Modest Swimsuit Pictures

Thanks to Mary for sharing this link. She says her friend has been sewing them with great results from patterns and fabric she bought at the site. She also has a fun post with style questions up today.

Now, I know what some of you are probably thinking, so I challenge you: Look at at least 3 or 4 pictures before you totally turn your nose up. There was one of a little girl that was absolutely darling and would be very usable.

And a word to you very traditional types: some of you are at risk for looking immodest next summer. If you think, like I did 5 years ago, that a one-piece suit with moderately high-cut legs is basic swimwear, you could be showing over a FOOT more skin just in the thigh area than the modest teens that I was in the water with a month ago!

My advice: cover your thighs. Completely.

I guess they're okay - they're better, at least than most of the "modest" swimsuits I've seen. And I would like them on a little girl.
I wear a skirted 1950s affair which looked so kicky on Veronica Lake and so very, very dowdy on me... sigh.

I cant stand them. LOL... and Im all for modesty. Maybe a one peice with a board short, or skirt? I dont like how they have long biker shorts. its just ugly.

But I do hope to see others either wearing these, or getting crafty and creative and finding other alternatives.

Oh yes, a one piece with (knee-length) board shorts. Perhaps you & I are not as different as all that.:)

I'm all for board shorts as well. They seem more modern to me than a suit with a skirt, and I can't imagine those long skirts being easy to swim in...

I don't cover up for religious reasons though, I just prefer not to have my backside hanging out where everyone can see it!
