    I had mine for well over a year! :woah: Actually, I just did a "sneak peak" sitting here in my office and it's still there, very faintly....

    mine is still there but fading almost 7 months post partum...I am helping it along by using prescription strength bleaching cream. you can get the over the counter 2% hydroquinone cream like Porcelana and use that twice daily for 3 months on the will help and be sure not to get any sun on the area either because that will stimulate the melanocytes to continue making excess pigment!

    It does take a long time. It's been 3 1/2 years for me & it's mostly gone now. But you can still see it if you look really closely!

    Ok I may sound really dumb but what brown line are we talking about?

    It's not a dumb ? at all. I didn't get it until AFTER the twins were born. It was faint and after a few months it was gone. I didn't get it with Evan at all.

    Mine is still there on the upper part of my belly. On the lower part, below what was my belly button, I scratched it off. It's just dead skin so one day after my shower I went after it with my finger nail. I just haven't had the time to get after the upper belly.
