Local actress and singer, Rami Chuene, who is best known for playing the role of Gracious Mabuza in Mzansi Magic soapie drama The Queen, has learnt to embrace her stretch marks.
Rami took to Instgaram where she posted her picture wearing red underwear. She shared how she used to hate her stretch marks, and that led to her not wearing Bikinis and even tops that will slightly show her tummy.
However, The Queen actress has now let go of the hate and she has accepted and embraced her stretch marks.
“I used to hate my stretch marks and didn’t wear bikinis at all. In fact, anything that would slightly show my tummy was a no-no. Even in my boldness I lost confidence, I became unsure and very unhappy. I got to realize that I have one body and I needed to love it and honor it. The day I accepted and embraced my stretch marks is the day I realized I carried a body of art that tells a beautiful story. I walk in confidence and in love (sic)” – Rami said.
Call me ‘Babes wa di stretchmarks mo ma side-ng!’ Women are constantly required to reach unattainable beauty standards but there’s no need because YOU as a woman, are THE ultimate beauty standard! Embrace your true-self and find the perfect fit,” – she added.
