Breast exposed at the beach!

we were at the beach and a woman was swimming in a bikini, and a wave caught her and her suit flipped down, the whole breast was exposed! Right in front of my children! She quicky covered it back up but still! How offensive! People should make sure they're fully covered and not wear suits that might expose their breast, even accidentally! Would this bother you?

EDIT:

So the consensus is that I'm ridiculous. That an accidental exposure of the breast isn't a huge deal and I can calmly explain that to my child.

Of course, I wholeheartedly agree. And accidental beach exposure of breasts is fairly common in the surf here in Hawaii.

So why is it that people are so ridiculous about a woman nursing her child without a cover outside of the home? Really, what's the difference? Why is THAT so hard to explain to a child? Why is the assumption that a woman nursing without a cover is attempting to draw attention or is being immodest, but the assumption of the woman on the beach is just going about her business and if anyone saw a flash or more of her breast then they need to get over themselves?

I genuinely want to know. My guess is that those who can't see the parallel are not, in fact, bothered by the breast. I believe it's the actual act of breastfeeding that bothers them.

It's just a boob.
I don't teach my kids to feel shame at a naked body.

Nope
Boob happens
My kids know what boobs look like, I would explain her swim suit slipped and move on.
It's only a big deal when you make it a big deal.

It would not bother me at all.  It was an accident.  It's not like she meant to flash anyone.

Does the stick up your ass make it hard to walk? It was an accident. Perhaps you should just stay home.
