    So what swim suit styles to you guys like? I'm looking to buy a cute one but a size or two too small and hang it up in my room for some motivation.

    I kind of like this style but I'm having a hard time finding many for option.

    I like bandeau tops, I hate triangle bikinis, "tankinis", or halters... They're just boring, everybody wears them.

    I just bought this one in black and it's so flattering, I love it :luv:

    It's from H&M, they have a lot of unique-looking suits on the cheap side. And they are actually really good quality, as they're not a part of their Junior line.

    that one is pretty cute. I like the look of the bandeau the best, I'm just hoping it looks ok on my body. I'm 5'7" with a larger frame and what my dad calls an athletic build. I'm working on this weight loss thing but my thighs might be a lost cause. I'm a 34 C also, am I going to have trouble keeping a bandeau to stay up?

    @LRian - I know that the ones at H&M have a thin line of this sort of sticky rubbery stuff on the inside of their bandeau bikinis (If you have a no-slip headband from LuluLemon, it's the same as that) that helps them stay in place. As for your build, I think that it would work fine on a curvier frame -- I'm not being all politically correct here haha, if you're only a 34C you are curvy, not fat -- as long as you're relatively proportionate.

    And if you're worried about thighs/hips, stay faaar away from tie-up bikinis! I have wider and softer hips, and those damn little strings are the devil. So unflattering.

    I really like bandeau tops as well. One trend I've noticed is also tops that look like sports bras; I'm loving these! For some reason, my boobs always look really funky in the triangle style.

    SatelliteEyes- thanks for the feedback, I just might have to order one of those.

    Thin2012- Is this the type you were talking about? I think they'd loud really good on a slim thin frame. http://images1.freepeople.com/is/image/FreePeople/23923253_023_d?$zoom-super$

    I like the pin-up inspired swimsuit trend! It's so classy :grin:

    I also like simple solid-colored bikinis. Especially black or white because it is easy to wear it with a colorful sarong.

    I love it when they are embroided, or have a girly pattern or with ruffles. Also the one-piece bandeaus are cute too.

    And normally I'm all for simple swimsuits, but this Prada is eye-candy!

    What do you guys think should chubbies wear at the beach? Bikinis or Swimsuits?

    Sometimes I think the real fatties should cover themselves up, but on the other hand it's not working anyway, because you can still see the fat.

    But what about the in-betweens, who are not skinny (yet) but (very) chubby?

    I personally haven't been swimming with friends for years, I only go with my BF to places where nobody knows me.

    I think they should wear what they want to wear. If they have the confidence to do it thats great, no need to put them down. Be it a bikini or leggings or whatever. I've seen a lot of fatties wear tight leggings, see through tights, revealing clothes etc and inside I am laughing (some of them just look ridiculous, especially ones showing their large panties) but everyone has a right to wear whatever they want provided that it's not inappropriate.
