She has lost weight and is proud of it. Understandable. But she is still delusional if she thinks she looks good in that bathing suit.
If women who look bad in their bathing suits were all kicked out of the beaches or swimming pools, it would amount to at least half of them (myself included).

I agree with the water park. The woman is obviously trying to draw attention to herself and it's inappropriate, at best.

That was more than 20 years ago, and guess what, no body CARES about it.

Just another example of the ho hum, what else dumb can the Americans do this week ?

I feel bad for him.

These of course are all the wrong reasons for singling one person out. There were others in the park wearing bikinis, and the one she is wearing is not that bad. I've seen more revealing stuff at water parks and beaches. But some uptight, frumpy mom probably felt intimidated or didn't like that her adolescent son was seeing something in real life that she allows him to see on television each day. It doesn't matter if she doesn't look good in it or not. Most people don't look good in bathing suits, should we ban all but the perfect people from wearing them? Or just the ones who are well endowed?

If the biggest concern in a parent's life is at their precious kid will see some cleavage, I feel sorry for that entire household.

This. After waiting through the ad I was expecting a WAY skimpier bikini. You wonder what would happen to these people if they went to a sauna or beach in Europe.

I was also expecting to see a more revealing suit.

I wonder if there is more to this than her just wearing a bikini and swimming around the wave pool.

Was she acting inappropriately? Was she making other uncomfortable with her actions? Perhaps she was saying vulgar things?

I believe there is more to this story than it seems...

So, it's OK to wear revealing clothes as long as you look good and are young? Total hypocrisy.

No, I don't think this woman's suit was in good taste, and I wouldn't recommend that anyone show that much skin, but really, be consistent.

Not at all. If people don't exercise appropriate judgement then I have no problem with guidelines being enforced. What might look great one person could look too revealing on another.

You have a reference for the guidelines of this park?
I must have missed it.

They must be subjective. I have no problem with that either.
