    I Hate My Stretch Marks So Much That It's Ruining My Life.

    I Feel Like Freddy Krueger

    I'm 16, almost 17, and have really distinct stretch marks all over my body. My whole family struggles with weight problems, myself included and it's pretty much ruined my confidence. I believe this is a main reason as to why I am so shy and introverted with others. I'm really...

    Everywhere

    I have them on my arms, hips, my back, going down to my outer arms, and behind my knee. I despise them, and can't even wear a t shirt for fear of them showing. It sucks, it has lowered my self esteem so badly. I feel so ugly. Always. Looking in the mirror makes me feel sick. Help...

    I Love Stretchmarks

    I actually really like them. They are so sexy on a woman. If they are from carrying your children or from weight gain then that is ok. There nothing sexier than teasing a woman by tracing the stretchmarks on her body. It is so erotic to me. The more a woman has the more fun you...

    Stretch Marks Ruining My Life

    I'm only 18, and when I gained weight, my body exploded with horrible red stretch marks on every inch of my body. On my stomach all over, the inside of my arms, above my armpit, down my sides and little on my back. I can't wear swimsuits, or tanks, or short sleeve. It's 90 degree...

    Stretch Marks

    I have sensitive skin and yup, I have a few stretch marks. When I was younger, this lady noticed at a spot where I have them, and she said, be careful.
