    It would be interesting to know what their policy is on the string bikinis young women are wearing nowadays, far more revealing than a 5 yr old without a top.

    Me too, as a larger person, I wear trunks and a sun rash guard / swim shirt... Protects me from the sun, and avoids looking ridicules...

    I was thinking the same thing, there was a young lady in a very skimpy bikini earlier this week at the Kings Land pool. I was not offended, but it seemed a bit out of place at family orient resort..

    I was a lifeguard for several summers (back years before the internet.. enough said?).

    Swimsuits got worn. Sometimes the boys wore tee shirt tops with their trunks and girls worn either 1 piece or 2 piece outfits. No wet tee shirts only for the females.

    First job was at a small pool. I would show up almost an hours early to clean the pool, backwash the filters and reset the chemicals plus add water to the pool. I might do these chores in a Bikini suit .. itsy-bitty size ....to help blend in my various tan lines for my off time affairs. I guarded in 1 piece suits. The pool president's wife showed up early ... was shocked by my bikini ... I was 19 and had spent the last 9 months near Daytona Beach in Florida ... told her I was working on tan lines (which I was) and would NEVER guard in that style of swim wear.

    The next summer, I worked a lake ... mostly the late afternoon til 8PM shift (as I took AM college classes) ... always in a 1 piece suit as these teenage boys swimmers were SHARKS. Swimsuit failure was a concern .. particularly in a lake setting. Seemed a lot of teenage girls' mothers preferred 1 piece swimwear also for their daughters.

    We were at a kiddie park at Disney World that had a lot of water features. There were a lot of little kids running around without tops. My daughter was 16 months. I let her run around without a top and a young female employee told me she had to wear a top. My daughter was so little and didn't have a lot of hair. The only reason you could tell she was a girl was because she was wearing pink.

    I think this is all "fake misunderstanding based on fake rules" :thumbup:

    So unfair to the good people running the hotel.

    FWIW...this spring, there was a 20-something woman at the Intercontinental LA pool who was topless. No one flinched or told her to put on a top (perhaps this is LA?). It was customary for women in French and Greek beaches to not wear tops (at least this was customary 30 year ago when I visited - no big deal - even grandmas were topless), not sure about today.

    I personally do not have issues with a 5 year old girl without a top, however just as some restaurants require shirts and shoes and have dress codes, I think it is the right of the hotel to demand a dress code and patrons should comply when the dress code is reasonable.

    As of 4 years ago, still customary in Greece and Côte d'Azur, and more
    recently on So-Be, Miami, as my camera with a telephoto lens can attest.

    Really? You want people to know that you took pictures of women's breasts, strangers who did not know they were being photographed, with a telephoto lens?

    Not too late to delete your post.

    Not quite, but pretty close, actually.

    But I used to run when I weighed more and wasn't as fit. And if the reason really was that I was overweight at the time, then that reason "ewww..that person is not fit and trim" would hold less weight (so to speak :)) than other arguments.

    Anyway, it was the "spokesman" that approached me, so I have no idea of the reason...but seriously doubt that was it.

    Cheers.

    For many years I taught with a Greek woman. She looked down on "Americans" because we were not sophisticated like her. They went to Greece every year with their teen age daughter to nude beaches. In fact, she claimed that her husband and her high school age daughter took showers together. I didn't care to live her lifestyle and if it made me provincial, so what
