Bikini's for little girls?

I for one an pretty laid back but I don't see any reason a girl that's 7 or 11 should be in a bikini. No reason. Sure they're super cute but I'm hoping my daughter would rather do cannon balls than look cute.
Especially in public areas. I just feel there are too many pervs for her to be in a bikini. It's too soon and she will just have to deal.
How do you all feel about kids in bikinis?

It's one thing if we are in our private yard or pool but with friends over or anyone else I just think no way.
