Body goals AF! Our May cover star Massy Arias is setting our beach bod goals pretty high. In these exclusive, gorgeous outtakes from our shoot, Arias shows off her beautifully sculpted tatted body.
“Right now I am pretty proud of the body I built,” the Instagram sensation said.
While this image highlights the womanly curves, she says she’s created with years of working out and eating right, Arias has, at times, received social media criticism for having a less-than feminine appearance.
“A lot of people don’t understand that pumped muscle is very different than core muscle,” she explained. “Usually, I’m pretty buff in the pictures I take because there’s blood circulating through my muscles, so I look a lot bigger. Also people don’t understand that when you’re cut, you look a lot bigger in pictures than you are in person. But when they see me in person, it’s, ‘Oh my God, you actually look toned. You do not look that muscular.”
“Plus, it’s all preference,” she added. “We all have to respect each other.”
Get to the gym, stat!!!
