"You can't wear that, you're a MOM!"

I was shopping with my SIL and this woman, who had 3 kids in tow calling her "Mommy," was grabbing bikinis off the rack to try on. SIL turned and said, "You can't wear that, you're a MOM!" She went on to explain that moms shouldn't wear teeny weeny bikinis because it's "gross." 

I don't really think it's an issue, though, as long as you have the body and/or the confidence to pull it off. What do you think? Should moms avoid bikinis and stay covered up at the beach?

No, if you have a body that you are proud of, show it off!  If you can still wear a bikini proudly after 3 kids, I think that is FANTASTIC!

I agree. Being a mom should not stop anyone from wearing a bikini.

Just because you're a mom doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to wear a bikini. I'm a mom of 2 and I worked damn hard for my body, so if I want to throw one on in the summer I will.

I think your SIL is an idiot.  No woman should wear a bikini unless she has the body to pull it off.  But if she does, go for it.  It doesn't matter whether she is a mom or a grandmother.

no, especially if you have the body to do it.

The only time I THINK it is gross is when someone is VERY pregnant - then that is gross. JMO
