Nothing says “mom” like pushing a stroller in your bikini, right?

Wrong.

At least, according to commenters on a stroller company’s Instagram page.

High-end stroller retailer Bugaboo was mocked by moms everywhere when they posted this picture over the weekend:

“Ahh yes I always go running in my bikini ... Not! #solame,” one commenter said.

“This is an awful post,” another commenter said. “You should be supporting new mums not portraying unrealistic body images.”

The picture of Dutch model Ymre Stiekema pushing her 2-year-old was apparently for a Vogue Netherlands photo shoot (no surprise there).

Stiekema was photographed pushing the “Bugaboo Runner,” an $815 stroller “designed specifically for active parents who don’t want to compromise,” according to the Bugaboo website.

“So thaaaat's what I have been doing wrong.....I need to jog with my baby in a Bugaboo to get my beach body back,” another commenter said.

Other moms applauded Stiekema for being in terrific shape, but the overwhelming sentiment from commenters: Who runs like that?

I can’t say we disagree.
