here's an idea--what about getting a tankini with a skirt on it, that way its modest and you don't have to worry about being so embarressed about wearing board shorts.

You dont have to dress up in board shorts and a T-shirt to go to the pool

Just because Shelly did that, doens't mean you have to. I choose to wear bikini bottoms and a tankini top. I know some girls in my school who wear tankinis that come to their belly buttons. I know judgement is harsh, but just try what I said.
I know that it was very hard for me when I dressed more modest while swimming, but whatever feels right you'll know it.

You could always just wear a one piece. That's what I do. Land's End always has some, because I know how hard it is to find a real one piece with all the bikinis gone wild (that sounds just weird...but, anyway). Thanks for reading!

Another Option

Hi!

Modest swimwear is not an easy transition, but there are fashionable items available to make it easier.

I suggest that you begin with a tankini top and a regular bikini/boyshort bottom (check out www.limericki.com to start). Just be sure that your parts are all tucked away - that's the whole idea.

My rule of thumb: If you are spending time thinking about a body part (ie. feeling insecure) during your time at the pool/beach, find a swimsuit that covers it up! There is no reason why you shouldn't be fully enjoying your time.

For example, I get self-concious about my bum and bikini line - so i wear a tankini top with a skirt bottom. Helps me enjoy my beach time much better.
