Nothing too showy, we're only 13... (well, actually, I turned 14 a little while ago, but close enough.)

It doesn't matter.
1 piece
2 piece
Whatever is comfortable. Don't let someone tell you what's in appropriate and what's not. If you think your daughter should wear a 1 piece make her wear it.
I let my daughter wear 1 or 2, but she generally makes her own decision to wear a 2 piece with a shirt on top, and sometimes even shorts.
But obviously some swim suits are to revealing for girls who are so young so just be careful what you buy.

mouse35law, just something to think about: my mom, when I was 13, let me wear a two piece with one condition: it had to cover my middle. so in short, that translates to a tankini, or she said I could do a bikini with a t-shirt on top. she said I can finally pick my own this year, bikini if I want, since I'll turn 15 over the summer. I don't think I'll get a bikini, I'll stick with a one piece. but of course, my 8 year old sister has already worn her first bikini. in short, though: basically, wear something that covers your middle!!

Good advice Foxface I'm proud of you !

thanks. in all reality,, while other teen girls wear bikinis and risk stomach sunburn, I wear something that covers. heck, sometimes I'll just go jump in in my t-shirt and shorts, just for the heck of it. so yes, I have worn 2 piece suits, but they cover.

maybe i am old or old-fashioned, but i hate to see young ladies in a bikini. not only do i think it is extremely dangerous, but i think that by allowing young girls to wear bikinis (as well as other clothing styles too mature for the age) we are pushing them too quickly into sexual awareness and maturity that they are too young and naive to handle responsibly. television and other forms of media are already forcing sexuality on our younger children, we need to slow that down a bit with guidelines.

my daughter was not allowed to wear 2 piece bathing suits until she was 15, and not allowed bikinis until after she left my home. my 21 year year old daughter now thanks me and understands, but at the time i was "ruining her life!"

exactly how I feel about my daughter. she's only 2 now, but I wouldn't want someone peeping when she's in a bra and panties (in the not so far distant future) therefore it's inappropriate for her to go out in public in such attire or lack thereof.
so tired of the media pressuring young girls into "sexy"(trashy) clothes and behaviors. we condemn pedophiles but the entire world basically encourages us to put our children on display. such a tragic catch 22

try something that covers your middle. I used to wear one pieces all the time, but then my mom said I could get a 2 piece on one condition: that in the end result, my middle was covered. I ended up getting a tankini.

Totally depends on the child's parents? They make those decisions, not the 13 year old. That being said, 13 year olds can be mentally or physically more like a small child or a high school kid. Level of responsibility is a factor, but the pubescent doesn't make these decisions, adults do. And why is this 13 year old trying to entice a sexual response? Better question.

i saw nothing in her original post that suggested that SHE wanted a sexual response. i believe she and mom and dad had a disagreement, and she decided to take a survey.

Well whatever your parents think. It is not up to the thirteen year old. If your parents say you can wear a bikini but your uncomfortable in it then dont wear a bikini. Over all its the parents and kids decision.
