    Would you were this (or something similar) to your local pool?

    No, I'm into brightly coloured bikinis! I'm sure there is a market for such swimwear though.

    No, but I wouldn't care if someone did.

    What would you think of someone wearing this at an indoor pool?

    Is it a fast suit? For training in? I honestly wouldn't care. I'm there to swim.

    Not personally. The funny thing is that I'd feel more self concious being so covered up, than I would wearing a bikini. I guess because it's the social norm in Aus to wear a bikini/one peice. Wouldn't phase me if someone else wore it though.

    No I wouldnt wear that. I wear a bikini.
    I wouldn't care if someone wore that maybe they have a health problem or are training or its religious or whatever. I seriously rarely notice these types of things.

    Nothing really. People wear different things to the pool all the time. I'd probably think (if I thought about it, which I probably wouldn't) that they didn't feel comfortable with too much skin showing. I doubt that I'd even notice to be honest.

    DH usually takes the kids to swimming lessons but for the next few months he's got work commitments on Saturdays which means I've to take them.
    That would be OK except there is no way in hell DD (16 months) will sit quietly by so I can take her out for a walk OR I can get in the pool with her for a half an hour or so. She would LOVE that.
    BUT I just don't do exposed flesh! I've ever have been one to flash the flesh no matter what size I am and the thoughts of being in a shallow pool in next to nothing, well I'd rather tongue a dog's a$$hole.
    I'm even uncomfortable with all that exposed flesh around me (ISSUES) but I can deal with that so long as I feel comfy myself, which covering up would do.
    It's just that I've never seen anyone wear anything like that, I must be alone in my oddness on this one.

    Board shorts and a t shirt is really common at the pool I go to. Lots of the mums with young kids wear that.
