is showing your abs not modest????

hi, i am a 14 year old girl who really doesn't struggle with not wearing bikinis. My friends strictly know that i hate them and it's is like you said wearing you underwear in front of complete strangers. Lately i have been questioning them because i have a really great stomach that i work on every night. Why you ask, i am a dancer and i need a strong core. So i have been doing research on what would God think about them and what guys think when they see girls in them. Some of those responses were very disturbing. then again, everything you wear guys will think something about.

i am still against them, but my question is what is the bad part of them? the butt area? chest? or stomach? of all the research i have done is like "more coverage up top" or "covering more of your butt" but what about the stomach, is that the bad???

important to stay covered
by: cassandra

i think its important to keep your stomach covered as well...thats just my opinion...thats what i believe..i think that the more thats covered, the less guys will think of you in a sexually way.

I have to say that my stomach is the area that I protect the most. I know that sounds silly, but the butt and breasts are just natural to cover up. I don't even think about it. There are so many clothes out there designed to show your stomach, and personally I can't stand the thought of others seeing my belly. The navel is for some reason very attractive to guys. I don't know why, but it is. It also is so much easier to picture girls naked when you know what their belly looks like. It gives guys more to go on. Showing an inch is almost worse then showing the whole thing, because it peaks curiosity. Therefore when I buy clothes and they shrink just a little to not cover my stomach I give them to someone shorter, or wear something under them that is longer. Your belly is so important. It tells so much about your shape, body build, and so much more. Pray about the situation and let God lead you. His opinion is obviously more important then mine.

thank you for the two comments. they really helped. i especially understand the one about how the stomach shows off your shape and body biuld (etc) but i guess it's always good to keep the guys wondering haha but i will definitely take those comments in and tell them to my friends who have no idea what they get themselves into. And i will pray about it but i can promise that there is no way i will be wearing one any time soon haha so thanks again :)

Belly Button
by: Mirand -14

If guys didn't think the girls bellies were hott or sexy girls wouldn't get belly pierecings. I also agree that guys can picture you more easily naked if they see your belly.I put a great wbsite at the bottom of the page that has REALLY cute swimsuits that are stilll modest. It's a design your own swimsuit kinda deal and they have a bunch of options! Good luck and keep praying. :)

i think if your not sure then that should be an indication that it's a bad idea

we should should be focused on doing what God says (like matt 28:16-20) if even you cause one guy to stumble, then you were working against God.

if you not sure, i would suggest not doing to
