    Swimming in the nude is

    so much more comfortable and it feels natural. Wearing wet dripping cloths is so uncomfortable.

    One of the most pointless uncomfortable & very

    restricting to have ! Do we really really need them ? And if that's not enough you have to Wash and dry them afterwards what a waste of time .

    I've never worn a 'proper' swimsuit.

    I have had the option to wear them but I feel uncomfortable in them. I feel so vulnerable. I feel judged when I do wear swim suits and even more judged when I wear running shorts and two layers of singlets as my swimmers. I've kinda stopped going to the pools because of it.

    When I lived in South Florida I used to go to

    Haulover Beach exclusively. I got so used to skinny dipping, when I had to wear a swimsuit, say at a pool, I really hated it. It’s just so uncomfortable with the water tugging at my suit, getting sand in it, wearing a wet suit. Why would anyone wear a swimsuit if you don...

    I hate a wet and soggy bathing suit

    that you have to constantly adjust. It takes all the fun out of swimming...so when it is acceptable, I just don't wear one! Problem solved. Thank goodness we have our own pool so I can spend the summer skinny dipping. It just seems so silly to wear a suit in your own pool!

    I Don't Like Swimsuits

    I have been swimming topless in my pool at home since I was 14. I prefer to swim nude but M&D don't cope with that, so I swim nude when they are not home and topless when they are. All my friends (male and female) have seen me and are cool with it. Some of the girls swim...

    I just don't understand the point of them.

    They don't project anything, or keep anything warm. It seems that if would be easier if we all agreed to just accept simple nudity as a fact of life.

    I had a kid and now I have no butt,

    and more stomach. I just never have enough motivation to exercise even though I eat a good diet. My husband wants me to wear a bikini, but I'm too embarrassed. Even before having a kid, I only wore a bikini once or twice...

    For swimming a suit is uncomfortable and,

    at least to me, kind of silly. They dry slowly and if you change out of them then decide to go back in the water, they are usually still wet and clammy. Your own skin should suffice

    Most of the time...unless I'm swimming in water

    that may be risking exposure to Pacu fish.

    I find that most swimmers are uncomfortable

    for me to wear for long periods of time. Most bikini tops are particularly uncomfortable as i'm large. I like swimming totally naked; I have no body image issues and I'm not self conscious, and I don't have to worry about anything falling off either! I once borrowed my bf's...

    Forget Boreing Swimming Suits

    If allowed I would swim nude even if everyone else had on a swimming suit. How I wish I had access to a pool that allowed nude swimming. I definitely think indoor pools should allow nude swimming. On the other side of the coin I think outdoor pools should allow clothes...

    I don't like wearing bikinis

    because of my stretch marks being on my butt cheeks and lower back. It's Embarrassing. I wouldn't even go skinny dipping with friends. If I do put on a bikini. I would only put on the top part with swim shorts

    Why would I want to wear a piece of textile

    for swimming when nature gave me the best swimming suite imaginable: my very own skin! I mean, let's list the benefits. - It doesn't weigh anything - There's never any risk of losing it - It dries super quick - It's super circumfluent, nothing that slows you down while swimming...

    My taste is a result of conditioning.

    There is a lake in the woods behind my neighborhood. This lake is rather small, and a man made reservoir, it is seldom used for recreation by anyone due to its size. However ever since I was little I would go and swim in it with my friends. We were all like Tom Sawyer going out...

    Dresses and Business Suits Are For Swimming!

    Public swimming pools and water theme parks have a stupid rule: They require people to wear "swimsuits" that look more like skimpy underwear.  Whatever became of modesty?  Bring back the swim dresses and costumes people used to wear into the water just...

    I will wear bra and knickers

    if anyone really objects to the sight of my unclothed body, but I draw the line at having to get undressed only to put on other clothes to get into the water. I am not ashamed or embarrassed by my body. I just want to take a swim and be comfy :-)

    body type. Not even a one piece I just don't want others to see my stretch marks and I don't like my thighs

    I Wear Underwear In Public Pools

    I am currently having physiotherapy and as part of the treatment I swim in an indoor public pool. I have swam in black CK boxerbriefs a few times and black Tommy regular briefs the last two swims. No one has said anything.

    Putting on clothes to go swimming is just about

    the most stupid thing you could do. How dumb can people be? Human bodies are all beautiful to see. Swimming suits are expensive, uncomfortable, unhealthy, useless, and very non-green by totally wasting natural resources to produce and wash. Just stop using them.

    I think that bathing suits are uncomfortable,

    but they accentuate the female body in ways that nudity cannot. Nearly every single one of my bikinis (24 tops and 19 bottoms) is either a a push up or busty, or a thong or at least cheeky :)
