Boohoo has been praised by thousands of people online for not Photoshopping out a models stretch marks.

A stunning model was pictured modelling an open-back yellow bodysuit, with the stretch marks on her bum and on her legs fully on show.

Obviously, this is amazing – because so often, we forget that, because of their utter beauty, models are just normal people.

And so Boohoo reminding us of this fact is something that should be celebrated.

Facebook user Cheryl Adele was spotted the photo and uploaded it to her page alongside the caption: I find this so amazing!

Growing up my stretch marks were my biggest insecurity. I tried every cream, oil & scrubbing technique but only one thing worked… accepting that they were mine & there for life⚡@boohoo You dont know how much this helps with acceptance ?????? #FridayFeeling pic.twitter.com/dGjScG8Lwr
