Swimming into summer


I'm planning to put in some serious beach time! I've been stressed from the packing and everything else in my headspace. When you live near the beach; why not? Too bad I can't surf on my beach, LOL! Plus, I'm trying to take a tiny vacation while my son is off to camp. Where am I planning to go? Another beach town, Atlantic City. So, I've been checking out modest swim wear.

I found 4 different modest swimwear lines. Many brands are available in plus sizes. One brand is even available in Maternity sizing.



Aqua Modesta
Pros: goes up to 3X, also available in maternity style

Cons: a bit pricey, some may feel uncomfortable with the bold prints





Simple Elegance
also in solid turquoise, and silver grey, $76 Aqua Modesta



Fantastic
Print: Water Swirl (shown), Morocco Blue, Batique Floral
Solids: black, torquoise, and brown, $65, Aqua Modesta


Princess Modest Swimwear
Pros: if you are in classic or simple sporty styles then this brand is for you. Two piece outfits, sizing goes up to 3X

Cons: looks a bit boxy, very $$$ unless you catch a sale, not too many color/style options

Blue/Purple Kinneret (shown,)
other styles: Yarden, Maayan, $60, Princess Modest Swimwear


Sea Secret
Pros: stunning, various styles to fit many peoples tastes, many styles include a matching swim hat, styles available for girls, a bargain for UK ladies!

Cons: super expensive, priced in euros (not good for US/Candian folks,) only runs up to 2X!


Pacific
available colors: turquoise (shown) green, pink, and gold,
80€ (approx. $113 USD,) Sea Secret

My internal temperature is really wacky. I get super hot really fast and layering on the beach will get me heat stroke :(

I bought a short sleeve rash guard that comes to my elbows and I wear my exer-skirt......the only problem with is that the exer-skirt does not dry as quickly as the rash guard, so bringing an extra skirt to go home in would probably be a good idea. I wear a regular bathing suit underneath it anyways....

Where do you get your rash guard from. Most of the time I find rash guards in the boys department. Then again, I'm shopping for camp.

My regular bathing suit (Lands' End) is ten years old... it looks brand new but it's too big for me now :(

Swimming is one of those things that I'm having an issue with. My solution so far has just been, don't mix-swim, then I have a nice one-piece that covers the cleavage(!! shocking!). Although, sometime in the next 2 weeks I'll be supervising a bunch of kids at a waterpark, so I dunno what to do for that one...Probably going to check out rashguards and wear a skirt, like dracoreina says :)

When I lived in NJ some of the Y had women-only swimming but the hours sucked. I decided that my only solution was to get a modest swimsuit that will dry quickly w/o me resorting to wearing heavy layers.

the princess ones are on sale - 30 for black, 45 for peach and 60 for blue.

So far I'm not happy with this company because I ordered and PAID for a certain colour/style and after I'm told that it will be shipped in the morning, I receive an email saying that the item I ordered is sold out. Grrrrrr.

not good
It's bad enough that I'm not trilled with their styles/color options but wacky sales practices?! Boo hiss!

Another option
You missed another modest swimsuit:

I have this one and really like it. It is actually comfortable to swim in, and dries nicely.

Also a bit expensive, but up to size 3X as well...

Now, if I can only find better exercise clothes....
