Three of my girlfriends and I are planning a trip down to mexico to relax on the beach. This weekend we were together talking about details and one of the girls suggested we all wear thong bikinis. Before I could say anything the other two chimed in and backed the idea. I told them that I didn't feel comfortable wearing a thong bikini (I mean bikinis are already pretty revealing) one of my friends suggested a one-piece thong bathing suit so I could still fit in with the group and have my cheeks exposed but have a bit more coverage. I am more open to the idea of wearing a one-piece thong bathing suit but I am not quite sure. Ladies if you were in my position and didn't want to wear a thong bikini, would a one-piece thong be a compromise you would make?
Similar to what my friends will be wearing:

No it wouldn't make a difference, I don't want a thong bathing suit at all. I am wearing a traditional bikini

I would just suck it up and wear the thong bikini like my friends were doing
TBH why do they have to wear all 'matching' suits in the first place? What is this? You guys are all individuals, and if they want to wear thongs that's fine. But don't feel pressured to wearing thongs just because they are and they want it to be a 'thing'. I just don't get why some people do this. Why do we have to make stuff into a 'thing'? Why?
I would wear the bathing suit you feel most comfortable in and that you feel you look best in. Don't wear something just because other people want you to fit in :)
I know, I know, you want girls' opinions, but I may have a solution. Take a thong bikini but also take a back-up bikini/swimsuit, or even bikini bottom, that you are comfortable with... when it comes to the crunch and you aren't sure you can go through with it, just put on the back-up and tell your friends that something must've happened to the thong you were wanting to wear...
I would wear the longer bathing suit because in a foreign country your chances of getting raped and killed are much higher than they are where you currently live. I am not saying a thong is ugly but it puts you in danger of unwanted attention from dangerous men. Gentleman don't need you to reveal everything to be interested but the dangerous ones will gravitate towards you if you dress in too revealing clothes.
