Bathing suits….

    What kind do you wear?? I’m contemplating a bikini but I feel so uncomfortable wearing it in front of people. My husband says I’m crazy because I’m in the best shape of my life right now! I’ve been running and working out almost ever day to train for a half marathon. I wear board shorts bottoms and usually a tankini but am wanting to try a bikini top instead. I’ve never been comfortable in a 2 piece really but with shorts I may be. I also don’t want my daughter seeing me uncomfortable in my own skin because I want her to grow up to be confident in her skin- whatever it may be!

    Could get a bikini bottom with both a tankini and bikini top and wear the bikini top around the house only, like laying out in the backyard or if you have a pool. Like a trial for the bikini top. See if you get comfortable enough to wear it in public. If not, you have the matching tankini to wear in public.

    I wear a one piece. I prefer a tankini (for bathroom purposes), but find it difficult to find a pattern I like in a supportive cut for my breasts.

    I say go with what makes you feel comfortable. If you don’t like wearing a bikini, don’t wear one. I think it’s more important to teach our daughters to do what feels right to them rather than feel pressured to do what we’re not comfortable doing. I’ve never been hugely comfortable with them, even when I was in great shape. I always preferred tankinis. Now I typically wear a one-piece.

    I agree with Magster. I’ve never been comfortable in a bikini top either and I don’t think you should feel like you have to show more skin to model confidence. I used to wear a one-piece but now I wear a tankini with little board shorts, too.

    I used to wear regular bikini tops, now I wear tankini. I bought a regular bikini last summer that’s never been worn. I know, logically, that I could. My body is normal sized…but I used to be so thin being normal sized makes me feel huge.

    I don’t wear one pieces because, even though I’m not overly tall, I have a long torso and the straps dig into my shoulders.

    I second the suggestion of getting a bikini and tankini to match your bottoms so you have a back up if you decide you are uncomfortable. I also suggest maybe getting a bandeau style top instead of a triangle top. I always preferred those because I wasn’t worried about it moving out of place.
