If I am 13 and I am going to play in the pool. Should I wear a bikini or not? They are all the rage for teens. I don't want to embarrass myself.
Don't do anything you feel uncomfortable with just because everyone else is. You can still look great in a one-piece suit or tankini. Just wear whatever you want to.
I have a big belly, what swimsuit should I wear?
I would suggest a one piece or tankini in a dark color, with some ruffles on the stomach/chest area. The ruffles and the dark color will disguise your stomach.
I have big thighs and I would like to hide my stretch marks on my belly. What type of swimsuit should I get?
I'd recommend an open-back one piece. Pick a color or pattern that's flattering to draw attention away from your thighs.
I have an unusually large chest for my age and a big butt. I am also a little chubby, but I feel like I am fat in the belly and my thighs are huge. What swimsuit do I pick?
You could wear a one piece with padding fitted into it. Also, if you feel like your thighs and belly are fat, you could wear some long, high-waisted shorts. A big butt is also considered attractive, but if you don't want the extra attention, the shorts I mentioned earlier are great at hiding that.
If I'm fat, should I wear a one piece swim suit?
You should wear whatever you think is cute and comfortable. If that's a one piece, awesome. If you like two pieces, go for it. It's your body.
How should I prevent my nipples from showing on my swimsuit?
I would consider buying a swimsuit with padding built into it. If you can't find one in your size, pull your hair forward so that it covers your chest if your hair is long enough. Most people won't be staring at your chest, but it is good to use these options.

I'm 13 years old, 5'9 and around 120 lbs, can I still get a one-piece, or what style should I wear?

Consider trying the swimwear selection at a lingerie store. You can find a very supportive top in your bra size that's still really cute.

If I were you, I would wear a full piece (normal), maybe with an open back.

Yes, that seems perfect! You can also find a rash guard which has sleeves like a shirt, but is made of swimsuit material.

No. Most swimsuits have pads in the tops that act as a bra. Panties are not needed, either.
My bust size is medium, my waist is x-large, and my hips are small on the size chart, so what size swimsuit should I get?

Yes. You may be able to find some in an athletic-wear store or online.

A bikini would be the best option, but you can wear whatever type of suit you are the most comfortable with.

Should I find a padded swimsuit to wear if I have size 36C breasts?
It's entirely up to you. If you think a padded swimsuit is more comfortable, then you should wear that. However, you shouldn't feel any pressure to wear a padded swimsuit if that's not your preference.
I'm young and a bit chubby, and I want to make my belly, thighs, and breasts look smaller, what do I wear?
A tankini with a high-waist bottom and a loose, ruffled top would be best. If you can, try to find one that cuts low on the legs rather than rising high over the hips.

I'm 12. How do I find a swimsuit that won't show my nipples?

I ordered a swim shirt. Should I wear a tank top inside?
With swim shirts, a swim top or suit is worn under the swimsuit. Support of the bust with a swim suit is important for women who have a developed chest and swim shirts do not provide this. A tank top might be fine in lieu of a swimsuit.

Think patterns, but not too flashy. A plain top with a patterned bottom is the way to go. This will draw attention to your hips.
