    Default Going topless at the beach

    What are your thoughts on females going topless at the beach?

    I'm not talking about undoing your top and laying on your stomach so your back gets a tan, I'm talking walking around/swimming with your mams out.

    If you have, why?

    And if you wouldn't, what are your thoughts?

    It's not something I'd be comfortable doing, and I admit to being a little curious as to why some women choose to do so.

    No judgement, just a topic of random discussion.

    Its no hurting me so I don't really care. More power to them! If they are acting inappropriately I would have an issue but probably wouldn't do or say anything, I would probably just move somewhere else.

    I have but not at a beach. And I definitely wouldn't now. Purely because a) it is very uncommon where I am, except at very secluded spots and usually then only tourists do it, and b) my boobs look like deflated balloons filled with sand and I don't have the confidence these days!

    I think the double standards we have are outrageous. If a woman wants to go topless she should be able to without judgement, shame and harassment.

    In saying that I never have and I probably never will. But that's just because I generally don't like walking around naked. Plus my boobs are huge so ouch!

    Totally agree with this!
    Thanks to breastfeeding, breasts are utterly unsexualised for me, though even before bfing I never had any qualms about going topless or showing my boobs, I've never thought of them as a "private part".

    Of course in reality I'd never go topless at the beach because I have white European skin and so stay as covered as possible

    Not something I would do, but then again I don't go to the beach!

    If women want to get their boobs out, then good for them. I just hope they're using sunscreen!

    I've only done it in Nice, was pretty much the norm. Here I wouldn't do it.

    My opinion like me has matured over the years.

    Once I hated it and thought it was disrespectful. Now I am whatever they are just boobs. It's still not my cup of tea. But whatever floats your boat.
    12 + years breastfeeding and I just want boobs to seen as boobs not a guaranteed sex toy. After that isn't there only use.
