After pregnancy do the stretchmarks go away?

Like once your stomach goes down do they look less noticeable or do they stretch further up your stomach when it's flat again. I'm afraid I won't be able to wear bikini's anymore or wear certain clothes because of this.

  • They fade a bit.... but everyone's body is different.

    I gained 60 lbs and have no strech marks. My gf gained 20 and has horrid marks. Best to ask your mom how hers were.

  • I have little left and I had twins. I applied cocoa butter you can find it anywhere. Just apply twice a day and it really does help.
