We don’t talk about stretch marks much.

Generally, you are encouraged to just cover them up – or get them removed if you’re super-rich.

But one body-positive Instagrammer wanted to change that.

Kenzie Brenna shared a photo of her stretch marks, along with her thoughts about her body.

This part of the message stands out in particular:

Would it make you a better person if you got rid of these marks?


Would it make you kinder, more generous and a better lover if you had the money to erase them?


Then you're perfect.

Her inspiring post got over 22,000 likes.

British Instagrammer Isabella Mabey also proudly shared her stretch marks, along with her story of learning not to worry about them.

They are so normal! My family kept telling me they would fade and they did. They are still thick and visible but having stretch marks does not mean you are FAT. Stretch marks can appear where ever and whenever your body grows quickly and this can also occur when building muscle...

...Remember to love all your imperfections and embrace them. Tigers, wear your stripes proud! 

Well said ladies!
