I think that the last time I actually enjoyed wearing a swimsuit was when I was a teenager. So...more than 10 years ago. :P

High School! Going to sand bars on the river...layin' out in the sun...water skiing...
Just had my 25th HS reunion last year-OMG!! For the last 4 years, I've been wearing huge swim trunks over my swim bottoms because no one wants to see my disgusting a** hanging out of swimming suit! Even the "miracle suit" couldn't work a miracle on me!

At the beach before my 5th child. Now I have ten.
Although after my 9th child we went ballroom dancing and to bars with bands and I got back to a size from my early 20's. It's inactivity and loss of interest in doing things that needs to be remedies. emoticon again and again emoticon

The last time I felt really comfortable in a swim suit was in my early 20's. I would love to lose enough weight and tone up enough to be comfortable in a swim suit by this summer so I can get out there and enjoy the pool and the sun with my kids!!!

I enjoyed wearing a swim suit last summer. I had lost about 25 pounds by then and it wasn't such a big effort to suck the gut in.

I'm sure it been at least 5 years. I say every summer I'm going to wear a 2 piece bathing suit and never do anything about it. I recently lost 45 lb and will be sure to do what I have to to keep this off.

About 5 years...loved that suit.....then I saw the pics and OMG that is not me! Sure enough it was. I am FINALLY doing something about it. I signed up for Body Back a bootcamp style class that starts on Monday and I am doing a Biggest Loser type challenge with some coworkers.....I don't want to see pics of that other person again!

Not since I was 17 years old. I still have the picture that someone took of me tanning on my deck. I have not looked like that since.

Oh how I would love to!

Well I braved it out during last couple of weeks on vacation - and I thank SP for that.

I was lucky to feel ok about myself until I was 50ish. I'd had 4 children and wore whatever shape that left me with pride. Then - and this says something about how I define myself I guess - when the kids hit adulthood and left home, I was my own person again and suddenly felt exposed - a lumpy menopausal middle-aged woman. Stayed in, ate and bewailed my fate and weight.
I lived through about 10 years of this up til this Jan (How my DH coped with it, I don't know!), then found SP, made a start on my weight, shape and energy and I put the tankini on and walked the shore each am I was away - and thought I'm glad to be alive. I have some way to go and I'll never look like I used to but I'm engaging with the world!

Going back through and reading everyone else's responses, it makes me sad that most of us (myself included) have never felt comfortable in a swimsuit, or the last time we did was when we were too young to care. My fiance and I are thinking of going to Ocracoke for our honeymoon this July, so I better be ready by then. I've found the swimsuit I want and I'm dead-set on being able to rock it out.

The last time was almost 30 years ago on my honeymoon. The funny part was my then husband and I were playing around in the ocean, when out of no where a huge wave caught us by surprise and pulled us both under. As we came back up to the surface, he had lost his glasses (blind as a bat without them) and I had lost my bikini top. We never did find either item !emoticon

The last time I felt comfortable in a swimsuit was when I was probably 10 years old. It was before I hit puberty so I didn't have any hips, boobs and was in great shape. I DREAD bathing suit shopping or the idea of pool parties, beaches and hotels with pools.

The last time I attempted to wear a swimsuit I went to a pool party and felt completly uncomfortable. I wore a coverup dress the entire time and didn't enjoy the pool at all.

Maybe when I was 11 or so. Never really felt that comfortable. I have a shallow hip socket so my leg is funny and has always been wrinkly up by my thigh and hip because of it. Even when I was at my fittest that leg was wrinkly :(

I have never felt comfortable wearing a swimsuit, even as a child. The funny thing is, I look back at my 17 year old self in pictures and I thought I was fat and OMG I was soooo tiny in comparison to how I am now!

I think the last time that I really was happy wearing a swimsuit was when I was in elementary school. I developed or should I say over-developed super early and since then I haven't really been comfortable. Don't get me wrong, I have had swimsuits that I loved and that looked good on me, but I was still uncomfortable.

Sadly, I don't think I've ever felt confident enough in a bathing suit to enjoy it. Even as a young girl, I felt I was a little too chunky.
But I know that will change! I can't wait to feel good in a bathing suit in time for my vacation!

I think it was the summer before my freshman year of high school (has it really been nine years ago?!) I only wore the top though, kept my shorts on with the bottoms, so I don't really think this counts.

I wore a one piece last summer, but haven't felt very good in a two pice since I had my son 4 years ago. That is going to change for this summer!

I wear a swimsuit now, but would love to look good in one. I swim after dark because I burn very easily, so it is not that noticable.

emoticonI do not remember ever feeling great in a bathing suit. I have always felt self conscious, even when I did not carry any extra pounds.
I hope that this will change one day. Sigh...

1994 ~ That is really sad now that I think about it. I use to LOVE swimming and being in a swimsuit. It is time for a change. I hope that Zumba 3 days a week with supplemental days of P90X will do the trick! I have 50 lbs to lose. I CAN DO IT!!!

Summer 2009, a few months before the illness that caused my weight gain hit. I'd been working hard for a few years at that point to get in shape, and it was the first time I ever wore a bikini. It really hurt to lose all my work so quickly, but now I know I can do it!

Before that, I hadn't felt comfortable in a swimsuit since before I noticed my body... probably sometime in elementary school, in my tomboy phase.

The last time that I enjoyed wearing a swimsuit was 2004, 6 years ago! I gained 20lbs in 2005 from quitting smoking and got pregnant in 2006, gave birth in 2007, have not recovered since then. Not only is my weight an issue about wearing a bikini now, but I also have stretch marks on my stomach and sides and also my boobs are lifeless, lol. My goal is to lose 20 lbs by 12/13/10. This is my company christmas party and i want to look great! Also I live on the north shore of Oahu, so during the winter, we have great surf and crowded beaches, so I want to finally look like a hot mama. I just turned 30 and it freaked me out, I need to take care of myself more than ever, since I'm no longer in my twenties...tear:(emoticon

I replied several months ago that I didn't know if I'd ever enjoyed wearing a bathing suit. I just wanted to update everybody - THIS CAN CHANGE!!!

For the first time in my life I felt comfortable in a bathing suit and actually thought it looked kind of good on me. We went camping over the 4th of July weekend and I spent the better of 2 full days in my new bathing suit. YOU can do it too!!!

I don't know the year, but in my late teens/early 20's - so roughly 15-20 years ago. I'm hoping to find one I like this year and then I can take back my post.emoticon

I always enjoy wearing a bathing suit, because it means swimming or lazing around. When was the last time I wasn't embarrassed when walking around in one?

I've enjoyed wearing the swimsuit IN the water -- that was a blast! It's a mind over matter when it comes to walking down the beach or to and from a pool. Something's have to be done to get to the good part.

It will be nice to feel something different on land though . . .
