Girl, wear that bikini & wear it proud!!! Your body did exactly what it was designed for and yes we get a few battle wounds..lol..but there is no reason you can't wear that bikini. My body is a little thicker since having kids but that doesn't stop me. And stretch marks fade over time. You can help it along some with Bio Oil(my friends swear by it). I have always used straight cocoa butter which helps too.

Who said you cant wear a bikini cause you have stretch marks? You grew a baby in your tummy, you gave life to that baby. Consider it battle scares and embrace your bikini body. I was scared at first to wear one, but got tired of wearing a one piece, so one day I put my bikini on, if someone has a issue with my body, sucks for them, cause Im damn sexy in my bikini, lol.

Don't worry, they may look horrid right now but they do fade away to your natural skin colour. Just keep using whatever lotion you were using while you were pregnant and they should fade within 9 months or so (I don't remember, I got so tired of checking often and just noticed one day that they weren't noticeable anymore.). Besides, I look at them as a badge of honor, I grew life inside of me; May as well embrace them, they're there! Your bikini days are not behind you!
