    So this summer my boyfriends VERY generous parents are taking me with them for their two week holiday to Florida in the summer. I'm really excited but also worried about how best to act around them/what to wear around them that is appropriate but that I wont melt in. His parents are in their 40s-50s in this helps at all! Does anyone have any tips/experiences?

    It's Florida.. they won't expect you to wear a burka. Wear whatever you want.

    Chill, be yourself, go with the flow.

    I'd dress and act conservative, and then relax once you know what they're like on holiday.

    Remember that they're on holiday, they're going to be nice and relaxed, so you should probably be the same.

    Ask your boyfriend what they'll find normal but if I was invited to a holiday in 40 degree heat I'd be expecting to wear a bikini/swimsuit and then shorts/t shirt if we weren't at the pool/beach. The only thing I'd say not to do is wear swim wear which is abnormally revealing e.g. thong bikini bottoms.

    Lucky you! I'm very jealous!

    I don't think you should worry about it. They obviously like you enough to invite you to go away with them. Just wear what you normally wear and feel comfortable with when you're on a hot and sunny holiday. Obviously be respectful to them though. As someone said above, if they're very modest people and expecting you to be with them during the days and evenings, I'd probably avoid wearing really skimpy bikini bottoms and push up bras and the like in front of them but you can gauge how they are once you're there. Enjoy!
