Do or Don't

Ok, summer is here and I think I'm comfortable in admitting that going to a nude or topless beach someday is on my bucket list. It probably won't be this year as I haven't been doing as many sit ups as I'd like but I'm getting there. (Because when in Rome...!) But let me ask all of you, going to a nude or topless beach, is this a do or don't for you? Would you ever do it? Have you done it?

I've personally never gone nude at a beach but as a child growing up in Europe it was common to see both girls and boys just wearing small trunks or bikini bottoms for their first ~8-10 years. I probably did myself but don't remember. Also adults will take the liberty to make it a nudist beach if they choose. No sign required! It always seems to be old men though. I think you should do it! I'm not sure I'd be up for taking the bottoms off though.

I have been to one....Lido Beach near Venice. Did not take my top off....I was wearing an OPI cut out one piece, LOL! Not the planner in those days, apparently.

i have gone topless before in the dominican republic but we were at a more euro style resort as opposed to one geared towards americans. it was also the summer after the senior year of high school with friends (and the girls aren't as perky now haha.) i didn't walk around without a top though. i just felt too exposed. just for laying out.

I've done it! It's called Hippie Hollow off of Lake Travis, in Austin, Tx. I will add that I was not topless. hehehehe. Trust me...I am far over a DDD cup and no one would wanna see those. But if you feel comfortable enough, do it! Of course, why not? ...our bodies are gorgeous pieces of work. Everyone there was so relaxed.....

melifaif said...

Oh! Don't forget the sunscreen on the nips. That could hurt. Ouch.

tinajo said...

I´m not comfortable topless and would not go to a beach and sunbade like that - but I´m not bothered by those who do either. To each their own. :-)

Alex said...

Oh man, this would scare me to death! But seriously, go for it!

Dee Stephens said...

I would totally go topless!

Claudia's rosige Zeiten said...

Twenty years ago......Yes!!!!!
But today?????
I`m over fourty....no way!!!!

Do it !!!!

SarahAnn said...

Two summers ago in Greece I was THIS CLOSE to taking my top off though it wasn't officially a nude beach. In hindsight, and now post-baby, I regret that I didn't do it. Because I definitely don't have the boobs I used to now!

Paislea Elyse said...

i would definitely do it!! i would like to lose a few pounds and then count me in!!!

when I go to the beach (hello it's the Côte d'Azur) there are always woman without tops, personally I don't mind BUT you have to be in a certain good shape and minus 40 years old otherwise it's kind of weird I think. When I have to look at the huge breasts of a 60year old woman with weird nipples I'm disgusted, sorry! This sounds so superficial haha but that's how I feel. I've never done it tough, maybe this year? :)

DO! After a few drinks on the beaches of the greek isles, I was all about it. It is freeing, liberating, all that they say and more! I wasn't my slimmest then either but figured, what the heck, might as well cross an item off the bucket list!

Hazel said...

hummm, maybe. If the right opportunity and location presented themselves. I burn easily though (the result of which I don't even want to think about)
If it's on your bucket list you absolutely have to go for it.

I would on a secluded beach, otherwise I wish I was that free! lol

la petite coquine said...

I've been to a few, but I'm such a fair skinned gal that it's rare to see me laying out full clothed, much less topless!

Holly said...

I did it when I was in Greece. It felt wierd at first but after awhile it was kind of fun! It was a little easier because the only person I knew was my husband :)
I say do it!!
Cute blog btw!

Julianna said...

Yes I have. It was a gay beach, so honestly, none of the guys were looking at me, so I was very comfortable.

My advice, do it on vacation. Then you'll never have to see anyone again. :)

And SUNBLOCK!!!!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Hi sweetie pie!

I actually did when I was younger in Greece. I think I was 16 and everyone was topless there so I did it. I also think I went completely nude there one time. Since then I've kept my bikini on but the beach I go to is a nude beach. There isn't that much nudity there but I'll be there the entire summer and said that I could see myself doing the topless thing again sooner or later.

Do it! xoxo

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

So funny, I'm just reading the other comments and it seems like Greece is the place to let loose, huh? :) xoxo

Jen said...

I have to get out more because it seems like I'm the only one who hasn't done it! Now I'm even that much more excited to do it!! ;-)

Tamara Nicole said...

I say do it! We've traveled all over Europe and have been to several topless beaches (mostly Greece, also Nice). It's no big deal at all there, but here everyone would be all pissed off about it (at least the ladies). Hey if you got it flaunt it!

Vivi Díaz said...

Hi! In Spain it is common to see topless women at the beach (any beach), and we also have nude beaches. (And not everybody is fit).
I have sunbathed topless, and it was ok, but be careful and sunscreen! You don't want your breasts to hurt that much.
Try, that's my advice.
Have a great weekend

i have and loved it! it was while in italy last year and it was fabulous. do it!

STYLE'N said...

ha ha I don' think I have but I would...When in Rome right?

Miz.November said...

Totally would. (If with the right traveling companion.)

Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Try it!
Growing up in Europe I had people *women I mean* around me that were topless which was no big deal. Even kids walked around naked, or girls topless until a certain age.
Personally it's nothing for me, but I think it's okay to go topless if you feel like it. And if you want to go all the way, try it. At least you can tell whether or not you like it.

And yes, I just read Robin's comment...the nude older guys are kinda weird. When I see nude beaches or areas and all, it's usually old men. Hmmm. Not saying it's weird, but that's what I've mostly seen so far. Ha!

Lorena said...

I did it for a few minutes and covered up.
Just was not comfortable, i felt like everyone was looking at me !

Tracey said...

Have done in my late teens... Would do it now pregnant as love my body with a big fat bump to hide the real fat that is so stretched out! ha ha.

After this pregnancy maybe never again. Boobs...not so good. Rolls of fat I'm guessing will take a LONG time to totally disappear if ever...also not so good. Hmm we'll see! But nobody wants to be grossed out by the old saggy one trying to relive her youth! ha ha

Tracey said...

And i'm talking topless not full on nudie but whatever floats your boat i guess. Who cares?!

Ginta said...

Topless - yes! Nude - no. I guess I'm not that brave enough. :))

Nikki said...

I don't have a problem with it. We used to frequent a topless beach in Switzerland when I was younger, and we were married on one too. Don't worry, no nipples in our wedding photos ;)

Holly said...

ive done it! its amazing. you wouldnt think it would be as cool as it is, but it totally is!

jess hogue said...

melifaif -- totally love hippy hollow. THE BEST!

i love swimming, sunbathing, or whatever in the buff. WOOT!

as for the old women with the saggy bits, it makes me feel empowered to be out there with them, i mean look at them... they embrace their bodies, "flaws" and all, & don't give a flip what others think. in a way, i think they are more interesting than the toned, tan, and taut bodies of their counterparts. each say and wrinkle tells a story of children births, memories had, food eaten, and places gone. i strive to be that cool when i am older. just one woman's opinion.

We are from Europe, it is normal to go topless and very relaxing and liberating. Here in North America it took a bid of an adjustment to understand that it was uncommon ........
