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 wouldn't like random people I don't even know seeing me. I love my boobs, but it would be like showing them off to strangers. Maybe if it was really late and my boyfriend was with me. :)

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!

When I lived in south Florida I had no problem going topless on South Beach. The only issues were people out there not used to it that tried to take pictures. I was cool with my body, men acting like little boys have been my only issue with doing it.

people walk around naked in the locker rooms b/c they're used to doing it...it's a comfort thing (just like the poll about what you do when you get out of the shower, if you always grab a robe or towel, you're probably not going to prance around nude at the gym). I hate having a towel clinging to me and the gym locker room is so humid that I'm the type that if I do shower, i'd be fine walking sans clothing. Well I'd have the towel around and then lose it while I'm dressing, not about to try to handle it while covering myself and worrying about all that while trying to get dressed. If you're not modest, then you just don't really care. And if you are totally in love with your body, you usually don't care either:) Which is why I'd be all for going topless at the beach or going to a nude beach, I love my body and hardly ever have clothes on as it is! I frequently have to jump to a different room when my roommate comes home b/c I'm always around the place topless with just lil briefs on lol. My boyfriend loves it, but our roommate I just feel a bit bad for hehe.

If I had nice boobs, maybe. In other words, no. I see men at the beach with bigger breasts than me... I wouldn't want to invite the comparison.

Ha no...Maybe if I had a boob job...small breasted women arn't thought of too highly and are criticized for not being blessed up top. I'm not all about making myself a spectacle. Being a B cup isn't tiny tiny but still, it's not what is considered "sexy".

I would go topless for sure, but I don't think I would want to go bottomless.

In the right setting, yeah. It's amazing the difference in attitude between here and Europe. I was in Greece last summer and will be there again in August, and I look forward to losing the tan lines again :)
