Summer is coming, which means it's time to nail Instagram posing just in time for your holiday snaps.

Getting your Instagram pose right is pretty much 99.9% of the perfect picture. You might opt for the "Strandid" or even the "Shmile", but are you ready for the Bambi?

This summer, everyone's going to be doing the Bambi pose on Instagram and it's already started. It's not exactly new, you've probably seen your favourite Instagram influencer take to the Bambi before. Because sometimes the traditional peace sign pose won't cut it.


The Bambi is pretty much exactly as it sounds. You need to squat down on the floor with your thighs over your calves. Like, a deer from a Disney movie, basically...

It looks great with swimwear on the beach or poolside, but the Bambi truly has no limits. You can wear any clothes you'd like for this versatile move, as long as you have a flat surface to strike a pose you're ready.

Still unsure? Well, here's some perfect examples.
