Needless to say, her nearly two million Instagram followers started commenting on the 29-year-old supermodel's candid image. "Love it! Real women have stretch marks #respect," one follower wrote.

Another commenter shared the sentiment, adding: "Wow thank you for this, you've have boosted my self-esteem Love you @chrissyteigen #SouthAfrica."

Teigen seems to have no shame when it comes to baring all of her body, marks and all. Back in February, she shared a topless shot of her self with the caption: "Tried to think of something witty but basically just painting myself in makeup and wearing granny panties."

Teigen has also been candid about how she was fired from a Forever 21 modeling job for not being thin enough. "I showed up on set and they asked me if they could take a photo," she told DuJour magazine this past summer. "And they shoot that photo off to my agency, who then calls me as I'm sitting in the make-up chair, and they say, 'You need to leave right now. They just said that you are fat and you need to get your measurements taken."
