With late-Spring/Summer approaching, I've been thinking about swimsuits, and I want to try something new this year. Because I'm male-bodied, and my legs were (until recently) very hairy, I was pretty much stuck with board-short style trunks. Now that I've been working on de-hairing my body, I really want to try a one-piece with shorts that end around mid-thigh. I can't really wear a bikini, as it wouldn't quite look right (no boobs, you see).

So, what do you wear when you go swimming? One-piece? Bikini? Board-shorts? What?

I'm planning on a one piece with a skirt - they help ladies my age to not look like the are trying to recapture their youth! :rolleyes:

Love ya,

Sally

Recapture your youth?! Why, you're still very much in your youth, young lady. ;3

But regardless, skirted one pieces are cute. I approve. <3

Thank you, especially for the part about my youth! :blush:

The other option would be to wear a one piece with a higher neck like a tank top with the leg openings in a 'boy' cut - those are cute and hide the areas that we need to hide!

Love ya,

Sally

You're more than welcome.

While I agree that boy-cut one pieces are good, I's actually rather have an extra layer to help hide the fact that I've got narrow hips. If not shorts, then a skirt wouldn't be bad at all.

I voted board shorts. But that's only if I get dragged to the pool or the beach, which I generally avoid like the plague because I hate water. I can swim fine, but the whole floating in water and being surrounded by it kind of freaks me out. I dunno if you were looking for answers from FTMs though.

Everyone's welcome to answer here, of course.

I personally like water when it's warm, but I have circulation issues, I think; I can't even keep from shivering in lukewarm water, let alone cold water.

Ummm - I hide!

Too busty for a guy, not enough for a girl - or at least last year.

I wear shorts and a heavy teeshirt in the pool - refuse to cook in the sun anymore.

Maybe in another year?

That's what I'd wear too. A skirted one piece swimsuit. I haven't been swimming in 5 years now.

For lap swimming, I wear jammers, a binder, and a sleeveless compression shirt. When I swim for fun, though, I usually wear trunks/board shorts, a binder, and either a t-shirt or a compression shirt. I'm rather looking forward to swimming in the lake this summer. :)

I went out and bought swim trunks the other day. =3 Didn't get to use them, but now I can wear them, a binder, and black shirt and actually SWIM again! I haven't enjoyed swimming since I hit puberty...My Mom used to joke that I was a dolphin before that. =P

I wear board shorts. but something more neutral would probably be nicer, maybe like a one piece with shorts? or maybe just a skirt (topless) :P but I'd probably look so weird

Hi,

I just found the poll and want to take part of it. I like one piece swimsuits most. In Germany is a group of real men who wear one piece swimsuit in public. Sometimes it is accepted, sometimes not. So for all MTF who look still like a man, I think it is possible to wear it public if it is not a super female swimsuit with high cutted legs and strange colors. What I like are the swimsuits for sport with the race neck. They are very tight and helps tucking. Okay I never try this outside of my home.

What you can also try to use is a triathlon swimsuit. Both male and female version looks nearly the same. They are with a close bag and with short legs. If it is one also for cycling, than it has a soft pad inside and it is perfect for tucking.

My dream is to go out one day in a tiny bikini.

Greetings

Nelly

Swim trunks and a binder. When my hair's wet I pass better so I get weird looks about the binder, since it looks like I'm wearing trunks over a one-piece, but I don't want to wear a shirt while swimming.

Soo many choices... i two years time (SRS) I'll probably wear a bikini.

For now... a one piece and either very tight panties a or a wrap-around :)

I love bikinis tho...

Maybe one like borat's??? ^^

Hmmm :D

Well anyway, we're heading into winter here soooo. I'm doing boot, trenchcoat, long skirt, jersey, scarve and pj/slipper shopping with mommy :D

Unfortunately, I do not like to swim much because of my body. However, I convinced my mother to buy two versions of bathing suit (as I am still under cover XD;; ) A girls one, is a one piece. (I do not plan to wear.)

