Anything goes-just keep your top on at the beach. The Europeans tend to go topless but I never saw a local without her top. In fact, a lot of local women swim in shorts and a t-shirt.

I think the other advice given about Belize is only appropriate for the beach resorts on the Cayes. I lived on the mainland for a while and it is definitely important to cover up. Knee length skirts and t-shirts are fine- anything that reveals too much flesh will get you harrassment from local men.
