My concern is my linea nigra. I has definitely faded but it's still there and it bothers me. I've been using rubbing alcohol and that has really helped -A LOT. This may be TMI but when I rub an alcohol soaked cotton swab along the line and color actually comes off and transfers to the cotton swab. I've been doing this a couple of times a week and I've been noticing a difference but I think I'm at the point where my body needs to kick into action to get rid of it; if it decides to. My doctor said that it may not go away which scared the crap out of me but I'm staying hopeful. My aunt who has the same olive skinned coloring as me, had the linea nigra and hers disappeared over time so that's what is giving me hope.
I've been searching for a one-piece that won't make me feel old and frumpy but I don't want to invest in one because I'm hoping to return to a bikini eventually. Which isn't a problem because Victoria's Secret and Macy's have really disappointed me with their options. My favorite place, Target (pronounced: Tar-jay) seems to have the best selection and of course, the best prices too.
