Body positive model Robyn Lawley made headlines when she became one of the first plus-sized models to grace Vogue magazine covers around the world and now, the stunning mum is making headlines for posting this exquisite photo showing the world how proud she is to have earned her #tigerstripes!

The 26 year old model posted this photo in response to an article which claimed she was considering abortion to ensure she didn’t get stretch marks.

Robyn posted this message alongside this image on her Facebook page:

“someone else in UK had and the article was pulled. These gossip pages do everything to get a view but to not even write your true name is cowardly.

As for my stretch marks I knew they were coming and as they’re fading into white ( like all my others) I thought I might capture them. Because they are some bad ass ‪#‎tigerstripes‬. And I earned them.

We put an unbelievable amount of ridiculous time consuming pressure on women to care so much about their flaws they forget how truly beautiful they (you) are today.

F**k them, who cares, be you, be loud, be proud. And put your efforts into skills that rely more on your physical self.

And to anyone who feels bad about your body especially after a baby, you are a warrior, you created a life inside of you, that’s no easy feat.

It makes me mad seeing abortion discussed as a political agenda, women’s reproduction rights are in use for votes. I will always be pro choice. No one likes to get abortion but if your not prepared their should be no judgement into getting one.

Women’s rights should not be used so gimmicky and spoken about so poorly.

Right now there are millions of homeless children in America alone why don’t we focus on them? We often forget those women who do have a child because they couldn’t get access to an abortion because of state laws and no one is there for her when she’s denied health care or becomes homeless due to staggering costs or even has to change her entire career. It’s 2015 we have to urgently make women feel empowered by their bodies and minds. We should not be taking their rights and choices away.
I love my daughter, I also love my human rights.

Love to you all xx”

There should be many MORE mums who are proud of their #tigerstripes that showpart of our journey to motherhood.

  • She has an awesome post baby body, regardless of the stretch marks. I was lucky and didn’t get any during my pregnancies. Good for her for showing her true self, proving she’s a real person, unlike other celebs

  • Great attitude Robyn ! Personally I don’t think that stretch marks are ugly at all, just like wrinkles in the face they give you character. And indeed we can be thankful to have children !
