It took a long time to accept my stretch-marks, but I have. I think they’re sexy, and my boyfriend does too. He says that it’s the sign that I’m a real woman. :)

These are my stretch marks. I used to really hate them. Like absolutely loathe. But since I’ve started loving myself, I started loving them too. I think the way they curl around my belly button is cute. I even like the texture. 
I’ve come a really long way and honestly I’m proud of myself.

For the first time in about five years, I’m going to wear a bikini this summer! (: I’m still insecure about my stretch marks, but I think it’s time that I start pushing myself to wear swim suits that I like instead of covering them up. I try not to let people’s faces and words hurt me when they see my stretch marks, but I’m still discouraged. Stretch marks are normal and I shouldn’t be ashamed. Happy summer everyone! (This is my second time submitting)

Love yourself. I do. I have basically every characteristic that society tells us to hate, but I really do love myself. I mean. Damn.

I’m 8 months pregnant with my third child. My stretch marks are from my first pregnancy and I am very proud of them <3 My kids are everything.

My hips are simply not meant for clothes, it seems. They won’t stay in. Oh well!
