Chrissy Teigen Shows Off Her Stretch Marks With A Shrug
Chrissy Teigen has built a reputation as our go-to celeb for keeping it real. Whether she's Googling "how to breastfeed" or sitting down on the Golden Globes red carpet, the model is pretty much always serving up some much-needed, hilarious honesty. And her latest social media post is no exception.
Teigen posted a picture of her thighs on Twitter—showing that yes, there's evidence of stretch marks. (Or, you know, the light grooves most women encounter after undergoing a significant change in size—like weight gain, weight loss, pregnancy, or puberty.) And because this is Chrissy Teigen we're talking about, she would like to share with you her utter chill. "Whatevs," Teigen expertly captioned the photo. Teigen also made it clear (with her typical hilarious candor, of course) that she doesn't practice body positivity for the good press. "I do not post stretchies for the praise. I post it because the wine—also I like the pattern, and they're so soft," she tweeted.
Ever since giving birth to baby Luna last year, Teigen has been especially open about accepting the way her body has changed since getting pregnant and becoming a mother. So it's shouldn't be surprise anyone that Teigen doesn't mind having a few stretch marks here or there. Plus, this isn't the first time Teigen has displayed a refreshing attitude about the so-called "imperfection." She even joked about her stretch marks once, saying, "LOL my thighs have tributaries."
Thank you, Teigen, for reminding us all that we're perfect the way we are. Stretch marks are totally normal, fun, wonderful, and "whatevs." We're glad to have you reminding us of their beauty.
