Can we talk about this photo for a second? I found it while I was browsing on Buzzfeed, and it really stuck out to me. She has visible stretch marks. She is an Olympic athlete (Lauren Ludwing of Germany), a seriously kick-ass human being, and she has stretch marks just like the rest of us. And she isn’t covering them up with makeup, or wearing a bigger bikini bottom. Because stretch marks are nothing to be ashamed of. She has an absolutely killer body, that she worked hard to earn. This just proves that stretch marks are so unbelievably common, and absolutely not something to be ashamed of.
