I love finding new modest swimwear companies who intentionally design swimwear with modesty in mind! I got to be in this amazing editorial shoot for Utah Fashion Insider, a brand new Utah fashion magazine, that features 4 amazing modest swimwear designers: Kortni Jeane, Rad Swim, Raising Wild, Janalee Walton, and Buzz Swimwear!
I think that just because we want to swim (or lets be real, lay by the pool) is no excuse to show off every possible inch of our skin. I’m a conservative girl with a conservative style and that translates to pool days as well. I want to stay reasonably covered, even while swimming, so as to respect myself, my body, and others around me who didn’t ask to see all of me on their trip to the beach. Now, you may be thinking that there isn’t much of a difference between a swimsuit that covers more vs. covers less, and you may be right in terms of actual fabric… but it does seem make a huge difference in how you present yourself and how you come across to others. A one piece or a tankini may not cover drastically more than a bikini, but just that little difference makes it so at least you’re wearing more than basic underwear in public.
I wear a modest swimsuit when I’m swimming/boating with family, friends, and others. I wear a bikini when I’m on vacation with the hubs. I basically follow the same rules I apply in all other situations. Outfits of any kind that resemble lingerie are reserved for the Mr. Its a rule I’ve set for myself and I think he appreciates it too.
So as a fan of modest swimwear, I was so excited to be a part of this shoot with 3 of Utah bloggers and talented team who put all of this together for Utah Fashion Insider magazine!
