Topless ladies at beach/hotel pool area, common sight?

I hope no one will feel offended by this question. We're travelling with kids 10 and 12, which is kind of an awkward age. I'm afraid they'll feel embarrassed if there are topless girl around. Is it a common sight? Please reply.

Not common but it was how we were born. It should be your problem and not the people sunbathing.

I will be topless when sunbathing.

Not common in Turkey, most people respect it's a Muslim country,myself included. Unfortunately the odd woman I have seen topless would have looked a lot better wearing their tops.

I have two boys a similar age and they find it embarrassing too.

I'm hoping we don't see many this year.

In our 5 trips to Antalya and Belek have ( thankfully) not seen much of it. BUT when I go it is winter and an older client group.

I am afraid we have seen quite a few topless bathers even round the hotel pools !

Only in October there was a Russian lady with a lovely figure and her husband with two young children bathing topless at the heated outdoor pool ! There was an older lady, one of their parents I asumed who was more or less covered up each day ! The couples young son was running about with no bottoms on and this is not very nice to see!

This was at an high end hotel !

I prefer not to see this but the worse thing I have seen was a mature guy beach jogging in a thong ! Gross !

I have to say I have also seen many ladies topless around the pool and on the beach in 5* ultra all inclusive hotels in the warmer months in Belek.

I've also seen a few guys in thongs by the pool/beach I found that off putting but I've never seen one jogging, I don't think I would want to either.....lol

When I went on a tour of a 5* hotel a few weeks ago, I actually seen one man expose himself, trust me that definitely was not a pretty sight!

I will be there in April and have packed both my red and green mankini's this year.

Just as a treat for all the ladies. LOL

I did reply when you posted this before but I assume you didn't see the answer.

It is not so common to see women sunbathing in Turkey as it isn't really the thing to do in a Muslim country but you may see some. Most people I have seen have been quite discreet so hopefully you shouldn't have too much of a problem.
