I received the following question from Caitlin:
Hi Rebekah, I had another question for you, and for other people who wish to share. What do you wear to swim in?
That's a great question, Caitlin, and I'm glad you asked it! :) I used to wear the regular 1-piece swimsuits, thinking that I was modest because I wasn't wearing the 2 pieces! However, after reading the above mentioned book, the Lord showed me, so clearly, the horrible error of my ways.
This past summer, my family was planning a vacation to Savannah, Geogia, and the beach there:Tybee Island. We were in need of modest swimming suits! We came across this website, and Mama decided to purchase one of their patterns instead of the modest swimwear they themselves sew, in order to see if she could make them herself. She succeeded beautifully, and the finished product can be seen here and here. I felt so blessed to be able to go to the beach and not feel self-conscious. I was able to go to the beach and have fun while being completely modest and glorifying God at the same time! It truly was a blessing, and I look forward to wearing this swimsuit in the future. :)
What about the rest of you ladies? What do you swim in in order to preserve your modesty?
Again, I want to offer a big thank you to all of you ladies who commented on the Biblical Guidelines about Clothing post.
