    We has bare ankle there!




    Hopefully we don't have to resort to the "burquini" as seen in some Muslim countries

    Why would we wear tortellinis?

    I started wearing swimsuit long tangs with thick straps high necks and short swim skirt's just enough to cover the top of my hip/thigh. I also have some 50's style bottoms to fit with a tank. As far as dress goes I don't wear anything revealing low cut at least not without a scarf or cover. All my skirts and dresses are just above the knee or lower and my shorts fit loose have 3 inches above the knee 4 or 5 at the beach or lake but I genuinely like loose long dresses and Capri pants plus there is the coverage factor. No need for anyone but hubby to see more

    My mom suggested using the sports bras and hot shorts made out of the dry fit fabric the other day. Certainly something I'll keep in mind for my next Six Flags adventure. I always have to wear a swimsuit under my clothes because I ride the Aquaman.

    The Bible is silent on what kind of clothing to wear for Christians. Jesus probably wore a cloak and possibly a commoner's toga. David danced in his skivvies in public on one occasion, Adam and Eve wore fig leaves, etc... It's just not a legalistic thing.

    Not everything has to be ruled by 'Thou shalt' and 'Thou shalt not'. And the absence of explicit rules doesn't mean anything goes.

    Let the virtues be your guide: prudence, temperance, charity.

    Respect cultural mores, too. Scott Nash points out in giving some background to Corinthians that in that culture, a women whose head was uncovered was advertising herself as a prostitute, thus Paul's admonition to women to cover their heads.

    What a convenient negation of the text for our time.

    Paul appeals to φύσις there in 1 Corinthians, just as he refers to φύσις when he condemns homosexuality in Romans.
