"T0p 0ptional"

Thought it would be a fun "fashion/culture"topic.Looking forward to the "drama" of my American wife experiencing the beaches of the south of France.Any amusing stories/cultural advice etc regarding the subject of topless sunning. Easy on the French vs American mores

When I was 15, I did a high school trip to France. We sunbathed on the beaches of Nice. I recall the beaches being rocky and very topless. We were american teens all with one piece bathing suits!!I was too modest to go topless than, and I am too modest now!!!It was shocking for us and amusing for the boys on our trip....

There wasn't a lot of drama on the beaches of Cannes last year. Sunbathing folks with tops and/or no tops. Most of the time the ladies put their tops back on when they went into the water. The Speedo type suits on the men were far more dramatic! I wore a two piece just in case...and yes, it was much cooler sunbathing without the top!

Why have you posted the same question three times in the last day?

starrsville, re: the three postings on the same subject:

I have a feeling that it isn't the "wife" who is looking forward to this "topless sunbathing" experience *wink wink*

Good point, Scarlett.

Fred, there's a clothing optional 5K race at an "adult resort" in the US South if you are interested in a warm-up. I can send you the link if you like.

lol, I just spewed seltzer all over my computer on your comment Scarlett. That would be my husband, for sure. Always pointing out the topless sunbathers like he just hit the lotto

Scarlett, I think her name was "islandmom" and they may be on the French Riveria right about now. I've wondered how the trip is going...LOTS of luggage, two little ones and a wife who definitely doesn't want her hubby to see the sights on the beach!

Sorry ... but I HAVE to share what Rick Steves just said on TV...

The segment was on Hungary. He's in a hot water pool with the "Speedo set" (his words) playing chess on a floating board in the water.

The end of the show has his outtakes... and he asks the camers...

"okay, nipples are good?" as he looks down to check.

No kidding. As I'm reading this thread! Made me chuckle!

I saw the sights on the beach!!!It is not much to look at. There are very few beautiful fit babes who are topless. More like older flabbier women with boobs resting on bellies...LOL> That, unfortuately would be me today!!LOL!

Please, please do not ever mention the aboved named and the word 'nipples' in the same sentence ever again.

I could have spent the rest of my life without that mental picture and would have been perfectly happy.

The horrors.

Hey Fred, I'd suggest working on the paunch and stop worrying about boobies in France.
