We can’t think of a better salve against the daily deluge of mom body-shaming than Ashley Graham.
The plus-size influencer’s most recent post is putting the spotlight on her postpartum skin. In a five-second clip posted last Friday, the industry game-changer zoomed in on her stretch marks and showed just how much she adores them by forming a heart around them with her hands.
Since becoming pregnant and giving birth to her son Isaac in January, Graham has made postpartum body positivity a focus on her social media accounts. She’s flaunted her stretch marks online with pride, calling them “new stories” in an Instagram post.
And she’s made them the centerpiece in a backyard photoshoot in August, when they were peeking out from her bikini.
For new moms who feel unhappy with their bodies, it’s certainly a pick-me-up to see that one of the world’s most accomplished models not only has stretch marks, but is happy to show them off to the world.
