Whether or not you get stretch marks depends largely on your family history. If your mother and/or sisters had stretch marks, you're likely to have them as well. Other factors do play a part as well, for example:
- skin elasticity
- rate of weight gain
- amount of weight gain
The other side of the issue is that sometimes stretch marks defy the norm. Sometimes you can get stretch marks in unexpected places. Take a tour of some of the locations that stretch marks might creep up.
