Or are you suggesting that a teen and an adult women is one and the same thing, as long as they have similar bodies?
What I am saying is, if a swimsuit top is too skimpy for a certain size bust, as determined by the water park, it doesn't matter what is the age of the woman wearing that swimsuit top.

Also, the park originally told the woman that she could stay if she put on shorts. The first employees that spoke to her didn't even mention her swimsuit top.

In fact, if you are going by age, I would much rather see an adult woman showing extensive cleavage than a "jail bait" age teenager who may not be able to handle the situation as maturely as the grownup.

Could this be taken into consideration when looking for an approprate attire for water-park?
Exactly. She should have worn a one-piece, or something similar. She still hasn't lost enough weight and toned up enough to be able to wear a bikini.

Personally I wish more women her age would do the same thing.

Was there a sign posted on what type of attire was appropriate or not? If anything, maybe she should have worn something a bit more conservative for a family water park. But not get kicked out over it.

Tempest in a teapot. Some prude got his knickers in a twist and overreacted. But, it's par for the course. Ever since they let us wimminfolk out of the house and stopped nailin' our feet to the floor, there's been some busybody getting upset over women in swimsuits. Look at the fourth picture down on this review of swimsuits over the years.

I'm sure no children were harmed in the wearing of that bikini. (Except as one poster said, her teenage daughter, who was no doubt mortified. Then again, it's a parent's job to mortify their teenagers. )

Well depending on how old she is there is a possible age discrimination law suit (oh! pun!).

I think it was unwise on the part of the 2 young female park employees who first reported the wardrobe issue. I think they are used to seeing so many of one type of person (usually younger) the fact that this lady stands out is what was the problem. She would have been fine at a family pool or family beach. But water parks are usually more popular with younger people, that was the difference.

Please. I just got back from a Vegas water park, and there were some LARGE people, and a lot of them were young.

I don't think she would have lasted long in any bathing suit. But breast discrimination is not covered by the 5th 14th Amendments.

100% disagree. If someone wants to wear a bikini? Go for it. Assuming the appropriate parts are sufficiently covered.
