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

      Congratulations, get ready for the ride and hold on. I started HRT about 14 months ago at 41. I have loved every minute of my journey thus far. I won't lie, it's a roller coaster. Good luck on your journey and do keep us posted.    Hugs    Shawnna

      My GP finally received the confirmation from Daventry GIC to prescribe hormones for me. I'll be on leuprorelin injections to stop production of T and estradiol valerate tablets. Shame I have to wait until after the weekend for the pharmacy to get them in, but I've waited this long so a few more days don't matter too much. Looks like I'll be on HRT in time for my 46th birthday on Wednesday.

      Here we go again Carolyn!!! You throw meaningful articles out there that usually result in really good  debates, thank you !!!   I have read two books by Jen Boylan and she is as real as they get. I also like that she's from Maine !!   The listed article really hit home while reading a quote from Kristen Beck, “What you wear, what color you are, your religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity has no basis on whether you are a criminal or not.”  Yes indeed. I support Eric Snowden and the courage it took for him to expose unprecedented abuses of power by the United States. His motives were clear, his intentions were more than obvious. Perhaps I still need more understanding,  but I have yet to wrap my head around the motives and intentions of the information released by Chelsea Manning...??? All I do know is that there is a sea of negativism surrounding her  and now her unqualified run for public office.   I spend hours every week at the  VA hospital attending LGBT group meetings. The horrible comments and ridicule I see on a weekly basis toward our transgender Vets walking the halls is unmatched by what I have experienced in public. A good friend straightened me out on this. He says the VA is filled with  right wingers. Yes it appears this is true. Since this whole Chelsea Manning running for Senate thing started it has gotten even worse, trust me!   I have posted on this site previously  that I merely wish Manning could be grateful for being free and go live a quiet, happy  and public free life. Jen Boylan echos this. I oh- so- admire the piss and vinegar Manning has but she is in fact a convicted felon embodied in a sea of perceived public hatred.   Like the hateful Vets at the VA, I don't think we will ever change their minds about accepting trans humans. . Not in this lifetime. Say what you will but it is my true belief that we need positive examples. Though she's not my favorite but Kristen Beck is right up there. Retired Navy Seal that served with honor and distinction. The author of this article, Professor Jennifer Boylan is another. This list goes on and on, doctors, lawyers, politicians, successful entrepreneurs . I support Chelsea manning as a trans woman and human being. I do not support her for a  Senate run, and her public exposure merely adds fuel to the fire of hatred already directed toward innocent trans people like me and you ......   In the brutal world of public opinion there is a saying; "Its not what you are but what people think you are."  I love and deeply respect our transgender community. You will never find such courageous people as represented in the transgender world. We proudly serve in  every profession, military branch, labor force and service industries. We never ask for recognition or a pat on the back, all most of us want is to be allowed to live our authentic lives free of murder, rape and ridicule.  Is Manning helping that cause?? What is your opinion??   Sincerely,   Tess

      Thanks for your thoughts and especially this, Laura Beth. Many of us may have faced clues along the way and didn't understand them until much later in life. It wasn't until I came out to myself, with the help of a therapist, that the confusion I faced throughout my life finally made sense. And yes, the future is brighter.   Gwen

      Good morning everyone!❤   Happy Birthday rorylm!🎂 Hope you have a wonderful day!   Lots of love, Timber Wolf🐾
    • Charlize
      Ms. Boylan has such an honest rational voice.  Manning's candidacy may or not be helpful for our community.  It may go nowhere but she does have every reason to be angry. In my opinion did little more than was done by reporters in the past who were actually able to report what they saw during Viet Nam rather than only reciting what they were told by the military.   Many may not agree with me about that and that is fine but allowing us to see some of the atrocities of the war was in some ways an heroic, if illegal, act.  That being said i'm certainly not sure that makes her any more qualified for office than being a slumlord in NY does.   Hugs,   Charlize
