Ok bees, we’re off on a short break with his folks. I’ve bought a classic black bikini, which is pretty skimpy even by my standards but I love it.
The thing is, his mother is VERY conservative. I know she’ll flip out when she sees me in it. So now I’m having second thoughts. Do I be a peacemaker and go for a more modest one-piece in swimming style? Or do I just wear it and face the consequences?

It sucks, but if it were me, I would just wear the more modest one. It just depends if you are going to feel uncomfortable being around her while in your teeny bikini.

Is his mom the type to make her opinion of your attire known and ensure everyone feels awkward and uncomfortable because she feels you’re not dressed properly? Bathing suits are revealing, there’s really no getting away from that. To keep the peace I’d probably wear something less skimpy and save the tiny bikini for a holiday without her. Perhaps you can wear a tankini or a bikini that covers a bit more?
If she’s conservative in her own attire and choices but doesn’t expect others to be or pass judgement then I’d wear it and enjoy myself! Perhaps take a cover up anyway!

Save it for your girlfriends, it sucks that you can’t wear your new bikini but she’s not going to appreciate it so save it for people who will!

I would just wear something more modest. You can always wear your skimpy bikini another time

I think the question is: Do you want a reaction from her or not? Because you know SHE is going to comment on it.
If you want her to comment on it, then go ahead and wear it.
If you don’t want to cause that kind of trouble, then don’t wear it.

Personally, I’m not confidant enough to rock a bikini. But even if you are, if you know it will cause waves, perhaps a more modest two piece? There is still a difference between a string, thong bikini and just a regular bikini or even a “tankini” that aren’t as uncomfortable as a one piece but more modest for your Mother-In-Law. Personally, if you know it will be an issue, I don’t think a bikini is a place to cause an issue.

I say wear it if you want and just bring a beach wrap or something.

Well if I were you, I would not wear a skimpy one. I’d wear something cute and in more conservative style. You know one-piece styles are in fashion right now. I think “IMAGE” is important. I would like to be seen as a lovely lady in front of older folks or children. You can save your hot bikini for your girls gataway or vacation with only your SO.

I wouldn’t wear the skimpy bikini but I also wouldn’t go all the way to a one-piece suit. Bet a more modest bikini or a tankini or something that you will still find cute and comfortable but your Mother-In-Law won’t find so inappropriate.

I would probably go towards keeping the peace, but I would not go as far as to wear a full one piece. I would probably go for a bikini that covers a little bit more. There’s nothing wrong with a bikini… just make sure that the bottoms cover your bum, and that you’re not spilling out of the top.

My SO’s mom is ok with barely bikinis, but I personally just feel weird when I wear them around his family. I’d rather be confident in what I’m wearing and know that I’m not ruffling feathers than be second guessing my attire all the time.

Are we talking thong and barely nip covering top? If so, I would leave it at home. Maybe if you posted a picture of it or something similar we could help better.

There are so many cute, more conservative swimsuits out there. I think you can find a happy medium and save the tiny bikini for a time when you can really strut your stuff!

Go for something more in the middle!
