With the g-string bikini trend on the rise, an Australian water park has had to issue a warning to people about what swimwear they can and cannot wear to the park.
Adventure World in Perth took to Facebook on Thursday to inform their followers of the new dress code.
“Adventure World is a family friendly park, please choose appropriate swimwear when visiting,” the water park wrote.

It was accompanied by a graphic, which shows the ‘accepted’ and ‘not accepted’ types of swimwear.
The post quickly went viral, attracting thousands of mixed reactions from people on social media.
“Great decision! Absolutely right. FAMILY Park. I for one don’t want people in g strings flaunting their assets in front of my kids,” one person wrote.
“It’s just a butt. God forbid children know that all humans have bottoms,” commented another.
Adventure World responded with an update to everyone’s comments, writing that they felt the dress standards were appropriate.
“Clearly this is a topic that has prompted a significant amount of discussion,” the park wrote.
“Let’s not confuse the issue. This update is about dress standards and dress standards only. It is not gender specific.”
“We keep informed of industry trends and whilst this was not a decision taken lightly, it is in line with other parks nationwide.”
“To those who have taken offence, we apologise. We are not the first park in Australia to update their dress standards on this subject, nor are we the only venue in WA that has addressed the matter with a similar policy. As a family friendly venue, we feel it is appropriate.”
