Mom described her stretch marks as glitter stripes,

We’re ready to make this a trend.

Teaching your kids to be body-positive can be difficult when you’re still training yourself to stop listening to the fat-shaming voice that most women have programmed in their brains. Luckily, Allison Kimmey, a mom and body-positivity advocate, has shown us how it’s done after she told her daughter that her stretch marks are called “glitter stripes,” and that they’re something a woman earns with age.


Imagine a world full of kids like Cambelle who grow up into adults who believe — scratch that — know that “every body is a good body!” We could live in a wonderful land of self-love and lots and lots of pizza.
