Default Can I pull off a bikini?

I went back and forth with myself about doing this but I really need some opinions (don't want to embarrass myself). Do you all think I can wear a bikini to the beach/pool and not look too horrible in it and get looks of disgust?

I have some photos below from the other day. I'm wearing a cheap bikini I picked up last summer from Wal-mart. It's too big now so the bottoms are quite saggy in the back LOL. Please excuse the crap in the background. I was in the process of cleaning up and something prompted me to try on the bikini.

If you want to wear a bikini - you definitely should. You have a gorgeous figure and can definitely pull it off.

Restart 5/18/15 began at 263.9. All time high was 275 in 7/03. Low in Summer 2012 of 169.
A for the first 50 pounds lost, plus a for every additional 5 pounds lost on the weight loss reboot:

WOW - yes! You look astoundingly good.

You are making me realize (yet again) that I need to exercise more. I am an inch taller and weigh 15 lbs less and you look a million times better than I do (slight exaggeration but you get the point!)

Really, really nice figure.
Mini-goal #5, last one? (ala Beck Diet Solution): Lose 5 pounds AGAIN. Start date: August 19,2015 (last time took 30 days)
HALLOWEEN CHALLENGE: Just stick to IP (Started 4/29) until Oct 31, or 25 pounds lost, whichever comes first. Start exercising!!!
>>>As of Oct 1, 14.6% weight loss; revised goal ends up ~16%<<<

Thanks everyone! One minute I tell myself I look ok in the bikini, then the next i feel like I'm lying to myself LOL. It's kind of weird because last year I was 20 pounds heavier and wore this same bikini proudly.
