She is not a young teen, there are many more age-appropriate bathing suits for the water park (and I don't mean matronly and old lady swim suits), and she is coming out of that top. Save that for the beach. I am sure that she was probably embarrassed when asked to cover up or leave, but she just should have known better. I bet her daughter already had said that to her.
Agreed. I have a teen-age son and he would be soo embarrassed if I went to a water park in something like that. He probably would refuse to go with me!

IF you are at the beach with your girlfriends or other adults - that's one thing. But at a family water park, it does seem a bit excessive. Of course, the water park didn't handle it all that well either.

My wife is pregnant right now and we recently went to a beach hotel with a water park attached( International Palms Resort, Cocoa Beach, fantastic, you should go!) and she is 25....she wore a one piece but I thought she would have looked fine in a bikini. The bikini was too small on that lady, not the style, but the size; I do not get why you would kick her out for it. It is just boobs....I see nipples and boobs all the time. No big deal.

Let It All Hang Out - The Hombres 1967 - YouTube


Well, she was showing her weight loss "Independence" in Missouri the 'Show me State'....

ROFL. Seriously, this is so funny. Unless the article is missing some information - perhaps she was bouncing around drawing undo attention to herself,- or toddlers / infants were crawling walking over thinking it was time to eat, I fail to see any reason to kick this woman out. The few times I'm at a beach or water park / amusement park there are lots more offensive things I'd want patrons to be asked to leave for wearing or doing.

She's a woman with poor choice in swimsuit (IMO), but, unless she was specifically drawing attention to herself what's the big deal? Sounds like some employee at the privately owned family water park (a woman of course or psychologically scarred man) got their nose out of joint and (arbitrarily) told her to cover this or that.

It seems the owners of waterpark need to clarify any swimwear rules. Wait, I think this is a perfect example of a new seasonal employment opportunity, water park "swimsuit police" - just think of all the men who would take minimum pay for that job!

I'm imagining a creative lawsuit solution....
In Missouri news today the State passed a law known the "MuuMuu" rule. Privately owned water parks will review your swimsuit upon entry and then depending on your 'aesthetic' - if you have too much "moo - moo" udder showing, they issue you a complementary 'Muumuu' for coverage when not in the water.

This seems another classic case of American cultural conditioning that can not differentiate between (nudity) partially exposed female breasts and (sex) things with a sexual connotation.

Of course all the men think she looks fine.
Well, not all men. I'm one and she's way too big in the superstructure for my taste.

And there's also this.

Make no mistake, I applaud her for the weight loss and her self-confidence but I do feel a little more common sense should have prevailed. I have to wonder if she's competing with her daughter.

The problem is some people label things as "obscene" when they really mean, "not attractive to me." It sets a bad precedent.

Where do you draw the line? I am absolutely positive someone out there thinks I shouldn't wear knee length skirts, because it is "obscene" or "inappropriate."

Well, may be all the teen-age girls that day had more common sense and didn't wear that kind of swimsuit with that kind of bust size??

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.
What else could they do under the circumstances? To bring her the different swimsuit top, that they had to keep "on file" specially for her?
Apparently they were so dazzled by her look, that they've asked her to cover something... at least something because being in disarray they couldn't figure out for a moment what exactly made her look so obscene)))

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.
So what you are saying the whole idea behind this was to "show extensive cleavage" and "to handle situation maturely?"

You are right--it was poorly handled. I imagine that someone complained to one of the probably teenage workers. I am sure that no worker enjoyed having to deal with this situation. There should be posted rules (maybe there are) and everyone has to follow them and that includes attire.

I already said this on another post, but although she is proud of her new body, she is delusional that she looks good in the bikini. At her age, she should cover those droopy boobs, not flaunt them. No one wants to see that.
As I said before, if all of us were to be booted from a pool because of how we look, then at least half of us would be. As we mature, we should dress accordingly.
