I am heading to Vegas tomorrow (bachelorette festivities…yay!), and I was wondering how YOU like to wear your swimsuits?
1) Do you like to cover your cheeks completely?
2) Do you typically show a little bit of the cheeks (because we all know it’s incredibly hard to keep that swimsuit in place!)?
Or do you go all out, literally?
I am just curious to hear how the majority of women like to wear their bathing suits. Even though I have a fit body type, I am generally more conservative in nature and would say I stick to styles closer to the first picture. I do have a few swimsuits that fall closer to the second catogory, though!
I can’t wait to hear what you think!

I always buy bikinis with a bottom like the top picture you posted. I love hipster bottoms and think they are so flattering on most people! I can’t stand when the bottoms don’t actually cover my butt – and like you, I’m a pretty fit person as well. I’d say on the vast majority of women, the bottom two pictures are absolutely not flattering – the bottom picture much more so than the middle picture. Unless you are one of the super blessed women on the planet who have no cellulite and a perfectly tanned and toned rear end, butts hanging out of bikini bottoms is just not a good look.

When I saw “go all out” in the poll, I thought you may have been referring to a thong or something! Lol! Personally, I side with the OP on more conservative bottoms…but hey!…it’s your bachelorette weekend! Go wild! 😉

I love the cheeky fit from Vicoria Secret. So… a little more hanging out. Wider sides; but only shmedium bum coverage is the most flattering fit for me.
But I have skier’s bum.

I cover it all. I am not really a fan of any of the above pictures. I always get the shorts kind of bathing suits or wear shorts with my bathing suit.

Um considering I don’t have a body like any of those women I opt for board shorts at ALL times when in a bathing suit. I enjoy maximum coverage and I’m sure those around me do as well.

I wish I was brave enough to go with one of those styles!! My bikinis all have the little “boy shorts” thing going on with them…I’m all covered and won’t leave the house in less than!!!

Oh dear..and I just realized that in that second picture, all I can think of is “saggy, wet diaper.” and that woman is in much better shape than me…the world thanks me for not wearing saggy diaper bikinis…

Hmm. I buy them to cover me up but I am not sure if some cheeks hang out or not. Oops! Maybe I should check from now on? lol

My bigger problem is my boobs. I have a hard time finding a bathing suit large enough to cover my chest enough, so once I find a top, I don’t really care about the bottoms. I only have 2 bathing suits that fit (and one the top is pretty small). One has boy shorts for matching bottoms, so full coverage, the other lets it all out.

I’m not down with wearing basically just my underwear in public so I buy bikini bottoms but I always wear a cute lttle pair of board shorts over them.

@Ivorybuttons: Now I am curious: What is skiers bum?

I wear bottoms like the first picture, however, I consider this letting “a little bit of cheeks hang out”. For me “cover them up as much as possible!” would be like a skirt or the short ones that go like an inch done the leg (think vintage pin up). None the less, I voted one. Fun thread!
