Confidence. Honestly it is the best thing for wearing a bikini. I spend half my summer in a swimsuit for work and I just had to stop caring how I looked. If you rock your bikini with confidence NO ONE will notice your stretch marks. I promise ๐Ÿ™‚

PS. I know this wasn’t the answer you were looking for but I had to throw it out there because its true! I have stretch marks, but only on my inner thighs. I’ve never had to worry about “hiding” them so I don’t have any advice on how to do so.

First let me say that you are probably way over thinking it.  If your man is happy with, then what is the big deal.  That being said, have you ever tried a spray tan.  I don’t know for sure but is seems like the spray tan would fill in the whiteness of the stretch marks.  I would recommend trying it before your honeymoon.

Eh, I have stretch marks.  I still rock a bikini.  I think it’s no big deal.  They’re always more noticeable to you than everyone else.

I got some chub and other unpleasantries going on in a bikini.

I focus on the 70 year old women tanning topless on the beach in their bikinis. SURELY i look better than that!!!!!!!!! =P. But seriously, if a 70 year old woman baring it all can be confident, screw it, bring me a pina colada and so will I.

I have to agree with babyboo- it’s all about confidence. I used to care all about what people were thinking about me and what I looked like. But then I realized that everyone else was probably worrying about the same thing, and even if they weren’t it was highly unlikely that they even cared what I looked like in a bathing suit. ๐Ÿ˜›

I’m a little chunky, and I have stretch marks on my stomach, arms, thighs, back… But I’ve also lost 75lbs, and I’m not going to let a little jiggle and some stretch marks stop me form strutting my stuff!  I agree with the other ladies that it’s ALL about confidence!  Rock your bikini with pride! ๐Ÿ™‚

@trugem: “I look at my pics from when I was younger and I want to kick myself now because I was always complaining about some little thing. Now I am wishing that I looked the way I did at 17. And when I am 40 I will probably be wishing I looked the way I did at 30. lol”

This is so, so, so true! I was so uncomfortable with my body in high school and college. Now I look back and see that I was perfectly fine and adorable! I wish I could just go back in time and tell high school/college me to be confident and happy with myself. So, just imagine 40 year old you coming to the present time and telling you you’re beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚ Live it up girl!!!

Stretch marks are the LAST thing i notice on a woman. The #1 thing i notice is boobs flopping around unsupported. Cuz it makes me cringe in pain. =]. You’re good to go!
