Little Mix star shares courageous image on Instagram despite haters

Little Mix star Perrie Edwards (and ex-fiancee of Zayn) has shared her own insecurites on her Instagram in a hope to encourage people to embrace their bodies and be proud of who they are, scars and all.

A while ago, Perrie opened up to a magazine about the scar that runs all the way down her stomach and how she never wanted to show it. "When I was little, my oesophagus was too small, so I had to get it operated on to help me eat properly," she explained. "I had to have lots of operations, so that's why I don't want to show it."

But now that she has shown her scar in a recent Instagram photo, she's being praised for spreading body positivity and encouraging fans to embrace their own imperfections.
