What body types can wear a bikini and be attractive? I'm 5'2", have an athletic build and have an average amount of fat. Do you girls think I should wear a bikini to a pool party or do you have other suggestions? And guys, what's your opinion on body types and swimsuits?
Any body type is at liberty to wear a bikini. That being said, people who are severely overweight (or lost a lot of weight and have sagging excess skin) should be cautious of wearing them simply because society sucks and they'll probably get harassed for it. Also, another thing: if you're going to wear a bikini, prepare to have your body judged. Regardless of your body type, if you're going to put it out there like that, people will critique it. If you're okay with that, then by all means flaunt it. If not, then I'd recommend a more conservative type bathing suit. :)
I think that the only body type that doesn't look good in a bikini is one with excess fat around the waist/middle. A person with a flat or toned midsection looks best in one. Since a bikini puts your midsection on display, to me it emphasizes it, so if you have a flabby or unshapely waist then it doesn't look good.
Bikinis look good on women who are in shape You don't have to be super slim to wear one but I think a person should be at their ideal weight. depending on the body type woman prefer to lose a little bit more weight for a bikini but that is personal preference.
I have an hour glass shape naturally so when I'm overweight or if I gain weight it's important for me to lose some weight because I want to lose it evenly all over my body for a bikini.
at the same time it does not look good on a chubby woman or a woman who is overweight I guess it depends on height.
