Perrie(little mix) has given me motivation to show off my scar on my stomach like she does. Always so insecure about it but I shouldn't be😫

When Perrie was asked about this scar, she revealed that when she was born her oesophagus was too small, so in order to eat properly she had to have multiple operations. This clearly is not an easy subject for her to speak out about, especially since she’s a public figure, so kudos to her for being so open!
In addition to posting photos revealing her scar, Perrie has worn multiple outfits that reveal it as well. We think it makes her look pretty badass!
Thank you to Perrie Edwards for showing us, once again, to love ourselves and our bodies. We are all beautiful and it’s fantastic to see Perrie reminding us of that.
