Cute Bathing Suits That Cover Stretch Marks
Finding a cute swimsuit that looks good on my body and also covers what I want it to cover–like those new tiger stripes I’ve recently earned–can be tough. I’m pretty sure most moms can relate and that some also have to deal with stretch marks from pregnancy, breastfeeding, etc. Now don’t get me wrong, we can show our stretch marks poolside with pride! There’s nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed of. Obviously. Our kids need to see us being confident with our bodies. But if you’re like me and you feel more confident being a bit more modest in your swimsuit choices then I have some great options for you. These swimmies will help you enjoy summer, beach days, and pool days in style and with confidence. 🙂

Tips For Getting Rid of Stretch Marks
All of these bathing suits are great options to hide the stretch marks that you might have gained from pregnancy or breastfeeding. You may have been doing a few things to try and prevent getting stretch marks, but if you already have them and you’re looking to get rid of them (or at least reduce the appearance of your stretch marks), here’s a few natural tips that can help:
Castor oil has been used to treat a number of skin problems. For example, wrinkles, age spots, moles, dark spots, fine lines and pimples. It can also help get rid of stretch marks. Here’s how:
- Apply some castor oil to the stretch marks and gently massage the area in circular motions for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Wrap the area with a thin, cotton cloth. Using a hot water bottle or a heating pad, apply some heat to the affected area for at least a half an hour.
- Repeat this process daily for a minimum of one month to notice positive results.
Aloe vera has many soothing properties and can treat many skin issues including getting rid of stretch marks. There are a couple of ways to apply it:
- You can directly rub aloe vera gel on the affected skin area, leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse the skin with lukewarm water.
- Another option is to make a mixture with one-fourth cup of aloe vera gel, oil from 10 vitamin E capsules and oil from five vitamin A capsules. Rub this mixture onto the skin until fully absorbed. Repeat this process daily.
Another simple way to lessen stretch marks is to use lemon juice. Lemon juice is naturally acidic which helps heal and reduce stretch marks, acne, and other scars.
- One option is to rub fresh lemon juice gently onto the stretch marks using circular motions. Allow the lemon juice to soak into your skin for at least 10 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water.
- Another option is to mix equal quantities of cucumber juice and lemon juice and apply the mixture on the stretch marks.
Happy summer! Hope you enjoyed our list!
