    I wouldn't want to wear the long leggings in your photo, but I usually wear a long sleeve rashie with board shorts.

    For two reasons - I don't want to get sunburnt plus I'm overweight and self conscious.

    I didn't realise you could get swim leggings - I want some!! I love to take a hiatus from shaving my legs through winter but don't get to as I still need to be in the pool for DS's swimming lessons.

    I looked at triathlon type suits a while ago for this reason but they are too "made for sport". I like a tankini with some ruching over the gut and would wear that with those leggings.

    They would also be awesome at the beach (maybe bit hot in black) to maintain my pasty whiteness!

    No I wouldn't wear that. I am very comfortable in a bikini, and would feel way more self conscious about wearing that, than what I would in a bikini.
    There's nothing wrong with it, though...minus the major camel toe in the pic.

    Default Opinions Please:)

    The main issue I have with bikini bottoms is they are so tiny these days I tend to find it doesn't really cover my pubes? Unless I've trimmed/used cream that day I have little spiders crawling out......Or do I just have excess pubic hair?!?

    So I have to wear board shorts to avoid this.

    Personally op I see nothing wrong with those pants. I wouldn't even give you a second glance.

    Eta: and you wouldn't have to worry about shaving your legs! Bonus!

    honestly - wear whatever you feel comfortable in

    if you want something along those lines - google stinger suit ... in Far North Queensland where stingers and jellyfish are a problem, they all wear them

    FWIW I got my long sleeve rashie from the Cancer Council.

    The fabric is very light and easy to wear. It is also chlorine resistant and lasts for ages so worth the initial high price tag.

    I've had a look and they don't sell long leggings, but they do stock boardies that look like they would go below the knee:

    Not something I'm into, but I would look, possibly think you were a) Muslim b) a good swimmer and the thought would be gone.

    I tend to like boy leg with bikini top/tankini or swim shorts as I have uber sensitive skin and wearing normal bikini bottoms or one piece shows shaving rash :/ I also think it's the type of material rubbing on freshly shaved/waxed skin that makes it way worse.

    I wouldn't wear it, sorry.

    Being totally honest, I think I'd do a double take the first time I saw someone wear it, but I'd quite quickly get over it, like in 30 seconds or so!!

    Seriously though, and this is for all the ladies out there who are self conscious...

    I don't have a perfect body, but I can't complain either.

    However, TRUST ME. No one is checking you out or judging you, no matter what size. Go out, be confident and have fun!!!

    I'm another who says wear whatever makes you feel comfortable Op.
    I'm usually too worried about how I look to worry about what anyone else is doing!

    No I wouldn't because it wouldn't suit my body and I would feel out of place even if I could wear something like that.
