Kourtney Kardashian praised for proudly showing off stretch marks
The KUWTK star becomes a surprising body image hero!
The Kardashian-Jenner sisters are known for their picture-perfect Instagram snaps but big sis Kourtney has delighted fans by keeping it real during her recent Italian getaway.
With her sisters often called out for being overzealous with Photoshop, mum-of-three Kourtney, 40, took a refreshingly real approach when she posted an unedited picture of herself in a sexy black swimsuit aboard a luxury yacht on the Instagram account for her lifestyle blog, POOSH.
Fans were quick to spot Kourtney’s stretch marks on her upper left thigh, praising the Keeping Up With The Kardashiansstar – who shares three kids Mason, 9, Penelope, 7, and Reign, 4, with ex Scott Disick - for not airbrushing them out.

“Thank you so much for not editing out your stretch marks!!” one fan declared not long after she shared the photo.
Natural beauty Kourtney responded: “I love my little stripes” with a smiley face emoji.
Other fans claimed the Poosh founder's honesty helped them embrace their own body imperfections.
“Those stretch marks are giving me life & helping me embrace mine. So gorg,” one fan wrote underneath Kourtney’s picture.
“Stretch marks! On a Kardashian!! Oh this is one reason you’re my fave!” one happy fan said.
Kourtney’s candid snap comes after little sister Kylie Jenner hit the headlines for the wrong reasons during a recent girls’ trip to the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The cosmetics mogul was accused of photoshopping and distorting her best pal Anastasia "Stassie" Karanikolaou thighs as they posed together in sexy dresses.
