Help! Off to tennerife but hate my body due to stretch marks - any ideas?
I have no idea what to do! I have strech marks: legs, thighs and tummy. Most noticeable ones on my tummy and then some almost as bad ones right at the top of my tighs. Plus some very faded ones on my boobs but you can't see them much.
I am going to tennerife. If it was just us, I wouldn't mind so much but it is a big group of us, me being the biggest of us all. Am loosing weight with Slimming world and going well but I am so concerned about my stretch marks. I don't want to be over dressed the whole time because of stretch marks!
Somebody suggested a spray tan before I go - but was worried: a) If it will actually cover them up in the slightest? b) If it will just wash off being in and out the pool the whole time?!
I have a horrendously stretch marked tummy and don't normally bother with going abroad as no-one knows me anyway. Obviously this isn't the case with you!
This year, we're going camping to a place with an outdoor pool, in the UK. I'm a bit more cautious about parading about in a bikini and have NEVER worn a bikini in the UK ever so I've ordered one of these I've ordered the top in a bigger size so that it will hide my belly. And the shorts style bottoms will hide the stretch marks at the top of your thighs.
I think a spray tan will see you through the first day at least.
Jenny, I just got the reversible turquoise one delivered tonight. I ordered the size 16 top thinking that because i've just lost loads of weight that will be big and hide the gap in the tummy. It does, but barely and only because the top off the shorts are quite high. I might send it back to change for an 18 to be honest.
