This is a different post...but one I'm very excited to share! :) Most of you probably have already found this site, but it's new to me. And since this is my blog, I get to be excited and "share" it with ya'll who know all about it! :)
I love the water, but I don't love the clothing options for being IN the water. There's the obvious modesty issue with pretty much every bathing suit out there. (You just don't see a modest bikini very often...) And then there's the option of swimming in your denim skirt... yep, full or straight, that one's just not gonna go well!
Timothy and I were talking about modest swimwear just a few days ago. And, one morning when he left at a very ungodly hour for work, I went to my trusty search engine, and here's what I found!
Drum roll please... :)
Check it out! Very cute, streamlined dresses made out of the same material as regular swimsuits with knee-length leggings underneath! Now, they are a little pricey...especially to think about my daughter needing a different size every year. But, after looking a little farther on the website, I found that they have made their patterns available! You can buy fabric on their site, but I'm looking on ebay. Ebay has a lot of the same quality nylon/lycra materials for MUCH cheaper! Hadlee already has hers picked out! :) Now if I can just talk my mom into making them - since I conveniently don't have a sewing machine. (And it wouldn't do me any good if I did!!)
Modesty (I believe) should not be something that our kids have to "suffer through". I want to show my daughter that you can be modest and participate in fun activities while wearing clothes in which you feel confident AND covered. ("confident and covered"...what a concept, huh? Very opposite of what our world says...)
P.S. When you check out the website, make sure you click the "Why Modesty?" tab and read the owner's message. I want to buy her stuff, just to support her stand! :)
