I love the practice of referring to stretch marks as tiger stripes. It just sounds so fierce.
I haven’t been pregnant yet – I have no children, but I do have stretch marks on my legs from when I hit puberty and my hips just blossomed like crazy.
So I’ve got these stretch marks on the outsides of my legs, and society tells us that’s something that you should hide: hide your stretch marks, hide your cellulite, hide any imperfections about your body.
But the thing is – the human body is nothing to be ashamed about. We’re all beautiful in our own ways, and all of this is just natural.
So I let my stretch marks shine, and hey – they’re tiger stripes.
