I think if you are comfortable in it then go for it. I think any woman should dress as they feel comfortable regardless of stretch marks or what ever else. We are too brainwashed of how bodies are supposed to look. We see these Hollywood people with perfect bodies and think we have to measure up. The problem is not all of us can afford to have personal trainers, nutritionist and personal chefs 24/7 like the Hollywood people. We're real people with real lives and real kids and real bodies and yes, real stretch marks.

I don't really have any. I do have a bit of a ponch that is just skin that stretched out, I guess. I wear a bikini because that kind of swimsuit suits my figure way better than a one piece. If you have boobs and a smallish waist, in a one piece it kind of ends up looking like one tube.

I say wear the suit that fits your figure best and screw the stretch marks. Hell, some people have them and they've never even had a kid.

personally I wasn't too comfortable going out in anything too revealing before and I'd be even less comfortable now. I love my kids and they're worth all the stretch marks and scars but I wouldn't go showing them to the world. But if other people are comfortable showing them it doesn't bother me. They're well earnt and nothing to be ashamed of.

I was lucky to only get a few with my daughter and this time at currently 34 weeks im working on the new ones popping up.. I was on the gold coast in Jan and quite proudly wore a bikini at 20 weeks pregnant.. If I got looks off of people i sure didn't notice.

If it was just stretch marks, I would totally wear a bikini! But alas, I gained 60+ lbs the first time I got preg and now my belly has a whole bunch of skin that serves no purpose lol. So until I can get a tummy tuck, I'm sticking to tankini's and cute one-pieces.

I've got stretch marks and I wear a bikini. Of course, the winter holidays were a little bad for my hips and thighs, so I've got a little work to do before I hit the beach lol Ultimately, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks or says. If you're comfortable showing your stretch marks in a 2 piece, then go right ahead.

I personally need something more like a burka. No body wants to see mine. lol I say you should go for it. You worked hard on those stretch marks and now you have your little bundle of proof to show for it. {:+)
