I'm a new mommy and have always worn cute bikini's, but now my body is in no shape to be shown off like that! I can't bring myself to wear a one piece. Any advice in cute swim wear that will hide my stretch marks and still be cute and age appropriate (im 19)

I love those retro swimsuits from the 50's.They are halter top and a little longer at the hip. They are one piece but I think they are super cute and sexy! Good luck :)

I just got back from the beach and any size women wears anything now. Size does not dictate suits any more.

I just got back from the beach. I saw 200lb 40yo+ women in bikinis.

A cute bathing suit cover or a sarong goes a long way to covering those stretch marks. Once you are in the water nobody will see them.

Tankinis are cute and cover the scar area usually.  they show maybe an inch of midriff.  I have always been a one piece girl so i go between the plain ones or the ones with little skirts for the hip/thigh area.
