No. I think you should wear whatever you feel comfortable in. I'm on iPad so I can't post pics easily, but I love my body. I don't wear a bikini just because I personally don't like them on me, but I think if you feel good in one you should wear it. What other people think doesn't matter.

Not at all! If people don't like it they don't need to look ;)

I hear getting sun helps their appearance? Not sure about that but that's a plus to wear one!

If I lost a little more weight I'd definitely head out in a bikini and I have a few stretch marks on my tummy, thighs, & hips! I'm 22 & have a 2yo and 7 week old :)

I don't know how, but I got lucky and missed out on the stretch marks, but I don't think they're gross at all. I say rock that hot momma body in a skimpy bikini! And PLEASE share some pics! =D

why don't you get a nice tattoo piece to cover the tummy ones. like a nice flower piece going across your stomach. the boob ones are easily hidden with the right bikini top. when i got scars on my boobs from having a surgery to remove tumors i told my doctor i hated them and she said, you should get tattoos over them. i mean the possibilities are endless, flowers with some butterflies or dragonflies, anything

I got a few little stretchmarks around my belly button. Very thin and small and they make it look like my belly button has been pierced even though it never has. They are skin colored though and even though they arent bad, im still paranoid about what ppl will think about me in a bikini. It really just depends on how bad they are and how YOU feel about it. Because of course some people will judge it because they are rude and dont respect that you got those from giving birth. But I dont see a problem with it. If you are comfortable wearing one, thats all that matters
