Stretch marks & bathing suits?

Okay so I'm 17 and I weigh 175 pounds. I'm 5'5. I have stretch marks pretty bad on my love handles. I'm very self-conscious of my body when I wear a bathing suit. Usually I wear a tankini. My boyfriend wants to go swimming and I'd like to wear a bikini. Will he find me gross because my stretch marks?

  • Are you entitled to wear a bikini? Sure! But if you do, some people will judge your body, not just on the stretch marks, but also on your weight. Your boyfriend may overlook such things, but even he might get bothered by negative attention you may get. It is your decision. but in the long run, you should work on losing some of that weight, so that you can makes such decisions without worry.

  • I doubt it'd bother him, they don't bother me. I have them on my arms and lower back from a growth spurt lol. I see plenty of people with stretch marks somewhere.

  • You know if you start putting Retin-A on the marks, they may diminish? It is a prescription product., You need to see a physician to get it

  • You can't help that you have strechmarks. Your boyfreind should be accepting of that. You should wear whatever you feel most comfortable in.
