Heck no, it won't freak people out! You should be proud of your weight loss and be able to wear whatever makes you comfortable. I hear a lot of people on here call stretch marks "battle scars". It's ok because pretty much every single woman has them somewhere.

Plus, people are so concerned with themselves that they probably wouldn't even notice them. If they did, they are just stretch marks and like I said, everyone has 'em!

Go rock those sleeveless tops!

What she said!!

I have them too, and I don't care... Nobody notices. I use that gradual tanning lotion on my arms and legs and it helps to camouflage a lot of that stuff... but honestly, nobody notices!

I have them too and have had them for years, even when they are faded I can still see them... they are the worst, so hard to hide because most girly short sleeve shirts show them. Sometimes lots of scrubbing and moisturizing helps them be less noticeable.

I think when I get down to my goal weight I might try to get some tattoos over them, maybe even half sleeves...

I have alot of stretchmarks on my "Bat Wings,"thighs, stomach, back....well pretty much everywhere...I've gone out to the beach in a Bikini, and no one payed attention or said anything...I think you'll be ok with sleeveless shirts =D Go for it. Congrats on your weight loss
