I’m trying to figure out if this would be modest to wear… my family is planning a trip to the beach, and for the past couple days I’ve been trying to find a new bathing suit. My old one from before I became Catholic, is not modest I’m afraid. Well I ended up buying the most modest thing I could find in my budget, which is a “tankini”… It’s not tight… and I will wear it with shorts and I sewed up the top of it because it was a bit too low cut. Is a “tankini” with shorts appropriate for swimming at the beach? (the shorts aren’t extremely short). I should also say, there won’t be many people at the beach… and while I’m not swimming, I’ll be wearing a long dress, and when I’ll get out of the water I’ll wrap myself in a big beach towel. .
I’d appreciate any thoughts. I just feel weird wearing this because I always cover my shoulders and knees. I usually wear long skirts. But I don’t know how to do this for swimming, because I don’t have anything appropriate!
