I'm a burn survivor and was burned on a little over 35% of my body should I be worried about wearing a bikini on the beach?

  • It really depends. If you feel comfortable in your own body, please don't make anything or anyone hide it. Be proud of your body. If you're comfortable show the world that you DID survive and you can be beautiful no matter your past! You could be a great example for many people that are uncertain about the way they look.

    Yes you will have people lookong at you, and they better be jealous that you have the balls and confidence, that you feel ok in your body.

    Do what feels right, For you. And don't let anyone else tell you you're wrong, if it is right, For you.

    • It isn't the scars. It's she's much more likely to develop skin cancer now

    • @reptocarl I'm only a year out and have sever Anxiety

    • It'll be ok. Nobody ever laughs at me. Some ask about the accident but most never say a thing. Again you survived a horrible accident. Those remind you of how strong you are

  • You shouldn't be self conscious about something you can't help. Remember you're beautiful and the only opinion of you that matters is your opinion of yourself. On the other hand, definitely ask your doctor if that's alright, considering all the UV radiation you'd be absorbing.

    • It isn't the scars. It's burn victims don't have any natural protection anymore and are extremely susceptible to skin cancer

    • You should be more concerned about the skin cancer. This is very real for us burn victims. Don't risk it

    • @reptocarl omg yes I know I get it I'm o no the lake every weekend so chill

  • You shouldn't. The most important thing in life is that you feel comfortable in your body. Another good thing to learn: if you are not emotionally invested in someone (i. e. strangers) you dont have to care about their opinion ;). They will look, as is also natural (you dont get to see someone who is a little different everyday, so you automatically look) but you should be confident and not be bothered :).

  • Me too at 20% of mine and do not wear a bikini. You are extremely susceptible to skin cancer now. All of your natural protection is burned away. I have to be checked by a dr every 6 months now for skin cancer. Stay covered up. That tan will kill you

  • No, don't live your life worried about what others may think. Be happy and confident.

    I know my situation is less frightening than yours but I have stretch marks all over my bum, my hips, most of my left and right thighs, parts of the rest of my leg, parts of my arms, and parts of my back and they are pretty prominent (had them since I was 15 due to strong medication to help with a chronic illness) I wear bikinis, shorts anything I want. Sure some people stare, and lots of people ask questions but it's fine.

    You'll be fine too. You'll find most people won't judge you harshly, and if they do, thank god those shitty people will stay the hell away from you!
