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.

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!

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.
