Body confidence coach and popular Instagrammer Michelle Elman posted a startling photo Tuesday, in which she revealed that while even though she's not pregnant, she wears maternity clothes. Turns out, she had a number of painful scars on her stomach, which for years had meant she could only wear leggings. Eventually, it dawned on her that maternity jeans might help--and it did. Elman says, "Ignore all labels, whether it's which section of the store that you go to or the number on the label, it doesn't dictate your worth."
