I understood that they wear it to attract the attention of men, but is it not embarrassing flaunting your underwear in the water? What ever happened to one pieces? They weren't just skin-tight, but they emphasized the girl's personality, and she could make it come off as whatever she wanted it to be: cute, childish, elegant, tomboyish, etc. WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM? WHERE DID THEY GO? I DO NOT KNOW!
Why do most girls wear bikinis?
What Girls Said 16
Bikinis are the only thing available. And one pieces are seen as childish imo. That or one pieces are for old ladies or bigger girls
What about guys? Aren't you embarrassed being in the equivilant of boxers?1
I know, I'm not a fan either but it's just standard these days. One pieces look odd, so you don't wear them. On the upside bikinis like this are becoming more in style again
Females do not wear bikinis to impress men.
They are comfortable, super easy to mix and match, often cheaper than a one piece, allow for better tan lines (no one wants a pale belly with the rest of your body tan), easier to remove to go to the washroom, and actually sometimes more flattering than one pieces (for HER to feel confident, not for her to attract men).
I wear bikinis because I'm tall, when a one piece fits in width, it is too short in length (as well as the other reasons).0
Personally i hate bikinis im the one out of my friends who wears a one piece, i feel too exposed in them1
i honestly think its a trend thing like how back then full body suits were the bomb diggity lol like now high waisted swimming bottoms are coming back in style for females. I personally like bikinis but im never confident enough to strut in them but it was the only thing i could wear because the majority of stores only sold bikinis and the full body suits were hideous. but now that there are swimwear with more coverage im buying those stuff. so in my opinion its just the hype0
I just feel good in a bikini. I feel free and it's comfortable on me. I feel restricted in one-pieces and I don't like how they feel. I don't wear bikinis to get attention, I just feel good in them. The human body shouldn't be so sexualized. It's beautiful.1
I wear a one piece because I go swimming and with big boobs I would never trust a bikini to keep them in properly. I have a really cool 1950's style halterneck one which is incredibly flattering so I don't have to be self conscious at all. I don't quite understand why women are so funny about underwear being seen when they parade around in beach underwear in the summer... puzzles me greatly.0
- Show AllShow Less
1. Easier when going to toilet
2. More comfortable
4. They can look just as classy and cute
5. Bikinis can look personal
And there are still a lot of one pieces
Also bikinis aren't underwear and aren't one pieces kinda to show off to guys too?1
Plenty of girls wear bikinis to impress men. That's not the sole reason, obviously - we wear them to get a good tan, because it's more comfortable, and one-pieces just look hideous on some people. I'm not really sure why guys are complaining to be honest, lol.0
For me, it's because it's hard to find a one piece that fits well vertically.0
I live in a womanizing culture where no one gives a fuck about my personality. I've got to be hot to survive approval or I'm worthless in this male-dominant civilization.0
I'm a girl and I personally hate wearing those flimsy peices of fabric. But then again, I'm generally quite quiet and I dislike showing too much skin. I love my swim suit, and omg I loved doing the bubbles thing with my suit when I was younger (not that I still do at all, I promise *cough, cough* aha).0

I agree that not everything girls do is to attract attention from men. But girls wearing bikinis is one of the things that women do to attract attention from men. Wearing bikinis kind of make them feel a bit empowering that they are showing off their skin. They see a lot of models wearing bikinis in magazines, TV, movies and girls want to do the same to feel more resemblance to models. Of course, there are circumstances where girls wear bikinis for tanning purposes.0
Why complain, if girls want to wear underwear (bikinis) in public, more power to them!1
Personally I find the monokini the best, most attractive option0
Because it's comfortable to them and makes them feel sexy.1
It's the same reason why women traded dresses and long skirts for short-shorts, short skirts, and skin-tight jeans. Women's liberation and the sexual revolution and all that. People used to swim naked. By the 1800s in particular, it was the norm to cover up on the beach (the Victorian era).
The only reason that nakedness is considered sexual is because people started covering up. By making the naked body shameful, it becomes a taboo which makes it titillating.2
