The inside of your thigh is a place where you might get a few stretch marks. This is an area that some women gain weight in rather easily. If you are someone who tends to add weight there, then stretch marks are also a possibility.

You might also notice some on your legs. Near the knee is one common place. You can find them on the back side of the leg more frequently.
