After posting both sets of unedited and edited images, Reinhart left a powerful message on the topic of body confidence. 

“Camila and I have worked incredibly hard to feel confident and comfortable in the bodies that we have,” wrote Reinhart. 

“It’s an every day battle, sometimes. And to see our bodies become so distorted in an editing process is a perfect example of the obstacles we have yet to overcome,” she added.

“So we cannot stop fighting. Out battle has only just begun. We are fucking powerful, beautiful, and strong…we aren’t going to hide behind Photoshop to conform to beauty standards,” she wrote in another Story. 

“That’s why I’m calling out @Cosmopolitan_Philippines. It’s sad that you felt our bodies needed to be slimmed down. But Camila and I are fucking beautiful. As is. And you can’t ‘fix’ us,” Reinhart continues.
