According to NY Daily News, Madelyn Sheaffer says she was discriminated against for being full-figured, after she was asked to leave or cover herself up after wearing bikini bottoms that she was told were too small. Sheaffer, who recently lost 100 pounds, didn’t take the request lightly.

Instead, she is speaking out about the incident, which is now causing a viral stir around the Internet. “I just felt like I was singled out,” Sheaffer told KSHB of her experience at Adventure Oasis Water Park in Independence, where she was cooling off in the pool with her niece and nephew. “I felt like it was both age and body discrimination.”

This women should know it is not classy to be in a bikini two sizes tooo small for you it is trashy. She would look so much sexier if she wore a bikini that fit properly. Same for clothes. those girls in bikinis at the park I am sure fit them properly. I wouldn't want my teenage son exposed to that.
The bottom was fine, but i have agree with the park on the top. There's showing clevage, then there's leaving nothing to the imagination. I applaud her for loosing the weight, just get a top that fits.
Everybody's moaning about "the CHILDREN!" seeing her, but I seriously doubt most kids would even notice. They're at a waterpark. They're running around having fun. It's the other adults who check each other out.
Personally, I think the suit was too skimpy, but certainly not to the point of being obscene. It's her body and her decision. Just because it's not my taste doesn't mean I'm going to faint at the sight of a boob over the age of 30.
