Style 911: 3 Bathing suit shapes that hide stretch marks
Shape #1: Try a tankini for stretch marks on your boobs or belly.
The longer shirt style totally covers up any marks you might be insecure about. Try a funky mismatched bottom to look super stylish when you hit the beach.

Shape #2: Rock a one-piece bathing suit for stretch marks on your waist or belly.
The monokini is not just a boring alternative to a bikini. It’s actually this season’s most stylish swimwear piece! A striped maillot does wonders for your shape. Hello, insta-curves!

Tip # 1: Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
Use lotions like cocoa butter that increase your body’s elasticity and stimulate blood flow. You can also massage your skin with vitamin E oils. Vitamin E is a powerful anti-oxidant that supports your skin’s self-healing process. Smells yummy, too!
Tip # 2: Use self tanner but do NOT go tanning!
While self-tanning lotion makes your stretch marks less noticeable, the tanning salon will do just the opposite! Stretch marks won’t tan under real UV rays but rather turn out all white (eek).
Tip # 3: Work out (sorry guys)!
We know ya don’t wanna hear it - but working out might just be the key to solving the stretch mark sitch. With a quick workout once a day, you can fight the appearance of stretch marks (most of them are built from fat so once ya get rid of that, they’ll disappear, too!). Try a couple of sit-ups, push ups and leg pumpers once a day and ya can wave stretch marks buh-bye!
