It is hard to wear a bikini when you are pale. Your arms and torso see some sun during the year, so they are not as pale as the rest of your body. But your abdomen is always covered. So the difference can be jarring.
I have a silver lining for the pale people around. If you ever lose power in your house, just put on a swimsuit. Your white skin will reflect the light. No need for flashlights, right?
