The only place I have stretch marks is on my bum! Im sure I got them while pregnant after DD2. Just had a look at them and there are loads of really thin silvery lines, are these old or new? I thought with new ones they are red? Please reassure me that my back side hasn't grown that big!

I'd be a very rich lady if I knew how to get rid of stretch marks.

Does Bio-Oil work? I think it's meant to sort out existing stretch marks - or maybe that is just wishful thinking on my part as it is so very, very expensive?

I use bio oil and palmers cocoa butter - the thick one in a tub not the lotion. And, I think it works, you can only see mine these days on close inspection! Although I am mixed race and so my skin is quite brown. So maybe a tan will help too? smile

I used strivectin SD, which is expensive but it has helped a lot.
