Hi There,

Choose clothing that will conceal stretch marks. Low-rise jeans are out of the question. They will show your belly and any stretch marks on it. Instead, go for jeans with a mid-rise cut that sits just below your natural waist. This rule holds true for any type of pants, shorts or skirts. Pair these bottoms with a shirt that falls mid-hip to prevent revealing the stretch marks when you lift your arms.

Avoid revealing your décolletage if you have stretch marks on your breasts. If this feels less than sexy, wear a shirt that shows off your back, or a skirt with a slit on the side

how do i remove stretch marks. are there creams out there?

Stretch marks may be because of fat that is held by fat deposits which I know creates cellulite and the stretch marks get more visible cause of it. I had stretch marks from growing so quick when I was a teenager, then they faded over time. Since then I am in my mid 20's, gain some weight and it all came back more visible. What I am trying to say is there is really no way to get rid of it unless your really young and like a I said let it fade. Its always there though unless you have surgery. If you cant afford that and/or are to young. Then just eat healthy and work out a few times a week. The fat cell deposits will get smaller. Otherwise just learn to deal with it everybody has it.

Why do i have stretch marks?

Ok, so i am 14 years old and i have stretch marks on the inside of one of my thighs. I am not fat, I am 5 foot 9 inches and am very active and athletic. I have had them for a little over a year and i hate them! why do i have them and how can i get rid of them?

Stretch marks occur when you grow (in heigh or weight) too fast for your skin to accommodate. Since you're 14, it's likely that you've had a serious growth spurt within the last couple years. You grew in height too quickly. Your skin couldn't keep up, so it stretched instead.

Unfortunately, stretch marks are scars. There is no real way to get rid of them completely. You might be able to find creams at your local pharmacy that might help visibly reduce the appearance of the stretch marks, but won't get rid of them. Dermatologists will tell you the same thing.

But there's a silver lining in this cloud. There are a LOT, I mean a LOT, of women that have stretch marks. You aren't alone in this. It's a common thing. Women most commonly get them on their thighs, hips, stomach, and breasts. Even men get stretch marks. Stretch marks are common and you shouldn't be embarrassed by them or "hate" them. You may consider them to be unsightly, but they really aren't a big deal. Try some confidence boosting exercises and don't shy away from wearing the shorts or bikinis. Constantly remind yourself that stretch marks are very common.
