What would you have said to sil's rude comment?

We were at the beach w dh's family.  I was wearing a 2 piece bathing suit. I am 49 , slim and in shape, but I don't have a  tiny waist or six pack abs.  My sil told me she wouldn't wear a bikini, w my body.  She has always been chubby and hates her body. She wears frumpy swimsuits. My body isn't perfect, but I take care of myself and i'm happy w it.  I like to get my tummy tan and my dh thinks I'm sexy.

I said,"I like my body and so does your brother."

What would you have said?  What is sil's problem?

She has never married, and hasn't had any recent boyfriends.  She is currently pursuing a former bf, who wants to be friends.  She is 45, and I think she's unhappy w her life.  She still lives w her parents. : (

I try to be nice, but her snide comments try my patience.  How would you handle her?

I think what you said was just great. To the point, slightly uncomfortable, but not overly rude.

Sounds like someone's a bit jealous of you! I'd just ignore her. People like that are the way they are and there isn't much that can be done about it. Just take it with a grain of salt!

I think what you said is perfect.  Nothing more needed to be said.

I think what you said is perfect. I would not have been so quick with a come back, I probably would've burst into tears. Good for you standing up for yourself.

Good thing I'm not you, and have higher self esteem than that.

I would tell her to go fuck a cucumber and back off.

I would have said, "and if I had your frumpy body, i would probably never leave the house."
