I'm a fat chick and I wouldn't have told on her. My husband would have kicked my arse. LOL

Well I shouldn't have said just the heavier women would complain, nor just the flatter chested women. Any woman with some class or decency would've or could've complained.

It's just that before I even clicked the story or looked at the video I was already thinking, "I betcha she has big boobs."

Her bottom has more fabric than any that I own and I've never had an issue, including at Sesame Place with my 2 children.

Yup...but the problem seems to be that no standard was set, or at least, being enforced across the board. She got tossed for, it seems, wearing the same attire as countless other patrons.

They CAN do what they want, but arbitrary targeting is generally bad business practice.

She looked fine for being in public. This country is so messed up, I'm surprised at nothing. I'm 24 and don't find her unattractive.

The standard should be set by common sense. It's a family park with kids there. Including boys who are twelve and over.

It's pathetic that anyone had to throw her out.

If my wife and I go on a trip to Jamaica alone, for our 15th anniversary one type of bathing suit would be appropriate. At a pool party with kids, a different bathing suit would do well.

When I'm at the water park I put on a rash guard and board shorts when I go on the rides..... ALL bathing suits head north on some of the rides.

That's common sense.

Smile I agree - plus a story

Think Joan Crawford in Berserk (although she was playing a character). Women with class seem to know when it's time to cover up a certain area. Even figure skaters in their thirties begin to wear longer, kerchief-hemmed, flowy, skirts when performing. That's because they have class. Unlike, for example, Madonna, who continues to strut across the stage with bitchy aplomb wearing virtually nothing (except bullet-proof fishnets) on the botton. Yuck.

Yep. The ick factor.
I was around this woman's age and went to visit my parents which I did often. I had on a pair of shorts, top, sneakers but looked fine or so I thought. My father asked me to sit down and mentioned to me in a very nice way that once a woman gets to a certain age, shorts (!!) might not be so appropriate. My father, who had never mentioned anything like this must have really felt I looked, well, not so good, in shorts.

BTW, I have very long legs and always complimented on them but that's the last time I wore shorts out "in public" after that conversation.

I will say that my parents promoted more of a classic dress - if you stay with the classic styles, people may want to see more of you; if you expose most of what you have, well, you get the idea.

Unfortunately, dress codes are standardized so that everyone adheres to them, rather than them just being arbitrarily applied to certain people.

Thank God there are no boys twelve and over living in Jamaica.
