The Modest Swim Gear

You know how some people take a great idea and take it way too far? I present to you a case concerning modest clothing. Now I think we can agree, we need to be modest, and there have been some great strides to make our swimwear that way (Thank you to the makers of the tankini)

But, friends, there’s modesty and then there is… well, see for yourselves.

I could be wrong but this seems like a step backward, doesn’t is?

I worry about anyone swimming in these things. That just seems like too much fabric in the water; wouldn’t you just sink to the bottom of the pool? And how long does that thing take to dry? I would worry about hypothermia.

And speaking as a single man, if the girl I was dating came walking out, "pool side" in one of these numbers... definitely a deal breaker.

(Dedicated to Carol and Krystal for bring this fashion trend to my attention. I don't know if they sent this to me to make me laugh, or if they are actually sitting pool side wearing these as we speak. It's hard to say.)

Give me one of those any day...!!!

Just give me something I can use to forget my body and enjoy the swim and the sun at the same time!

It looks like swim wear for the Amish. Just sayin.

Thanks Rob. I'm hoping that enough people see these swimming dresses/suits that it does indeed become a trend. At this year's ward pool party, I don't want to be the only one sporting my newly sewn suit (yes, ladies, there are patterns!) After all:
"Unaffected modesty is
the sweetest charm of female excellence,
the richest gem in the diadem of her honor."
~Webster's Dictionary 1828
(Yes, I did pull that *timely* definition directly from one of the websites for the swimwear.)

so...once upon a time my roommate was complaining about how hard it was to find a modest swimming suit and i whipped out my iphone to share this post with her - it was both relevent to the topic and hilarious, so i couldn't go wrong!...until i realized the 'crazy' swimwear shared was just the kind of thing she'd been hunting for without success...oops...
