How to convince my parents to let me wear a bikini?

I am almost 13 and my parents will not let me wear a bikini. They are from india so they are conservative but they let me wear halter tops. They let me wear tankinis but I feel out of place in them. I want to wear a bikini because I want to not be so self conscious and I want to be comfortable in my own skin. I dont want a string bikini. I would prefer some that give more coverage. I wore bikinis when I was like 7 and younger.
I like the amount of coverage in this bikini top-

What happened? Did they ever let u? Im struggling with the same problem. And we have a school field trip to a water park coming up soon also im Indian and also 13. Plz help.
well one thing is for sure about trying to get parents to let you do something-you can't whine and nag them about it. they'll just get tired of it. you have to try to earn responsibility from them and maybe you could help them around the house to get on their good side. best of luck:)

i agree
I'm in the same situation as you. Try pointing out calmly to them that your friends wear a bikini. (especialy of the same religion) Make sure that you don't appear to want it because you want to attract attention from guys. (ex. don't ask for skimpy bikinis, don't always be wearing low cut shirts and short shorts, pretend that you don't like guys) It also helps if you pick out a bikini with colors and print that your parents like, that way, there's a higher chance of them liking it. I hope this works! good luck

I'm in the same situation but I'm only 10 but that doesn't change the fact that I want to wear one all of my friends do and I feel weird and awkward because I'm always the only one not wearing one so if your nervous about asking send your mom a text that's sounds mature and tell her its not to show off or get guys to look at you it's simply because you prefer the style they're easier to move around in and you don't get as sweaty and if it helps tell her you'll always wear board shorts with them and sound mature about it and try and show that your old enough to make your own decisions I hope this helped!!,good luck

NO sweat just calmly tell them how you feel and try to earn money yourself to get one with your parents consent obviously. This is the first year I'm getting one. Ignore what Yokyky said. I used to wear bikinis but I stopped and now I am going to so Just <3 yourself and your body and rock that swimsuit. pull your shoulders back and think to yourself I am beautiful too. It'll help boost your self confidence!

WTF guys ? That's just too much for Indians (I know coz I'm partially Indian).

Hey doll, so you wanna wear a bikini and you're 13 ?
C'mon have patience ! You can wear one when you're like about 16. 13's way too young. Trust me baby, you don't wanna flash those melons and legs for the bitches and dogs out there. They can do random shit, which you'll never ever ever want. Be a little understanding and thoughtful to your parents but I'm not saying that you become a saint or somethin'. Just let go. You're beautiful and you know it and you'll always be, even when you don't show really it. And don't worry about people'll think when you don't wear a bikini - most of those morons don't use their brain often.

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I met a spell caster called Dr OKOSO and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: OKOSOTEMPLE @ gmail . com
call/whatsapp: +2348034103165 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM if you seek FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS
