Default BBWs in bikinis

I went to Coney Island yesterday for the Siren Music Festival. That's a great place to spot BBWs in bathing suits. There were so many beautiful big women girls. the area is home to many Black and Hispanic women who traditionally are proud of their curves. Further down the boardwalk is Brighton Beach where you can see some cute plump Russian Jewish girls. I noticed that lately, I've seen more and more large women in bikinis and two-piece bathing suits. On the beach I saw families where three generations of women were wearing two pieces. Every dimple and roll was on display without shame. My friends kept pointing out all the BBWs for me to look at. Between looking at girls and the Cyclone roller coaster, I nearly broke my neck that day.

Is the culture slowly evolving? Is size acceptance growing? Are more companies designing plus-size swimsuits? How many Dimmers here wear two-piece suits on the beach or at pools?

Personally I'm more confident then ever and I will wear my bikini wherever I damn well please. I'm proud of my body as is my husband so I really don't care what other people say. If they don't like what they see they don't have to look! There are plenty of skinny women (who look like they haven't eaten in months) that I don't find attractive in a bikini so I just don't look at them. I keep my eyes open for the fatties!

I wear my two piece suits and bikinis exclusively - I don't even own a one piece. I went to Galveston with HeatherBBW, her husband, and sister recently, and wore a bikini to the VERY crowded pool at the resort where we stayed. No one batted an eye, at least not that I could see, and I wouldn't have cared if they had. If someone doesn't like it, they don't have to look!

It's basically like pulling off a bandaid. Much the same as going sleeveless for the first time. You put on your two piece swimsuit, go to the beach or the pool, and when the world doesn't stop spinning to gawk at you, it becomes second nature to do it again.

I wore mine out today for the first time. That belly skin hasn't seen the direct sunlight in a lot of years! Very liberating.

My torso is white as snow. I don't own any bikinis.

I also tend to get a rash for a few days after "virgin" skin gets some sun (pre-base tan), so I am scared to expose it to the elements.

I slathered with sunscreen. Don't know how I would ever get an even tan though without the spray tan stuff . . . my stomach is just soooooo white.

I own two bathing suits (the ones that fit anyway )

The first one looks like this



The second one is similar to this:



I admit to feeling more "comfortable" about myself in the second one...which is basically a swim dress.
To be totally honest though, I think it goes beyond just the weight for me. I have stretch marks on my stomach and don't always like how it looks...so I tend to try to hide it a lot. I also don't like how pale I usually am....makes me think my skin is ugly/pasty so I don't want to show too much of it out in public. My stomach "hangs" too much for a bikini.

All that being said, I still don't hesitate to swim with my children. I also don't wear a "cover up" when I go to the pool/beach. I just wear the suit by itself with some flip flops

I own two bikini's that I've done pics of for my Yahoo group... but I have yet to wear them in public. I'm a little afraid to yet. I still worry about what people think. i know it's stupid... but I do anyway. I hope I get more comfortable and can do it.

You have NOTHING to be afraid about - you look incredible in those bathing suits. Your body is made for a bikini.

I think I can count on one hand the amount of times I've worn a bikini and that was only at a BBW party or bash. I tend to wear skirted tankinis because I just feel more comfortable in them. I prefer skirted bottoms because they offer just a bit more coverage and allow me to feel more comfortable around other people...but that's just me. I love seeing other BBWs in bikinis and admire their courage and confidence.

I see smaller fatties wear bikinis at the beach, maybe up to a size 20 or so. When I do see someone my size, they're usually very covered up. And this was at the gay part of a nude beach! Although going to a gay beach is wonderful. You're so out of the men's realm of sexual interest that you're left alone. Plus no loud children or teenagers.

Two pieces would make life easier, but I have too many carbuncle scars around my waist to feel comfortable.

I cant wear a bikini because I have a scar on my stomach, but I am going to go to the beach this coming summer ( December in Australia) and I am going to wear a bathing suit and I am going to swim in the ocean for the first time in years and years and years!
I am doing it. I dont care if I have wobbly thighs and a jiggly tummy.

I love my two piece bikinis - wore them on the beaches on vacay a couple weeks ago. Got plenty of compliments and cat calls...

I wear 1-piece and 2-piece swimsuits about equally and I'm not shy about it. In my mind they're only a step beyond my usual summer ensemble of short pants or skirts and sandals, and I'm also not shy about bare arms and legs. My fat has been good to me, so I'm good to my fat. Besides, a supersize woman needs to be comfy in the hot weather, ya know.

It is just way too hot in Florida to be concerned with covering up, but I just recently liberated my bikini to the public realm.

Oh man, I missed Siren this year. None of my friends wanted to go since they all thought the bands were lame and really there wasn't a band I had to had to see so I didn't go, plus last year I nearly got crushed trying to see M.I.A. and I'm still feeling a bit traumatized, but if I had known there be such a wonderful display of confidence in full force I'd have gone just to witness that.

I have no problem going sleeveless, but a bikini is where I'd probably get shy. I def wouldn't wear one at the pool I go to since it's at my gym, but I might wear one on the beach....

Default Easier...

I have two bikinis...I started wearing them out of convenience. My one-piece is like putting on a scuba suit, takes so long to get it over my hips. The bikinis are sooo much easier, so they are all I'll wear now at Fatty Bashes.

I am so white that I practically glow in the dark...and I have a small scar on my stomach, but I don't care. Pretty much everyone else wears them at the bashes, it's liberating and fun!!! I highly recommend it, plus if you're uncomfortable, keep in mind that nobody can really see your body clearly once you're in the water anyway.
