is it okay for me to wear a bikini?

Asked by: Sinah 316 views Fashion & Accessories ,

I’m 19, 160lbs and 5’6….I’m not fat but I’m a little chubby on the sides…around the tummy…the thighs. I feel like you have to be super skinny to wear a bikini. My mother always says to me to get a one piece, but I dont want one because its hot and I hate it. I also dont like wearing shirts ontop of a bikini…Is it ok for a little chubby curvy girl to wear a bikini?

    Argh I hate one piece swimsuits too. My friend is also quite curvy and she looks pretty awesome in a bikini. You have to embrace yourself. You might not like what you see in the mirror, but in other people’s eyes, you look awesome. You don’t have to be skinny to wear a bikini and sometimes, skinny isn’t beautiful at all. Trust me, you’ll be fine. Just don’t hide yourself or cover yourself because people will then notice. You’ll look amazing. Promise.

    For sure, you can wear anything you can get away with confidently, and without breaking indecency laws! (kidding about the last part)And, honestly, even if you’re self-conscious, you don’t have to worry about not being good enough for other people’s eyes. Just find a swimsuit that looks good on you; 160 at 5’6 is a far cry from ‘too far gone’ even for generic judgmental arseholes if you have to take them into account. I guess I have to mention the whole, ‘anyone who judges you on your looks isn’t worth it anyway’ so I don’t sound heartless.You have to be super skinny to wear a bikini in front of a panel or superficial judges that haven’t seen a real woman before. You don’t have to be super skinny to be yourself, wear what you like and have a good time by the water.

    It’s perfectly okay to wear a bikini even if you are chubby. You will want to get one that has thicker straps and a higher waist this will give the illusion of a slimmer body. Of course, if you want to go with string bikinis, that’s fine, but the first type will probably look better on your figure.

    You can wear anything you want, unless it’s going to get you in trouble with the police. Your body type shouldn’t matter when it comes to what you "should" be wearing. Sure, nobody wants to look at 10 lbs of bologna in a 5 lb bag, but it’s all up to that person. Stop being self-conscious, and get out there!!!!!!!! ;)

    Of course! Why be insecure over something so small in life? The people that you see when wearing it will more than likely never see you again. If you keep this in mind, it will get you further in life and allow you to be yourself.

    You don’t need to be super skinny to wear a bikini. Curvy girls look just as amazing in bikinis. I’m sure you’d look great in a bikini too.
