4 Bumps

I have stretch marks on my breasts...

I didn't have very big breasts before I was pregnant with my son, but while I was pregnant they grew 2 cup sizes, and have now come down to cup smaller, but I still have stretch marks. I have tried everything I can possibly think of and nothing has worked...any suggestions?

  • stretch marks don't go away, you can only lighten them. it sucks. I got them too. once they lighten you don't even notice though.

  • i have them on my inner thighs from working out. i don't mind the look of them cause there in a place only my fiance sees but i hate how they feel. it feels like my skin has shredded. aloe vera works pretty well but try some pure vitamin e oil on the skin plus vitamin e pills to help on the inside. they should be invisible in about 6 months

  • Stretch marks are actually the result of tearing the skin. Sometimes we grow faster than our skin can keep up with us. Thus, the tearing. Regardless of what ANY product professes, there is NOTHING that will put your skin back together. As the pp stated, they can only be lightened. Some creams help this process. Time alone will also lighten them.

  • AHHHH the joys of motherhood....Just one more scar along the way to show our stripes...literally LOL. They lighten up over time, they are scars so they're with you for life unless you get a boob lift or something. Every woman is different so unfortunately you can't really get advice on when they will lighten, I have some from years ago that still look fresh where as others are finally faded....its like the phrase to each their own. Almost all of the ones on my breasts faded first though if that is any help.

  • I do too! I had no idea you could even get them there, lol. Sorry, I really don't have an answer for you though - I still have mine. The marks have faded over time (it's been two years) but I really haven't done anything to try to get rid of them.
