Just wondering what the general consensus is nowadays. Just to be clear, I'm not talking about this:
(Although that confidence is rockin' and I am so totally jealous!)
I'm talking more along the lines of this:
I mean, the way I see it, most of us females aren't out there so we can stand around and be eye candy for everyone, we're just out to have fun and get nice tan lines. So many people say overweight women need to wear coverups and one piece swimsuits, but the thing is that those women don't owe anyone anything- especially not dressing according to another person's tastes. I don't know, that's just my ¢2.
I think it's more, you either go to the beach or you don't. A one piece swimming suit wouldn't really make much of a difference in such cases (and indeed in most cases I don't think it hides that much...), so if you decide going to the beach, you better get a nice tan.
On one side I say you are free to wear whatever you want. It your body and if you feel good wearing it, why not?
On another side, I don't like seeing overweight girl in bikini, they are not playing to their "strength" , you feel me? It like coming to an interview and say you hate working with other people. Most would appreciate the honesty and confident but you probably not gonna get hired for the jobs.
The girl in the second picture would be hot if she lost 75 lbs
I'd rather not see it but they can do whatever they want to
When I can have my stretched ears and other piercings and not. be judged for it bc it's my body then I won't have anything to say about qhat other people wear. How does a tiny piece of metal magically change my intelligence?
It's totally chill. I think everyone should wear whatever they want. What bugs me, though, is that many women feel pressured to wear a bikini, even though they 'd like to wear something else. I mean I usually prefer a bra top with high rise bottom and I'd like to find a cool bodysuit style swimsuit, something with bare back or see-through details or an interesting cut. But in most stores they only sell bikinis. Sometimes I hear people say that only older or overweight women wear one-pieces or high-waisted bottoms instead of bikinis, and I just don't get it.
I have always been larger so I have never had the guts to wear a bikini even though you could compare me to the size of the second woman. I don't have the confidence but she looks good. I think that is partially because she is confident. Confidence radiates beauty. The way I see it - do what you want to do. Dress how you want to dress. If you scar everyone at the beach it's not your problem... In other words LΣT TΉΣ ΉΛTΣЯS ΉΛTΣ... That's all they want to do anyways
The second girl looks fine to me, she doesn't even seem that overweight to me. I was actually just telling my friend earlier that i'm so tired of seeing curvier women wear the most hideous bikinis/outfits online, why can't they show off and wear things that flatter their shape instead of hiding it so much.
I voted B. Just because I may not particularly wanna see it (in all honesty, I don't like stomachs nor belly buttons, I'm weird I know. So I'd rather everyone cover up, skinny or fat, male or female), doesn't mean I'd stop them. If I don't like it, I can just look away. Fat people wearing certain clothing that doesn't fit them is not harming me just like skinny people wearing clothes that doesn't fit them doesn't harm me.
Personally, I am not comfortable with ever wearing a bikini. I wear "tankinis" but with a skirt/shorts bottom, never a bikini bottom. My sister thinks I dress like a grandma lol Kudos to the women with confidence, big or small, to wear that.
That girl is not overweight. She is normal. Super skinny supermodels are what you are comparing her to and she is perfectly fine and beautiful. If you compare your body to girls like Ariana Grande and Cover Girls, of course you'll think you're fat, but that is not how nature intended us to be.
Okay, so I am a big woman. And I don't want to see that top lady on the beach. I think there is a point when even with confidence its not good. The second picture is good. If a BBW lady is proportionate and fit then more power to her. But if you are large and flabby please don't.
I agree with you code3, there is nothing wrong for this lady to be in bikinis, and as you said, she probably doesn't get a chance to get out in the sun, so its a great way for her to get some vitamin D and the only place to get that in your system is through your stomach... and really, she doesn't look that bad anyway... yep and if you don't like it, don't look... simple as that... there are a lot of blokes in speedos with lots of guff hanging out lol!! lol!!
The one in the 2nd pic looks fine, she just has curves. I always say they make bikinis in those sizes for a reason, people wear them. If i looked like the first one however, I wouldn't wear that out in public. It's kind of humiliating.
I think people should be able to wear whatever they want... simply because its their body and they have freedom. As long as they are comfortable with themselves they shouldn't worry about "what people are gonna think".
