    that one was “ok” to me, I didn’t mind the pattern as much as the colors
    used in the pattern. the first was was cute but, wool, no…

    I love how they all looked great in all the different styles, and didn’t
    all need to have the same unrealistic body type to do so :)

    common to see bikinis that cover your butt :P

  15. Natalie1729 says:

    How in the hell do people get used to wearing bikinis around their parents
    and other family members? It’s sooo awkward. I bought my first bathing suit
    in years last summer and I only wore it in front of my sister and friends.
    :/

  19. TheBermuda says:

    This video was super fun and cute, and I loved all of the models’ poses!
    One comment: Today, I know there’s technically a wide variety of swimsuits
    available, but in reality it’s very hard to find anything modest for women
    who don’t want to show off their bodies. Even when I find modest suits,
    they’re usually made for bigger ladies, because it’s assumed that all
    thinner women want to be reveal their figures. So total freedom is not here
    yet!