But being a guy, I opted for board shorts and possibly a tank top with something to keep chest down on top. I am only an A-CUP in those female sizes, so it is awkward; but a little believable when compressed. (I have very wide hips though, despair! Board shorts cover that so much better than speedoes or anything else.)

Someday, I will not need a shirt while swimming! *glimmer of hope shines*

For MtF though, a lot of friends on my art site have said one-pieces or tankini (tank top bikini things?) with the skirt-bottom is a safe bet.

Of course these days, a lot of people swim in shorts and a t-shirt! Hurray for farmers tans!! XD

      I've come to the realization that my journey to where I am at today started some 40 years ago, if not earlier. I started to cross dress before my teens and eventually got caught by my Mom. I stayed in the closet for many years with my parents being the only ones to know, they didn't support me at all. Looking back I have come to realize that I outed myself many times to various women who I happened to encounter in everyday life while out shopping. They were accepting of me and didn't draw any attention my way while I was shopping. One older lady I remember from Scotland made a point of helping me every time I was in the store to find whatever I was looking for with a huge smile on her face. This was way before I even thought about going out dressed female. Laura would emerge for awhile then would vanish within the closet for a time.   I often wonder how well did I do at hiding in the closet, I remember being teased while in high school about how I stood and walked. Was my fake facade not covering everything as I thought it was. In my twenties I was in the closet living male by day and as much as possible female at night within my bedroom. During the mid to later part I was in college and at night I would put on one of my female outfit to unwind in. As many know college life has its challenges to keep ones privacy, ones sneaking into each others rooms looking in the closets and drawers. Yes, I did have someone get into my room the one year and find my female clothes but there was no mention of it from anyone. I would remain in the closet for another 18 years before Laura came out and wouldn't be put back. I started to dress more female around the house and eventual to the point of going out every time as Laura.   So I say to the ones still searching and questioning, look to your past for some of the answers because they very well could be there. This is not a short journey we under take but one of many pitfalls and rewards to be each discovered along the way. I am sure others here can relate to what I have said about the hiding within the closet afraid to come out but have and seen how wonderful it is to be our true selves.We can not allow fear of the unknown to rule our lives for one day more because the future is brighter without it.    Laura Beth

      Hi sweetie. Welcome to the forum. There are a lot of great people here, and really good advice to help you on your path. This path isn't easy by any means, but nothing great comes easy.   Erin

      Welcome, Tali. I'm so glad you found the courage to say hello to TransPulse. I hope you find this a welcoming and informative place, and a safe place to just be yourself. I also have social anxiety and have found life my complicated with my transgender issues. But, I have found support here, and I'm fortunate to have a few people in my life who accept me. I hope you also find the support you want/need as you make your journey, which will provide happiness too. The happiness will come!!   Gwen

      It sounds like you have a good plan for the future and are getting through the present difficulties with a grace that deserves praise.  I remember the humiliation of being called by my male name in crowded waiting rooms.  Those times were instrumental in getting me to make the necessary steps to change my legal status. HRT and living as yourself are certainly major steps along your journey as is finding a style that works well and makes you feel comfortable as yourself. Thanks for the update and happy birthday!   Hugs,   Charlize

        Hi Mary,   I have slightly more than 20 good trans female friends that I speak with on at least a weekly basis. I have never felt alone and if I really need someone to talk to there is always someone nearby. My friends situation is very different. Don't know what the stats are but there appear to be far less FTM than MTF humans out there. That is stating the friend situation only for him. Now, since he's attracted to cis females, the numbers diminish even further. No clue for how many cis women are looking for transmales  but the number seems to be like really really low. So, to me, online dating is a no brainer.  I've checked a few places and the suggestions on dating sites are not many.   Good for you doing the online dating thing. I as well think we should be up front about who we are and I also think it can be safe providing that common sense is used       I really appreciate your view,   Tess

        Thanks Vicky. Some people like very much to be part of a couple, me being one of them. Good luck at your weddings!!!

      Hi Tali, one thing that helped me was getting out of the house and meeting others. My family members all responded differently  to it. My nephews were pretty much a shrug. It took time for some to come to terms with it too.   Welcome to Transpulse!  hugs, Marcie
