So Brave (Anonymous)

September 24, 2008

I had my 3rd child 7 months ago..I was so scared to look at my body after giving birth it made me sick..I tried so many things to prevent stretch marks, like bathing in fruits and veggies, I broke tons of vitamin e capsules and put it on..I am so self conscious of my body..I get so jealous of woman that can wear a bathing suit or even shorts, I got tons of stretch mark on my butt and legs. Looking at this site has helped me a lot, at first I was like I would never show my body but after reading almost everyones stories it has made me realize these marks and stretched skin is badge of being a woman and I’m not the only one. I think all the woman on here are so beautiful and brave to go through what they did (making a life)it makes me feel honored to have them.

    Is it me but I can’t see hardly any stretchmark on your body!! I’ve had one child and don’t look like that!!
    If I was you I’d wear a 2 piece bathing suit!!

    Wow. I agree. Three kids!? You look beautiful!!!

    I feel the same way here. I’ve had one and although my stomach is flat and relatively stretchmark free, my butt and thighs are a whole ‘nother story. Just remember to try to feel comfortable in the skin you’re in. You’re beautiful! :D

    imperfection is what makes up different from one another, if we dont have flaws we’re not normal. you look very very sexy girl! i have 3 boys and i got the marks too,but that dont stop me from wearing a sexy swimsuit out boating!i always say if you dont mind neither do others

    your pictures are absolutely gorgeous. they have a mature, womanly, maternal look while being SO smooth and flat i had to look twice to see if they were PP! i love brandy’s comment that if you don’t mind, neither do others. confidence is IT. thanks for sharing!!

    Very beautiful! I can’t see why you can’t wear a bathing suit or shorts!
