Zebra stripes don't bother me...
Of course I wouldn't know a stretch mark if I saw one.
I have always had stretch marks on my inner thighs and when I got pregnant I got them on my boobs. It has been 5 years and I am just now feeling comfortable with the ones on my boobs. I think it's just a confidence thing. Before I got pregnant I always wore cleavage shirts after I wouldn't even consider it. I think I have just decided that I am who I am take it or leave it. Although I'm still uncomfortable I am trying to move forward and let it go.
I've been blessed, really. After I lost a ton of weight, I had really big ones for years, but they slowly became less apparent, I'd have to point them out for anyone to see. Even when they were huge and pink, I didn't have a problem. It's my body and the rest of me is a sight to see, if anyone is going to point out the slightest flaw, they have problems.
Why? Every day I am bombarded by Magazines, TV and Internet showing "perfect" women. No stretch marks, no cellulite, full breasts...ect. I know I am beautiful, and my boyfriend loves my body. However, to look in the mirror and fall so short of the media's portrayal of a beautiful woman is disheartening to say the least.
Because they feel pressured, the society is made to be extremely image conscious and girls (in fact even guys) feel the need to look "perfect" nowadays. It's something we have to live with. but it's really good that you feel good about yourself :) happy for you :D
