    Hey, one piece, tankini, bikini–there are cute options for all of these styles.  Just find a color that does not wash you out, and maybe apply some light bronzer?  They have those lotions that give you a bit of color over time.  I’ve heard good things.  Enjoy the sun, it’s your honeymoon!

    I rock the bikini…but I think that what matters is that you wear something YOU are comfortable in. I definitely see people in tankinis still.

    Other. Bikini Top and Board Shorts 🙂 Sometimes a rash guard. Depends on how much sun exposure I want. For my honeymoon I’ll prob. stick to “short” board shorts. lol.

    I like cute retro looking one-pieces. I have chub, but I don’t want to feel like a grandma either! I think it’s best to wear whatever you are comfortable. PinUpGirlClothing.com has really cute ones.

    i wear a tankini, as i have religious/modesy issues with bikinis. i find tankinis to be a little more flattering than one pieces, so that’s the route i go. i’ve found they have much cuter tankinis nowadays. it used to be so frustrating that only bikinis came in cute patterns, but i’ve found some really cute ones in the past couple of years. 🙂

    I wear a bikini but I don’t like walking around like that, so I wear a cover-up until I get to my spot on the beach and then I strip down.

    I got a spray on tan for my honeymoon.  If you’re in the water a lot the color fades quickly but I didn’t look so pale.  Takinis are cute or like me I wore a bikini with a Victoriat’s Secret tank top on the beach and a hat because I tend to sunburn.

    I had my gall bladder removed a couple years ago, which left me with four scars on my abdomen. Needless to say, I stick to a one-piece… I also have a larger chest and have issues finding a supportive bikini top. I actually think a good one-piece can be just as sexy as any swimsuit.. 🙂

    I wore a bikini, but I always wore a sundress over it.  I didn’t just walk around in a bikini!  (Probably for the same reasons that you have!)  VS has some great dresses to wear, and you don’t stick out at all!

    I only buy bikinis-always from J Crew. I usually buy one or two a year.
