Kind of an aside, but this sort of reminds me of a girl in Guelph who got arrested for going topless at some public place where there were plenty of men who were also shirtless. Went all the way to the Supreme Court of Ontario and she won. Now it's perfectly legal for women to go topless on public beaches. I personally would not, but if I was inclined to go for the strapless tan I wouldn't get thrown in the slammer.
I don't see what's wrong with the suit. Not for me but nothing awful.

I thought she was showing a lot of skin, but I also think the issue was her size & her body type. She's right; other women showing just as much wouldn't get in trouble like she did simply due to their different body type.
I think calling the police is a bit much.
But I also think she was enjoying the attention to some degree....wearing a suit like that, and going on tv to talk about it when she knows people will look at pictures of her in a bathing suit. My worst nightmare.
And yes, those of us with big boobs have bathing suit issues. I only wear one pieces, but I always have oodles of cleavage in bathing suits. It's that or find a turtleneck suit, which isn't really what I'm looking for in a bathing suit.
I happen to be modest and WANT to cover myself up more, but she doesn't and that's fine. I can't imagine being so horrified I'd complain and want her out of the park.

I live in a pretty conservative area when it comes to swimming. You can trust me when I say I have looked for the most modest bathing suit possible. At a D cup, it is just not possible to find a bathing suit that does not show any cleavage at all. If I am swimming with just my immediate family I wear my swimsuit as is. If I am in a mixed crowd I wear a large t-shirt over top. Part of it is that I do not love how I look in a swimsuit.
I agree she was enjoying the attention. The article said that she had lost 100 lbs, so she was probably wearing the skimpy bathing suit expressly to show off her new bod. But so what? I agree that I think a different bathing suit would have flattered her body better, but I still don't think she was wearing anything seriously outrageous. Personally I stick with tankini tops and board shorts, but I have body issues. I'm kind of impressed that she has the confidence to rock the string bikini.
