bathing suits, is everyone in bikin's?!

A little nervous, seems like all the photo's I see of are people in bikini's.... Is there any overweight people at these resorts? Does anyone at the adult only resorts wear one peice suits? I am do not have a bikini body or anywhere close.

Lots Jane, particularly at adult only resorts, because the age range is bumped up. No worries. People just tend to take pictures of women as scantily clad as possible. What resorts are you thinking of?

Jane, I bet you are a lovely woman in a bikini or a one piece. Please where what you feel most comfortable in and don't worry what anyone else is wearing.

Have a great time wherever you go!!!!

jane d, We stayed at the Bahia Ambar two months ago, and about half the women, were wearing a one piece bathing suit, my wife does not have the body she had twenty years ago, and doesn't really care that she isn't able to wear a bikini. We have raised a wonderful family, the youngest being 27, the oldest 32, and she is past any desire to believing that she should be in a bikini, we both had the days of being slender, and in excellent physical shape, so it doesn't matter that she doesn't fit into a size 8 anymore. Do be Happy within yourself, and that You are Healthy enough to go on a tropical vacation. You will be in the majority of women that wear a one piece bathing suit on the beach or at the pool. At the Bahia Ambar, which is Adults Only, only about 25% of the women are in bikinis. Best Wishes, Be Happy, and Enjoy ! Leo & Sue

People wear whatever they are comfortable in! It's really not all about what your body looks like, it's how you feel wearing the suit! If you love the way your suit makes you feel go for it! If you don't.....splurge on a new one! Don't worry, be happy, your on vacation! I dress up more than a lot of people at night, cuz my husband likes me too! Others think I'm crazy sometimes, but I feel good and it's the only time I get to use my dresses! Do as you are comfortable doing!

I'm humongous (UK size 22/24) I wear swimming suits, swim dresses and also shorts and bikini top. I'm sure I look like a hephalump in all of the above but I don't care. If I wear a bikini it's purely because I'm far too melted to wear anything else not because it makes me feel sexy lol.
