    So I'm about a size 6/8 and I'm nearly 19 years old but during puberty I got a sh*t tonne of stretch marks covering pretty much my whole bum, the back of my upper thighs, some on my knees and others dotted around on my legs that aren't too noticeable. I hate it so much that I haven't worn shorts in years, I hate summer because I get hot but only ever wear jeans to cover them and when I go on holiday I never go swimming because I just don't want my legs to be out and I don't want to have to look at myself. I have a confident personality but my pure hatred of my legs holds me back with putting myself out there because I don't want people to see my stretch marks...I feel like I have to warn people before they see (which is stupid since they're not that bad but to me they're completely shattered my confidence).
    Honestly don't know what to do at this point, I cant go on avoiding seeing and letting other people see my legs forever...

    'I'm confident but I don't like being vulnerable' then you're not confident, confidence is about being comfortable with vulnerability, find a guy who doesn't care about your stretch marks the rest are just garbage.

    guys don't care about stretch marks if you have a phat ass to go with it.

    I have stretch marks myself on the inside of my thighs and armpit/biceps.....We honestly don't care if a girl has them and appears to be healthy.
