I'm having a lot of issues with swimwear this summer. I'm not really fat, but I don't have the greatest body to look at either. I'm only 4'11'' and weigh 120ish pounds. I've put on a little weight this year, more than usual, on my stomach and thighs and I'm pretty self-conscious about them. They are not attractive. I also have this freakish hair problem on my stomach, an abnormal amount. So, I wanted to wear a one-piece swim suit to cover my(I'll wax it only as a last resort) stomach. But then I feel like I'm covering up too much (nobody else my age wears one pieces- I'm 17) and feel kinda grandmaish and more self-conscious. If I wear the bikini, I feel like I look really bad and people will think I don't know it because I'm wearing a bikini. What's the solution here? Don't go swimming? lol
(Btw, I have been exercising and eating better and all to get into better shape, but I need to wear something until I feel comfortable with my body again.)
What I was really asking is it better to wear the bikini and not look that great or wear the one piece and seem prudish?

You should feel confident about your body. beleive it or not not most guys are attracted to "average women". You do not have to be perfect. perfectionism is a turn off to most guys. I once had a friend invite me swimming. she was a big girl and she came out with a bikini and I was so turned on, that to this day I can still picture her. as for your hairy belly, hey that makes you different and stand out from all the rest of the girls. If I were your BF, I would respect that and it would actully be a turn on to me. Just be yourself and flaunt your beatiful body in you bikini!1
