Woman escorted from water park because her bikini was too small

Park workers say the bottoms showed too much

Madelyn Sheaffer had just lost more than 100 pounds and was proud to wear a bikini to a water park with her family and friends.

That day turned into an embarrassment when two young girls told her the bathing suit she was wearing wasn’t covering enough.

She asked to talk to a manager who told her to either cover up or leave. Sheaffer told 41 Action News “I felt like it was both age and body discrimination and I felt like I could look around me and I could see a handful of other girls half my age, wearing the same size swimming suit and not being singled out and told to put on clothes or leave.”

Sheaffer told the manager she wanted to talk to police to file a complaint but that backfired.

When cops arrived, they escorted Sheaffer from the park. Madelyn claims the officers were on her side but told her they “had to do their job.”

Workers at the water park haven’t commented as of yet. What do you think? Please vote on our poll and leave your thoughts in our comments section below before you leave.

She probably has some hefty stretch marks and it freaked out those young girls.

Again, Nick, there’s ZERO new under the (summer) sun ...

She was afraid to come out of the locker
She was as nervous as she could be
She was afraid to come out of the locker
She was afraid that somebody would see
One, two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy, bitsy, teentie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the locker she wanted to stay
Two, three, four, stick around we’ll tell you more

She was afraid to come out in the open
And so a blanket around she wore
She was afraid to come out in the open
And so she sat bundled up on the shore
Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy, bitsy, teentie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the blanket she wanted to stay
Two, three, four, stick around we’ll tell you more

Now she is afraid to come out of the water
And I wonder what she’s gonna do
Now she is afraid to come out of the water
And the poor little girl’s turning blue
Two, three, four, tell the people what she wore

It was an itsy, bitsy, teenie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
That she wore for the first time today
An itsy, bitsy, teentie, weenie, yellow polka-dot bikini
So in the water she wanted to stay
(From the locker to the blanket)
(From the blanket to the shore)
(From the shore to the water)
Yes, there isn’t any more

Woman escorted from water park because her bikini was too small

This was a tricky job, a job that could be handled by only one company: the Lazamataz 24/7 Escort Service for Women with Small Bikinis. Their motto: "No Bikini Too Small!"

Please, you see more and hear more on everyday Television.

Although it was a little too revealing for a family place, and bad on her for wearing it, but really? What is with Americans being prudes. Sheesh, half of Europe runs around in the nude on their beaches and no one is worse off for it. Guess what? We have bodies under our clothes.

I was at the beach at south Walton county Florida last year

Like every year

Young couple from Belgium

She had a thong....

My wife has worn one at south beach ...without our kids....I lived in Brazil....I’m thong tolerant as is most of Florida

But south Walton has an ordinance..... I felt sorry for the girl when beach patrol came by and ticketed her

She simply did not know better.....and was shamed and boo hooed at bit

They were discreet under an umbrella

My wife....in two piece.....and I went over and tried
To make them feel more comfortable and welcome

We ended up getting to know them....he was a doc and she a mom...their kids were at their beach house rental with her mom

I don’t blame folks for local custom and the cop came back by and took the ticket back....he told me he rarely writes them

Now in neighboring spring break Bay county it would be impossible to enforce such a thing

Once at Key Biscayne the hotel pool folks told my wife if pregnant she had to wear one piece...the old intercontinental.....we didn’t make a scene....just walked out to beach

In the gay pride era it all seems kind of trivial

Gays are allowed to have sex on the beach in front of whomever they please - on public streets too.

And don’t you homophobe haters complain about it either...

As a woman, I will say that many women who lose a lot of weight tend to go overboard. For instance, a woman may have gone from an XL to a M but insists their now a small!

And she looks like she's really holding in that stomach in that picture...

That being said, I’ve seen women much bigger than her wearing skimpy bikinis. They either think they look good or just don't care.

Oh, we women, myself included can be so catty and judgmental...

There are two ways to look at this, maybe it was really a standard bikini.

I fail to see anywhere in the article where it says that the police eventually shot a small dog.

Well, that’s the idea, isn’t it.

We are supposed to see people fornicating in public now, I guess, and just be glad they aren’t homos.

They did the right thing. Women like this piss me off. You’re 50, not 17. It’s inappropriate (even for a 17 year old, frankly). Grow up.
