Has anyone

had stretch marks and loose skin after pregnancy and then toned their stomach really well? I am a smaller built person and I have tons of stretch marks because I was little and my baby was big, lol, but I was wondering if I tone my stomach will that loose skin disappear, some of the stretch marks have but I think I'm doomed to have them forever. I'm supposed to go to the beach in a couple months and I've only worn bikinis because I can't find whole pieces that fit, the boobs are too small but the butt fits or the boobs are big enough but the butt is really loose haha. Anyway I don't want anything hanging out it what i'm trying to say and I've tried on tankinis but i don't really like them.

  • I don't think I'll ever get back into a regular bikini, however I am able to wear a high waisted it will cover my stretch marks :( Just keep eating healthy and exercising and you will be able to do it!

  • Consider them battle wounds for a job well done.

  • I used cocoa butter (something formulated to smooth away stretch marks). Most of them faded or disappeared. Breast feeding makes your abdomen naturally contract, so it is the best for firming the stomach area.
