Dancing With The Stars pro Lindsay Arnold has put speculation to the test that she cut her c-section scar out of recent photos, calling the brand her “favorite part” of her body in a new Instagram post.
The 27-year-old ballroom dancer addressed the rumors and proudly revealed her belly scar in a sexy red swimsuit on Tuesday. While she usually did not give such “time of day” gossip, she felt it was necessary to remove any lingering stigma about scars.
“I think this needs to be addressed because it is important to me that you all know that my c-section scar is now my favorite part of my body,” the Utah-American wrote. “It is the representation of what I am most proud of in my life and that is our sweet sage.”

Lindsay said her discreet scar wasn’t even visible unless she pulled down her suit and said that was why you all don’t see it in my pictures.
Arnold made it clear that she was against editing her figure and told followers: “I would never have photoshopped any part of my body and wanted a special contribution to my beautiful scar that I really love so much.”
When she got the last word, she wrote, “So hahaha for those who care or even read that far, no, I don’t photograph my scar out of anything and in case someone forgets that women’s bodies are incredible.”
