    Wouldnt really think twice about it.
    A few parents have often had long/short sleeve rashie and boardies

    I second this! I used to wear a tankini top and women's boardies when I first started taking DS to swimming, as I was still carrying a lot baby weight and very self concious.

    No I wouldn't but wouldn't think twice about someone else wearing it.

    Would you be comfortable in a longer pair of board shorts and rashie?

    Something like this:

    I wouldn't personally. Having grown up by the beach I wear bikinis, even when pregnant. But it's not uncommon to see people (of any age/shape/size) walking around cafes in bikinis or boardies up here, being a coastal/holiday area.

    I wouldn't care of someone else wore it. It might get a few strange looks at our local pool, simply because it's different and not usual swimming attire. It might be more common in a city or more multicultural area where covering up is more common for religious reasons etc.

    Is it just the flesh issue that you have problems with? Only asking because looking at your photo I can see more 'shape' etc wearing something like that then what you could see wearing a pair of board shorts.

    Nope!
    I don't want to see my legs at all

    Yeah, just flesh.
    I don't think I'm in too bad shape for someone who gets no time to exercise.
    I'm forgiving myself a lot there.
    Maybe I have a phobia?

    Yes... I can see the dreaded camel toe in that pic!

    Fair enough. Go with whatever you're most comfortable in.

    Yeah, gives me the willies.
    Just thinking, I don't wear shorts or skirts or anything remotely girly/revealing day to day, so I just don't see why I should throw myself completely out of my comfort zone to enjoy time with my kids at the pool.
    The thoughts of my crotch and bum in a bikini, or basically walking around in something that resembles underwear. Nope! I just couldn't do it.
    This is a good compromise I think.
    And anyway, it has short sleeves!

    I wouldn't wear it personally as I'm comfortable in a boy leg one piece. Cover my tummy and hips and bum I feel ok.
    We take DD swimming and one day there was a mum there with the pants like your pic with a normal one piece swimsuit up top. I just assumed she wasn't comfortable with her legs on show. Whatever makes you feel comfortable I don't think anyone would care/notice too much.
