Confession: I have a love/hate relationship with my swimsuit. I love it because it means that it’s finally warm! It means fun times with friends and family at the pool. But I hate it because it also means that I’ve got to somehow find a modest swimsuit for my six-foot-tall, imperfect body. Not an easy feat. But this year, the modest swimsuits are everywhere! From Walmart to Lane Bryant, and from Downeast Basics to Target, there is modest swimwear for all body and wallet sizes.
But here is our only disclaimer: all bodies are different. What may be modest on one woman may not be modest on another. We know that some people don’t even like to wear swimsuits to the beach. To each her own! Wear what makes you feel modest and comfortable! But I’m just so glad to have found some swimsuits that won’t plunge down my neckline or show off any midriff. And that won’t wipe out my bank account!
