 I haven't been to Osterman for several years, but had been there several times before. I never saw nudity on any area of the beach, but thonging g-stringing was readily tolerated. I just hope that the nudity doesn't cause a backlash once, or if, discovered.

G string could look naked from 200' away. Would that cause a cop to walk over ?I have not been there since 2013. One G string guy was a fixture. Either he or another hides behind a windscreen. 
(I don't think Lifeguards give a $hit). Hispanic woman with kids like the gay section. I guess they feel they won't be hit upon, even if their little kids see men's asses.

Tobias -

Boy you were brave, going out in all that wind on Tuesday! I was there yesterday, arriving about 11:45. I was one of the "Two more guys". I've gone nude there for a short time before, but this was the first time I just stripped down and laid out for an extended time. While we obviously got noticed, it was striking how almost no one made a deal of it. There was a bit of apprehension when the lifeguard walked down to the South end of the beach, but ignored us, and briefly talked to a guy who had brought his dog. Dogs are not allowed, but this dog was very well-behaved, not running around, so the lifeguard apparently let it go.

As I was preparing to leave, I chatted with two of the other guys, asking if they thought thing would be as easy going throughout the Summer. They said probably, as long as one uses discretion, especially when there's kids around. I encountered that in the past, when a Summer day-camp brings a big group of nine-year-olds to the beach.

Only downside of the day was when I got home. I had worn a white Cavemen teardrop (similar to Tangalad's discontinued "Silver Ring Bag") under a pair of fairly new jeans for the walk to the beach, and some of the indigo dye had rubbed off onto the pouch. I was able to get it out with bleach, but if it had been some other light color, like yellow,I'd have been out of luck. Live and learn.

 At Osterman for 2 hours this afternoon. Perfect beach day. Warm. Slight breeze. Slightly cloudy.
Wore a small speedo -- first time out this year and needed to fell the sun.
Once I get a little base I'll be in my thong.
It's a shame thongs have not really caught on
I really do know why they haven't

 nautirogue:  No worries about Osterman Beach. The beach is very long and very wide.
It seems the gays you are referring to are on the far south end of the beach near the pilings and pier
Id you go straight towards the beach from the concession stand, you should be fine
It seems the more family side is North of the concession stand
Osterman offers something for everybody

And just to clarify, the wife and I have no issues with being on the gay beach.  She just wants to be respectful.  Honestly, it sounds to me like the gay area is the most fun.  If they'll accept a bi MF couple who hates clothes, we're there!

nautirougue,  your wife will be accepted just fine.  I've been on the weekend and during the week and seen several topfree ladies there, from the center of the beach to the south.  Personally, I'd rather see folks keep a g-string on at least to avoid attracting complaints that might cause patrols to increase.  Unless the police are out to make a point or someone has complained, you'll be left alone.  I hope that folks stay with at least a thong on to avoid having complaints since technically thongs/top free are not legal.

 I have never seen the police at Osterman. The only "Authorities" are the life guards, who are mostly concerned with people swimming too far from shore.Since the beach does not seem to attract troublemakers, the life guards are quite easy going.

There are really two sorts of gays the frequent the beach. There are those who are just like any other beach goer, and just hang out catching a few rays. Then, there are those who go there for the social scene.They spend most of their time standing, talking to their friends.If you look at the beach from the perimeter, like from the big tree by the paddle board concession (the main entry point for the south end), you see them clustered in a very tight knot. It kind of reminds me of a flock of sheep. Most of us who go there "Just to go to the beach" will set up a short distance away. There's no problem with attitude or anything, it's just that it's so crowded. Sundays are the most noticeable for this.

Outside of this, there are also quite a few groups of young, mixed gender folks who go there to party. This pretty much means drinking a lot. I see two liter bottles of Tequila being passed around. Of course, this is very illegal, but they're pretty well-behaved. I'll admit, when I was their age  I thought it sounded like lots of fun, but quickly learned that alcohol and Sun don't mix well. I remember one day seeing a group leaving who had to carry one of their friends out, because he was too hammered to walk. Ah, kids! Whacha gonna do? :-)

 I have seen bicycle patrol police at Osterman, but they only seem to visit the lifeguard station. Only once have I seen them out on the sand of the beach, and that was to have a group of people dump their alcoholic beverages (which are not allowed on the beach). I don't know if they cited the guy(s) or not. I was wearing a thong and within easy view, but they never gave me a second look. Once I saw a bicycle cop at the concession stand scanning the beach with binoculars; I don't know what he was looking for--I didn't ask. My guess is for people with booze, but if they saw someone nude, I wouldn't be surprised if they did something, or maybe not.
 
