I have quite bad stretch marks although I have now lost most of the weight on my tummy. Im comfortable enough with my body in a bikini but im unsure if its ok to wear it at the beach! Stretchmarks are kinda yucky looking! Should i wear them with pride or wear a one piece in public?

definately what you feel comfortable with, i have 2-3 large incisions on my stomach and another 5 that are tiny. The reason why i say i have 2-3 large ones, is because i can't tell yet about how many c-section scars i have, i have 2 c-sections but they were going to go through the same incision if possible, and i seriously still can't see it clearly. I have lost 105 lbs and i still have about 60 lbs more to loose. however i don't feel comfortable showing my belly

If you are comfortable wear them with pride girl! Who cares if others don't like the sight of them. Maybe you will encorage other mothers not to be so self consious

Wear the bikini! I've seen some women wearing bathing suits they have no business wearing, I figure if they can wear it looking the way they do and be comfortable with themselves, then why can't I? Stretch marks are not "yucky looking", hairy fat guys in speedos are "yucky looking", lol!

Wear the bikini, I've found bio-oil worked really well on my stretch marks but i'm having a hard time losing those last few pounds......

Wear them with pride momma!!!!!!! Vitamine e oil works wonders on scars and stretch marks. They wont completly disappeare but they will be less noticable.

WEAR THEM WITH PRIDE!! lol I do! It's all what you're comfortable with... if you want to wear a bikini then wear one! You carried that precious lil one for 9 months and you have the "scars" to prove it... if men can come back from war and sport those scars why can't we?

I realized, in the last few days of my pregnancy, that I really was a lot more thin pre-pregnancy than I gave myself credit for. Gaining 53 pounds will definitely give you perspective!! If you are comfortable enough with your body to do it then I agree - rock that bikini! My aunt sweared by Udder Cream for her stretchmarks, and I've been using Burt's Bees Belly Butter (or something like that).

Honey, rock that bikini! There is nothing in this world like having good self-confidence and if someone doesn't like it they can not look...lol

if you are good with it I say rock the bikini!!! I wish i felt like i could. stretch marks are a sign of you bein able to grow a whole human in your body. I love my stretch marks. but they do fade after while. If you are worried bout them rub pure coconut butter on them and they will fade faster. but I say go for it girl. i am a bigger girl but you can bet that when I go to hawii next year i will at least once where a bikini there.
