Let’s talk about stretch marks.
Stretch marks are a funny old thing. Some people hate them, some people love them, but the truth is, they're totally normal and a gorgeous part of our bodies that represent so much more than a few little lines.
We’re all for embracing your stretch marks (or ‘tiger stripes’ as we like to call them). They’re a visible example to the world of just how fierce and incredible your body is and to be honest, we wouldn’t have it any other way. There are many and we mean many, reasons to love those little lines of yours and we're here to tell you exactly why.
Stretch marks usually appear after a drastic change in weight, whether you’ve gained weight or lost it. You can even get them from growth spurts when you were younger. A lot of women tend to have stretch marks on their bums, thighs, hips and even their boobs, but that’s all part of the process of blossoming into the gorgeous woman you are.
As normal as stretch marks are, many women (and men) are still self conscious about their gorgeous stripes. Whilst we can totally understand why this would be the case, it’s also a little sad. We’ve put together 10 reasons why you should embrace your stretch marks and love them in all of their stripey glory.
Okay, so you’ve gained a few pounds. Who cares? That doesn’t make you any less worthy. Besides, as long as you’re happy and healthy, that's all that matters. Losing weight isn't something to be ashamed about either as this can also prompt a few stretch marks to appear. Show your stripes, girls and leave your insecurities at the door.
Your body does a lot for you, let’s be honest. For example, childbirth. It’s not called a ‘miracle of life’ for no reason. Your body can literally grow, carry and birth another human - that’s pretty incredible to be honest. Stretch marks give way to new life. Surely that should be something to celebrate.
All of those twisty, curvy and pigmented lines are works of art. You should be embracing all that is you and loving every inch of it.
From pale pinks to greys, stretch marks are pretty cool. People even paint them with glitter and to be honest, we’re all here for it. You deserve to glow, girl.
Stretch marks show that your body can adapt. Whether you’ve gained weight, lost weight or you’re pregnant, your body can adapt to pretty much anything. Love your stretch marks for all that they are and all that they allow your body to be.
Please, girls…don’t fall into the trap of airbrushing your stretch marks because social media makes you feel like you have to. Embracing your stretch marks is important, so show them off. Be your own cheerleader and remember just how incredible you are. Also, remember to fill your feed with positive accounts.
