From http://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=6842 [nofollow]

Goose bumps are a temporary local change in the skin...The chain of events leading to this skin change starts with a stimulus such as cold or FEAR...Contraction of these muscles elevates the hair follicles above the rest of the skin. And it is these tiny elevations we perceive as goose bumps.


And we find this in http://www.med.umich.edu/1libr/aha/aha_musspasm_sma.htm [nofollow]

Muscle spasms, especially in the neck, also may occur when you are under LOTS OF STRESS.

Stress and fear both relate to adrenals and the fight or flight response.

Now, being in a swimsuit doesnt seem to relate to 'cold' weather...and also, being in a swimsuit can be a bit 'embarassing' subconsciously, even if you are outgoing and confident with high self esteem.  Just think about how even pretty, thin, sexy women can go anorexic and bolimic from subconscience 'fear.'

Thus, i think you are having muscle spasms...i.e., goosebumps from a subconscience fear of people seeing your butt, reguardless of how 'attractive' it may or may not be.

What helps muscle spasms?

" Keratosis pilaris is a harmless skin condition that has its highest prevalence in adolescents -
 particularly adolescent girls. It commonly first develops between the ages of 2 and 20 and is rare after the age of forty.

Keratosis pilaris is not connected to any serious disease or ill health. Some sufferers may be susceptible to dry skin and eczema, but this is not always the case. For most suffers the condition subsides in adulthood.

The cause of keratosis pilaris is unknown however it does have a tendency to be hereditary (especially those of Celtic descent), also in people who are over weight.

Signs and Symptoms

Patches of skin feel rough and look like permanent goosebumps. It is thought to be a disorder of the keratin cells (the sticky cells that line the hair follicle) which form a horny plug instead of exfoliating. The most commonly affected areas are the backs of upper arms, buttocks and thighs. In some cases the plugs may be more widespread, affecting the forearms, face or legs. The plugs may appear grey or reddish in colour. The condition often worsens in cold weather and dry climates.

Treatment

There is no cure for keratosis pilaris but it can be effectively controlled. Topical creams, which help to smooth and soften the skin, may be prescribed by a dermatologist (skin specialist). A prescription cream available in New Zealand, Retin-A (tretinoin), has proved effective in treating keratosis pilaris, however it is unsuitable for young children and pregnant women. Alpha hydroxyacid gels have also proved successful in the treatment of the condition.

Soap, very hot water and vigorous scrubbing should be avoided as these may aggravate the condition, however rubbing with pumice stone or a loofah may assist with exfoliation. Some materials, such as wool, can also irritate the skin.

Prescription creams or creams containing urea, salicylic acid may also be beneficial.

Pulse dye laser may reduce the redness but not the roughness, and laser assisted hair removal may be of benefit in some cases.

For most sufferers the condition is of cosmetic importance only. In many cases the condition subsides in adulthood, although it may sometimes persist or worsen.
