A Guide to Loving Your Stretch Marks

Do you have stretch marks? How do you feel about them?

Our society’s ridiculous expectations of appearance make many people view their stretch marks as a source of shame. So if “love” isn’t exactly what you’re feeling for your stretch marks, we understand.

And we hope this comic can help you find some acceptance.

If you’re feeling ashamed of your stretch marks and you’d like to try a different perspective, these affirming reminders can show you why these marks don’t make you or your body any less valuable – no matter who you are.

With Love,
The Editors at Everyday Feminism
