My mom found one she really likes and wants to get and I am mortified.
I don't want to upset her, but I really would rather her NOT get it. D:
She isn't overweight or anything, she actually has a pretty good body. She looks much younger than she actually is, so if it was just strangers, I wouldn't really care... She just turned 50, but most people suspect that she is in her late thirties or early forties. But I just would reaaaally rather my friends not see her like that. It's weird and I'm not very comfortable with it.
I would give her hell and make fun of her saying "MY EYES!!! THEY BURN!!!" Then she would probably tell me to shut up and try to hit me. :D I have fun picking on my mom sometimes, lol.
But in all seriousness I wouldn't care if she wore one. The only thing that would make me be weird out by it. The fact that she is over weight. Though if I saw any person who was really over weight/obese it would disturb me to see them in one.
I don't see what's so embarrassing about that. My mom is almost 45 and I see her in a bikini every summer with friends and strangers. Nothing to be embarrassed about. It's your moms choice anyway. You can feel whichever way you want. You can make suggestions, but you can't prevent her from wearing what she wants.
If she's fit enough for a bikini, hey, why not. Hell. I'm getting close to my fitness goal and look better shirtless every week... starvation diet+some working out. When I meet my goal I'll probably go shirtless everywhere!
When I was in high school my mother was a belly dancer and nude model, but as embarrassing as it is it's their life. But damn I was mortified! Especially when she hung a tasteful nude in our house on the wall. But I learned to deal with it.
Are you afraid guys your age will think she is sexy or something?
Considering my mom is fat and that she doesn't even wear shorts... Both her and I would be mortified. If she still had an athletic body like she did when she was young, then I wouldn't think anything of it.
A really skimpy bikini alla something Donatella Versache (fuck hoe you spell it) would wear? I'd be mortified, but a normal bikini? No problem at all. It's not up to me, and even if it were I wouldn't mind at all.
