    Everyone's the same.

    You're used to your reflected self, so the you that you see in pictures is the other way round to the you that you see in the mirror.

    Plus still-shots very rarely do you justice unlike the real-life self you see in your reflection.

    Mirror is a reverse image of yourself, so when you see photos, you see closer to how other people see you, and because it doesn't match what you think you look like, you think you look bad.

    A picture of a cat which shows how focal length affects perspective.

    This is also the reason you look fab in the mirror and crap in photos.

    Mirrors are lies. I look diff in each mirror practically lol
    like weight-wise. My width differs but not dramatically. I just say **** it and take a photo to tell, or ask someone, or believe that it looks good on my own :rofl:

    They also say photos add 10 lbs of weight or something, Idk. Sounds like model struggles.

    i know how you feel. its not the fact that pictures are mirrored compared to real life even when i flip it i dont look the same. im not photogenic at all and rarely take a good photo of myself. it makes me self conscious tbh
