By  - 7 years ago

Known for her flawless, fashion-forward photos, 23-year-old Filipina Instagram star, Lexi Mendiola, recently posted a one-piece swimsuit photo that showed off her tiger stripes—something she was once insecure about.

Her empowering photo was captioned,

“I was thinking thrice if I wanted to keep this photo or dump it in the bin…ONLY because of my tiger stripes. I caught myself right before tossing it and just could. not. believe. how I let myself get so insecure about something so natural!!! It’s taken me quite a while (23 yrs to be exact) but putting this out there to remind myself and everyone that it’s really nothing to get all worked up or feel weird about. here’s to learning to love the lines”

Her sincere body-positive post was well received by women all over the world.

Lexi then uploaded another photo saying she was overwhelmed by al the support she received.

It’s completely natural to have stretch marks, so there’s nothing to be ashamed of. Thank you for inspiring women to love their lines, Lexi! #GirlsSpeakUp
