So, I suffer the same problem as you, stretch marks and all because I used to be one chubby little Asian girl. Haha. It's kind of embarrassing to wear a bathing suit and having to worry about stuff like that and the way I deal with it is I use this Cream that reduces the deepness of the marks. but in all there is no way to get rid of stretch marks unless you get a tummy tuck, which is tons of money out the door. And it hurts like a mofo. But physically swimming a lot reduces them too. Mine are some what faded so I'm pretty good in my body as of now. It all depends on how much money you want to spend on getting rid of them and how dedicated you are.
