Not all women have a small enough frame to wear a size 2. And if you look good, who else is going to know and/or care what size you wear. My size 10 behind will be wearing a bikini this summer. I've worked hard for it. However, I wouldn't feel comfortable in a string bikini. I think the fit has to be flattering.

You look great! I tend err on the side of skinny-fat and I agree tone is the key at all sizes. You triumph over skinny-fat all day!
