When in Rome..on a public beach, it's generally just not accepted in the US. I mean, it's not illegal, but you'll get a lot of guys coming up and giving you their numbers, and so forth, as you no doubt have discovered, because they assume you are 'advertising' you availability. Your boyfriend will get in a lot of fights if you do this in public. On someone's boat, among friends, it's fine...but you will find some girls get very jealous because of the attention you'll get from their boyfriends!
Sorry it's this way. I understand how it must frustrate you. It's similar in Venezuela where my wife is from, and she eventually had to cover up a little on beaches here, just for the sake of peace on the beach!20
I also love thongs at the beach. Because of my job I'm always traveling and when I bleep in Cancun for example I can go to the beach with my thing and topples. That's the same in Hawaii and some beaches of California, not topless but wearing thongs. Even in Florida like you said. I've been to Puerto Escondido, Mexico and there you can go swimming naked and that's great. Highly recommended. Lol60
Here in Europe we are open to the idea of thongs on beaches, but they are not too common on most beaches, however topless can be really common. I think you should be able to wear whatever you want on a beach, as long as your vagina is covered unless it is a nude beach.20
I love wearing thong bikinis to the beach.
I get so much attention and feel fabulous!!
Not the most practical tho, get too much sand in my bum and vagina. My most common is a 1 piece.40
People are used to covering up and not baring their sensual parts, unless they have a good looking body themselves.0
What Girls & Guys Said
I agree with you. Thong bikinis on girls, especially in Florida, really shouldn't even be that big of a deal anymore. As long as you are on the beach just minding your own business, and NOT "twerking" or doing anything else to draw unnecessary attention to yourself, you should be fine. I see girls at waterparks wearing either thong, or highly cheeky, swimsuits there, and no one ever complains, even though it is often officially against waterpark dress code policy. If you just go about your business and don't draw any unnecessary attention to yourself, you should be alright. If you were to act like it was your first time ever to wear a thong bikini in public, that might draw unnecessary attention to you, but if you "own the beach," you will be fine. Looking forward to seeing your cheeks, the next time that I am at the beach, but I promise not to stare!
There are a few beaches, like Myrtle Beach in South Carolina where thongs are strictly prohibited, so I wouldn't go there if I were you, but at most other beaches, everyone is there to just relax and have a good time, so they won't be too concerned about it if a girl is showing a bit "too much" butt cheek. (But you're right; toplessness might be whole 'nother issue! Strictly forbidden on most public beaches in the U. S.)0
A woman wearing a thong bikini is an increasing trend. It's pretty obvious what factors are motivating girls/women to behave like this... yet no one states it because it would be politically incorrect to do so. It's not healthy, and sadly it is a sign of our times. It is the female equivalent of mens "little man syndrome". If a man is short or has a small penis the stereotype has him "acting out" in some extreme way as a compensatory process to make him feel CONFIDENT. Another example is when, traditionally, some men hit their partner because it makes him "feel like a man". Women, and particularly younger women / girls are simply "acting out" due to their lack of self-esteem and security. Yet, neo-feminists are supporting it.10
Wear what you want to. People may be very prudish in some countries, less in others. Even if children see a girl in a thong it is not a big deal(it would be made a huge deal). People are OK with kids see violence, and think perfectly normal for boys to fight, but they can't see a human body.30
Brazilian culture is working its way into Florida through Miami. But I think it will be a while before you don't get stares going anywhere but a clothing-optional beach.
BTW, I find the stereotypical Brazilian butt nicely contoured. link11
I agree completely. Girls gotta ditch the diaper bottoms and guys gotta ditch the dork shorts. I wear thongs at the beach. It is awsome! Now i just gotta convince my wife to thong with me...
And if you are out with friends and comfortable then they shouldn't care. I know i would wear my thong around my friends. Lol. They would care but get over it, saying i am weird.20
I think if you like wearing them you should. My girl has been on the fence about it for years so this year I am going ahead and buying her a few thong bikini sets because if she wants to wear them she shouldn't be afraid to. She has a great body so it's not like anyone would be bothered by it, she'll look great!11
Um what part of Florida? I live on the east Coast and do a lot of surfing at New Smyrna and Cocoa. Almost every beach in Florida has plenty of girls in thongs. Even a lot of guys wear skimpy swimsuits. The only people that have a problem with them are rednecks (they tend to be closed minded and have chubby/pale gf's). I can understand states in the bible belt or up in New England where everyone is a prude... but Florida? Spring Break central? Ha! Thongs are as common as palm trees down here. :)30
If I'm in public, I want to get checked out, so I always wear thongs. If you like them, who cares what others think?90
I think wearing a thong bikini is fine, especially on the beach or on a boat where it's the norm. However, I'm sure what the social rules are about going topless. I'm from England so we don't usually see topless women, even on beaches, over here. But I'm guessing in Brazil and maybe Florida things are different.10
I think it's very sexy and hope it catches on. I don't think it would be appropriate at a family oriented place but around other adults I think it's extremely sexy and nothing wrong with it.12
I don't have much of a problem with that, but in the USA expect some gawking from the guys and dirty looks from other females.30
It's a cultural difference.
I think we always stare at whatever we are used to not seeing, it's human nature.10
I completely agree as you elaborate, your forward thinking girl.
As far I see Thing bikini or Brazilian bikini are getting common and trends every where as well some Asian female wear tiny bikini too.11
sometimes i wear one... it depends where i am and who i am with... i see nothing wrong with it!20
If a girl has a great ass, the thong is always the hotter option.60
I find it incredibly sexy to see a woman with the body and confidence that's fit for wearing a thong. Keep it up! I'm a guy who wears speedos and would love to wear a thong on the beach. Times are changing!10
I think they are sexy but I don't have a nice ass for them20
i think it sjsut a cultural thing. I wouldn't wear one becuas emy butt sucks haha10
Why tell us your name then go anonymous? Just curious0
In the US a woman or girl should never wear a thong bikini, except Hawaii where men and woman can get away with that type of clothing. It's better for you to be naked than in a thong.1

If you want to blend in, you have to consider the culture around you. Doing something unusual for the culture will get the attention of other people. Yes, you can do your part in bringing Brazilian culture to Florida, but you may have to accept the rude stares of some people. If you can live with that, by all means wear your thong bikini. However, if you are uncomfortable with the reaction from other people then it is better to try to blend in. In the end, as long as you are not doing anything illegal you can do whatever you want (at least in the USA)--but that does not mean your actions will be approved by everyone. Personally, it doesn't matter to me what you wear (or don't wear), but society has its "values"...
For example, if you are in the Middle East you should not give anything to another person with your left hand. This is a social custom--the left hand is considered "unclean." While your left hand is as actually as clean as your right hand, it can be offensive to some people because of the culture. Sometimes it is better to adapt rather than provoke others. Also, displaying the sole of your foot or using the "thumbs up" gesture is offensive in the Middle East. When in Rome...
