Woman asked to leave popular beach over 'tiny' bikini

A woman has shared her shock after she was asked to 'leave' a popular beach in Hawaii because of the bikini she was wearing.

Taking to TikTok to share the confrontation, the US woman Savannah Sims revealed the incident happened after she had been sunbathing at a popular spot "right off the road" on the Big Island of Hawaii.

That was when a family got out of their car and started setting up close to her, and she heared the mother say to her partner "I can't have that" and "that's not okay with me".

"I ask if there is an issue and she says she doesn't want to be seeing my butt and my lady parts," Savannah said.


She goes on to show her followers the exact bikini she was wearing, an emerald green number that is definitely much less on the 'tiny' side, compared to some of what today's bikini trends seem to be.

"Pretty freakin' normal right?" she said.

"I asked her what she wanted me to cover, and she had her kids so was trying to be respectful. But she just said she wanted me to leave. I was in her way."

In a second video about the incident, Savannah went on to add the woman who had told her off because she didn't want to "see her body", was in fact herself wearing a revealing thong bikini.

"Which is totally fine because I wear them all the time," she said. "But to call me out and then take off your skirt and be rocking a g-string - either she is a hypocrite or it wasn't about what I was wearing."

Savannah received plenty of support from her followers, with many agreeing the woman was out of line.

"I would have stayed... and twerked," one person quipped.

"You should have stayed because they have no right to control who is on the beach," another wrote.

"That is NOT the Aloha spirit we were raised with," a fellow Hawaii local commented.

Others also agreed with her point that it possibly wasn't really about the bikini.

"Sounds like she's insecure. That's her problem, not yours," was one comment.

While another said: "She probably caught her boyfriend checking you out."

But there were a few who agreed with the mother, believing Savannah's bikini was "too tiny" and her "butt wasn't covered".

“I can only imagine if you are in certain angles it would show other things too,” one person commented.

It comes after a similar incident earlier this year, when Vegan fitness influencer and Adelaide woman Natasha Maree shared a video on TikTok of the awkward moment a 'Karen' called out her G-string bikini.
