I have a 2 year old child, and the marks to prove it. I am still slim at a size 10-12, same as I was before I fell pregnant, so size isn't my issue. The problem that I have is stretch marks, I have them all over my stomach now, they aren't particularly noticable, they are quite faint, but whenever I tense my abdominal muscles or my waist measurement goes down, they wrinkle and my stomach turns into a flesh coloured raisen.

Any tips or advice? Please...

Apparently bio oil works really well on stretch marks

Firstly, give it time. Secondly, update your portfolio notes/comments.  If the torso is going to be visible during shoots, make sure the photographer is at least aware.

My guess is that for your fetish work it won't matter, for the topless stuff that might be a different matter but without seeing the issue it is a bit difficult to advise.

Regards,

Glenn

The OP was asking for advice on the actual problem, not with how it will affect her modelling, or am I reading it wrong?

Bio Oil is supposed to be really good, also Palmers Cocoa Butter You need to apply it twice a day.

bio oil is actually in poundland and much cheaper than a chemist/store and you save £££

In fairness to GSC4X, the OP's comment is rather vague in that department and could be contstrude either way in my opinion. The OP being a model and posting on a model site would suggest (to me at least) she would at least be including wanting to cure the problem as a model as well as a woman wanting to look her best. As such I think his advice is pretty much on the button, after all, even if she wasn't enquiring regarding her modelling career, it's certainly going to effect it.

i have 3 children and stretch marks to boot, bio oil dose work but not as well after the pregnancy, but i have chosen to not use it anyway, it has not harmed my modeling and i work up to art nude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and i have also been praised by photographers for being proud of them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
so it will NOT affect your modeling there are plenty of photographers that are more then capable of working with a post preganent belly.

I'm sorry if my answer is not satisfying, but I think it's a bit late to think about it now. 

You probably would have avoided streachmarks by using spacial skin care products when you got pregnant - before your skin started streaching.
Exercising also plays part in your skin flexiblity.

Now I think it's only the professional treatment and that can be quite expensive. 

But then again you never know what they'll invent tomorrow emoticon
