It's her first one. And yes, she does have enough to hold it up. Opinions on this?

I got my dd some because she didn't want lines in her prom dresses and we were on spring break right before. If they are covered its covering as much as with straps. People make too much of bathing suits I say.

Not appropriate to wear out in public. If you have a home pool and want to tan, fine.

Kids...yes...15 is still a kid...are way to sexualised. It also doesn't stay on well if they are playing around and being kids as they should.

I dont see anything wrong with strapless bathing suits at all.

I am with you, I actually think they are cute.

The strapless bathing suits actually cover more than a lot of bikini tops because they are a ban-do type design with the straight line across the top of cleavage instead of two triangles with a gap in between.    They also come with a removable neck strap that can be put on if they are 'playing around', swimming or diving.

That is what I was saying. Because there is no strap doesn't mean there is not coverage.

My problem with a strapless stems from the possibility of it falling down. If she going to actually be swimming, diving, or playing around there is the possibility of it falling down. Also teenage boys love to see if they can tug a strapless bathing suit down. If all she's going to be doing is sunbathing then I guess it's okay. Besides you are the one that has to be ok with it and not anyone else.

Its the thought of the fact that it's designed to be removed easily. Gets the guys thinking....
