    The thing is, a banner can be seen by every member (as far as I know, Idk if there is a feature to prevent this). Some potential viewers of your banner are either underage to view adult/mature art, and some users just prefer not to see those images. Because of that, I think it would be best to keep your banner image as something that can be friendly to viewers of all ages and of all tastes. I believe that can be said for avatars, too.

    Though I can't find anywhere the exact guidelines for banners and avatars. Is there a link to where it is written? Or perhaps there's a way a page can be created about this topic? I remember avatar content was an issue on fA.

    I think it could be since you see them if you go to a beach xD but some people might not appreciate it.

    The bikini itself could be okay, but if her nipples are poking out, that's probably going to count as Mature (13+).

    In my personal opinion, it depends. I agree with Thistle about the nipples, if they pop out I think it would be best to mark the image as mature. I'd also be concerned about the pose. Is she touching herself in a provocative manner, or is she just waving "hello" and being friendly? Does the image focus heavily on her breasts or genitals? Enlargement of those/the significance they have in the image could make people uncomfortable. If it's a tasteful pose/image, it should be fine. But then the question becomes, what exactly is defined as "tasteful"? Not everyone shares the same views on a topic like that. Which is why I personally believe it's more of a case-by-case basis and not something that can be easily defined.

    In your case with your banner, it might be best to contact a staff member to be sure it follows the guidelines. Personally, I'd refrain from putting up that banner until you get an answer from staff.

    I'm not staff so these are my thoughts, but I'm not sure how acceptable this is for a banner because of her nipples clearly defined through the swimsuit. I'd still recommend contacting staff- they definitely know if it's allowed.

    This thread is a discussion about the ratings, which contains a discussion about nipples. Although reading it, I'm not finding the guidelines for non-exposed female nipple yet they can be seen through a bra or swimsuit. If anyone does find it, a quote would be lovely. c:

    Here's a link to site/forum staff. I believe it might be quicker to send them a note on the main site, but a forum message may be better.
