To sunbathe in my own garden in my underwear?

No-one can see me if I stay in the corner of the patio.
Unless they actually got on their roof, or peered out of their bathroom window.
It's just the same as a bikini really, isn't it?

I for one am shocked and saddened at this outrageous behaviour.

We're all going to hell in a handcart, mark my words.

YANBU (As long as your bloomers/longjohns are of respectable dimensions)


nepenthe3 · 18/04/2011 11:44

But, aren't you a bit cold? I've got my cardi on.

It's April ! Get a grip Wink


FourFingeredKitkat · 18/04/2011 11:47

Trollop! Grin


DooinMeCleanin · 18/04/2011 11:47

You'll be a bit chilly, but no YANBU.

It depends on the style I guess.

Big pants and sensible bra - fine. Peephole bra and crotchless knickers - Hmm


BooJonesMummy · 18/04/2011 11:51

I've never done it! But it wouldn't offend me if someone else was.


exhausted2011 · 18/04/2011 11:52

Trollop, that was the word I was looking for.
Tis lovely little sun trap in the corner of my patio! Shivery when the sun goes in though. Not got my kit off just yet.

Another vote for trollop. Unless of course we are talking grey M & S knickers and equally saggy bra....



MmeSurvivedLent · 18/04/2011 12:35

I would not do it, but no reason for you not to you trollop

Except for the fact that it is April and you live in UK. Isn't it cold?


headfairy · 18/04/2011 12:35

I've done that ridiculous thing where you roll back your clothes until you might as well be in underwear, t shirt sleeves rolled up to bra straps and the bottom bit rolled up to just under bra... shorts rolled up to knickers, waist rolled down a bit.... ah fuck it, just take the lot off and sunbathe in your kecks! Think of the vitamin D


springbokdoc · 18/04/2011 12:55

Its freezing woman! You'll get a death of a cold!

When I was at uni, a friend and I were having lunch at a gorgeous riverside gastro pub one day when a woman strolled through the pub garden wearing one of those Sloggi underwear sets in black. A few nights later we happened to see her again in Pizza Express in the same outfit, but due to the fact it was late at night she was wearing a pale pink cardi over the top. I have often wondered about her (though my recent MN education has made me wonder whether she was in fact advertising her desire to dog?)

So YAprobablyNBU, unless your garden is in fact a pub garden.


ViolaTricolor · 18/04/2011 14:31

Dita, that is hilarious! Love the cardie for covering up.

I was out in my underwear in the garden today, black bra and black shorts. Have caught the sun on the top of my thighs and chest! Was 26 degrees here today, lovely!

Then the farmer from up the road popped by to borrow the roller, came round the side of the house and caught me! Blush Ah well, was on my stomach so he didn't see much!!


dolldaggabuzzbuzz · 19/04/2011 22:21

YABU. Sunbathe naked. White bits are unsightly.


Rowan49 · 19/04/2011 22:23

Just please don't do what my dad does/did - he sold the house we'd grown up in in the middle of nowhere and thought he could continue to sunbathe in red y-fronts and white sports socks. Shame. Well he COULD but my brother and I were beyond mortfied ... Grin

Out of curiostity, does anyone here not think that a person looking into another person's backyard is a peeping tom? Aren't there stalking laws against it?

Theoretically - you can do pretty much anything in your backyard? e.g. naked sunbathing, build a bird bath, have a bbq, etc? all 3 at once?


RustyBear · 20/04/2011 20:02

Naked barbecuing not really advisable....


overmydeadbody · 20/04/2011 20:06

If you're in your own garden there is no excuse not to pop inside and put on your bikini. It's far more fun to sunbathe in a bikini than in your underwear.


worraliberty · 20/04/2011 20:06

I can't believe how many people are saying it's cold.

It's gorgeous Dahn Sarf...bikini weather every day for the last week Grin


overmydeadbody · 20/04/2011 20:06

But if no one can see you you might as well go topless.
