I'm going to the beach next month and I can't find any swimsuits that works for me. I have stetch marks on my entire stomach and sides. I'm only 21 so I also want a suit that fits my age range. Where can I get a chic one piece?

  • I feel for you on this one! I'm having the same problem and I'm only 20 so I now how depressing it can be! It's even worse for me though I also have them on my thighs! I don't know where to get a good suit yet but I am looking, if I find a good place I'll let you know. Good Luck!

  • I had this problem too. First off I sell and LOVE the Anew Clinical Stretch Mark Smoother cream its made a huge difference in the color and texture of my stretch marks. I'd recommend it to anyone! You can get it at use code fsany for free shipping.
    Also there are lots of cute one piece suits if it bothers you. One with a halter top on it that is beaded or embellished will take attention away and are flattering. A two piece with a longer top would be good too. Try the cream you'll be happy with the results though! :)

  • Try Sears. They had really cute mix and match pieces last year!

  • The Victoria Secret ones are gorgeous! If you can afford to spend some real money on them, some of the 1 pieces or Tankini's are actually sexier than the bikinis. I looked online a week ago and fell in love, lol.

  • i would also suggest victorias secret , because their one peices are hot, and you dont even look like you might be trying to hide something. could also always go with a bikin, get a lil tan before you head to the beach, this will help hide stretch marks, and then wear a black see through, cover up..

  • okay, I am going to tell you something you will think is insane, false, and just plain untrue! If I hadn't experienced it first hand, I wouldn't believe me either. Those stretch marks? Yeah, SUNLIGHT helps! My MIL told me to slap on a bathing suit and go outside. I definitely thought she was off her rocker! But you know what, she was right!

    Basically, tanning is baking. Baking tightens the skin. Tightening the skin pulls the stretch marks smooth. Doesn't get rid of them completely but it certainly helps! And without costing a penny! Sunshine is FREE!
