I know what you're saying though, as I'm there too...though she doesn't have any sign of breasts yet, she's getting some hips on her.
My mom freaked at me having a bikini at 16, but admitted today she had 2 at my daughter's age. This "other parent" wouldn't have a problem with other girls wearing 2 peice suits of the non string bikini styles at these ages.
What to do with the one who insists on wearing shirts that look like her 2 yo sister outgrew them?!
Sunny: having a 12 year old boy what is your insight. Are boy their age looking? And if so, would they look "that way" at a girl in a two piece more than a girl in a one piece? I do worry about the older crowd assuming that she is older than she is based on her body. The attendant at the dressing room said an older man was sitting outside the rooms just waiting for a peek of girls trying on suits. So therefore girls should be more modest. I thought WRONG!!! You should have called the security lady. But thats a whole other issue. Blame the kids instead of the perv.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
Were you at Target? I saw a *really* cute red monkey swimsuit there in the girl sizes.
If you are anywhere near Woodinville, they have an Hanna Anderson outlet and might have a little big more modest two piece.
I would let my DD wear a two piece. I'd figure, yeah, she might end up self-conscious. But, if I made a big deal of it she probably would for sure. KWIM.
Of course, its easy for me to say that--- DD is 5

If it ever stops raining, we might get to go to a pool.
