The ‘instant boob job’ pose influencers swear by that involves putting your arms behind you head

An influencer has revealed the secret trick celebrities use while posing for bikini shots that creates the illusion of an ‘instant boob job’.

Danae Mercer, 33, who lives in Dubai, has built a 2.4 million-strong Instagram following with her pictures revealing how a simple tweak in posing, lighting and outfit can dramatically change how an influencer looks on social media.

In her latest post, she reveals how putting your arms up and crossing them behind your head while breathing in and wearing a tight top is the perfect pose to create the illusion of lifted breasts. 

‘Ever noticed arms are often overhead in online pics? It acts like a natural lift for the ladies. Throw in some traditional posing (back arched, chest out, NO BREATHING), and bam, you’ve got an insta snap,’ she explained.

The trick is used by dozens of celebrities for their Instagram beach shots – including Kourtney Kardashian, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Bella Hadid and Lottie Moss.

Danae also suggests a second pose – where she crosses one arm and lifts the other up to make her breasts look lifted.

A third pose she suggests for an ‘instant boob job’ involves wearing a ‘super tight criss cross bikini top’.

In a lengthy Instagram caption she wrote: ‘Your TATAS getting you down? Well here’s how influencers always have ones that are perked right up!

‘My lady lumps have changed SO MUCH in the last two months. They got pretty huge for a while there.

‘And now they’re back to their more normal size: a lil small, and a lil smoosh. And that’s ok. Because tatas come in ALL SHAPES AND SIZES. And they change throughout our lives, or even just the month. Now with that lil speech done, here how’s INFLUENCERS POSE THEIRS: 

‘ARMS UP: Ever noticed arms are often overhead in online pics? It acts like a natural lift for the ladies. Throw in some traditional posing (back arched, chest out, NO BREATHING), and bam, you’ve got an insta snap.

Even supermodels aren't immune! Proving she knows how to pose, Bella Hadid also did the boob job trick while 'relaxing' by the pool

‘ARMS ACROSS: This pose comes straight out of sports illustrated. One arm acts like a push up by going across the chest. The other smooshes the gals together. Again add posing, and there we go! 

‘SUPER TIGHT ON TOP: Winning the award for the most uncomfy, this involves turning any bikini into a whole support smoosh system. It’s the same reason we saw loads of swim suits UPSIDE DOWN this season – the flipped bikini tops pull tatas into the middle and create this curvy effect.

‘What’s the point of all of this? Just to remind you that the online world is SO CURATED. And your bibbity bobbities are WONDERFUL, in whatever way they show up.’

The post quickly racked up thousands of comments with many praising Danae’s honesty.

‘Love this, always keeping it real,’ said one. 

‘This has been a major insecurity of mine, thanks so much Danae,’ another wrote

‘I really love what you are doing here. It is SO important to see. Even for me but also for all the young girls my daughters age struggling to live up to all those unreel pictures they sit and watch every day. Thank you,’ added a third.

‘Thank you for reminding me to love my body no matter what,’ a fourth commented.

While one user wrote: ‘Thank you Danae for this reminder! -and all your post. As a grown-up adult who knows her worth, I still struggle with my body image sometimes’.

Danae also suggests a second pose - where she crosses one arm and lifts the other up to make her breasts look lifted

Danae has gone viral before for sharing how influencers give ‘false ideas’ of how their bodies are.

In May, she slammed a photo editing app that allow influencers to shrink their waists and smooth their skin in seconds. 

In February, she posted a series of videos to Instagram showing her step-by-step guide to getting the perfect beach picture, and how influencers fake ‘looking relaxed’ in photos. 

While in March she revealed how videos can be edited to make someone look slimmer with just a few clicks of a button.
