2 piece bikinis on little girls? *picture added*

 I saw some other moms saying they don't let their little girls wear 2 piece bikinis.
So I was just curious how common this was?  My daughter just turned 2 and my mom got her a 2 piece for her birthday, we're doing swimming lessons together in afew months and I can't wait to put her in it!  It has ruffles on the butt and is just really over the top.
Do you let your, lets say 5 year old and under, wear a 2 piece?

EDIT**
Wow, this post really blew up, I'm only on page 6 so bare with me lol...Here is a picture of my daughter last summer, she was about 18 months old.  I just don't see what is inappropriate about this?  We had a great day at the beach :)  Her swim suit this summer doesn't have the skirt, its more just like underpants with a big ruffle on the bum.

Now because she has trouble getting the top of a one piece down to go potty. BUT she has to have a Tankini so she is covered. She is only little once so we like to keep her innocent for the most part.

Nope. Bikinis to me represent sexy...not appropriate for young girls.

I think they are cute. I don't see "sexual" when I look at little girls bikinis. I just see cute.

DD had a one piece last summer, but she was only like 7 months. I see nothng wrong with two pieces, especially i they are potty training. But there is a difference betewwn a bikini and a two piece IMO

I think 2 piece suits are adorable, and my DD had one at age 1, 2, and 3. She picked out a one piece at age 4. We'll see what she picks this year.

Honestly, a 2 piece was easier during the diaper changing/potty training days too.
