What do people think about bikinis?
I far prefer bikinis to one-piece suits.
Two basic reasons:
Bikinis allow for much more flexibility of movement in the waves. One-piece suits are much more constricting.
I personally cannot find a one-pice that fits me, as I am different sizes on top and on the bottom. If there’s room for my chest and back, the bottom is huge and floppy. If the bottom fits right, I can’t even squeeze myself into the top. One can usually purchase bikinis as matching separates.
Do you want to?
Here’s the thing, no matter what you wear, someone’s going to find someone wrong with it. (Same with me, same with Scarlett Johansson, Nicki Minaj, and literally any other woman you can think of.)
You’re the one who decides what you wear and why you wear it. If you want to wear a bikini to the beach, then wear the bikini. If you don’t want to, then don’t. If you want to, but you don’t think your confidence is up to it, then wait.
That’s okay too.
Everyone has a different body shape, so you kind of have to figure out not only what works best for your body type, but what also makes you feel confident. Even if everyone thinks you look good in a bikini, and you don’t feel good in it, you’re not going to be at your best. If you feel great in a bikini, you can always work it.
In Blue Crush, we meet three Hawaiian surfers who work as hotel maids, live in a grotty rental, and are raising the kid sister of one of them. Despite this near-poverty, they look great; there is nothing like a tan and a bikini to overcome class distinctions.
