    Hiya. You can get stretch markes when you grow rapidly (ie your boobs grow fast). The skin grows faster than the veins can support them (something like that). Are they red or silvery/blue?

    They will fade away after a while, try rubbing Cocoa Butter cream into them.

    Try not to worry about your b/f, if he cares about you he will not mind and if you feel uncomfortable don't strip off until you are happy (or you could say before hand).

    hi thanx 4 replying they are a reddy purpley sort of colour i heard that the sun could help them or going on a sun bed? ive only bin with my b/f a few weeks its just his mate started joking about a girl who had strech marks that he new and its made me even more parnoid! x

    I don't think the sun or having a sunbed actually helps, it is just said to disguise the marks because you're giving yourself a slight tan. Probably not worth the effort. You can get special creams which are said to make stretch marks fade...but I think it's unlikely that they will go away completely.Have a look in boots at the ones available.
    as k.t. said try the cocoa butter, it may help a bit. and don't worry about your boyfriend, I'm sure if he likes you enough it really won't bother him! -xx <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    they dont ever go away completely but they should fade and become hardly noticeable. vitamin E cream is really good for stretch marks

    I had the same problem at your age. Avon skin so soft dry body oil worked wonders for me and now they are completely invisible.

    My ex had stretch marks on her hips and her 'rack', she tried to hide them. Most lads will find very easy to get over, it may just affect yourself?
