After having children do you still wear bikini's?

I have lost all of my pregnancy weight from both my children. I also have a lot of stretch marks so therefore I will not wear anything showing off my tummy! But I also have stretch marks (a few) on my thighs. Would you were a tankini?

  • I still wear bikinis. I have 3 boys..the youngest 8 months. I never got any stretch marks on my belly and very little on my thighs. Even my doctors would say how "lucky" i was..but I contribute that to my mother's genes. She never had any either and both of us lost our pregnancy weight quickly.

  • Oh how I miss bikinis! I lost all my pregnancy weight only 5 months after my first and was back to my normal weight of 110 so I was skinny enough for them, but never again b/c I have soooooooooooo many nasty stretch marks. I even don't really like tankins b/c I also have stretch marks on my thighs, but I'll wear those. I only go swimming many 2 or 3 times a year now, which before kids, I would be at the lake all summer long.

  • I still wear bikinis and I have stretch marks. I've told my husband he better tell me if I don't look good in a bikini and he still says I do. I've seen a 350 pound woman in a bikini before so I don't feel bad.

  • nope but i would if i could! i wear tankini's. they make some really cute ones. i really dont think i'd ever be comfortable in a bikini again being i dont just lay out like i used to do. with kids and hubby im always moving so i want to be comfortable. also, life is too short to worry about what people think anyway. when i do see a bigger girl in a swimsuit i think "Rock on Girl"!!

  • I hope to one day!! I haven't wore a bikini since I was about 12, I have always been self-conscious, but when I got into my teens I got 2 kids later in my 30's I am working on losing about 100 pounds. So maybe next year!