Overall, it's a very live-and-let-live atmosphere. I have set up during the week a little north of the concession stand wearing a thong or g-string and families have set up around me with no hassles. Thongs and g-strings on either sex is no problem. I have seen topfree women even up in the north end in the "family" area, but most often from the concession stand and south.
 
Brocker36 said: "Personally, I'd rather see folks keep a g-string on at least to avoid attracting complaints that might cause patrols to increase." I agree wholeheartedly. Knowing Chicago politics, all that would be necessary would be for someone to complain to someone who has a high-profile or in power, or someone trying to make a name for themselves and get their mug on TV and they could make it their mission to "clean things up" and things could change real quick. JM_Runs has posted quite eloquently about pushing the envelope to include nudity and how that can backfire. I ask that the folks who are pushing the limit to nudity refrain from doing so; you could ruin a very good thing. Who knows--if Osterman's thong/g-string/topfree tolerance sets a standard, it may start dispersing to other beaches along the lakefront.

 I respect the thoughts regarding nudity.  They make sense.  There are other places we can go to get naked.  If we can go to Osterman and be completely accepted in minimal swimwear and topless, then that's cool.  We do the same at Kemil, but it's usually just us.  As TennStud mentioned above, it would be awesome if the open attitude could extend to other regional beaches.  We'd love for Kemil to become as open as what Osterman seems to be!

Went out for a bit today to try to get a little tan going and saw a few females in thongs or so cheeky it may as well be a thong.  I didn't spot any other guys in thongs, but it was pretty busy so there were probably others there.  Going past Foster beach I saw two ladies standing up wearing thongs, something I haven't noticed much of on that beach.  The water is still very cold but felt good with the heat today.

 I got there late today. I wore my Frisky Business "Low-Joe Bulge Thong". The back of this suit and my butt work so well together! I am having Joanie make me another with some slight alterations to fit me more precisely. I'll post about the results when complete.

Actually, I slipped out of the suit for a bit [kept the "essentials" covered, as I burn easy there]. I usually find that it is easier to slip a thong back on than it is a G-string, but not today. First, the wind had blown the sand everywhere, and I mean EVEREYWHERE! Plus, I first put it on "Sideways". I'm sure we've all done that occasionally, but this was the first time I did that in full view of the public. I just had to laugh as I started over, saying to myself, "Okay now, the seam goes THAT way :-D

 I think that in order for thongs and speedos to go more mainstream and more publicly accepted there has to be more candid photos of people wearing them on the web. It seems that all the photos are staged and posed, The immediate response by those seeing a staged or posed photos is that "they're gay" and confirming the illusion that only "gays" wear speedos and thongs. If more candid photos of men wearing thongs and speedos were to appear on the web, I think that will be more accepted and the use will grow

 I was at the beach on Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon, both days wearing a Dubio Wolverine in green big-hole mesh with yellow trim. Thia is a very nice fabric. It has nice stretch and envelops me nicely, and stays that way even when reclining, without being real blatant about it like my Dore torpedo. Plus, it gives a real cool "Tron"-style 3D effect -)

I got there early Wednesday, and the beach was quite sparse, as there was a threat of storms later [and boy, did it ever that afternoon!], and there was another guy there wearing one of those suits that looks like a high-cut and low-cut worn together. He told me he got it on Amazon, but hadn't really had it long enough to know if the sides would stay separate. I must say, this type of suit looks a LOT better on a real person than they do in the ads on the Internet.

As I was arriving Thursday, I encountered my fried who is goes topless, coming back from a run along the lakefront trail, and she said she would see me at the beach later. She commented on how good my tan was already, which I'm pleasantly surprised at, seeing as hoe it's only Mid-June. As I got to the sand, I noticed a woman wearing a Thong (which is still too much of a rarity), and when I got closer, saw that she was topless. After a while, my friend showed up (sadly, she doesn't wear a thong), and later, three women I've seen there often set up near the shore, and two of them went top-free as well. And nobody paid the five of us any mind at all

I have high hope for this Summer. Of course, Friday was the last day of school in Chicago, and I hope the arrival of kids won't put too much of a damper on things.

