How can I get my parents to let me wear a bikini?

Asked by: Chocolate Vanilla 317 views Fashion & Accessories , , ,

So I am a Christian girl who wants to wear a bikini. My parents only let me wear tankinis. I don’t want a string bikini just like a bandeau or something. I would just borrow a friends but we go to the public pool and my family goes there too. I feel left out and the odd kid in a tankini. Not to bra but I’m kind of in the popular group and its just embarrassing to be wearing a tankini. How should I ask my parents If I can wear a bikini? Me and my parents don’t talk on a personal level so idk how to ask or bring it up. Summers coming soon and I need to know how to ask! Please help me!!!!!

    Even though you say you don’t talk on a personal level, I would sit one or both of them down and ask. Give good reasons WHY you think you should be allowed to wear one — "not fitting in" is a good reason. Also, by speaking to them directly and giving your reasons, you will also show them you are old enough to make these decisions on your own.

    You haven’t really listed reasons as to why your parents won’t let you wear a bikini, which would be helpful in creating a counter-argument. Another person who answered mentioned using "not fitting in" as an argument, which sounds good to me. Also make sure you mention that you don’t necessarily need a string bikini and would be fine with a less revealing type. Propose shopping for a bikini together (which sounds totally weird, I know, but it will work) that you all agree on.That being said, I’m 15 and half of my swimsuits are one-pieces. Last summer, I shopped for months, but I found a really cute size 4 one-piece that’s not a typical "swim team" sort of suit – it was expensive (around 60 dollars) but I get compliments every time I wear it. Try shopping at specially swimsuit stores, and I’m sure you can find a tankini or one-piece you’ll be proud to wear in public.

    Just when your mom is driving you to the mall or something, say, "Hey, Mom, is it okay if I pick up a bikini?" Just be really casual.Chances are, your parents will not be too pleased with it. (My parents are the same way.) But they might be willing to compromise. Maybe a tankini that shows a few inches of stomach?Also, just to let you know, there is NOTHING bad about wearing a tankini. They can be really adorable! Plus, your parents not letting you is a good excuse for covering up some belly fat! Haha.If you want, though, you could try wearing a bikini with a cami on top. Your parents would probably agree to that, and it’s really cute! That’s what I do! Also, you might be able to push for a slightly-see-through cami on top. You just have to let your parents get used to the thought of their beautiful baby girl off wearing a bikini in front of boys!
