Men are so critical of womens bodies yet they can walk around with a beer gut sagging to thier knees

Bikini's are better, but If your a walrus you probably shouldnt wear one. Lots of girls may have a little baby pooch and I dont see anything wrong with wearing a bikini as long as your belly isnt loppng over the top

Same rules apply to speedos....if you have the body for it, wear it.

I think people know if they have the body for it.
Like in the personal ads when they write: HWP (height weight proportionate).

I know some very overweight men who think everyone is fat except them!

I think, if you love to swim....go for it, and don't worry about a little extra weight.

Both men and women, it's their vacation and they can wear what they please. Truth be known though most ( male and female) look better covered up a bit. Not that it's THAT important.

My opinion is if you have the body then wear a bikini. On the other hand, I have seen a lot of one piece suits that look great also.

I'm a fat, old man who realizes it.

But I vote bikini for the skinny girls and muu-muus for the fat ladies!

As a 44 year old WOMAN I have to chime in. If YOU feel comfortable in a bikini wear it! I am the mother of four, but on a cruise with my husband I am just a women and I make the most of it, bikini and all.

Wearing a sexy suit and looking good usually only works with someone who feels good wearing it. If your not comfortable wearing a bikini (or other small suit), then it shows.
But, to answer the question, I cast my vote for the bikini.

I think if you are comfortable, wear it! If something offends my eyes, I will simply look away. I would LOVE to be comfie in my own skin, but I'm not. I certainly applaud those who are!!!

Default One Piece

The past few years have shown a great improvement in the styling and materials used in swim / sun suits. In my opinion, a nice one piece looks as good on a slender frame as a two piece. I have seen many two piece suits on "one piece" bodys, but not vice versa. This comes from a very large guy who doesn't even look presentable in a XXL boxer shorts swim suit.

I agree with most of the others, ie: if you're comfortable in a bikini, then wear it. When on vacation, do what makes you feel good. Yep, I've seen some that could look better in another type of suit, but what the heck, they're having a good time. 8)
