I love many of the bikinis I see on Pinterest, I wish I looked as good in them as some of the girls they show.
And some of the endless pictures of hot guys I can view on Pinterest is just really awesome. Its like it never ends with the amount of cute guys in bathing suits and their barely there or not there swim trunks.

MOD MOD MOD I'm showing signs of anorexia. I restrict myself from carbs, sugars, fats, even dairy, and I'm shrinking my portions too. I never stand still and I even exercise a little in public, and when I'm alone or in the gym I exercise like crazy! Even when I see results I still call myself "thunder thighs" and I feel fat. The only reason why it's not 100% anorexia is because I'm not starving myself. I really don't want to live the rest of my life like this. Please help!
Hey girlie, find someone to talk to. Your parents or a guidance counselor is a good place to start. You might want to see a professional who specializes in eating disorders from there. Remember that an eating disorder is something that you can't control. See if you can scale back on exercise or try to eat more or not so strictly to see if you can help yourself change and get better.

I Always wear a 2 piece bathing suit...it makes me feel confident with my body, However i do want to loose some weight on my legs. And i ALWAYS shave before even thinking about wearing a Bikini!

I just love how I have the same bikini as the one in the picture. I don't know why it's so exciting to me.
by amelia84 on 6/21/2013 11:04:59 PM
Personally, i feel i am MORE ATTRACTIVE in my one piece bathing suits, and more comfortable too!

This is not a dumb question but we all know the answer, they do like to see us in bikinis. I can tell when I wear mine, I have guys come around who normally wouldnt and they make comments. We are all visual but I think guys are just very visual when it comes to seeing our bodies. Who can blame them some of the things we wear are very revealing.

I don't think it matters if one wears a bikini or not. It's not like girls dress JUST for guys. I am really tall, so I have to wear a bikini, because a one piece it too short for my torso, I don't think it a big deal. It also make a difference by the KIND of bikini you wear.

by puella94 on 6/3/2013 3:39:51 PM
wearing a bikini is the exact same thing as walking around in public in your bra and underwear. i have no idea why this is socially acceptable.
by tswiftluver13 on 6/3/2013 2:00:30 PM
Also classy girls wear one pieces the guys that like girls in bikinis are usually pervs and only have one thing on there minds :-(
by redvelvetluv on 6/3/2013 1:56:48 PM
I hontestly do not care what boys like and dont like girls you can look just as hot while wearing a one piece (not a les or bi) but yeah a LOT of models wear one pieces if you feel like showing off some skin just get a one piece with cutout sides
by redvelvetluv on 6/3/2013 12:42:32 PM
If their unthankful jerks, (like most guys,0 they'll probolay only want you if your showing skin. If they are the nice kind, they'll care for you even without it.
by fashionfreak802 on 6/3/2013 12:40:16 PM
It depends on the guy. The jerks only like you for what they see as to where if there's a more conservative guy, he'll care more about what's on the inside

OMG I LOVE BIKINIS I LOOK GREAT IN THEM
by greekprincess98 on 6/6/2011 5:38:48 PM
Try some of those shorts that you can swim in--not guy's trunks, they're girl's and they are about the same size as a normal pair of shorts. You where them over swim bottoms, and you can wear them with one-pieces and two-pieces. Sorry, I can't remember the name!
by BeCAZOWIFIED on 6/5/2011 2:18:06 PM
Maybe try a tank-ini?
But really, the guys who give you attention when u bear all that skin...they're usually not very nice and not bf material...
a nice guy wouldn't care a whole lot about what you wear
by dina22464 on 6/3/2011 12:32:31 PM

by greekprincess98 on 6/2/2011 8:25:36 PM
greekprincess98, it sounds like he was just being flirty with you. If he was dirty he would have asked to see other things and he would want to show other things to. I think guys get like that at times just like we do, but we arent the ones usually saying it, they are. And if its just his abs he wants to show I would take him up on it. Its summer, its time for fun.

But i wasn't mad because i known him since forever, but 4 some reason i was laughing. Do you think he meant it in a dirty way?? i dont think he did though

No matter what type of swimsuit you choose, make sure you feel completely comfortable in it! Think about if it can handle the diving board, the slide, laps, and serious splash fights. DO NOT GO STRAPLESS! When I was 12 I had a removable strap bathing suit. I did not have the straps on and went to pull myself out of the 4 feet section of the community pool. When doing this my bathing suit came down and my chest was totally exposed. Only a couple of girls saw but I learned my lesson. I never got in the pool with out my straps again.
And when trying to impress the guys, keep it simple, simple, casual, covered. In my many years of experience, guys approach me way more when I am in t-shirts than low-cut dresses.

