How can I get my mom to let me get a bikini? I'm 13 and everyone's wearing them now.

I don't think my mom would really want me wearing one even though everyone else is at this age. I mean I don't have a bad body or anything...

WRONG!!! EVERYONE is NOT wearing them. My daughter is 14, and no way she is wearing a bikini! The only reason to wear one is to show off your bod to guys. At 13, thats not only inappropriate, but dangerous. It isn't just boys your age that are gonna be looking. Do you really want some 50 year old perv drooling over your body and making plans to violate it? Cover up hunny!

Honestly, stick with your mom's wishes. You can look cute in a one-piece, and you can actually swim without worrying about your bits and pieces popping out. Don't be so concerned about following the crowd. You will look a lot classier in a one-piece than you would in dental floss and bandaids anyway.

I like that term and I haven't even brought up the subject yet so I'm not going against anything but I like the terms you used

Bits and pieces, lol? Seriously, one-piece suits are just so much more comfortable!

Well to start off, I would get a less exposed bikini, or something like that. I have a bikini that doesn't expose my chest so much. I would tell your mom that all of your friends are wearing them, and that it wouldn't be so exposing, if that's what she's worried about (which I think that's why she doesn't want you wearing them *guessing*) All in all, goof luck!

I would never let my daughter under aged 16 wear a 2-piece. There are gross people out there, pedophiles. I also think a bikini is immature. It calls more attention to your body than to you. A guy should be more interested in YOU than your body. I am 37 and wear one-piece swimsuits. I am petite and "well-developed" but I want a man to see ME first. I am more than a sexy body.

Not everyone! I never wear bikinis (well, I wouldn't be comfortable at all in one!) I'm 15 but I LOVE tankinis! Listen to your mom. There's real weirdos out there.... :D
