I'm going to the beach today and I'm really nervous adout it. I'm almost 17 and I have always worn one piece swim suits. All my friends wear bikinis and tease me about being a prude. My mom took me shopping for a new swim suit. My old one didn't fit anymore. I had a growth spurt up top. I wanted a one piece but she said it was time for a two piece. I tried a bunch on and picked out one that covered more than the rest. I'm in pretty good shape. I run track at school and go for runs most days. I'm just not comfortable showing so much of mysel. I wouldnt go out in public in my underwear why would I go to the beach in basicly that. Then there's the whole shaving thing... I don't even want to go anymore. ill probably just end up wearing a tshirt over it. My mom says it will be good for my to embrace my body and to not let other peoples opinions effect me. I feel naked and exposed in it. I've gone up two bra sizes in a year. I'm bigger than most of my friends. Guys stair all the time as it is. I don't want to put them out there on display. I love my mom but she first get it. I'm not ashamed of my body. I just don't want to show it to the entire world.
