Default Too much of a belly for the beach?

I am not sure yet if I should dare wearing a bikini in public. A sarong cannot really cover it and my shorts or size 32 bikini bottom are too small to go pass my belly. Too fat for the beach, what do you think?

Years ago walking onto a beach after work in business attire, looking for my daughter and her friend, I got comments. There were a couple 20 something girls laughing and pointing. One made it a point to say very loudly "If he takes off his shirt I'm gonna barf". The point is, no matter what you wear there are still going to be obnoxious people. Wear what YOU want.

Of course, this depends on your own personal comfort level. If wearing a bikini is going to make you feel self-conscious and ruin your time at the beach, then I would consider wearing something else. If you are are comfortable, then go for it. It is tough sometimes to not worry about what others think (believe me, I know), but I find that I have the best times when I just focus on my fun and not worry about the opinions of others. If they don't like it, they can look the other way. The important thing is that you enjoy your time at the beach. I wish I were near a beach right now. Hope you have a blast.

There are thin and average women who would never wear a bikini. So, it's not only a weight thing. But, since large women do not usually wear bikinis, you will be making a statement and will get a lot of stares. If you want to attract a lot of attention, go for it. It's a persosonal thing. Do what you feel comfortable doing.

Agree - beach is a basic human right!

Find an outfit you feel comfortable and confident in and then go!

An alternative to the bikini sarong might be one of these oversized, sarie-style Indian print scarves.
I bought one at Accessorize in London: lovely print with some beads & sequins embroidery, covers bust to almost ankle (I'm 5'9'), light-weight non sticky pure cotton.

Have a great splash!

I think the words, "Too fat for the beach" shouldn't fit together grammatically. As for the pix - and, thank you very much, btw - let me just say I spend about half my time at the beach actively searching for women with figures as beautiful as yours. It is, of course, up to you and how comfortable you feel when you do go, but my vote is for the bikini!

Off topic, but please say you took your shirt off . I dunno why, but when someone willingly hands over that sort of power it gets my inner troll all riled up.

Default Thank you

Thank you all for the warm response. I would never go to the beach wearing this bikini in reality. It's 3 sizes too small to start with and if I was brave enough to wear a bikini in public I would at least find one in my size that covers most part of my belly. I am much more comfortable with my body than I used to be but I don't like attracting weird looks.
I enjoy wearing it at home or in my garden though and I thought you would appreciate the photos.
I wish there was a BBW/FA pool or beach in my neighbourhood

More photos as requested.
I decided to throw away all small underwear but I kept this size 30 thong. It shows how big my belly has become. It takes up all my lap when I sit. I still don't believe I am almost 500 pounds. Just the thought of it would be a nightmare a few years ago but and now I enjoy it so much.

Years ago I was visiting NYC with friends, and we went to a beach out on Long Island. Walking along the beach, we came to a stretch of it that was apparently a nude beach. We carried on, but of course checked it out from the corner of our eyes. Most of the people there were probably 40+, and a couple of the men were possibly the biggest guys I'd seen in person up until that time. Overall, it gave me the impression that scene was probably pretty body accepting.

So just thinking, if there was a nude beach in your area, perhaps that might, surprisingly, make for a more comfortable experience than trying to find a suit you'd be comfortable with at a regular beach?

Just a thought.

I guess it comes down to how self conscious you feel. One of the other posters said that if it's going to ruin your beach experience then yeah don't do it.

Personally, if there were more people of your size wearing bikinis at the beach it would actually be a much more interesting place to go for me.
