Don't worry - everyone does their thing. Topless (yes, there's quite a few), string bikinis, regular bikinis and lots and lots of one piecers. Men in long suits, speedos and some strings too! Believe me you lose your inhibitions once you're there and enjoy yourself! Have a GREAT time!

Hey everyone,

My thoughts -

First, no matter what size you are there are going to be lots of people there bigger and smaller. I was amazed at how free I feel at the beach (normally fairly self conscious), but I can't say that anyone else seems to care what I am doing or wearing. After the first day or two, I strapped on the old two-piecer and did my thing without a care in the world to my cellulite:>) or lumpy bits!

Second, I am normally a lovely shade of "Canadian grey". You know, so pale I'm kind of a blue-ish white. Before our Christmas vacation I went and got a Mystic Tan, ie. a spray tan at my local tanning salon. And I have to say that it took all of 5 minutes and the next day when it had fully developed, I looked a gorgeous shade of bronze. WOW! It lasted a week and wasn't patchy or fake looking. When we got to our resort, I didn't have to worry about looking like a beluga whale while trying to get a little colour. Awesome!

Have a great vacation!

Just think how white you were when you left and how dark you will be when you get back. It's refreshing to see so many of us feel the same way! I won't know anyone there. I asked my husband if he minded me being bigger than I was and not a skinny one that I once long ago was. He said that the skinny ones are to look at and I am the one he loves to be with.

Isn't that romantic.
