The photograph below has gone viral since it was posted on Facebook last week. Some people will say this is a story about body shaming, but we’re curious how the Tabooya audience will react after seeing this mom’s photo.
According to the post, new mom Lexi Sinclair was at the pool with her 4-month-old son when a stranger told her that a mom shouldn’t be wearing such a small bikini. Not that it was at all inappropriate in style and not that Lexi isn’t attractive, but because she’s in post-pregnant mom recovery and, well, post-pregnancy bodies need enough time to recover.
Lexi posted to Facebook the photo wearing the bikini that caused the encounter.
Is Lexi a beautiful mom? Absolutely. Does she have a few loose ends due to her pregnancy, of course! But does that mean she’s not allowed to wear a two-piece by the pool?
The real interesting part, however, is it wasn’t some schmoe dude telling Lexi to cover up. It was another woman in her 50’s that decided to give the new mom some fashion advice. Lexi, going against her instinct, says she just “smiled at the woman and said she was proud of her body.”
I’d hate for anyone to shame a woman, especially one as attractive as Lexi, to not ever wear a bikini because if that’s the case, we’ll eventually have zero women in bikinis to look at!
