Is it awkward to wear a one-piece bathing suit nowadays?

I mean with everybody going ga-ga over the latest bikinis on display, do you think one-piece bathing suits already old-fashioned?

think about this, if you have a fat belly would you dare wearing a two piece bathing suit ? you don't need to follow what these so called fashion gurus say. as long as it fits a person, that is ok. it is better to be stylish rather than fashionable.

Fat belly rang a bell.:-( But you know what? It feels better that aside from me, another being agrees that you don't have to be pressured into wearing anything just because the experts recommend it.

If you were to compare them to all the latest swimsuits out there these days, some might call the old fashioned I guess! Overall though, I think they've managed to create new one-piece designs that are just as fashionable as any other swimsuit type. I really do struggle with them myself, but I found that if I put a tennis ball at the back, it helps to balance out the front just fine.

I would never wear a bikini. I'm just not comfortable showing that much skin especially when I'm just trying to swim and enjoy myself. I do like two piece swimming suits over a one piece but never anything that has less clothe than my undergarments. What I think is as long as the person wearing the bathing suit is comfortable, nothing else really matters.

I think the one piece can be a classy outfit and it really enhances the figure of many. Just as the sun rises and sets it shall always be here. The bikini is also a wonderful creation and seeing my mother in her turquoise bikini at the age of 63 on her Spanish holiday underlines that age should be no barrier to what form of swimsuit one wants to wear and that one form is certainly not going out of fashion.

I agree....like in my response above, I dont think there are age restrictions when it comes to bathing suits. I do admire your mom for having the confidence. It's something I just don't imagine myself having in a two-piece suit. :D

Personally, I don't like to wear one-piece bathing suit when swimming because it feels like I all my excess fats in the body is being revealed.lol! I prefer two piece when swimming, it is more convenient and comfortable because it gives my tummy enough room to breath.

I was never comfortable wearing bikinis. I am not the type who is willing to bare it all out. I think there are still a lot of fashionable one-piece bathing suits out there that people like me can use. Especially now, after giving birth twice, I can never wear a two-piece because my stretch marks would show.

I have seen a lot of flabby women who don't seem to worry about wearing two-piece suits. I do admire their confidence though. It's just that it's totally no-no for me. I have stretch marks too even if I have never been pregnant. I used to be so fat then I thinned down then I bloated again.

I love wearing two piece bathing suits and my husband prefers them also. But in all honesty, I don't need to be wearing them in public! I am going to a pool party this afternoon and will be wearing my old fashioned one piece. Yesterday I spent half a day trying to find another one piece that looked half way decent and didn't cost a small fortune with no luck. So I will wear my bikinis at home and my ugly one piece in public. It really doesn't make much sense does it? I have friends that are much bigger than I am that strut around in their 2 pieces. It just seems more modest (old fashioned?) to me to wear a one piece.

hehe....well wearing two-piece doesnt mean it's less modest....it depends on who's wearing but you are right, compared to the two-piece, one piece tends to be more comfortable. THanks for the response/

I think it depends on who is wearing it. I mean there are people who will certainly look good and great wearing such and there are those that are not. For me there is really no need to consider the latest bikinis, you might have the latest but your body is not suitable for such. So I think its more of who is wearing it rather than what you are wearing.

It depends on what you like. One piece bathing suit is still a big trend in the market however they added more style on it. I know that most women are now more on two piece bathing suits because, but tell me are you going it for the sake of style or suffer because you are not comfortable with it. Your body actually the one that needs it, if you look good on one piece then why not? Enjoy your day. Happy mylotting and smile always!

Well let me tell you it may be old fashioned but I'm all about the one piece bathing suit. I would much rather see someone in a one piece than someone who cannot accept that they are not two piece material!!! LOL

hi there, Most of the people who are going ga-ga over the latest bikini's styles are those who are young and have a great figure. If I were like that I would probably wear one too, but I'm not. I don't think one-piece bathing suits are going out of style and I don't think they ever will. So call me old fashioned if you may, its a one piece for me so I can hide all my body flaws. ~proudnana~
