    Default Modest swimwear

    I found this amusing. No half naked bodies, no lusting, no impurity of thoughts, I guess. "Swimwear that highlights the face, rather than the body". Certainly!

    As if that wasn't enough to cover your body when swimming: "Next season we will once again offer a Slimming Swimmer suit that extends to the midarm (between the elbow and the wrist) and covers down to the lower leg (between the knee and the ankle)."

    I went to Dubai last year where there's a magnificent water/fun park and saw lots of young women wearing FULL LENGTH BURKAS in the water. Seriously.

    I always though Dubai was supposed to be one of the more...modern- thinking...places in the Middle East. Guess not!

    These remind me of the swimming costumes of the 1900s.

    Martino, fess up. You found the link to those polyester potato sack on the Dugger's website didn't you? Apparently that's the only swimwear sanctioned by huge fundie families.

    I tell you what, those Mennonite may be fundies but they certainly enjoy a drink!! There was a Mennonite community near to where I used to live in the UK and the women would go to the local supermarket on a Saturday and load up a dozen shopping trolleys (carts) FULL of food and at least a couple more full of booze and it wasn't just wine or beer - they bought cases of whiskey too.

    Mennonites are awesome and I number some of them here among my closest friends. They are much more fun than any fundie. Had a Mennonite neighbor who was my prayer partner for many years. We've had a rollocking time and you're right about the drinking. They are not againt the odd drink.

    Sad to say I know about the Lydia of Purple site because I've ordered a few items, like a custom made slip for a special outfit I have and a bedjacket before one of my hospital stays. I'm always freezing in the hospital and those blankets are too damn thin.

    You can actually see that at a beach in a park near where I live. The contrast between that and the young women in the string bikinis is quite startling. It must weigh a ton when wet.

    Yeah, I did.

    But why there is no modest swimwear for men? Is it okay for them to be half naked then? Maybe they think women don't get any impure thoughts from seeing men...

    Haha that's hysterical, that swimwear is awful! Could you imagine how self conscious young girls would feel wearing that on the beach with their friends.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on
