To Mom's who got stretch marks during pregnancy..

Are you comfortable wearing a 2 piece bathing suit? Have you used anything to minimize them? I have a little bit on my tummy and I'm cause I feel like I will never be able to get into a 2 piece again.

  • I do not feel comfortable wearing a bikini anymore. My stomach has extra skin and you can see where the stretch marks were. I will wear a two-piece, but it's a tankini, not a bikini. And then I have numerous one-pieces too. I felt much more comfortable in those now.

  • Im comfortable in one only when i bring my baby with me to the pool. I dont just have stretch marks and extra fat for no reason, I have a baby to show for it!

  • I sell Avon and started using the Anew Clinical Stretch Mark Smoother about six or so months ago and they've faded down to pretty much invisible so this is my first summer in five years that I haven't been embarrased to wear a two piece! If you're interested in trying a bottle its on sale www.youravon.com/dhullum use code fsany for free shipping :) For me I like the two piece ones with the little skirts. I bought one at Old Navy and another at Macy's and they don't look grandma at all but cover you up a little more if you're self concious!
