  • Completely normal! Palmers cocoa butter worked for me :)

  • I can’t see but according to my partner I have very light marks on my inner thighs up in that area.

  • Stretch marks on any part of your body is normal if your skin has been stretched – especially in a short period of time. Bio oil and vitamin e are supposed to help lighten them if thats an issue for you.

  • I’m really lucky and don’t have any stretch marks. But I have a really long scar from the cesarean having twins. Wondering if they cut it bigger because of twins?!?

  • Where exactly is downstairs? On or around your vagina? I’ve found since menopause, my labia seem to always be gaping open. Is this normal?

  • Totally normal. I’ve got a huuuge one right down the center. Aswell as all over my body. My eldest kids 13,7 always talk about how it happened whilst they were growing inside me. They love talking about it, picking who causes more and what ones lol

  • I have stretch marks all over my body. It helps me to think of my always super slim sister that also has plenty of stretch marks. They are so normal! you are definitely not alone. At least there, they can’t be seen easily.

  • It’s not uncommon. Stretch marks on your inner thighs occur naturally. They form in the middle layer of your skin after being stretched too far. When the connective fibers of your skin stretch too much, they can tear and leave a mark. This new scar may initially appear as red or purple from blood vessels seen through the skin. They often reduce gradually. Luckily they’re easy to cover up ;)

  • Never really looked. But if I did I’m sure I couldn’t tell them from the scar tissue. I got all my stretch marks post giving birth, not when pregnant. Nothing makes sense!
