  • YES! i have the c-section "mommy pouch" and it looks terrible in a bathing suit. add that with a side order of fat ass and thighs - and you have one self-conscious momma! i always wear shorts over my suit.

  • I never wear a swim suit. I never go near the water in anything but walking shorts.

  • No because I am losing the last 50 pounds and I am running Iron man and I am currently learning Aikido and Krav maga and I go into a seal boot camp training series next week with my friend. So its all good.

  • I am overweight but I've found a suit that flatters my weird body (tiny waist and hips, large boobs and belly) so I can finally be in the water with my kids as much as they deserve.

  • Yep but I am still wearing my bikini.

  • I didn't use to until I had kids and now that I had kids. Now that I have kids I had bad stretchmarks everywhere so yes I hate myself in a swim suit now lol

  • Nah, I have a muffin top but it's going away finally!

  • I love myself even more now that I have kids. I honestly don't even notice my stretch marks, and I am not the skinniest either. I am a size 9 and only 5'5, I still wear little bikinis! If someone doesn't like it they can look elsewhere! I love me :)

  • I wouldn't use the word "Hate" but I am not happy about my waistline and since I am a gramma, I do have wrinkly skin now....sigh....and no matter how slim you are at age 68 the skin is still wrinkly. Its sad. MAke sure that you lose weight before the age of about 50 so your skin will bounce back. If you wait too long,your skin won't bounce back. Wrinkly. Ugh.Crinkly arms and thighs. That should make you lose,doncha think? LOL.
