Rachel Hollis, mum of 3 uploaded a picture of herself on a beach wearing bikini to her Facebook page to inspire mums flaunt their motherhood scars.
In no time, it had enjoyed over 300,000 likes, which she never bargained for. The reason for the incredible response is because of the powerful caption she gave the image, which was an inspirational message to mothers.
“I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini. I have a belly that’s permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy. . . (which is something I didn’t even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini.
“I wear a bikini because I’m proud of this body and every mark on it. Those marks prove that I was blessed enough to carry my babies and that flabby tummy means I worked hard to lose what weight I could.
“I wear a bikini because the only man who’s (sic) opinion matters knows what I went through to look this way. That same man says he’s never seen anything sexier than my body, marks and all.
“They aren’t scars ladies, they’re stripes and you’ve earned them. Flaunt that body with pride! #HollisHoliday.”
