well, two problems
Pre-boobs == fine.
Post-boobs == not a good idea (unless it's an all-girls pool)
actually thought it would be Marilyn Mansen.
probably not advisable
why did this post?!
anyway, is this acceptable? it cant not be, surely, esle we'd all be up in amrs with secsism and all that.
i want to start going swimming regularly because its something i enjoy and i'd like to get a bit fitter but since eating all the pies i really dont fancy being seen in a swimming costume in public.
i know this is going to make me stick out more, but it wont look too stupid will it?
also any girls know where to get a decent and not too expensive tankini at this time of year?
It works for Rebecca Adlington. She's not the slimmest of ladies yet still won two gold Oylmpic medals and set a world record.
because you believe people will see you imaginary flab better than if you have your stomach out?
I mean technically, no man will be looking at your stomach any more, that's true. The girls will be, though.
And by the time I read the title I assumed it was something about little girls wearing trunks instead of cossies...
but don't worry about how you look. People are generally unrecognisable in swimming pools, what with the goggles and the hairthingies. I've never ever looked at somone in a swimming pool and thought URRGH.
its more how i will feel, just in the changing room looking at myself in the mirror :(
and i wouldn't really know about being a girl to be honest.

Okay, that was a pretty big fail but then Daisy_Steiner got it so maybe it's something that girls make sense of.
It's going to weigh you down a lot and make swimming hard. They should probably make women's costumes like those hideous playsuit things that women like to wear as normal clothing. But covering your self up totally for reasons that are only down to self-image rather than religious/cultural ones is letting society win on the 'everyone must be beautiful especially women' front.
I don't really dispute the current standard cossie is about as bad as speedos are for a man. I'd have though something more akin to one of those partial wetsuits that let your arms and legs be naked would make more sense.
I've got a speedo one. It's not cheap but it is very good quality and will last. The extra bit of material will give you the little push of confidence you need.
my lack of swimming is purely down to laziness, after a year, I still haven't been to the pool which is 15 minutes walk from my house :(
i pretend im a mermaid
i considered something like this at first, but in the past i've never been able to find anything like it.
but im so unhappy about my weight at the moment that even that wouldnt make me feel better.
in a little while maybe!
speedo is such good quality, the material seems thicker and the design kind of holds you in place and supports you much more than any other suit I've had. also, spending that much on a costume means you're more likely to use it/feel guilty for not.
if you do get to the right stage in your head, then get a suit like this, I love the shorts on it, it has many plus points.
It's not exactly laziness, though. There are all kinds of irritating things like different nights for different people, and the fact it's so full and always has loads of fucking nut cases who seem to feel they're only swiming properly if they're drowning the other side of the pool in a tidal wave on every stroke...
and some kind of random fear of crossing the boundary.
once I'm in I'm fine, but there's a real mental block on it for me. I have a million excuses for not going too. Including, it means I'll have hair that smells like all chloriney and gross.
this was this totally hot girl who wore swimming trunks only, letting her lovely boobs bounce around as she played water polo. She was about 23/24 though and her boyfriend was a 50 year old lech. Boner killer :(
17.I may or may not have 'accidentally' tried to get a picture of her at one point. I don't really remember
would be if I had one of those old victorian swim suits to hide my obesity
has gone tit-over-arse more quickly than any other Sophia thread, and that's saying something.
seems like a nice normal thread to me.
it did take me a while to understand what the bejeebus you were on about though Lars
