So how young is too young to wear a bikini?

A friend often hosts pool parties for her kids.  Her daughter is 8 and had some friends over recently.  She requested that none of the girls wear bikinis.  How young is too young for a bikini? I'm a new mom and never gave it much thought.

I'd rather see young in a bikini than teenagers when they are more developed. My almost 2yo wears a bikini with her chubby tummy sticking out. Cute. A 14 year old trying to show almost boobs? Not cute.

My daughter's going to wear one-pieces for a while.

Between 4 and 18 is inappropriate in my opinion.

My 5 year old wears tankinis and always has. I don't think any age is too young, really. I'm not a fan of skimpy bikinis on young girls, but I'd never tell another mother what to put her daughter in.

No one tells me what type of swimsuit my daughter can and can not wear. Soo stupid.

I saw a girl the ohter day, I know she wasn't more than 12, wearing a bikini AND her belly button was pierced! Such a sad state.

My daughter had a bikini when she was a baby, now she has a tankini at 4. I don't like seeing the tiny bikinis on children and young teens though.

My daughters are 18 month and 8 both wear tankinis. My oldest begs for bikinis I just think she's too young to be showing that much skin.

That's fine, doesn't mean my kid will be buying a special suit for her pool.
