A lot of women feel ashamed about their bodies, especially if they have some perceived or real imperfections that make them want to hide these parts forever.

Many would even opt to have these imperfections corrected via cosmetic surgery but there are also those who have learned to love their own bodies and have gained confidence in flaunting their flaws as these merely part of their person.

Rachel Hollis belongs to the latter group of women. She loves her own body – flabby tummy, sagging belly button, stretch marks, and all! This is also the reason why her bikini photo went viral.

During a holiday with her family at the beach, she wore a bikini despite this surely going to show her flaws. She did not mind because every flaw in her body has a story to tell. She knows that her husband loves her, even with her imperfect body.

Despite her flaws, Rachel looks stunning in her bikini

I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini. I have a belly that’s permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy… (which is something I didn’t even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini. I wear a bikini because I’m proud of this body and every mark on it. Those marks prove that I was blessed enough to carry my babies and that flabby tummy means I worked hard to lose what weight I could. I wear a bikini because the only man who’s opinion matters knows what I went through to look this way. That same man says he’s never seen anything sexier than my body, marks and all. They aren’t scars ladies, they’re stripes and you’ve earned them. Flaunt that body with pride! #HollisHoliday

Rachel’s post quickly went viral, with plenty of moms also sharing their photos as well. With her simply bikini shot, Rachel was able to empower women. Kudos!
