Well, I am a M2F now going thru HRT and actually look forward to wearing a woman's swimsuit as I progress. My biggest concern, other than being an old fat person that will never really pass, is that I am also suffering from male pattern baldness... do I wear a wig to the beach on a hot summer day? Yikes!

For you F2M folks' out there, I'd offer that there are so many men these days with moobs, I wouldn't be too worried about it. Wear a loose T-shirt to protect you from the sun, regular swim trunks and have fun at the beach. Life is too short to sweat the small stuff...

I must say that in my 72 years I find it rare that anyone out there really cares...

Ok, thank you for posting. That's very helpful, I might try that.

At the pool with friends, I wear a binder under a swim shirt. Partly to stop the shirt clinging to my chest and partly because the binder keeps me warm in the water, which means I can stop and chat without shivering. It causes no discomfort at all, but the binder I use is old so it's well stretched out.
<p style="text-align: left;">If there's no one around and it's a hot day I sometimes swim topless in the reservoir to avoid getting my shirt wet. Those swims tend to be more spur of the moment, i.e. I went for a run and got too hot, rather than a planned social thing.</p>

That's a good idea, pools can get kinda cold. Thanks for the advice! I'll keep that in mind.

hello. I'm M2F and I planned my swimming in detail n just started at the local college gym. I wear a 1 piece mastectomy suit with silicone forms I've put into it, have 2 to rotate, n change in women's locker rooms. I loved it, but I wear a tight gaff under to keep my front smooth. thinking about having testicle removed, soon. plan to rent locker n keep my stuff in it, n have a second suit n gaff ready at all times.

I guess if I was F2M I woukd contemplate male shorts, a binder n a shirt, depending on my breast size. at some point I'd be anxious to go topless. n I think I'd look into a prosthetic to keep with my swim gear to keep my swim trunk.   full. locker rooms problem as mens locker rooms usually do not have private stalls or showers like womens do.   good luck dear

hugs

Thank you, I appreciate that you took the time to make suggestions and help. Hmm... if men's lockers don't have private stalls maybe I'll use the gender neutral locker room if the pool has one.

I saw a wig consultant n she suggested, I have a full head if hair, that I grow mine out..but in meantime get good wigs from her n get a 100 wig off amazon to swim in..toss it at end of summer n get new one, but don't mess up your pricy wigs..same with forms..dedicate a pool pair or 2 n expect the chlorine to harm them...then order new ones

all that said, I haven't made it to wig, yet. my dysphoria, drove me crazy enough I was changing several times per day..top to bottom..n going nuts..a dear friend Said look in mirror, if you truly are or wish to be missy above all else, then get dressed and scre..it. nobody really cares as most people have kids with soccer practice, groceries to buy, homes to clean, jobs to keep etc..so the M2F transgirl having funky hair for 7 more months, so what.

I tan in bikinis at home, cut the grass in sports bras, n wear a pocketed one piece to swim at local college. and yes, use the ladies lockers dear..just be, ..discreet. good luck. enjoy.

good luck dear.

hugs

Before I stopped swimming, I wore a women's swimsuit in 2022 when I went camping with family (I ended up donating the swimsuit (which I cut off the breast paddings with scissors because no way am I going to wear something with additional padding that is dysphoria inducing) anyway since I didn't swim as much anymore).

Ok, that's useful. Honestly, I try to avoid swimsuits with padding anyway as I agree it's really dysphoria inducing.

I’m an A cup two and a half years into HRT… after looking at all the fat men with boobs I just use my drab shorts. Only when I go for GRS will I wear a female swim suit

Cheers Polly
