(I know I'm on a photographer account, but I work very occasionally as a model)

Basically I have some quite bad stretch marks on my boobs/thighs/bum which have always bothered me. They bother me less now as they've faded a little (and that my boyfriend doesn't care about them at all), but I'd prefer them to fade more...

I've tried Palmer's stretch mark lotion stuff, but it isn't helping anymore :\ anyone have any advice?

Also, topless/nude/glamour/etc modelling... I guess stretch marks aren't approved of? What do you think?

bio oil is apparently good, i suppose it depends how much post work a photographer wants to do on the marks and how bad they are as to whether it's an issue

The term 'bad' in relation to stretch marks is often a matter of perception, the owner being far more critical than the observer. Most can be worked around on nude photography, so the answer is, it depends.

Bio oil is rubbish don't waste your money on any of the so called miracle workers, trust me having two kids one of them being 3 weeks old I know...
I started getting them around 4 month ago when I was pregnant I tried everything I spent hundreds.... Believing they would work... They don't!!!

I gave up... I started using sea salts rubbing it on my stretch marks and only using Palmolive soap... Stretch marks... Where?!!! There gone...
Honestly try it

Bio oil is crap & it stinks. I agree with Mel, none of these 'amazing miracle creams' work, they won't stop your getting or get rid of stretch marks. I was very lucky through my pregnancy & only got very faint ones on my tummy (u can hardly see them unless I point them out) & that was after using nothing all the way through.
I don't have any miracles for you to try but photoshop is there to help! Just be sure to mention it pre shoot.
Don't worr too much over it!
