If You Are OverWeight Do You Wear A Swimsuit In Public?

I am overweight and I don't really care if someone likes the way I look or not. I'm going to wear my suit and swim with my son whenever I feel like it.  I have a 2 piece but it's not a bikini-like two piece, it covers my stomach and the bottom is a skirt/short type deal.  If someone doesn't like the way I look they can look the other way.

No, but only because I won't swim in lakes or ponds and I won't go past my knees in the ocean because I almost drowned in the ocean when I was a kid.

i am overweight and no i do not wear a swimming suit. i really don't care what other people think, i am just not comfortable with it. but i am not big on swimming anyways. so i don't even go anywhere where i would wear a swimming suit anyways. during the summer months i prefer to stay indoors in the ac. i don't like being outdoors during the summer. just way too hot.

Yes I do. I wear a tasteful suit though. It's an actual tankini top (that comes all of the way over my stomach) and the bottoms are a skirt that my ass cheeks DONT hang out of. I've never felt so comfortable in a bathing suit before, even when I was skinny.

I have a one piece and wear a white t-shirt over it while swimming. I have looked and looked for a one piece with like a skirt, but can't find one that fits. I've also looked for the kind you have, but again, I can't find my size.

Yes I am overweight. :( I wear board shorts, black ones. With a tankini top and a tank top... I wear the tank top just to cover my back because I burn super easile.

I wore a tankini when I was overwight, obese, and even when I was morbidly obese.
