Do I need to embrace the one-piece?

So, I'm nearly five months post-partum with my second and last child. My tummy is flat again and my pregnancy weight is nearly gone so I would be bikini fit by the summer were it not for, in order of my concern:

- a stretched and misshapen outtie bellybutton;
- excess tummy skin that looks like crepe paper when I sit down; and
- some very faint stretch marks.

Do I need to wear a one-piece? They don't really suit me as I have a long body and shorter legs. I used to feel great in a bikini and feel very sad that my bikini days may be over.

Wear a bikini - honestly nobody cares or judges.

Sounds like you've still got a great body, be proud smile

I've got the same issue and have gone for a high waisted bikini - lots about but I went for these from Asos:

Your tummy is flat five months post partum? Wear a bikini. End of.
