I have a question. A lot of my friends say that because I have a nice figure after having two kids that I shouldn't be afraid to show off my stomach. I have stretchmarks and am very insecure about them. Do you think that I shouldn't care what other people say and flaunt my nice figure or continue covering up my stretch marks? I just don't think people want to see my messed up stomach. Would you show it off or hide it? :oops:

I was never the type of person to walk around in a short shirt but I would still go to the pool in a bikini.

A little bit that's because I'm still a bit over weight. The stretch marks don't bother me though because my beautiful baby gave them to me.

You're young and beautiful.
Embrace it now and screw what anyone else thinks.
We're only getting older, you don't wanna look back and regret not doing it.
And if you're happy and confident, people will notice that more than anything.

You are beautiful! Show it off. You are a mother and that is a wonderful thing. No need to be embarrassed.



I have scars, bad ones, from a car wreck. (U shaped red scars under my knees) I was shy to wear shorts at first. Then I wore a skirt one day and a cute gentleman smiled at me and said "Your knees smiled at me so I wanted to smile back". Since then I have embraced them!

Thank you all so much. =) I feel a lot better. Maybe I will get a cute top and go out and see what happens. I appreciate the feedback. :D
