The Start of Minimizing my Swimsuit
Once I committed in college to wearing just thong and bikini underwear, the next step was to think about trying a swim bikini. This notion started the spring semester of my sophomore year of college. I always saw the offerings while shopping for underwear and I liked the look of me in bikini underwear, so I’d figured I’d like the look of a swim bikini too. So one day when I was looking at ordering some more thongs and bikinis from Kiniki’s, I checked out their swimsuit line. I found their Amazon swim brief (actually a string bikini) that looked like it would be a nice suit. For some reason I decided on the color lime, but no clue why since it would make me stick out like a sore thumb. Not the best choice in color for someone shy!
When it arrived it was as expected. Bright in color, but felt great on and good support. Now just had to wait until the weather warmed up to actually wear it. Once summer break hit and the weather was nice, I headed out to find a secluded place to try out my new swim bikini. Actually, it wasn’t too hard with a river running through my hometown and lots of woods. I decided to check out a creek that I knew had some fairly deep areas in it. Once I got to what I thought would be a good spot, I looked around just to make sure it was just me. Then I took my shoes and socks off, slipped my shorts off, and removed my shirt. So now it was me standing on the bank in my swim bikini.I worked my way into the water and what a refreshing feeling that was. One it just felt good to cool off on a hot day. Two the feeling of being in the water in only a bikini instead of swim trunks was one great revelation. I’m not quite sure how to explain the feeling other then I just felt more free. Water just flowing by with no clingy fabric of swim trunks and just seem to move more freely in the water and actually out of the water too. Guess in a way it is more like you are one with the water in a swim brief.
The Amazon swim bikini mostly ended up being worn under swim trunks for support while water skiing and tubing. It made a few more appearance in secluded areas, but not in the public eye. Definitely was not a good suit for hitting the public beach for me! This was the start of me trying to minimize my swimwear and starting a swim bikini collection.
