    Oh, I thought it was a top? It does give me the impression that it was just slipped on, not an actual outfit and given the summer bay context probably not inappropriate for the beachy scene. I respect people's right to wear what they like, I wouldn't dress like that because I love a big flouncy skirt and is be conscious of my privacy popping out. But I don't think any less of someone who dresses that way, nor do I think her body shape should come into it. I'm no less enthusiastic to accidentally see her vagina than I would be a more voluptuous one.

    I personally don't see the issue with what anyone wears. Wouldn't bother me if people walked around naked...

    I wouldn't be comfortable wearing something that short, but if someone else is then it has no effect whatsoever on me.

    I think it shows more about them than what short clothes says about the person wearing them

    Considering she has bathers on underneath I don't see the big deal. She also has the body to wear it so good on her. I quite comfortably wear similar style but slightly longer dress over bathers too when I have been swimming.

    She's not wearing it as a dress, it's a cover up and I don't see the big deal.

    I'm just confused why the op thought this pic reminded her of the pron thread?

    As for the outfit, I haven't seen h&a for awhile, but as others have said,beach cover up = ok.

    The home and away I remember from when I did watch it = totally fine. I see any judgment on clothes I make is usually on context of where its worn or the activity that is being depicted, therefore in this situation, non issue

    Because the pron thread talks about banning online porn on the off chance that an insufficiently supervised kid stumbles accross it.

    Yet, images of scantily clad people (that remind me of prostitutes/porn stars) are freely available on TV.
    - I think the motives of the producers are somewhat similar. They are aiming to entice viewers (mainly male) into getting their rocks off. I am convinced that the hiring of young fit looking actors and then scantily dressing them is a calculated move. Otherwise there would be more fat ugly? young people on Home and Away, neighbors etc.

    I'm a very respectable person, and sometimes I'd be caught wearing short shorts and short skirts/dresses. Yes, there is a time and place, but it honestly doesn't make a person any less of a person. I'm just really comfortable with my body, and I have every right to be, it's not hurting anybody.
    You obviously haven't been around long enough to know that suggesting MKF is anything like that is beyond absurd!

    I also want to just protest the "she can get away with it," and "she has the body for it," rubbish.

    You know who has the body to wear something like that? Anyone who has the shoulders to hold up the straps. That's it. Being thin, young and toned grants you no more rights than a fatter older person has.

    The whole idea that being young and thin makes it okay to do things you'd protest a fat person doing is just vile IMO.

    I am actually quite perplexed by this.

    We walk down the street and are confronted everyday with people showing varying levels of flesh. However, I've never linked that boys may be "getting their rocks off" by seeing people in scantily clad clothes on the street. I think there really is no comparison between pron and seeing scantily clad people.

    If you find scantily clad people (eg. the abundance of females that go around in bikinis on H&A) remind you of prostitutes and pron stars, then I'm truly perplexed. I spend a lot of time on the beach, so I guess that's why it's never even crossed my mind that scantily clad people must = prostitutes and pron stars.

    H&A is set in a seaside town, they are forever going from the beach to the diner etc. How else are the producers supposed to dress the actors.

    I understand the idea of using actors who are "beautiful" but I see it more about enticing people to watch based upon seeing beauty, rather than the way that some are scantily clad.

    For instance, Neighbours is aimed at a similar demographic - do they dress the actors in a similar way to H&A? As far as I know - there are less bather scenes (including boys in boardshorts, but shirtless, and bikinis), but otherwise the clothes the teens wear are similar. So, is the idea of the kids wearing less clothes about attracting young boys to "get their rocks off"? I think not. A big part of these types of shows is to get fashions out there through product placement.