 That's why I don't go to that beach. Too much trouble. Osterman , for whatever reason, does not attract troublemakers, for which I am immensely grateful. Families, gays, party people, Sun worshipers (like me)  and any combination of the above co-exist uneventfully. A place where we can all "Just get along".

Just make sure you take the 147 Lake Shore bus there from the Loop, not the 151 Sheriden local, nor the "L", since it runs non-stop to the 5200 Block, and bypasses high crime areas of Wrigleville and Uptown gang territory. I have heard Thorndale "L" station north of Ostermann is a gang hangout as well.

I've taken the redline through this area numerous times, never seen or heard of any significant problems.  I drive through this area occasionally and don't at all feel unsafe.

I've been back out to Osterman a few times since my last post all wearing thongs, generally seeing several females in very small backed suits, and maybe another 1-3 guys in thongs each time, both around lunch and early mornings.  I prefer the early mornings, as it's more peaceful.  

Today there was one guy who was acting very mildly creepy, but he kept far enough away I just ignored him and enjoyed my time in the sun.

I also spent a little weekend time at Montrose wearing a thong which was slightly visible under a tan-through bikini.  No comments there, and I was up and around at least a few times.  A few smiles from some of the females nearby was about all.  I stripped down to just my thong when changing from my shorts to the bikini, but basically stayed sitting down.  Even still, nobody seemed to pay any attention.

Overall, perhaps it's just me, but this year there seems to be more folks in smaller suits pretty much all around.  Female bottoms are shrinking, and guys in long shorts are getting slightly less long shorts.

 A hot day on the city's beaches!  I made it out for the first time in a while.  I counted 3 ladies in thongs (real ones, not just the cheeky shorts, of which there were many more).  There was also the topless regular and I also saw a tiny g-string on Foster Beach (just a string, not even a triangle of fabric at the back) on the way home.  For the guys there were at least 2-3 fully naked, and probably close to 10 in thongs or g-strings.  I felt great, more confident than usual, and had some pretty brave walk arounds into the lake (water is now nice and warm) and through crowds of people.  No one batted an eyelid, just some laidback smiles.

 I was there the past three days, taking advantage of the (mostly) nice weather. Friday morning was quite cloudy, so I started doing chores around the house. I kept checking out the window, and by two o'clock, decided it was clear enough to head for the beach (the forecast was for clear skies later in the day). As I arrived, I was a little apprehensive to see a bunch of kids, but they were leaving. I wore my Frisky Business Low-joe bulge thong, which I discovered looks better when worn with a c-ring, but I didn't have it on for long. I set up near my topless friend, and a young guy who was nude. I quickly stripped off my suit, and spent the next couple of hours completely naked (except for the c-ring), keeping an eye out for kids, but fortunately no more arrived. No one paid me any mind.

The clouds were still hanging around a bit, and after a while, my topless friend startled to head out, just as the clouds startled to dissipate. She stopped, checked the sky for a while, turned around, and set back up. As we were leaving at the end of the day, I remarked to her how she had almost missed all the Sun. She said the forecast was for clearing, but she thought later. She was glad she stayed, because she wanted to get as much sun as possible, since she was going to Hawaii for the weekend (she's a flight attendant), and that she couldn't go topless on Maui, because "It's all full of old people, not like Honolulu". She tries to schedule her work for weekends, because she doesn't like the party crowds at Osterman.

Saturday was nice, but the waves were something else. Nothing like you'd see at the ocean, but a lot for a lake on a sunny day. Plenty of lifeguards on duty, and lots of swimmers, too. I wore my Skinzwear Quick Release thong, so I could get  lots of exposure, but cover up quickly if needed. Fortunately, that wasn't necessary. I had set up pretty far from the water, since the shore line was pretty beat up from the waves. One of the other regulars who had set up near the water told me that they had been washed out earlier in the day.

