"She has to learn some modesty!"

This is what my mother tells me last night after my niece's bath. We were babysitting, and had to give her a bath. She has a diaper rash right now so I was letting her run for a little without a diaper.
She is two years old. It was her, my aunt, my husband, and I in the living room when she started dancing naked.She went crazy. I told her that she is little, and there is nothing wrong with what she is doing. My Grandmother then says, "she has to learn some modesty. It is inappropriate for a man to change her diaper much less see her without one." 
She is ok most of the time, but she has a weird view on nudity and sex. So should a two year old not be running around naked in a secure home, or is it completely appropriate?

I hate that attitude about nudity, especially involving toddlers.

Too uptight for me...

Oi perfectly fine. If it was just company...like work friends I would put her in a diaper but family and close friends? Perfectly fine.

I wasn't much of one for letting my kids run around nude.  for a few minutes after bathing?  sure.  but literally, that's all.  I also insisted they have on more than just a diaper - the minimum they had on was a onesie.  I'm a bit old-fashioned when it comes to my girls.

My 18 month old does that every night (runs around naked) after her bath.  We literally call it her "naked stroll".  My parents and in laws love it!

There is nothing wrong with that.
