SOUTHERN Charm star Kathryn Dennis has proudly showed off her stretch marks in an unedited photo after Khloe Kardashian's scandal.
The 29-year-old wrote to her fans about how she was "proud" to put her real body on display in the slinky gold bikini for an Instagram snap.
Mom-of-two Kathryn, who recently lost custody of her children Kensington, 7, and Saint, 5, looked stunning in the swimwear as she opted for a more natural look.
The star posed poolside for the unedited snap, that clearly displayed her naturally curvy figure and flat stomach with small stretch marks.
"Be proud of your stretch marks," she wrote in the caption of the snap, before adding that she "hopes to get more one day" to proudly show off.
Kathryn donned a fold bikini for the picture, which tied up around her waist to further accentuate her figure.
Fans were thrilled by the "real" and "authentic" snap, and took to the comments to praise the Bravo star for willingly posting it.
"Yes this is what we need to see on Instagram, no edited pics just the real authentic you," one woman wrote.
"Nice to see a celebrity that’s not ashamed of her unedited photos," another agreed. "Bravo to you and what a great example you are setting."
"Obsessed with this authenticity," a third said. "Please keep this going we all need more real inspiration like this! Thank you."
Even Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan took time to react to the post, writing "looking great mama" alongside a heart eyes emoji.
It comes as Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Khloe, 36, has been working tirelessly to scrub an unedited bikini snap from the internet.
The mom-of-one recently shared a series of cryptic quotes as her legal team continue to battle to have the image removed from the internet.
It all began when her grandmother MJ took an unfiltered photo of her posing in a leopard print bikini by the pool that was accidentally posted online.
While the reality star looked amazing, she appeared less flawless than she typically does in her glossy fashion shoots – something that confirmed fans suspicions that she Photoshops her snaps.
Amid the controversy, Khloe shared a quote on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday evening that read: "I crave space. It charges my batteries."
Khloe's crisis management team confirmed the reality star is "desperate to scrub the unedited bikini pic from the internet" in the ongoing saga.
Copies of the photo have been taken down under "legal threats" from the Kardashians' team, according to Page Six.
The Sun exclusively revealed that Khloe is worried that photo will "haunt" her for years to come.
Despite receiving an overwhelming number of positive comments about the image, sources say Khloe still sees herself as the “fat sister” and is desperate for it to go away.
Southern Charm's Kathryn seems less bothered about her imperfections being out on the internet, as she has bigger things to worry about: losing the custody of her kids.
Her ex-boyfriend Thomas Ravenel filed for sole custody of the children in October 2020 and requested Kathryn have supervised visitation with them.
The Sun exclusively revealed Kathryn temporarily lost custody and now has supervised visitation every other weekend.
The Sun broke Thomas’ request to change their custody agreement from joint to primary custody, as he cited Kathryn’s alleged drug abuse and neglect.
Kathryn, agreeing to take a drugs test, alleged in her court response: “I do not use cocaine so naturally I have not left any out for our children to access.”
