I f I am ever going anywhere near water I simply wear my tee shirt and shorts!!!! I used to wear bikinis when I was younger,as well as a really stunning one piece ! loved to wear under shorts so it looked like a fabulous top!
Fran, I think our wish is coming true. I was out with a friend just a couple of days ago and saw some very nice bathers that were sort of like a skivvie with bermuda shorts. I think they are called rash suits (?) . . . . help me out, young people . . . am I on the right track?
I used to wear tiny bikini and in the mid 60s wore a bikini made of stretchy towelling, blue candy stripes. We bought them at Capri in Sydney. My friend had the same in pink and we were asked to cover up or leave Bondi Beach. Must have been insane.
I have just recently started to learn swimming and I wonder why I waited so long. It is absolutely amazing to swim. I'm a bit shy (attributing to the culture back in India) to wear a swim suit, so I wear rashie and board shorts.