I've been crushing on a guy in my P.E. and music class since the beginning of the school year about 9 months, my friend (who isn't much of a friend now) gave me his cell phone number so I sent him a text that said I had a crush on him.
Then a couple days ago I asked him to be my BGF and he asked about this other dude and I said he is weird so my crush said he would be my BGF. Is that strange or creepy?
by hollylover5 on 5/15/2011 10:42:35 PM
My friend likes this guy who is going to a different highschool than us. Most likely she'll never see him again. I think she should tell him. She doesn't know how to start the convo since she doesn't talk to him. What should she say if she should go on with it? She's really close to me and he's one of my best friends. They're so much alike it's scary. I think they would be great together.

by AnnieClark on 5/15/2011 5:04:11 PM
majicbananaturtle, if he just turned 17 that means you could be as close as 2 years apart and that isnt that much. Plus guys that age are probably just as mature as we are but what would your mom think about dating a guy that age? I would think its okay but you dont want to be hiding a relationship. Personally I like older guys and so do many of my friends but guys who are 17 may be expecting more and wanting to do things so you may have to be ready for that.

Hey I've never felt great in a bikini and you know I found that tankinis are just as adorable
by littlemissrose on 5/10/2011 8:04:23 PM
My friends and I went shopping this weekend for new bikinis, I spent way to much one one and got a great deal on the other. Some are just too expensive, you have to sometimes wait for the deals because they are there if you look.
by luckykel on 5/9/2011 10:37:29 PM
I totally agree. I've never felt comfortable with the idea of wearing a bikini anyway. I don't really like showing tons of skin >///<

Bikinis have their ups and downs. If you want a two piece than get a tankini. They are great and don't show two much off.
by pixiedust5 on 5/5/2011 10:31:05 PM
Yeah get a hot red one piece! Or get one with cut outs if your mom will let you!
by Photochickie on 5/5/2011 4:08:21 PM
wearing a bikini have pros and cons. while wearing a more conservative outfit doesn't. you might not get all the guy's attention but one approach is a high probability of interest on your personality, not on your skin alone. another thing is, personality contributes a more larger part on being beautiful, rather than outfits.
by erica100 on 5/5/2011 1:55:48 AM
i wear tankinis and sometimes one pieces but never bikinis
by girlslifeluver on 5/4/2011 11:40:18 PM
I wear bikinis because i hate the feeling of being wet when i get out of the water when I'm wearing a one piece or a tankini. i wear shorts though because most bikinis come with really skimpy bottoms that make me feel ackward.
by iheartpurpleconverse on 5/4/2011 6:40:43 PM
Something WAY more important than how revealing your suit is how you act in it.
A girl can wear a skimpy bikini, but as long as her behavior is really modest, she won't look so slutty.
A girl can wear a modest 1-piece, but if she behaves a certain way, she can still come off as slutty.
by basketballchick98 on 5/4/2011 4:43:00 PM
wow lot of negative comments
girls its not really saying u shouldnt wear a two piece! its really kinda for those girls that wanna snag a guy this summer and is wonder well if i wear a one piece will i not attract guys?? its more in that sense then oh its saying that we shouldnt wear two pieces.
WWJD rocks!!! All those christian girls out there PLZ post on my wall!!!
love ya all

by puppylover1152 on 5/2/2011 9:00:53 PM

I used to wear bikinis a lot, but I have a sort of chubby belly, and I don't like one pieces that much, so instead I wear Tankinis!!! I LOVE tankinis soooo much!

My bod doesn't work with a one-piece(My torso is too long and if I go a size bigger things rarely work), and I can't wear bikinis, so instead I wear tankinis! They can be uber cute!!! <3

by hannahbear33 on 5/2/2011 5:57:08 PM

I absolutely HATE bikinis! They look so weird plus my stomach looks kind of hairy(ew). I look pretty good in a one-piece! Can someone say curves?? If you wear one-pieces it looks better becuase it give your body more shape! YOU ARE FINE GIRL! ROCK WHAT YOU GOT!
by topchef88 on 5/2/2011 4:26:29 PM
I have a nice body and I've worked hard with dieting and workouts to get it that way, so I'm going to be showing it off in my itsy bitsy bikini And I feel super confident so I don't think I should cover up just because guys will give you more attention for showing some skin! If you like the way you look then show it to the world! XOXO
by jesusfreakhrdcore on 5/2/2011 3:56:02 PM

by pointeprincess on 5/2/2011 2:44:19 PM
This is good advice if you dont want attention. When I wear my bikini I get the most looks, some of them I dont want, when I have worn my one piece its less attention.
So I would listen to your mom if you want or talk to her about letting you wear a bikini. My dad still hates when I wear a bikini since some of the one I have are kind of small but its no worse than what a lot of my friends wear.
