It's natural, people who think they shouldn't be allowed to do it are jacka**es.

just read a few pages here...oh dear..BK (before kids) I decided to be wild & take a vacation alone, went to Morea a beautiful island in the South Pacific...these were the days that I looked quite good in a string bikini (Teehee) well I wanted to get an even tan and had the strings untied...along came a wave...oh no my camera!! jumped up so fast to grab it & was mortified that my string bikini was gone!! guess what absolutely no one cared..why? haha.. because Morea is owned by France where topless beaches are the norm!! taught me that just because I might have biases about the human body others don't...several years later, I breast fed my daughter without bias about it, it was quite a beautiful bonding experience & quite frankly when she was hungry..she was hungry..end of story!!

Why are you offended or disgusted by someone's else's weight? And why would you specify "girls/women"? Is a girl with a "big belly" somehow worse than a man with a big belly? If you think so, that is sexist and wrong.

As for muffin tops, I have had problems with my weight in the past. Depending on where I was, my jeans could either be very loose, or tight, and I very well might have sported a "muffin top" at some point. That was no one's problem but my own. Even if your jeans aren't too tight, you might still have a "muffin top", simply because you don't have a flat stomach.

Trust me, I did not nor have I ever thought I was sexy. I used to feel terribly about myself.

Now, I don't think that you should wear jeans that are ten sizes too small or anything like that, mostly because I can't see how that could be comfortable.

What I choose to wear is none of your business. Nor is my or anyone else's weight or bellies. If you have a problem with someone else's weight or "big belly", you can kindly take your opinions home, with what I assume is a flat stomach and perfectly fitting clothing,
What a person does or does not find offensive has nothing to do with ignorance. Try looking up the definition of might enlighten you.

As I said, I find muffin tops, especially on young girls, offensive and disgusting. It has NOTHING to do with weight - I NEVER said or intimated I have anything against overweight people. As a former bodybuilder and fitness trainer I have worked with lots of overweight people - they are people just as anyone else.

If you don't find girls walking around with their huge bellies flopping in the breeze for all to see offensive, that is your opinion. I have my opinions, and if you don't like them that is too bad.

Just so you know in advance if any of them come up in future threads, I also find guys that wear their pants around their knees disgusting, I find people that don't bathe disgusting, I find 13 year old girls that dress like hookers disgusting, and I find excessive (note, I said excessive) facial piercing disgusting. Notice none of those things have anything with a person's weight or looks - but rather how they present themselves. It is the presentation that is disgusting - not the person's physical condition...

I BF all 3 of my children, 2 of them to almost 2yrs old both for actual reasons.I never put a blanket on my babies but no one ever knew I was nursing unless they tried getting the babies attention then I would politely let them know they were nursing. On the subject of other children and teens seeing someone else nurse... I always answered those kids questions and pointed out that cats and dogs nurse kittens and puppies the same way. Easy peasy

I too have lived in Europe and most women go topless on the beach.
People change on the beach. You get to see everything.
It is a nonissue.
I have also been to Hippie Hollow in Austin on Lake Travis and it is a nude beach.
I was the one feeling out of place for wearing clothes.
women who wear clothes that are too small or tight are following trends and are trying to be fashionable.
Most really have no idea that we are not seeing the clothes or how stylish they are but how much excess flesh is shown. Its called denial Shalom

I breastfed both my boys in public. Unless you are just searching for the boob, no one notices. I always found somewhere too nurse and not be obvious.

My pony's dam had a copius milk supply - I had considered weaning the baby like some folks do at a certain age, but being that I've had a copious milk supply myself when my babies were born, I had first hand experience on what it was like to try to wean babies. So I didn't interfere - My babies weaned themselves, and my pony weaned her baby on her moobs here!
