CHRONICLE readers have reacted strongly to a note advising a Woodgate woman to cover up because they didn't "appreciate fat people wearing bikinis/short shorts".

More than 140 comments were made about the story on Facebook and most were supportive of the woman wearing whatever she wanted in her own yard and expressed disgust at the rudeness of the note writer.

A few people suggested she host a bikini party each weekend for full-figured folk in her garden while others suggested stepping things up a notch and watering the plants naked.

Others advised the author to mind their own business and keep their eyes in their yard.

Leann Massey said the writer should stop whingeing and complaining and "leave the poor woman alone - it's darn hot".

Another reader suggested the person "move mate to the middle east where they all wear burkas".

The writer threatened to report the woman if she didn't cover up which had readers asking who the person would complain to - the fashion police?

Another reader pointed out that they saw plenty of shirtless men with big bellies wearing short shorts mowing the lawn but asked who cares?

"Wear whatever you want" was her advice.

But not everyone was supportive of the woman, one male reader commented: "anyone of a large size probably should be considerate of others eyes".
