Ladies with stretch marks, do you wear bikinis? If not, do you frown upon others who do?

I am 26, petite, and I have small a ring of stretch marks around my belly button and some on my thighs. I am going on vacation and would like to wear a bikini, but I don't want to look silly or gross. Thoughts?

  • I say if you got it, flaunt it and to hell with everyone else.
    Plus, you'll never see these people again, right. :)

  • Remember most women are too busy with their own body flaws to be concerned with yours

  • I'm too old to wear a bikini. But laugh at someone who has stretch marks and does, no, never.

    Go to Florida, that's nothing.

  • I don't wear a bikini but it has nothing to do with stretch marks and everything to do with my awesomely large belly. If you want to wear a bikini, wear one.

  • Oh hell! You'll show those Floridians up!

    I saw an elderly couple, he was wearing speedos, she was in a bikini. Cute as hell though if you like dark, saggy skin.
    On many occassions women wearing bikinis but are so huge, you can't see the bikini, but they're tanned! LOL

  • If I had a nice body, with stretch marks - I wouldn't mind wearing a bikini at all!

  • LOL, I said they were tanned because some people have a misconceived notion that if your tan, you look good, you crack me up!

  • My beach rule of thumb: Someone will always look better than you and someone will always look worse. SO DON'T STRESS! :D :D :D

  • Stretch marks are the last reason I wouldn't wear a bikini. I'm out there to have fun, not be made fun of or scare little kids.
