An Orthodox Dress Code

by L Miller

I have always been told that modesty is flexible depending on the weather, venue, local culture, and activity you are doing. I couldn't disagree more. Just because it's hot outside doesn't mean that you cant wear a maxi skirt and a shirt with flow-y sleeves; even headscarves can be comfy in the heat. If you take the time to research what fabrics work best in different weather types (what breathes better, whats thinner and/or thicker), you can feel just fine. I mean I'm currently in Miami, in August, and I am not complaining more than anyone else.

No one can make excuses for bikinis and or any "normal" women's or girl's swimsuit. Just because they cover your "personal areas" doesn't mean they are actually covering anything. It's the same thing as a bra and underwear. Besides, how can anyone be comfortable swimming in one of those things?

Dressing the way I do has drawn away most unwanted attention. Yes, I understand that not all men are pigs and have only one thing on their minds, but come on, I'd much rather be called beautiful than sexy. What I found works best for me is a surf-shirt or a stretchy work-out shirt with sleeves and a pair of long board shorts. One thing I'd like to try in a pair of those calf-length or ankle-length beach volleyball legging pants. They feel, look, and stretch like swimsuit material so why not give it a try. They may be a little tighter but it helps reduce drag in the water so they work for both wading and swimming.

Hope this helps!
