Q. Feel embarrassed about being naked?
No matter what your size or shape, life is too short to be ashamed of your body. Once you're in the water there's very little to see anyway. You'll only be seen by other members of the same sex. "When in Rome, do like the Romans do." There's nothing to be worried about!
