I’m of the ‘you do you’ philosophy, think of that song from the greatest showman. “This is me”.
I feel like you should wear what you feel confident wearing. If you feel confident in a bikini, wear it, if you prefer a one piece, rock that. There are some really sexy one pieces out there. Ignore haters, but also be appropriate in that you’re swimsuit should fit you. If it isn’t a nude/topless beach, your swimsuit should not be a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen, aka, try to avoid nip slips if possible.
above all , you should be able to enjoy yourself without worrying.
I wore a bikini when I was around a size 8-10, but I’ve always carried most of my weight in my hips and thighs with a smaller stomach. I still had a flat stomach at a size 8-10. Now I’m closer to a size 14 and I won’t wear a bikini anymore because I’m a little pudgy around the middle.
I haven’t worn a bikini since I was 20. I do have some two pieces that are not bikinis. That is my preference. I like to do lots of swimming and I find bikinis aren’t convenient for that. I think a two piece is most comfortable.
I have bikinis and one pieces and I’m plus size. I’m also tall, so a high waisted bikini is a much better fit on me than a one piece. I don’t care what someone wears at the pool or beach as long as all their bits are covered. Heck go topless if you want to, I just prefer if a female goes topless to put on a top if she’s in an area where it would be considered inappropriate like a restaurant, bar or amusement park.
I love my vintage style high waisted bikinis, they’re comfortable I find them fairly flattering, yeah I’m sure my cellulite and stretch marks show, but most women have those so whatever.
I think anyone can rock a bikini, no matter what size!
That being said, I’m a size 2 or 4 (depending on the brand), and I actually prefer one-pieces! So much comfier and don’t need to worry about the top riding up or bottoms falling down. And there are so many cute one piece swimsuits out there right now! My favourite is from Frankie’s Bikinis 🙂
I feel bikini ready at a size 12 lol. I am busty and have big thighs/legs. I am probably a 14 or 16 and not feeling it right now… mostly because I don’t feel healthy… not unattractive. It is the blah I am bloated and out of breath feeling that gets to me.
Only thing that bothers me is my tummy. So I get high waisted bottoms.
I think it’s up to the individual person and their comfort level. I’ve never worn a one piece my entire adult life and I’m 25. I’m also 6’1 so yeah that makes it harder…I’m a size 6 but even if I were larger I’d probably still wear at least a tankini or whatever that thing is called.
I always feel bikini ready, to be honest. I’m definitely plus size but even at my biggest (190) I still wore a bikini. I hate one pieces, they are uncomfortable and I feel like many are much more unflattering than just showing some extra skin. Maybe I’m just weird but I feel more confident about how I look the less I’m wearing.
I’ve never been able to wear a bikini as far as with regular bottoms…but I feel okay wearing a super high waisted skirted bottom and bikini top. I only wear skirted swimwear because I am extremely uncomfortable with my cellulite on my butt & thighs and I have to have that covered. When I’m my normal weight (size 8) I can wear a lower skirt bottom that shows off my stomach but right now since I’ve gained weight, nope. I don’t even want to think about getting in any sort of swimsuit until I’ve lost a good bit.
Being so particular about having a longer skirted bottom reallllly limits my swimsuit choices.
