We love seeing famous moms comfortable in their natural skin. We also love it when other people love it. To that end: Fans reacted to a photo of Kourtney Kardashian’s stretch marks on Instagram and there was — surprise! — nothing but positivity. The reality star and mom of three posed on a boat in a revealing swimsuit, with her stretch marks totally visible, and the post was flooded by supportive comments from followers.
The photo in question was posted on Poosh’s Instagram account yesterday and since has garnered more than 75,000 likes and a slew of comments embracing Kardashian’s choice to not airbrush the photo of her body. And really? There was no need, because frankly, Kardashian looking amazing in an all black cut-out swimsuit, sunglasses and a hat. The best part: fans took notice.
“Thank you so much for not editing out your stretch marks,” wrote one user followed by a heart emoji and clapping emoji. “I love when we get to see stretch marks..normal bodies,” another fan wrote. One fan was really supportive and also recalled that the Kardashians have previously air-brushed their photos: “Oh wow not air brushed. You can actually see her stretch marks and this is what a real body looks like! I love it.”
Kardashian, who shares her three children, son Mason, 9, daughter Penelope, 7, and son Reign, 4, with former partner Scott Disick, even took the time respond to one of the positive comments, writing, “I love my little stripes” followed by a smiley face emoji. We love seeing the eldest Kardashian sister embrace her natural body — now let’s hope the post encourages other women — especially other mamas — to show off their “little stripes” with pride, too.
