Speedos/String Bikinis for Teens?

Jump to last reply

Hi, my teen-age twins (boy and girl, both aged 14) INSIST on wearing what I think are too-small bathing suits, the girl wants to wear a thong and the boy really wants to wear a speedo. Nothing wrong with it, but because they are both a bit "large" for their age I am concerned about the attention they will get on the beach in France. They both tell me "hey, mom, everyone does it overthere!"

What should I do? Should I put my foot down, or should I let them both be stared at?
