Bikini challenge

Not to lose weight to fit into a bikini but to wear a bikini if you want to. I bought one last night and I'm so excited to have it delivered. I found some bodyshorts (like boy trunks only slimmer) and a cute halter top black with white polka dots. Sooooo cute. I don't mind wearing a bathing suit but I don't want my fanny hanging out or for all to view and my bellybutton needs to be covered. It's perfect.

    I've never stopped wearing bikinis no matter how old I got or how much/little I weighed.
    If people are grossed out because someone over 20 years old or over 100 lbs dares to wear a bikini, well they will just have to avert their eyes when I walk by. I wear what pleases me.

    Ugh, so I'm wearing a bikini for the first time this year next weekend(hopefully). It's finally getting warm enough and I'm going to Florida. I have a week to tighten and lose a little. Now let's see if I'll actually do it. At this point it's just gonna be my stomach area. Too late for anything else lol. And I'm sick so I can't fully workout yet. :(

    I'm really loving my bikini friends here. Do we dare post pics?

    Ok, here's me last year (mem day or 4th of july). Not at my ideal or close but not at my worst unfortunately. This bikini doesn't have the best top for support but it was cheap(from Zara) and I like the color.

    I really wanna do way better this summer(with the working out) so I can rock this bikini all the way(I bought it last october) My main area is my lovehandles, stomach, then my butt/thigh area -

    You ladies are rocking your bikinis! You put me to shame. I love the pic of the bikini you bought. This will be my goal. I must order it today. Jim will have an orgasm just thinking of it. I know, I know he's a wimp.

    Thanks, you guys look awesome! Jeep, that looks like a photo out of a magazine, makes me wanna go to a pool asap.

    So do you guys think the bikini(multi print) would look good with a solid green bottom and gold string/ring? I really like the bottom, but the back is so skimpy, I dont think I'd ever really wear it, not sure what I was thinking. I usually dont mix and match though..Victoria secrets have bottoms that would go.

    Hot ladies! No stretch marks?? Anyone want some of mine. I have enough plus to go around.
  • jeepcurlygurljeepcurlygurl Posts: 19,240Registered Users Curl Dabbler
    josephine, i love that bathing suit! I'm a freak about things matching so the only way I could get a separate bottom is if the colors match perfectly. But most other people aren't as freaky about that as I am. : )

    Thanks, the green I've seen is a perfect match but I think solid with print won't look too great.

    I haven't worn a bikini for years, as I found tankinis much more comfortable. This year i was looking to replace my old one, only to find that none of the shops sold tankinis. I got really frustrated trying on one pieces as they were all either uncomfortable or didn't suit my body shape :(

    I was lucky enough that someone recommended black milk swimsuits to me, they are an online only fashion store in Brisbane who mainly make leggings, bodycon dresses and swimsuits.

    When they had a sale on, I took a gamble and ordered one, and to my surprise it was an absolutely perfect fit and looked fantastic on. I have since got quite a few more :) this is the last one I got (these are photos from their site, not me-- I don't actually have any photos of me in a swimsuit)

    I like the last green one. The top part looks nicer. I like a lot of one pieces but the problem is that they make my thighs stick/bubble out(like the opposite of muffin top).

    Yes I agree about the model, the ones they use for that line are not my ideal type and I couldn't find a good one to really show it off. I've had this as my phone wallpaper many times to motivate me to workout. I've always wanted an all yellow bikini but dont want to get one until I get to my ideal body shape - this is the closest I could find (except I could do w/out the definition) -

    I'm a little overweight, but I wear bikinis.
  • LotsawavesLotsawaves Posts: 8,660Registered Users
    I wore mine a couple of weekends ago and Jim took a pic with his camera. He hasn't downloaded it yet. I'll post (maybe) when he does. I bought another one for this coming weekend. We are doing another swim party with his family and friends. This one is smaller. The nice thing is that the 1st one is a turquoise blue and the new one is turquoise blue, white, and black. I can interchange them. He suggested I wear the top of the 1st one with the bottoms to the new one. He feels the top is a little too skimpy for a family cookout. I agree.

    I have a pic of me wearing my first bikini since before I got pregnant. It's surprisingly very attractive. I had to exchange it for a smaller size, but I'm not too disappointed with how it looks.
  • LotsawavesLotsawaves Posts: 8,660Registered Users
    Jim emailed the pics and I downloaded them, but can't get them to copy over here. Not sure if it's my computer or me.

    I wore a bikini for the first time this year last Saturday. It wasn't as bad as I thought. I have a pic I'm keeping as a before pic. I want to trim the fat by June/July.

    I was able to put it in my avatar. I'll only leave it up for today.

    I can't find the other bikini fitness thread -

    So I've been working out(only for a week) but it has helped my stomach. Wearing a bikini this weekend (this time in Miami and at some big parties). Pleasantly surprised at whatever progress I made but itll probably go up this weekend as quickly as it went down, eeks.

    I also bought a new one last night at Marshalls for $20. And 3 really cute coverups!
