Actualmente es común ver en redes sociales mujeres perfectas con cuerpos delgados en todas las portadas incluyendo publicaciones de moda populares.
“Infinidad de selfies añadiendo filtros, asi es como en la sociedad se van formando ciertos estereotipos de cómo debe verse el cuerpo de una mujer”
Dos madres muy creativas decidieron ponerle fin a esta injusticia totalitaria en el mundo y crearon una cuenta de Instagram con el nombre de Love Your Lines (Ama tus lines), el cual se ha convertido muy popular en las redes sociales. La idea llegó a la cabeza de estas mujeres después de haber notado los cambios que sufren su cuerpo al dar a luz.
“Esta nueva tendencia esta dirigida a hacer que las mujeres amen su cuerpo, con las medidas que tengan y en cualquier estado en el que se encuentre su piel”
La cuenta de Instagram adquirió popularidad entre mujeres americanas y comenzaron a mandar a las fundadoras sus fotografías. En Soy Carmín te enseñamos algunas de ellas:
Esta fue la fotografía con la que todo comenzó... y lo que animó a muchas mujeres a mostrarse al mundo justo de la manera en que son. ¡Bellas!
Algunas mujeres desean permanecer en el anonimato, sin exponer su rostro.
"I remember getting my first stretch marks on my hips in 7th grade and becoming insecure bc no one that I knew, had them. Even changing in the locker room I would change my shorts super quick bc I felt they'd be noticed when realistically no one was even paying attention to me. Not even my mom who had 2 kids had stretch marks so it was something I just suppressed and at that time "knew" it made me less than. My weight's always fluctuated throughout my life so I'm pretty sure that's how they came about. I started modeling at about 19 which I thought was impossible bc of my lines. Now I'm 23 and within the last few years I've finally accepted my stretchies aren't going anywhere, but still get that good old familiar feeling of self-consciousness from time to time. They now cover my butt, hips, and are continuing to spread down my outer thighs. Since most of my modeling photos I post are photoshopped, I do feel the need to share some realness considering there are young girls out there that think girls who model don't have "flaws." I'm thankful for my lines these days bc honestly, I feel they humble me and keep me grounded in a sense. Plus they allow me to relate to my fellow women especially who feel the need to be perfect always in this superficial society. We are how we're supposed to be in this life." submission from: @santinihoudini
"I’ve been a part of “team thunder thighs" for quite some time, all thanks to 20 years of soccer. As I continued playing, the muscles in my legs began to grow larger - and so did the stretch marks. I used to rub endless amounts of cocoa butter and vaseline on myself, just hoping to diminish their appearance. It took a few years until it hit me that these lines are here to stay. When I look at my stretch marks now, I’m no longer ashamed or embarrassed. I am reminded that after all the years of blood, sweat, and tears I put into the sport I love, I have earned my ‘stripes', so I will wear them proudly and with love. submission via: @monticocj
Otras al contrario, no tienen ni una gota de pena por mostrar sus lineas a lo largo del cuerpo.
"This is the first time I've publicly shown the world I have stretchmarks and it has been such a liberating experience. I'm a slim girl with no boobs, no bum and no kids (so no-one believed I could have stretch marks) but developed them when I was around 16. I have always been terribly insecure and would always wear shorts on the beach and round the pool but this holiday I took them off and guess what? The world didn't end." submission from: @tamikaka
"I cry when I look at this picture because it brings so much emotion to me. I hate my body & the way it looks because of course I don't have that beach bod or that tight skin that doesn't have any mark on it. But Then I look at Emma and all I feel is my heart flutter with love. I realize because of those marks, those lines. I have the biggest blessing God has ever given me. Someone I wanted & Loved from day one. She is the light of my eye. The reason my days feel complete. I love being a Mom to My Princess 24/7 & no matter how tired or sick I am, I will take care of you with a smile on my face. You make me whole. Today you turn 7 months, So may God bless you today, tomorrow & everyday after that. You are my life, You are my heart walking outside my body. I love you & thank you for helping me understand that there is beauty in my lines. Mommy loves you Emma." #loveyourlines submission via @mrs_gil
