Model Mom Embraces Stretch Marks To Inspire Others | SHAKE MY BEAUTY

A DETERMINED mother has launched an online campaign to inspire women to embrace their stretch marks. Striving to be a swimsuit model all her life, Talmesha Jones, from San Antonio, Texas, struggled to accept her post-baby stretch marks when she gave birth to her only son, Chase, five years ago. Talmesha’s confidence was at an all-time low – often receiving abuse online, she would refuse to look at herself in the mirror. But when best friend, Johnathan Benton, convinced her to take part in a photo-shoot for the first time since giving birth, Talmesha decided enough was enough and that her stretch marks actually made her unique and special. Talmesha, 27, then launched the popular Instagram hashtag, ‘Tiger Stripes On A Tuesday’ – challenging the stigma attached to stretch marks and encouraging women from around the world to post pictures of their post-baby bodies.

    Lol she's trying to break a stigma but gets offended when someone who hasn't seen them before asks what they are. So ironic

    She looks okay but I think women should do natural births instead of c sections.

    The stretch marks don’t look weird. The tum does on her as she is sooooo slim. I suspect in 3 months. She will be slim . She has the genetics

    She looks great! And stretch marks are apart of motherhood and just life in general! She is a real person and that's what makes her beautiful! Stay confident girl and hopefully other young women will follow your positivity…♥

    Thats a nice thing to say, but if you could get rid of it, why not. It doesnt define who you are. None of the physical attributes do

    My mother, after having three kids, doesn't have any stretch marks at all. she went from a size 3 to a size 13. Her skin is amazingly soft, no sag at all. I have 0 kids and am a size 3,like she was, but i have stretch marks 😒. I'm used to mine now though

    Why are they calling them tiger stripes? No! they are what they are….stretch marks. You're trying to put a pretty name on something that is not pretty. It's great that she is comfortable in her skin. She is a beautiful woman and yes It is very empowering what a woman's body does to carry a baby. But to try to make stretch marks a thing? Why? People will do and show anything for their 15m of Fame.

    Why don’t any of the Kardashian’s have stretch marks or loose skin on the tummy? How do they do it?

    I admire this cause we shrink after we give birth in certain areas especially our stomachs and there is nothing we can do about it apart from have a surgery to make it different.I too have a son he is seven and I have a beautiful body but my stomach is exactly like hers.I use to be ashamed and hide it but now I embrace it.Kudos to her and I guess I will go to the beach with a bikini now

    I think why some people hate stretchmarks is because they think that it looks ugly?

    I have stretch marks from being on life support in a coma because all my organs shut down and they were pumping me full of fluids and antibiotics. There was no where for all the fluids to go because my kidneys were in full failure so my body swelled to more than twice it's size in a matter of weeks (I was pretty small to begin with). Now, I have a lot of stretch marks from the skin expanding so rapidly. Kinda sucks.
