I was once on a beach in Long Island, NY. There were two women on the beach. They were obviously mother/daughter. The mother looked to be well over 60. Both had on thong bikinis. While the daughter looked a bit naked but ok, the mother looked ridiculous. It was obvious that she was very proud of her body (very wrinkled but trim) and felt she could still pull off the "nearly naked" look. However, considering this was a family beach, the sight of this senior citizen walking around the beach in full view of many many children in a bath

ing suit where her entire rear end was exposed was not APPROPRIATE. It was obscene, pornography, repulsive and just pathetic. The bathing suit would have been fine for a private pool party or something less public but for a woman as old as this lady obviously was and to wear such a naked look at a crowd public beach was in such bad taste.

We have all seen from time to time people in "inappropriate" attire. "Inappropriate" may just be in our opinion but "inappropriate" none the less.
I do agree with you on the 60 year old wrinkled women in a tiny bikini. I'm just saying that I don't care what people are wearing. And I do see it all the time the women [overweight/underweight/ older] with the tiny swimsuit, overweight women with tiny jeans and cut off shirts although it is winter now here but spring is around the corner and all the extra meat will be haning out soon! Whatever I don't care. I can't change peoples choices on clothing.

Have a great day everyone!
