At the heart of it, the bathing suit is about modesty.
The very act of swimming, immersing oneself in water for sheer pleasure, brings with it a likelihood of nakedness. Culturally, however, we are compelled to cover up. In this way, a bathing suit is a symbol of that modesty and the desire to keep a certain amount of protection. There is also an implication associated with this symbol of a connection to water that may not be present in the dream itself.
If you are wearing a bathing suit, then you have in the past or may in the future connect yourself to water, the ultimate symbol of emotional expression.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
If a coat features in your dream, this probably suggests the self you present in public; for example, you may be outspoken in public but your partner will know that, deep down, you are shy. An overcoat suggests protectiveness and not showing intimacy or vulnerability; what in waking life are you trying to ward off? Fear of losing your coat can suggest fear of letting your guard down.
If the coat is too short or not warm enough, you may be craving more love and affection than you are getting in waking life. According to Freud, the cloak is a symbol of female sexuality, but may also represent secrecy and concealment.
If a jacket features in your dream, this suggests the degree of formality with which you present yourself to others. A raincoat may suggest tears or the release of emotion.
If you are wearing a suit in your dream, this suggests the image you or other people have of you; the way you present yourself to others and different kinds of suits—wetsuits, bathing suit—represent different attitudes and situations.... The Element Encyclopedia

Dreams in which you are being chased or pursued show that you feel threatened by someone or something in life. The key to such dreams is to discover the identity of your pursuer.
If you know the person or the sphere of life they represent, try to work out why you should be feeling intimidated by them in the real world.
If you didn’t recognize the person, it is possible that they represent aspects of yourself about which you are in denial or from which you are trying to escape; such an interpretation is particularly likely if they are of the same sex and their appearance repulsed you. The attacker may have been your shadow, representing your dependence, neediness, jealousy, greed or lust. Your unconscious is encouraging you to come to terms with this quality within yourself and deal with it.
If a monster, animal or anything nonhuman was chasing you, this symbolizes internal fears rather than external threats. Such creatures generally represent your aggressive animal or instinctual nature which you need to learn to control. Not knowing who or what is out there in the darkness trying to get you is a classic anxiety or frustration dream often experienced if you are about to begin therapy; the anxiety is provoked by your realization that the therapist might reveal unexamined areas of yourself. Whoever or whatever your pursuer symbolizes, remember that they represent a challenge you need to face in order for it to be neutralized. As with dreams of pursuit, if you are drowning or struggling to breathe in your dream, you may be experiencing feelings of panic and uncertainty in waking life. Such a dream also alerts you to areas of your unconscious that need to be confronted.... The Element Encyclopedia

These, like books, are symbols of information and knowledge but because their contents are more temporary and disposable, they don’t tend to share the symbolism of wisdom with books. The main function of newspapers in waking life is to keep you informed and that is why they can have the same meaning as radio or news bulletins. So if you dreamed of passing a news stand and seeing a headline, the message of that headline may have personal significance for you. If, on the other hand, you dreamed of scanning the newspaper for a news item or advertizement, this may indicate your anticipation or desire to hear some kind of news or result in waking life. Alternatively a dream in which you are flipping through a magazine may suggest that you have become bored with your life and that you are looking for stimulation.
If you remember pausing over a specific article in your dream, perhaps your unconscious is urging you to consider its message or to take time out of your routine to enjoy yourself.

Suitcase analysis of a dream
Carlos dreamed: “I was looking for my bag and could not find it anywhere. I was at the airport and my plane was about to take off. They announced the last call to board, and I could not remember where I had left it. I was very distressed, it had all my documents, valuables, and money. But I could not miss the plane because an important business meeting awaited me. I spent the whole dream running back and forth, searching every corner of the airport, but nothing, the suitcase did not appear and I couldn’t leave; the tickets were inside.”
When Charles had this dream he was suffering the first symptoms of mild depression. He felt very sad, insecure, and uncomfortable in his life, but did not know how to improve it. Searching in dreams alludes to a lack, something that we need for our emotional stability. The suitcase full of important things reflects the values that guide us in life, without which we would feel lost, like Carlos. The plane shows our desire to excel, to rise or transcend our daily concerns. The fact that he missed it indicates that he felt unable to move forward, despite his continued attempts (running from back and forth, looking everywhere . . .). A month later, Carlos began treatment with a psychoanalyst to overcome his sadness. After a few days, he found his oneiric suitcase in a dream and managed to catch the plane. In his waking world, he began to understand the causes of his discomfort and feel more satisfied and confident in himself.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Example: ‘In last night’s dream the baby I dream about incessantly had been locked in a suitcase but was quite unscathed when taken out, except that it was very dirty, but still not crying. I do not have any memories in connection with these babies and the only feelings I have are those of remorse that I have neglected the baby. I have had four children of my own, none of whom were ever neglected in this way’ (Mrs C). Mrs C uses the suitcase in at least two ways. One is her womb, or reproductive ability. Although she has had four children, this does not stop her unconsciously desiring more.
The second is what ‘luggage’—emotional feelings, urges, thoughts—she carries.
Generally, it depicts the womb, what one carries inside oneself, such as longings, attitudes, fears; how we see ourself socially—the luggage might be a sign of status, how we rate ourself; also a symbol of independence or going somewhere.

Swearing or using bad language in your dream suggests hidden anger or fear. Both Jung and Fritz Perls believed that each dream character and object is an aspect of yourself.

Maybe you are too timid in waking life and need to listen more to the parts of yourself that are forceful, pushy or lewd? If you find that someone is shouting at you in your dream, this may be a warning, urging you to slow down and think things through; it may also, however, be a greeting or applause for your achievements.
