Will be in Rio on april 25th and I've read in all so many guide books that the women of course wear thong bikinis. I'm afraid I just don't look good in them, although I am not at all overweight and pretty fit, just look awful inthe thong. Will I be the only one wearing my two piece? Have you seen other foreign women just give in and go for it? Will I just be in a minority not wearing a thong?
Brazil is an all-year-round destination because of its tropical climate. The Brazilian winter lasts for only three months and is from June to August. During the winter the temperature varies with monthly averages in winter between 13 and 18 degrees Celsius 55 and 64 degrees Fahrenheit. During the summer however, temperatures can reach 30 to 40 degrees Celsius 86 to degrees Fahrenheit with frequent showers and strong humidity. So depending on what time of the year you are visiting you need to take slightly different items of clothing with you when considering what to wear in Brazil. The good news with high temperatures is that you can pack really lightly. I went on a two week holiday in Brazil during the summer and only traveled with a carry on.
