Why would this have to have anything to do with being a guy? I'm a dude, and I have some stretch marks. Being a girl doesn't have anything to do with whether you have stretch marks or not...

Guys can get stretch marks too, I'm 16 and a guy and because I grew too fast I have multiple stretch marks on my legs.

I believe it's related to growth as a child, because the skin hasn't grown enough. I may be wrong, though. Let's ask DocBastard about this subject.

19 did you not see the hip stretch marks on the Olympic athlete that I can't name of the top of my head? Anyone can get stretch marks on their hips don't need to be over weight. Sorry just noticed you said generally..

Not all overweight people get stretch marks, but if you put on weight quickly you can get them. That's why pregnant women get them a lot on the stomach and boobs. It just has to do with your skin stretching faster than it can grow.

I was told to use olive oil if you can't afford the expensive lotions :) Nothing to be embarrassed about though. It happens.

Since hers are pink cocoa butter, vitamin E and the like could really help! Mine are white (I got them when I was young from a medication that made me fat post-pneumonia. I dropped the weight instantly and the stretch marks stayed :( ) and rubbing vitamin E on them everyday for a month (so far) has actually helped them fade. Good luck op!

If this were true, pregnant women wouldn't complain about stretch marks as much. I used lotion before I got a big belly and after. Still got stretch marks. My sister in law has had three kids (one was breech and HUGE on her petit build) and got zero stretch marks. It all depends on what your skin is like. Time makes them fade and I heard tanning might help but you can't get rid of stretch marks once they're there.

I just got stretch marks on my thighs, hips, and breasts cause I just started growing all at once. They're still purple; will putting vitamin E really work?

Since you're still young, it should. The longer you don't treat them, the harder it'll be to cover them up or make 'em fade. Stock up on cocoa butter and E and apply daily.

1) Other people in the room were curious about the 'tattoo' 2) Pulling your brother aside and lifting up your shirt as a woman is frowned upon 3) Hiding it from everybody but the brother would lead them to believe there really was a tattoo and she was hiding it from them ....and so on.

Why did you show everyone else? "Believe me or don't, I don't care. " That should've been your attitude

Because if she still lives at home with her parents, they were probably pissed that she got a tattoo and she had to prove she didn't.

I don't know if it would be any better to have her mom ground her for the next three years because she thinks she got a tattoo. I had a crazy growth spurt when I was younger and have stretch marks. Luckily I have lots of other things to be self-conscious about so I forget about them a lot. I noticed some on my hips the other day, white, not pink though.

because losing weight automagically removes stretch marks. dumb fuck. people don't get stretch marks JUST from gaining weight. growing can simply cause it.

I've always been thin, but when I was 11 I grew a lot and got stretch marks from it. If I weighed any less I'd be underweight (people tell me I'm underweight now, but according to my BMI I'm the low end of normal).

Reply

it was not directed to you. she was stabbing OP about weight issues when stretch marks happen for more reasons than that.

So let me help you out. As most people know now weight gain, becoming prego and grow at a rapid paste can cause stretch marks. NOT ONLY WEIGHT DUMBASS...

You r obviously skinny huh? Stretch marks don't just occur from weight gain. There are a very rare few out there who never get them.

Er, shirts don't levitate? Ever stretched? Ever got your shirt stuck on something? Ever just simply brushed your own arm against your shirt? All of these things cause it to go up...
