Just when you thought that trends like the itty bitty sunglass and multi-color hair dye looks hadn’t left any room for more summer goals, chicas of Instagram have one more audaz y hermoso look for you to get addicted to. This time, however, instead of running up a bill at your favorite online shop, all you’ll need is to strip and rock some swimwear. That’s right, mi gente, in the year of our Lord 2018, stretch marks are finally being appreciated as a trait to be flaunted and this summer it’s time to put yours on exhibit.
Here are seven pics to prove that owning your stretch marks this summer aren’t for girls who are trying to “be brave” or join in on a trend, but for real women happy to be carefree and stylin’.
1. Estrías on hype for the best high-waisted look of the summer.

5. Marks which are ready for you day or night.
Today, on my 32nd birthday I feel more confident than ever. I never understood why people were so afraid of getting older. Age is an opportunity to evolve and become better! I’m so proud of one of my favorite brands @ThirdLove who are launching 24 new sizes today. What I love is that they believe your size is your size and while I have no issue with being called plus size, this is a step in the right direction. No better birthday gift than to see brands like @ThirdLove innovate and create for all shapes and sizes. #myshapemysize #thisismysize #nowrongway

Still, if you’re not out shopping for some lingerie that’ll highlight just how sexy your stretch marks are, then take a tip from Denise and add something silky and colorful for your nighttime wear to your check out cart.

You really can’t lose with an Instagram pic that shows of your melanin AND your stripes while you’re chilling poolside. Still, do your colors and stripes justice by ditching the filter por favor 🙏 we wanna see those marks in their full glory.

If the Instagram bikini pics of the summer have proved anything it’s that vertical stripes are totally in. The next time you head to the beach, avoid any instincts you might have to buckle under societal pressure and go full on with your display with a high slit or thong bikini bottom. TRUST you will not regret your choice. Do it for the gram!

A wise man once said, “show me somethin’ natural like ass with some stretch mark” and Latinas of Instagram are on it, so get to get!
