At what age is it acceptable to you that people start wearing tops or bottoms for that matter? At that age do we teach "little children"?

This is cultural.... I've been on the beaches in Mexico where grown women don't wear tops. And before you start picturing the latest Sports Illustrated swimsuit model...that's not the case. Culturally outside the US ... being topless isn't viewed the same.

But we're in the US... so when in Rome....

I guess the mom didn't know that BOOBS are private parts at the public pool?

I saw a baby with just a swim diaper on and it was pink so I know it was a girl. They should have thrown that baby's mom out too! I am just kidding but really a 4 yr old? Come on people...a 4 yr old has no "boobs" and unless she had bows how did they know she was a girl? You really think the 4 yr old boys were checking her ? She is still a baby! Maybe the lifeguards should be watching potential life threatening situations instead of wasting time enforcing dress code. Or if really obsessed with dress code how about telling women over 300 pounds to wear a one piece;)
