City loosens rules to allow some topless swimmers at Seattle pools, beacheson November 21, 2012 @ 7:38 am (Updated: 1:25 pm - 11/21/12 )
The Seattle Parks Department has now published relaxed new rules that require pool supervisors to grant exceptions.
Jodi Jaecks forced the issue, saying swimsuit tops are uncomfortable because of her scars from a double mastectomy.
The new guidelines are posted online and will go up at beaches and pools. The rules prohibit swimsuits that expose female breasts or genitals and exclude other inappropriate clothing, such as thongs.
People who want a special accommodation are required to check with a staff member at the city pool or swimming beach.
