How Do You Feel in Your Swimsuit?

It is the middle of July and Summer feels half over. I am wondering if you feel beach ready now that we are midway through the season. So tell me . . .

I go out and swim but I tend to feel kinda bleh... Can't keep me from water tough!

I'm a size 12 and I wear a bikini. I could care less what other people think of me in my bikini. So I've got fluff around the edges, that's not going to make me stay inside during the hot summer months! I feel sorry for the girls that obsess over themselves so much that they don't go out and enjoy the water! Stop caring what other people think and be happy with who YOU are!

I am not a beach person AT ALL. I prefer the pools any day of the week - you can *actually* swim there, as opposed to having to weave in and out of people goofing around. I'm going to begin training for an ocean swim soon, so I'll be forced to swim at the beach, but I'll be in a heavy duty wetsuit - I won't be making any obligatory fashion statement.

No, I'm not really happy with my body at the moment. My weight is fine, but I need to work out more. But not looking your best doesn't mean you shouldn't feel comfortable in a bikini! I'm not going to avoid the beach and having a good time this summer because my butt is looking less than perfect...

Spectra...I am so addicted to Brazillian waxes. I actually do it myself now that I learned the technique. No more pain. My mom said "I killed it". hehe

I'm not down with a lot more about "swimsuit situations" than just the swimsuit. I'm not a fan of the sun, the heat, the sunscreen, or the bug spray. I stay inside as much as possible in the summer.

This is the first year I bought a bikini, but I've always liked my body. The only thing I did differently this year was that I got a Brazilian wax (which was, btw, totally worth it).

It is my hope that next summer I will be thin enough to wear a swimsuit...but not this year. :( Hopefully next summer I will have a pool too.

I hear you, TidalWave! I live in LA and I love the beach, and I love it! I've started working out for health reasons, but I don't care about my weight one bit--if there's anything I've realized from being on the beach, it's that every other girl there is too busy being worried about what she looks like to even notice how you look. I think that you should feel good in your swimsuit whether you're a size 2 or a size 20!

TidalWave - I had the EXACT same reaction to the choices offered. Thank you for pointing that out. I feel great, but not because I obsessed over it. I live in my bathing suit and surf shorts. You get used to it after awhile and don't feel particularly exposed....

To be honest I haven't gone swimming once this summer and have only been in my swimsuit once. I don't really like swimming or sun bathing. However I feel great and didn't do a lot of hard work.

I don't really go anywhere where I need a swimsuit and considering the weight loss I'm still in need of a new one. I haven't bothered though because who knows if I'll even need it.

man I HATE being in a swimsuit, and have only done it on my honeymoon for the last 10 years of my life! I'm naturally thin but I don't have a good body at all. :(

I disagree- I think those statements would perfectly fit my thoughts- most years I do normal exercise and I feel good but not superstar awesome (i.e not doing anything special). This year I've been training a lot for running races and it was hard work and even if the goal wasn't to have a better bikini body it worked for that too- so yes i feel great and the hard work did pay off makes sense to me- of course it's good for people to be happy with their body the way it is and if they feel great with their natural body then that's awesome and I'm jealous of that haha.

I think it is very immodest for me to run around in my underwear in front of strangers so I have a sporty two-piece (The top is more like a sports bra). I only attend private beaches with family and immediate friends & my private pool.

UGH!!! I do not like the message you are sending out here! " I feel good, but I didn't do anything special." " I feel great! My hard work has paid off." So I can only feel "great" if I put work into my body? And will simply feel "good" if I do nothing?

I finally started and stuck to an exercise routine, so I would live in my bikini if I could!

I don't really exercise that much anymore so I'm not thrilled about my body at the moment, but at the same time I'm blessed with good genes so it is still pretty good relatively speaking.
