photo shows Nadia with her back to the camera as she smiles with her head turned to the side.

“It’s all smoke and mirrors”.

Nadia then candidly admitted: “I would do anything to have the years back that I wasted Obsessing about my ‘flaws’ the only thing that was actually flawed was my ‘stinking thinking ’ [sic]


“I work everyday at being more accepting of my beautiful warts and all body . It is what it is , and I love it for being in good health ( fingers crossed ) and for birthing my babies .”

She then gave a shout out to more body-positive influencers who she follows as she continued: “Check out @em_clarkson and @chessiekingg who inspire me everyday with their mind blowing body confidence posts !

“These women cut through the c**p and are helping to build a better future for all of our daughters .”

Nadia then had a message for her fans as she urged: “We have to put an end to being so f**ked up and the only way to do that is to brave it out !


“Dare to bare girls !! It feels so good when you do . And you will honestly be at a loss as to why you didn’t do it sooner !!!

“Who will dare to bear ?!? Fee the fear and do it anyway ! I promise you won’t look back !”
