Rachel Held Evans’s take on the Swimsuit discussion

Rachel Held Evans’s take on the Swimsuit discussion

So my advice for women looking for bathing suits this season is this: Don’t dress  for men; dress for yourself. It’s not your responsibility to please men with either your sex appeal or your modesty; each man is different, so it would be a fool’s errand anyway. Instead, prioritize strength, dignity and good deeds, and then dress accordingly. 

Find something that makes you comfortable. Find something that is ethically made. Find something that gives you the freedom to run with abandon into those incoming waves—hot sand tickling your feet, warm sun tingling your skin—and revel in this body and this world God gave you to enjoy.

Read the rest here.
