It's never easy to bare your insecurities to the public, but it can become effortless with practice. Take Sarah Lahbati, for example. She went from hiding her post-pregnancy stretch marks to wearing them loudly and proudly on social media!
Swimsuit photos from Sarah's recent trip to El Nido in particular earned a lot of love from netizens, with many thanking the celebrity mom for flaunting her stretch marks. Read their sweet comments below!
In the photos, Sarah was clad in a green bikini, and the mid-rise cut of her bottoms put her stretch marks in display.
One netizen wrote, "Thanks for sharing your beautiful body, stretch marks and all! [emoji[ It carried two beautiful boys and yet, it still looks soooo good! This is such a mom inspiration [emoji] you go girl!"
"I love [the] normalisation of stretch marks. What a hot momma!" another user said.
Further along the comments section, we also spotted women and moms opening up about being inspired by Sarah to flaunt their own "tiger stripes". Aww!
Celebrities like Maxene Magalona, Maja Salvador, and Mariel Padilla couldn't help being wowed by the Sarah's beach bod, too. Mariel even wrote that she's "without a doubt [the] hottest mom of 2"! We can't say we disagree!
Last January, Sarah showed her stretch marks for the very first time on social media. She called them her "best tattoos," and a reminder of her journey to giving birth to her sons Zion and Kai.
"I'm tired of hiding my stretch-marks. I'm not perfect. No one is. What's funny is it took me awhile to accept that," she said.
"I'm grateful to be alive, to be loved, messy, and to be fully myself. Wouldn’t have it any other way. Took awhile for me to get here. But here I am. Proud. Cheers to all of you, women."
Keep doing what you're doing, Sarah!
