I don't think that most women are okay with wearing a bikini in public, I think that those that do are trying to attract attention to themselves. A lot depends on the setting, as a youngster I was quite surprised when in the army on a hot day I came across, in a very conservative area, women working in the fields without their shirts on. No one seemed to mind but me, I was embarrassed.
because it's socially unacceptable and most women wear a bikini cause they're going swimming, theyre not going to go in their clothes so they wear that, not everyone wears them to show off though.
Why is a man comfortable wearing swim trunks in public, but won't walk down the street in his jockey shorts?
I'm saying that men and women have the same attitude towards swimwear/vs underwear. Why single out the women? We both do it because society thinks underwear in public is "naughty". Silly, but true.
What a stupid thread. I'm sorry, I guess you can call me a common sense realist but c'mon are you kidding me? It's all for show ladies. Don't pretend it's not. Men can so easily see that it is, and those of you who argue it isn't just look ridiculous. Seriously.
So a woman will wear the skimpiest most revealing bikini they can find, and its more revealing than mots bras and underwear, and call it ok to stare and gawk as they get wet and constantly "fix" it when it gets out of place (if they feel like it).<br />
But then the same person wears underwear much more conservative compared to their barely there bikini and freak out when someone gives even the slightest look at them.<br />
Both sets do the same exact thing as basic function goes. Both are meant to cover up specific parts of the body and can be made out of ANY material for ANY scenario. And while we're at it, sports bras count among this too. One in the same.
its not a matter of functionality but a matter of consent.
a woman can do whatever the **** she wants in public, even if that means wearing skimpy bikinis (kudos to you for **** shaming though), because they already agreed to be seen wearing it when she bought it, put it on, then went into a public area. she is mentally prepared to be gawked at
however, even if she is in more conservative underwear, the context is that its UNDERWEAR. she didn't mean for someone to see it. if this were in a romantic context and she did mean to be seen, would she really freak out? (no). if she freaks out, she is obviously upset because she hasn't given her consent and did not agree on any level for anybody to see her in that state.
who cares about levels of modesty, this is about her levels of comfort
so tl;dr .... **** off
So, in other words.. It's all women's logic and women's logic are screwed?
Why stare her underwear when you can feast your eyes when she's wearing bikini.
Also, what about when the wind blows her skirt or her skirt caught in something that eventually leads to her underwear being exposed?
For some it's okay because we have been conditioned to think it's okay, but of course, it is not... wearing your underwear in public is not okay simply because you're at the beach or pool. Of course, many indecent women love flaunting their bodies, so they enjoy this trend very much.
I WOULD wear it in public I just don't because society doesn't accept it.
I'm not actually sure
I wish women would push it to acceptance.
Because it's different bikinis have fun in go swimming. underwear/bra sexy,hot,cute you wear underwear /bra to make you look sexy for your husband/boyfriend bikinis to have fun in with your husband /boyfriend
There is a difference between intentionally showing off your body and not. When you want to show off, a bikini is a good way to do so. On the other hand, underwear is not bought or designed for public display and would be classified under 'private'. Although the visuals behind them could be similar, the intent is different. In a womans mind she is not just wearing clothes - she is wearing an outfit for a specific purpose. Im a guy so I could be wrong here...
I agree that is odd and makes little sense. Even when I had the body for a bikini I never wore one.
cos they think bra+panties are not fashionable enough.
That's women for you, boobs out on the beach not a problem but they gotta wrap those doggies up when they step off the sand...
because i only wear a bikini on the beach, not everywhere. it's different
yeah and because it's not exactly bikini weather in the UK most of the time lol
