    Hey there,

    Is it possible to buy swimwear for a friend as a gift (e.g. birthday gift)?

    Well, by no means is it impossible, but you'll of course have to know their size.

    Go undercover to find her "sizes" so that she doesn't think it's creepy

    No you can not as buying swimwear for friends is illegal and punishable by up to 5 years in prison. /s

    Seriously though, I would have to see what it is like first

    If you're a guy, and you try to buy a swimsuit for a female friend - you're gonna have a bad time.

    Well I'm sure if the girl is a close friend that you have known for a long time it wouldn't be that big of a deal. Just not somebody who you just meet

    It's possible but kind of awkward.... There are other gifts.





    Like money:tpi: Sorry I don't know how to do the tiny text.

    What level of friend are you to them? Of an acquaintance gifted me a swimsuit I'd be more than creeped out.

    If you're close enough to personally know their clothes size, you should be fine. Just don't gift anything too skimpy, either gender applies.

    Generally, if you have to ask, the answer is no.

    If you're secretly interested in her, just ask her out. If you're not, why do you want to buy her a bathing suit? Nothing says "I want to see you half naked" like buying someone underwear or a bathing suit.

    Obviously to me it sounds like he wants to see her half naked. But when you want to see someone half naked you have to be bold about it. Some women like confidence. Others like cheeky charm. Few like creepy suggestive gifts ;).
