My two cents:
Clearly the OP's mother is out of line by dictating what an adult should and shouldn't wear and I would tell her so. However, if the OP is still planning to attend the reunion, I think it's only fair to explain the whole Mormon modesty thing to the girlfriend and let her decide if she feels comfortable wearing a bikini when she may be judged and looked down upon by the family. If I were in the situation, I would be embarrassed and uncomfortable wearing something that my boyfriend's family thinks is inappropriate just to make a statement. Sure, most Mormons have weird views on modesty, but sometimes you just have to be nice and play along.
