It is May, and summer is almost upon us! In summer, swimming pools and beach getaways are par for the course. Which means we need to begin purchasing, gulp…swimwear. Is this something that Christian ladies and girls need to even really consider? Should we just run to the store and purchase the cutest suit regardless of it’s fabric coverage?
Over the next few weeks I hope to examine these questions and share some resources about this topic with you. My goal isn’t to tell you what is “right and wrong,” because honestly, when it comes to modesty sometimes the area is grey. Hopefully you will decide to discern for yourself the proper swim attire while using the Word of God as your guide. Some questions and topics that will be covered over the next few weeks include:
- The History of Swimwear. Where were we then, and where are we now?
- Are We Letting Our Culture or the Word of God Dictate Our Convictions?
- Practical Ways to Remain Modest While Swimming and Links to Resources to Buying Modest Suits.
This man was measuring bathing suits in 1922. If the suits were too short, the women would be fined.
We’ve come a long way, haven’t we?
I pray that the Lord will be glorified through this series. Modesty is very important to Him. It is something that we must consider as Christian women. I’ve gone through a radical modesty transformation over the past three years, the heart change that the Lord has given me has truly been incredible. Sometimes going against the grain of society is tough! I praise God that His grace is always sufficient.
Please join me back here next week!
How about you? Do you search for modest swimwear, or do you believe that coverage doesn’t really matter?
