    Kourtney Kardashian Shares What She Thought About The Positive Reactions To Her Unedited Stretch Marks Picture In A New Interview

    "I like them!"

    The Kardashian-Jenner sisters are known for projecting flawlessness on social media. Just looking at any of their Instagrams can make anyone feel a tiny bit jealous.

    Back in August, Kourtney shared a picture of herself on her lifestyle brand Poosh's Instagram account, taken on vacation. Kourtney looks like her usual flawless self, but fans quickly noticed that this picture shows off her stretch marks.

    It received tons of positive comments from women admiring her for embracing her stretch marks, and inadvertently encouraging others to feel positively about their bodies.

    Kourtney responded to one of the many comments, saying "I love my little stripes."

    In an interview with Health that was published on Monday, Kourtney was asked if she was surprised by the positive reaction she got from the picture. She responded that she was, and said, "I’ve had stretch marks since eighth or ninth grade on the side of my booty. I never cared about them—I like them!"

    She also said in a recent interview with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's lifestyle site Rose Inc. that she feels most desirable "naked – tiger stripes and all."

    Most women have stretch marks, no matter the body type. But we often see celebrities and influencers photoshop their pictures to hide them. Kourtney might think her stretch marks are no big deal, but seeing someone like her embrace them helps so many – including myself – feel better about their own.

    So please, listen to Kourtney and live your best life with your "tiger stripes"!
