I was on spring break with my friends playing in the waves, which were a little harsh that day. A huge wave hits me and washes me all the way up to the beach and when I got up I realized my top was floating in the water. And you can imagine a beach turning spring break PACKED with people. So embarrassing.

In senior year of high school I went with my boyfriend’s family to the beach for a long weekend, in FL. The weather was hot & sunny but the waves were rough. I was only in the water to my waist. My boyfriend’s father was next to me, and as my back was turned a rough wave crashed down on me over the shoulders and ripped my top right off! It was washed 20 ft toward shore, so it was not like I could just grab it. He looked right at my chest for what seemed to be too long, very embarrassing. I was 17 so it creeped me out. My boyfriend saw, got my top and swam over to give it to me, and I put it back on. His mom did not see-thankfully!
