A reader sent me this link and I think that, despite the negative point of view of the website, it’s a really positive thing for us. Check it out and thanks to Danielle!

They are all so beautiful!!! What beautiful women! and the person who wrote the horrible comments under these photos is a moron!
I’m angry at the person who wrote the comments underneath the photos! How ridiculous. I have no children and no history of weight gain/loss, but I have stretch marks from puberty on my hips and breasts. It’s part of having skin. Men get them too, for crying out loud! My husband has them on his hips, and I’ve seen plenty of muscular, macho weight lifters at the gym with them on their arms.
i saw this when they posted it on their site, and it annoyed me about the comments they put and what come readers wrote, people need to realise that beauty isnt just a perfect toned body and no strech marks
It is wonderful to see that celebrities are just like us. The captions on the photos are crude but if you read the comments many people defended the women. At least on theshapeofamother.com we have the option of submitting our own pictures. I would be upset if someone snapped a shot of me and then publicly pointed out my flaws.
it’s nice to see that cindy crawford is as human as the rest of us
It’s just as much our faults for attributing an almost god-like status to celebrites. Did it never occur to people that celebrities are human beings too? I don’t understand why that’s so hard to comprehend. I happen to think that Cindy Crawford and Angelina Jolie are still sexy even if with the stretch marks on their tummies. I wish I could say that my stretch marks were limited to my tummy alone.
i m happy n relieved 2 know dat even seemingly flawless celebs have a girl’s most horrible nightmare.i too have stretch marks on my shoulders n was distraugt b4 i saw these.now i can flaunt my fav outfit without hesitation
Stretch marks get anyone, celebs or not. I got them and I hated them but I wasnt ashamed of them.
I was once told that the most amazing gift a women can give is the gift of life and that strech marks were the battle scares endured in order to achieve this gift. Thanks to all the women who gave that gift.
I really liked the Made from Earth Aloe & Jojoba Creme Therapy. I didn’t get any strech marks until the last few weeks of my pregnancy and I chalk that up to good genes more than anything.
Regardless though the product did keep me from itching my belly as much as my skin tightened and was moisturizing without being to greasy. I am still using the product three weeks after having my baby and the stretch marks seem to be fading away. I am now buying the product for my best friend who is pregnant. I would recommend the Made from Earth Aloe & Jojoba Therapy to everyone who is pregnant!
Plus my husband loved the smell of it too!!
i am 33 and a mother of 2 an i have sretch marks. I’m thin and in very good shape and to be honest with you it makes me feel better to know that celebrities do have stretch marks. I am so sick of men thinking that models are perfect and a woman with stretch marks are ugly. I am very insecure about them and its because of so many people think that its an ugly feature on a perosn when really its there shallowness!!!! Get a grip people!
I have two children and got covered in stretch marks!!A commercial for palmers cocoa butter calls a pregnancy without stretchmarks a beautiful one.Well,i’ve definitely have some body issues about my marks,but still,i know my pregnancies were beautiful because i was carrying life.Palmers has some good products,but using celebs to say ‘getting ugly stretch marks like these is not an option’…Wrong message palmers!!!
I think it’s horrible that people critisize people for their stretch marks when their just basically a form of life for nearly every woman! I’m only fourteen and I have them on my legs, hips and thighs! I am sick of them and hate the fact that all my friends can wear high waisted shorts and skirts and I can’t! But I’m not ashmamed, just paranoid.
Love your attitude, Katie. And you can totally rock the shorts!
