I have seen many women topless on the beach overseas, France, Italy, Tahitii. it has never bothered me, but for the worry of skin cancers. some of the women I saw were quite old and had obviously been going topless for years. really it was not a nice sight. actually the skin was so brown, you could see nothing. even the shape of the breast seemed to disappear. I didn't think I would like to see this to catch on in Australia. breast cancer numbers are bad enough, let alone getting skin cancer on the breast. oh boy. marie.

I would never, but honestly, I wouldn't even wear a bikini to the beach. It's only the last year or two I have even worn a 1 piece instead of big board shorts and a Tshirt. I'm just not comfortable being that undressed. Not really a modesty thing, as I don't even like it when home by myself. It's just uncomfortable in general. I can't even wear loose tshirts without a singlet underneath.

I have gone topless and also nude at nudist beaches overseas, where it was really common. It felt quite liberating, and I did it as a bit of a challenge to myself.But I wouldn't do it here on normal beaches in Aus (and I probably wouldn't go to a nudey beach here either). Theres a Time and a place...

Here in Australia I would be less likely to as it is just not the norm that it is in Europe for whatever reason and I know I would be making people feel uncomfortable for no reason then I want to take my top off ( unlike BF and a baby needs to be fed). If I did I would judge the environment I was in first- (unlike the backpackers that were are out local, kids waterfun park one year).
I would also be less likely to these days as my boobs hang somewhere down near my belly-button

I have only seen women topless a few times and while I've done a double take it's mostly because it's not something you see a lot, not because I'm offended or think they shouldn't. To be fair I saw a woman topless a few weeks ago and looked twice because I was more impressed with how utterly perfect her boobs were TBH.
I never have because I avoid the sun like the plague. I was also too embarrassed about how small they were before kids and now I'm too embarrassed about how horrid they are after kids.
Couldn't care less whether other people do.

I did in my teenage days a couple times on secluded beaches, but I wouldn't now I don't sunbake as scared of skin cancer etc. I occasionally skinny dip in my own pool but that's in the privacy of my backyard and never in full sun.

I think I might've a couple of times in my late teens/early 20s. I don't know why and I cringe now at the idea of unknown men leering at my boobs.
no way would I do it now. I'm very private nowadays and would feel like a piece of meat having men I don't know look at me. I'm sure they have better things to look at than 35 year old boobs though😂

Seen it many times, but don't bat an eyelid (unless the kids are in tow).
In my younger days I used to undo my bikini top so I would have no strap marks, but I was always lying on my belly, never exposed and these days I usually wear a rashie because of my moles etc.
My thoughts (these days) when I see it, is usually from a sun smart standpoint, as in , I think ooooh, that's a sensitive area to expose etc!
