Beach Vacation Reveals Woman’s Post-Pregnancy Body Shame. Her Sister Doesn’t Seem to Care. But Who’s Really in the Wrong?

Written By Jack Bolton

Not feeling comfortable showing her postpartum figure, a woman turned to her sister for support during a beach vacay. She asked her to ditch the bikini for something less revealing. But to her surprise, she refused…A tear-jerking argument followed that affected the whole family. But who’s at fault? Here’s the full story, as shared on Reddit:

They Went On Vacation

The Original Poster (OP) starts her tale by explaining that she recently went on vacation with her parents, her sister and her family, and her husband and child. The family was staying near the sea, so they decided to visit a beach club…

According to OP, her sister, who recently had a baby, and her husband aren’t “feeling the best about her postpartum body” at the moment. Her sister didn’t want it to be an issue at the beach, so she asked OP a favor…

In an effort to stop the topic from coming up at the beach, OP’s sister asked her not to wear a bikini. However, while it may not seem like a big ask, it wasn’t something OP wasn’t willing to do…

OP Was Sympathetic But Declined

OP understood how her sister felt and told her she was sorry but wanted to wear a bikini. After all, she didn’t want to sit under an umbrella all day feeling hot; she wanted to swim and enjoy herself. Besides, she couldn’t understand why it would make a difference…

From OP’s perspective, she didn’t understand why showing a little skin at the beach would make any difference. After all, “tons of women would be in bikinis.” As a result, she stuck to her guns and wore hers, too. Unfortunately, her sister wasn’t happy about it…

OP tells readers her sister ended up being “a wreck all day.” She even refused to go to the beach with the family the next day. OP doesn’t think she did anything wrong, but her parents disagree…

It Caused a Family Rift

OP ends by telling Reddit how her family reacted to the situation. Apparently, her parents called her an “a******” for not doing what her sister asked. They believe she should just have covered up in something she could go swimming in. They then went even further, telling OP she’d “ruin the trip” if she kept wearing a bikini against her sister’s wishes.

What’s Reddit’s Take?

OP posted her story on Reddit because she wanted to know if she was in the wrong. So, what did Reddit think? Was her reasoning justified? Would other people have done the same? Or should OP have been more understanding?

Reddit Was On Her Side

People on Reddit were very much on OP’s side. One user wrote, “You’re not the a****** for wearing a bikini.” And another simply commented, “We. Don’t. Police. Women’s. Bodies.”

Her Sister Isn’t In The Wrong Either

However, just because OP was innocent doesn’t mean her sister was guilty. In fact, Reddit showed support for her, too. Some top comments reassured OP that she wasn’t at fault before also saying things like, “Neither is your sister.” Instead, the Reddit community pointed the blame at someone else…

The Sister’s Husband Is the Problem

Most Redditors directed their ire at OP’s brother-in-law. One top comment read: “Her husband doesn’t feel good about her postpartum body?? I think I’ve found the root of her insecurities.” Another reader said, “I think the solution is to leave Adam in the room so that your sister can enjoy the beach with your family without having her husband judge her.”

Some Redditors even described the behavior of OP’s brother-in-law as a red flag. One wrote: “Nobody will lose Adam at the beach” because he’ll be “waving that giant red flag.”
