I Asked 22 College Guys What They Think About One-Piece Bathing Suits For Girls

"I wonder if they make skinny dipping easier or more difficult."

One-piece bathing suits have become all the rage recently and with brands like Aerie showing how flattering they look on different body types, it seems like more women are opting to join the revolution.

I thought it would be interesting to hear what guys think about these kinds of bathing suits versus the traditional two-piece.

My intentions for doing this poll were simply out of curiosity, NOT because I think women should wear what men prefer to see. The responses I got were overwhelmingly positive, but there were a few guys who thought this was a toxic question. This was literally just for fun, but I appreciate the fact that you think women are actually dressing for you.

Don't flatter yourself, no matter what you have to say, we are always going to dress however the fuck we want.

1. "Girls can wear whatever they want to wear."

2. "As a guy who sees more inner beauty than physical, one-piece suits seem a bit more sexy to me. I would say the same thing about two-piece suits because all I care about is the girl, not her clothing."

3. "I think they look good and are a great alternative for girls who don't feel comfortable wearing two-pieces. Anything to get these ladies to the beach."

4. "I think they are hiding their insecurities."

5. "It's up to the girl. If she feels comfortable in it and wants to rock it, then hell yeah, wear it!"

6. "Every bathing suit is more about how you wear/style it. Some are modest while others are...less...modest. I don't think I'd ever tell a girlfriend which kind to wear, she should wear whatever she's comfortable in."

7. "They're a great option for women who want to be modest and they can also be sexy and stylish."

8. "I wonder if they make skinny dipping easier or more difficult."

9. "There are a lot of options out there and while some of them can be modest, some one-pieces are very minimal and attractive to the eye."

10. "They can be just as sexy as wearing a bikini."

11. "Sure, they can be more modest, but as long as my girlfriend is comfortable, I could care less."

12. "It shows that they are confident enough to wear whatever the hell they want."

13. "I don't think they're necessarily insecure, I've seen plenty of girls wear one-pieces and haven't thought for a minute that they 'hated' their bodies."

14. "Girls who wear one-pieces aren't afraid to be stand out and I love that."

15. "As long as I don't have to go bathing suit shopping with her, she can wear whatever her heart desires."

16. "I go shopping with my girlfriend quite often and I've seen them EVERYWHERE. I don't see anything wrong with them."

17. "Sideboob. That is all."

18. "I'm a fan of any kind of swimsuit."

19. "I mean...I'd rather see her in a two-piece but I'll probably get a lot of shit for saying that so...yeah, I don't mind one-pieces."

20. "I don't know why, but I've seen girls buying them just so they can match with their friends."

21. "Any bathing suit is fantastic."

22. "Some of them can be pretty cheeky — if you know what I mean."

9 Things I Gained When My 34B Turned Into A 34-Free

It’s crazy how ridiculous people act over a woman embracing being just that... a woman.

I remember being in third grade when the first comment about my weight plummeted me into a pit of embarrassment. It was in the middle of class when we were discussing our ancestries and when my teacher mentioned whales, some kid blurred out, “Is that where Cassie’s from because she’s so fat?” The classroom erupted with laughter, so I ran out of the room and cried in the crusty bathroom stall.

I had always been overweight ever since I was young, and it wasn’t until middle school that the pounds finally seemed to start shedding off. I was starting to become a young woman, and it started to show — fast.

The chub eventually toned to curves, and all of a sudden I found myself needing to upgrade from a training bra to wearing an actual bra — the day I had been waiting for since I was a little girl.

For years following that transition I always felt as if I had to wear a bra or it wasn’t socially acceptable. To not wear a bra was seen as horrendous where I’m from, and so it wasn’t until I graduated high school that I stopped caring and wearing, and I haven’t had a regret since.

With losing the bra I have gained so much more, and here are a few of the greatest lessons I’ve learned since beginning my journey:

1. You will get stares, and many of them will be glares

It’s crazy how ridiculous people act over a woman embracing being just that... a woman.


Once you get over the initial shock of freedom (in other words the awkward nipping and bouncing experienced) having to wear a bra will feel like a chore.

3. Anyone who has an issue with you going braless is not worth your time in the first place

They're a natural, beautiful part of a woman's body. Not to mention, your mother did not breastfeed you only for you to grow up and hate on boobs. C’mon now.

4. The see-through shirts will get you every time

At this point, I don’t even want to know the number of strangers that know the color of my nipples.

5. Bras are ridiculously expensive

Okay, not everyone is as materialistic as me and can probably find a bargain bra for under $10. BUT, if you’re like me and many other women I know, we like to buy branded bras like Victoria Secret or Calvin Klein, both of which carry a pretty price tag of sometimes over $50! Now think back to all of the bras you’ve purchased in your lifetime...I’ll let that one sink in.

6. Going braless is empowering AF

You have rebelled against the convention of needing to wear a bra, you can now do anything. Consider yourself a superhero. Extra badass points if yours are pierced.

7. It’s not always sunshine and rainbows

Just like with your hair, your boobs have bad days too. Some mornings you wake up and lefty is looking a little lopsided, or righty is looking a little rattled. We have all had our own days where we’ve needed a break, your girls are no different. Throw on a big hoodie and give ‘em the day off.

8. Your boobs are not the same size

Don’t freak! It’s completely normal to be asymmetrical and it’s nothing to be ashamed about. The bigger boob is just a bully and picks on the other one, making her feel small. It makes complete sense if you think about it.


...which is exactly why yours don’t deserve to be hidden behind a bra. Let the ladies loose!
