Dear Poll: Would You Go Topless at the Beach?

Now that it’s actually starting to warm up here, I recently got to spend some time at the beach. My friend and I decided to wander the coastline until we found a more private cove. Well, imagine my surprise when we rounded a rock face and stumbled upon a huge number of nude and topless beach goers. Needless to say, we both blushed and then hurried back the way we came for a good laugh.

Nude beach or not, you’ll never catch me sans suit in public! But maybe I’m just being too modest; if you happened upon a topless beach would you bare yourself?

Topless, why only lose the top?

I am not much on my own nudity, but if everyone else was doing so I would not be ogled by all the men rather just one in the crowd, OK. I don't think there is anything wrong with nudity, just shy and size and shape has nothing to do with it.

For the record, I think small chested women are beautiful too. It's not about trying to show off your body, it is natural to be naked/topless and certainly nothing to be ashamed of. I think many women are just too self conscious. It is not good manners to stare at people at a nude beach anyway. I didn't feel stared at at all when I went topless. It was mostly hippies at the beach and very liberating to lie in the sun topless.

Topless is great! :) (And Dear, you're the last person I thought would be too prude! :D )I'm not saying I always go topless to the beach and I show my boobs to all my friends, it depends who I'm with. But there's nothing better than coming back to the beach after a swim and taking your cold wet top off to lie in the sun.I'm not necessarily a super confident person, but it actually makes me feel great to know I can show my boobs and not care. Things seem to be different between the US and Europe, but to all the people who said they'd get a boob job first, it's not about showing off your body, but just getting more comfortable instead of keeping on your wet top.

I've got no problem with the idea, it's just the self-consciousness that gets in the way.

Never, I'm fashionably conservative as it is. I wouldn't even go naked in my own backyard!

i went to europe last summer, to Croatia, where my boyfriend is from and women of all shapes and sizes go topless. So i took mine off as well, its extremely liberating and it feels so nice to swim in the ocean that way. I say if you are thinking about it, do it! you only live once, and every one has boobs, so its nothing new.

No thank you. I'm in the my boobs are too small category. Plus I just think most people's bodies are for more flattering in clothes!

they don't make swimsuits that cover up the areas i'm most embarrassed by- my upper thighs AND stomach together- so why not bare an area i know i'm blessed in? my 34Ds enjoy the sunshine!

I asked my boyfriend if he would go to a nude beach with me, but he said HELL NO. I wouldn't mind as long as I had SOME mental preparation. If I went to the beach to sunbathe and happened on a handful of people in a secluded area topless or nude, I might not want to join right away. However, when I dated this guy over the summer, we went to the beach to hang out, but ended up taking our clothes off and playing in the water. It was 10 PM-ish, so very few people saw us in our birthday suits, but that was fun. Too bad the water was freezing even in August!
