She has no problem showing off her bod, that’s for sure!

Lena Dunham went bikini shopping at Target and documented the whole thing on her Instagram, and she couldn’t resist showing off her new purchase… along with her belly scars! “When the Target swimsuit does a b*tch right. Endo scars and all,” she captioned the video on social media.

Endometriosis is a disorder that makes uterine tissue grow outside the uterus in other parts of the body. The Girls star has been open about living with the condition, and even had to cancel a press tour for her HBO show last year because of the debilitating pain.

“Out of tangible options, I started Lupron: monthly injections that shut down the production of estrogen and therefore the proliferation of endometrial cells where they shouldn’t be. It’s a temporary menopause of sorts, and while it solves certain issues, others pop up like whack-a-moles. I no longer felt a fist was unfurling in my uterus, but I did have zero ability to regulate my temperature, achy hip joints, and the emotional sensitivity of a drunk girl at prom. Life is a series of trade-offs, I suppose,” she wrote in a Lenny Letter recently.

We applaud her for being a normal chick!
