I had a c-section with my son 5 months ago. So from the scar that it left and my stretch marks it's almost embarrassing. I don't know if I should continue to wear maternity swimsuits or go in a bikini. What do ya'll do?

THOSE ARE YOUR BATTLE WOUNDS AS A MOTHER. YOU WEAR THOSE LIKE THEYRE YOUR STRIPES. I Understan the embarassment, I have attrocious stretch marks some 1/2 inches thick or even thicker in width. I dont know what I would do cause im 5`2 175lbs so i would personally cause my weight wear swin shorts and a spaghetti like tshirt bathing suit top. I wish you the best.

i wear little skirts with a tankini kind of top, covers the stretch marks, and since it has a little skirt its still young and cute! =]

Is a tankini an option? I wear those quite a bit, coverage of a one piece but easy like a bikini.

hey Kassie, i'd just wear whatever you feel the most comfortable in. I wear my bikini with a creamy colored netty type top over top. (its sort of see through but not enough to be able to see my stretch marks lol)
