    Sooo I was told stretch marks fade? It's only 3wks after giving birth so I don't expect them to have faded yet but I'm just wondering if this is true? And anything I can do to help? Lol
    I want a miracle washboard tummy lol (no chance!!) xx

    I can't really recall when they had faded to a point where I didn't notice them anymore, but it certainly took a while. I know they were barely visible at 9 months post partum which was when I went on hols and word a bikini for the first time since giving birth.

    I have some pretty mean stretchers that were really red from DS. Three years on you don't notice the colour at all but the stretch marks themselves haven't changed in texture, or size. I remember them having faded a lot by the time I went back to work after 9-12 months.

    Stretch marks won't disappear, they just go white or silvery. I have loads on my arms and hips from when I was a teenager. They don't bother me though. The ones from my pregnancy have just added to the collection!
