The Kardashians don't exactly have a reputation for sporting a natural appearance. Whether it's retouching their selfies, using body makeup, or having a bit of filler here and there - the famous family aren't really known for embracing their natural selves.
But, amidst all the backlash surrounding their persistent use of photoshop and plastic surgery rumors, in a refreshing turn of events, it looks like the Kardashians have hit the headlines for something positive. And it's courtesy of Kourtney Kardashian.
The eldest sister of the Kardashian clan has received praise after posting an image to Instagram showing off her stretch marks, and we honestly couldn't be happier.

The Kardashians aren't really known for embracing their natural selves.
Their appearance is constantly changing.
via: GettyYou only have to blink and their lips will suddenly be fuller and their bodies have been sculpted into a whole other shape (some body parts more than others).
As one of the most famous families of our generation, they are constantly scrutinized.
And though they may have been on our screens for more than a decade, with the rise of social media, they can offer us a filtered version of themselves.
They aren't strangers to cosmetic enhancements.
And this has landed them in the headlines on many occasions.It kind of feels like all they're known for now.
Because they just aren't honest about it.
Or the fact that no one believes that Kim's butt is real.
Oh, and we can't forget about photoshop, can we?The family has been "caught out" using photoshop in their social media images several times. In fact, their attempt to retouch their snaps has been subject to ridicule from the internet for simply how obvious it is.
Kim looks barely recognizable in this pic...
Remember this major photoshop error?

Whether they like it or not, they have an impact on their young fans.
And everyone all of a sudden became obsessed with doing squats.
It's clear that whatever work they get done seems to spark a trend online.
And this often lands them in bad press.Let's be honest, when was the last time you saw a positive headline about a Kardashian?
It's usually one controversy after another in Kardashian-land.One nude photo here, another photoshop fail there, and perhaps the odd nose job later, social media seems to bring zero positivity to the family.
But, refreshingly, one member of the Kardashian clan has managed to hit the headlines for a positive reason.
via: GettyThe oldest sibling, Kourtney Kardashian, has been receiving a lot of praise for a snap that she just posted to Instagram.
We aren't entirely surprised that Kourtney is the one to break the family's string of bad press.The forty-year-old has remained as the least problematic, usually steering clear of the drama.
She's also a fan favorite.From her relatable resting-bitch face to hilarious one-liners, Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans have hailed the star as a bit of an internet meme.
We can't forget this iconic moment.
via: E!Ah, we remember it well.
She's been pretty candid about her personal issues in the past.
And now the star is getting candid online.
Kourtney is a mom of 3...
She's been vacay-ing in Italy with her family this week, and it looks like she's promoting a bit of body positivity while she's there...
Here's the pic:
The post immediately drew in praise.
via: InstagramFans were so impressed with Kourtney for choosing to embrace her stretch marks that her comments were full of people thanking her for it.
After seeing the positive comments, the star responded in the best way...
via: InstagramKourtney replied to one fan writing, "I love my little stripes." We're so pleased to hear that she's embracing her natural bod.
It's quite a powerful statement.
And the internet certainly seems to agree.
via: InstagramPeople were literally overjoyed by the snap, with one user writing: "Yaaass... she’s normal she has stretch marks! Thank you for being real and not flawless."
Let's hope that this is the first of many untouched posts from the star...
via: GettyWhen it comes to breaking the Kardashian-mould, Kourtney isn't the only one. Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that Kim Kardashian is training to be a lawyer. Yes, you read that right. But when the star turned up to one of her law exams, everyone said the same thing...
