So earlier this year I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and as a result I was placed on several medications. One medication (prednisone) has particularly lovely side effects which includes giving you hella lot of stretchmarks. Long story short, here I am 6 month later with strech mark all over my legs, buttocks and a few on my back and arms. I'll attach a photo of someone with similar marks (this girl has a few more than I do). So, would these be a deal breaker?
if you google for stretch marks you will find pics which look really bad... where it's not just about the amount but also the size and depth into the skin. far worse than those you can see here. They would be a problem, but those are extremely rare. The stretch makrs 99% of people talk about are no problem at all for me. I've even seen some where I thought they make the body look more interesting... a bit like tattoos
I see this question a lot on here, and I'll say what I always say: they're so so so common that no one really cares about them as much as they might bother you, and even the most judgy and asshole-ish G@G users on here have previously said that it doesn't bother them, so I think that answers it for you :P
