    Default What do you wear when you swim in public?

    If I can ever find a bikini to fit my boobs (12DD) then I just wear the bikini. Walking around I wear one of those hippy wrap around skirts and a singlet over the top but actually on the beach I figure no ones really going to care about my insecurities.

    I'm usually a 10-12, more like a 14-16 ATM (33w pregnant) I wear a tankini, but am conscious of having koala bear ears!! So try to find either a small wrap skirt or boarders to cover up :-) I don't usually have a lot of cellulite, but ATM it seems as though it starts at my knees - id hate to see my bum in a bikini bottom right now! Lol

    I brought a bikini to wear under clothes. My loving DD's told me that "I could never wear them in public because my boob are like old man socks and my loose skin covers my bottoms so you can't tell I am wearing them.
    That's horrible! I'd get a thumping if I had ever said something like that to my mum! Haha

    It was said lovingly not in a mean way.

    Default Re: What do you wear when you swim in public?

    A bikini or a one piece, depending on how I'm feeling and also if I'm swimming laps or just lazing around. Both are really very modest (the bikini bottoms are almost boy legged and the waist goes almost to my belly button) I don't really care what people think of me.

    Currently I feel feral- im 32 weeks pregnant, so I wear boardies (although very short ones) and a singlet over my bikini.

    Normally it's just bikinis though , not the really reaally skimpy ones though!

    I actually felt more confident post having dd then before, I think it was that I didn't expect myself to have the perfect body anymore....

    Hmmmm I think I'll look into this.
    To be fair I haven't done much bikini shopping I usually get discouraged after the first shop and just don't go swimming

    Edit: woah I don't know if I can spend that much, I can barely stand spending $10 on myself D:

    I wear a 50s style swimsuit that comes down a little bit into short shorts on my bum -if that makes any sense at all! It's a halter neck with a little cleavage but it's pretty modest, I think the style is definitely sexy and makes me feel comfortable though. I don't like anyone to see my tummy except my husband but I have been on the beach in bikinis before when I was a bit thinner because it was really hot and I didn't care, I don't look at anyone else so I don't know if anyone is ever looking at me haha!

    Do you feel the urge to dress modestly at the beach or public pool, or are you confident to rock your swimwear?
    Very confident to rock it
    2 kids and no stretchmarks and very little cellulite, my body is not much different to what it was pre pregnancy.
