Christian Singles Go To The Beach

What should wholesome men wear, pray tell?
Note: I found this fabulous website on Dave Barry's blog.

Culotte swimwear should be an oxymoron, shouldn't it? The bright colors are nice, though -- I will say that!

Oh,, it's hard to know what to say. On the one hand I don't want to be too critical of people trying to be modest are trying to SWIM after all.

What do men wear? Whatever they want, of course. Such is the double standard.

Or, feminist cynicism aside, let's be honest about what turns men on and what turns women on. It's not usually men running around with their shirts off (but we wouldn't complain). Which is precisely why they don't make Christian dating ads of topless men. There IS no male equivelant to Big Boobs.

Isn't there some happy middle ground between pimping out women or hiding them in burqas?

Pops never let us wear two-peice swimsuits and I think that was a high standard--even higher today than it was in the eighties. But it's going to be my standard. I'm biased, but I think this is pretty fair.

There might be an equivalent of big boobs, but it wouldn't be something to look at. It would be kind words, planning a romantic evening, sending a love letter, etc. That being said if there was something we could look at that could catch our fancy it might be an honest face.
I might wear a two piece (let's see how long it takes for these stretch marks to fade) if I was on vacation with my hubby or if it was a non-bikini two piece, but Jane is DEFINITELY not wearing a two piece.
In the interest of full disclosure she did wear a two piece when she was 7 months old. See picture #27 in her facebook album.

Actually, Ms. Friday, some of the modest-apparel sites do sell male equivalent gear (and some sell things that look a little easier to swim in for the fairer gender).

I've watched parents try to get their sons in a pool wearing a "Swim Shirt" (basically, a t-shirt made out of a mesh that allows freedom of movement while covering a healthy amount of skin) only to be told it wasn't allowed by pool regs. Not only a double standard, but one enforced by TPTB.
