Model Chrissy Teigan sparked the Instagram trend with a picture of her own stretch marks

The model and food blogger spends her days either posting pictures of mouthwatering dishes she cooks with husband John Legend or dishing out some of the sassiest one-liners we’ve ever heard on Twitter.

Few days ago, the Sports Illustrated model posted a seemingly innocuous picture of her legs on Instagram with the caption: “Bruises from bumping kitchen drawer handles for a week. Stretchies say hi!”

Chrissy was inundated with comments from women thanking her for posting the picture and celebrating the fact that yes, all people get stretch marks – even lingerie models.

Her candid snap has sparked a new hashtag #LoveYourLines, with women all around the world sharing pictures of their own stretch marks and the stories behind them.

Stretch Marks usually start out red or purple and gradually fade to become silvery-white and are generally found on hips, thighs, bums, stomachs and breasts.

These are  few comments with the #loveyourlines from Yahoo!
Proof that you did something really monumental.

am really impressed about this article because a lot of ladies shy away from showing their body because of their lines