I don't normally like to go on "Sunday Fun Day", as it is so crowded and noisy, but the weather was fine (forecast was for increasing clouds), so I got there early. I wore my Ebabee micro slider spaghetti-string pouch. Other than the other string-pouchers within their wind screens, there was not much skimpy swimwear worn by either sex. Amongst all the gay guys, ever the slaves to style, almost all were wearing tight nylon "Sport-style" swim trunks, with contrasting trim around the waist and leg holes, with vertical accent stripes on the sides. A lot better than board shorts, but, c'mon people! Show some individuality!

I got a couple of comments as I was walking up the beach. I usually stay along the water as I walk up towards the "Family" end (although there weren't many kids around yesterday). I was pretty far up that way, when I stepped on something hard in the sand. It was a plastic plug, likely from a beach chair. As i was walking up to the trash can to dispose of it, I heard a female voice ahead of me say, "Oh my God! Can you believe . . .". As I walked back towards the water, I heard a different female voice behind me say, " Oh, YEAH!". Nice to know those Glute exercises are paying off.

 I'm asking this for a friend of mine who will be in Chicago this weekend.  He will be staying in the downtown area at the Palmer House.  He wants to take a bus and go to Osterman Beach so he can wear his thongs.   From what I've read on previous posts, he should take the 147 Express or Lake Shore Bus to the beach.   My question is, where does he get off the bus?  How will he know when he has reached the area nearest the thonger's section of the beach?   Can anyone explain more about the bus service and when to get off the bus?

 @luvnmythong, your friend needs to get off the bus (147) at the stop at the corner of N. Sheridan Rd. and W. Bryn Mawr Ave. (by the the pink apartment building), then continue on foot along Bryn Mawr towards the lake. After underpass he will reach the park area by the beach and he should take one of the paths leading to the south part of the beach by the pier. The area from the pier to the beach house is the thonger's section.
"El" Red Line (Howard direction) is a good alternative to get there too. You get off at Bryn Mawr station and then continue the same way east towards the lake.

 The parking situation south of Foster is still the same, at least as of a month ago.The area near the Foster beach house is paid; along the drive south is free. About a one mile walk to Osterman.

I was there yesterday, and was pleased to see that the sand was finally dried out from where the waves had soaked it last month.

 Bulgewear -

Certainly! A lot of the "General Public" seems to think the beaches after Labor Day, but all the regulars know better. I've managed to go there even in October, but, of course, it all depends on Mother Nature. Weekends will probably still see some good crowds for another couple of weeks, though.

One thing  is since the days are getting shorter, and the Sun is getting lower on the sky, means less sunshine, even on a warm, clear day, so you have to be prepared to take advantage of those days when they happen

 We are having a run of very nice weather, and people are staying away in droves - their loss! Today the weather was absolutely glorious; sunny (with a few thin cirrus clouds later), temps in the low 70s F (mid 20s C), and only a slight breeze. No more than twenty people were there. I know it's midweek, but still. Hmmph.

I decided to wear my purple mesh baggie from Ebabee; I brought along my Skiunzwear Suffit for backup, but didn't need it. I got there pretty early, since they were predicting increasing clouds, but that barely happened. I stayed for about five hours - so nice to get my tan reinforced heading into Autumn.

The forecast is for even better weather into the weekend - looking forward to it!

 We were on Lake Michigan this weekend for my birthday weekend, but situations didn't work out.  She wanted to run the dogs and she had hurt her ankle the night before.  We were limited to her mobility, so no walking to less-public areas.

Our season is done.  No more fun minimal-swimsuit play this year.

 Sorry I missed everyone this season. Would enjoy connecting with all you local thongers next summer. Stay in touch!

 10:15am here at Hollywood.  Finally got here this season.  A lot of dog walkers and passersby.

 Planning to be out at beach Saturday.  Hope to see other thongs, male and female, or at least not an empty beach.

 Just got back from a Saturday at the beach, and definitely NOT empty! Sunny, temps near 90F, wind out of the South (Not the North!) made for  a delightful day. I was wearing my green Dubio big hole mesh Wolverine string. So nice to be closing out the Summer with a week of, well, Summery weather. And it may not be done yet . Forecast for next week has several sunny and warm days - keeping my fingers crossed!
