What type of swimwear do you like to wear when at the pool / beach?

Since the warm season is coming I found this a fitting question to ask. :)

*be specific as to color/design, one/two piece, trunks/speedos, etc.

*feel free to differentiate what you wear at a "family" atmosphere versus a "no kids allowed" atmosphere

--------------------

I usually wear basketball shorts (they're more comfy imo), and they are usually either blue or light gray in color.

Now it's your turn to answer. :)

P.S. Anonym is allowed for obvious reasons so don't be shy. :)

  • I have a couple of bikinis. The one I wear most is a strapless top and regular bottoms. Both pieces have three stripes of two shades of brown and white. The other one is a regular triangle tie top and bottom--green with a black paisley kind of pattern.

  • Old Navy One piece!

    I have this swimsuit in three colors, Black, Navy and Green. And I can't wait to buy another one this year! It's the perfect swimsuit for me, because I have a long torso and it's the only one long enough.

    If I had more options, I would go for a retro looking swimsuit. But unfortunately they don't make ones that would work for me haha.

  • I've only been to a beach once in my life and I was like 5 or 6. But at the pool I wear bikinis...this one to be exact:p link (in "berrygloss"). Because well...I like bikinis, and pink is the best color in the world.

  • I like neon on black as far as colors go, typically in an abstract pattern.

    I haven't been able to find a one-piece suit that I like in years as far as the way they fit (I blame my body type) so I have to mix and match bikini tops and bottoms.

    I have a string bikini, black with multicolor neon "paint" splatters. I also have two halter top bikinis, both black with multicolor neon patterns (are we seeing a trend here?). One has little stars all over and the other has sort of abstract-looking words all over it.

  • I tend to avoid those situations at all costs. I'm just not confident walking around with pretty much everything on show - in a one piece or a bikini. So yeah - I'll just wear ... beachy clothes to the beach; and not really go in the sea all that much.

  • Bikini. But not one of those "bare all" bikinis. The one I have now is pretty modest and not skanky or anything like that at all, but at the same time it's still an awesome bikini. So I get the best of both worlds :). I really love monokinis though; actually when I went shopping for a new swimsuit that was the style that I tried to hunt down since it was my number one choice, but they're so hard to find where I live, so I settled with a navy and white bikini.

    Although for awhile now I've been looking for a one-piece like Marilyn Monroe had; I think that style is just gorgeous and really flattering on a lot of girls.

    • i love to go to a nude beach or nudist resort so I don't have to worrie about getting arested :)

  • I actually have a few different swimsuits - I have a one piece, two bikinis, and a tankini and boy shorts set. The tankini one is my favorite because it's easy to swim in (like I can go crazy and not worry about anything being exposed) and it looks great. This is the one I have, except the shorts are just a solid green color: link

    I like kind of simple bikinis, not too flashy, not too "oooh look at me" but sort of simple and just right. The brand can be any brand, as long as I like the bikini. I like to have bikinis in cyan, ( link )

    but I do like black and blue and green and purple.

  • This is the one I have: link

    Just a white bikini with clear beading on the top, and beading connecting one side of the bottom.

    I like wearing white in the summer. Something just seems so fresh and clean about it. :]

    The beading sparkles on the one I have so it's a nice touch. ^-^

    I'd where it to the typical family friendly beach since that's the only ones I go to. :P

    Only beaches I ever go to Are the ones in Mexico. So usually topless if I'm with my friends Or boyfriend and not my family. Whether or not there's kids.

  • A two-piece bikini, usually with thong-bottom, since I find them more comfortable and also for tanning reasons.

  • A 2 piece Bandeau style. Color depends on the year before. If I had a dark one last year, I'll switch it up and get a light color and vice versa. Some patterns like polka-dots are OK but I usually stick with a solid color.

  • if I'm at home or a friends pool, I tan nude. if in public, I wear as little as possible. I hate tan lines, so its easier to get rid of them if I'm in a skimpy bikini.

  • I usually wear skirt bikinis.

    I like all colors.

    So it doesn't really matter.

    The beach is the one place where you can be half naked and no one can say anything. :D

  • I'm a pretty chill person, so for me the beach isn't a place to like go with my hair blown out and makeup and a tight strapless bikini.

    Whenever I go to the beach/pool I'll wear a bikini with a halter top. over top I'll wear jeans shorts and a loose tank top and flip flops. usually hair in a ponytail (too hot to keep my hair down). I also surf sometimes so my swimsuits are halters so they won't fall off haha.

  • My girlfriend has a history of loosing me on the beach and for this reason I now longer wear swim trunks. This way if we get separated, she just has to look in the sand for two footprints and a drag mark.
