    I always wear bikinis except for swimming lessons, I wear tankinis that cover a bit more because bub pulls on your top. Not sure about the boardies though, not sure of their purpose.

    There's nothing wrong with you wearing a swimsuit on it's own either. It's just personal choice.
    Exactly this!

    The purpose of boardies is to give women some more confidence in themselves, not sure your comment is exactly helpful, i actually find it quite obnoxious.

    I wear a bikini for 'leisure' (beach, holiday, etc) and a one piece for swim lessons or lap swimming. Just feels like the practical choice but I am also uncomfortable wearing my bikini to swim lessons. Don't really know why, just doesn't feel like an appropriate choice for *myself*.

    The OP asked why so many people seemed to be wearing boardies and rashies at swimming lessons. I assume "I don't know what the purpose of boardies is" was in response to the OPs question. I don't see what is so offensive about that comment.

    I wear a rashie and shorts in the pool and at the beach. For me it's mainly because I lack body confidence and would rather have it all covered up.

    I wear a rashie because DS grabs onto me and I've had the occasional boob pop out. At the beach I have to wear a rashie because my skin burns no matter how much sunscreen I wear. Every year I have more and more sun spots, my skin does very poorly in the sun. I already have some sun damage on my chest.
