Would you wear a 2 piece if you had bad stretch marks? Also does it gross you out when you see a woman in a bikini with stretch marks?

I just said to myself that I'm buying a two piece. I don't care what ppl think. My hubby loves my body and that's all that matters.

That's so great! I probably wouldn't have worn my bikini this year if I had visible stretch marks but I'm hyper-self conscious. Kudos to you, momma!

That is why im asking, my hubby has pretty muched begged me to wear one since i lost a lot of weight and should be proud of my body but i swear i have stretch marks from the bottom of my belly clear up to my ribs since i was heavy when i got preggo. Hopefully they will fade a bit before next year so he can see me in one

I have seen women wear two pieces that have worse strtch marks than I do and I don't judge, I think its great that they have the confidence to rock a 2 piece. I would with my DH but not with the kids or fam and friends

I think people should wear what they like and what flatters them. There will always be people who think you look good and there will always be people who think you look like crap. For the first time in my life I'm actually swimming without a t shirt on. I bought several really cute flattering tankinis and am rocking them. I'm overweight, and everyone can tell regardless of what I wear so I'm not gonna bog myself down with a t shirt. I'm sure some people may wish they brought eye bleach to the pool, but nobody has yet to say anything or look at me weird. I think we are WAY harder on ourselves than anyone else ever is. I say if the suit flatters you otherwise, stretch marks be damned.

This summer is the first I've felt comfortable to seriously wear a two piece around hubby and company!!(today was the first around friends!) I don't look great but after 3kids(youngest being almost 10m)stretch marks, a saggy belly, I feel proud to finally be okay with myself! If others than look worse than me can do it and not care, why should have have any shame?!

I wouldn't even if I had the body for it because of my stretch marks and seeing other women like that does make me sick.
