I've never worn a bikini or even a two-piece. That's just me out there in my bra and underwear. If a strange man walked up to me and said, "I'd really like to see you in your bra and underwear", he'd be a perv, right? To me the beach was full of pervs. No free shows from this chick. The bathing suit I have now is a one piece with an attached skirt. Very demure and modest. I know my Mom was smiling down when I bought it. I don't rock it, but it's not really a "rock-able" type of suit.
