Swimsuits should be outfits in motion.  The word 'swim' indicates you're moving through water... wink

the op was asking for everyone's best photos. 2 or 3 at most, right?

posting 20 images within the same post seems a bit excessive.

What's excessive is you quoting all those photos. OP doesn't state how many photos people can post. So if someone wants to post 3497843824 photos then that's their prerogative.

Who died and made you boss when it comes to how many photos someone should/can post. roll
