WholesomeWear SWIMWEAR

Woooow. Ok, anybody that reads this blog on the regular, or even occasionally knows that I pretty much always speak my mind on style trends.. good or bad, I'm gonna tell it. But see, this right here? This right here is too much for me.

WholesomeWear is a modest line of clothing for "wherever". Our waterwear is the first to be introduced because the need for modesty in swimwear is greatest and the supply is almost non-existent. Swimwear that "highlights the face, rather than the body" includes an undergarment with bright colors at the neck and shoulders to draw the eye to the face. The spandex undergarment fits like a bodysuit, while the loose fitting Taslan outer garment limits cling and adds modesty and style. A single zipper unites both garments for swimming ease. WholesomeWear offers many color combinations to our three styles of swimwear.

Ok, who in the Sam's hell is going to buy that swim wear? I agree me need more modest lines but damn. Lets not get carried away here. We don't want to burn up. Adding a little skirt attachment with a bodysuit like top would be fine but not pants and a full length dress. Give me a freaking break.

What in the mormon, nation of islam swimming travesty is this mess?! I vote hell, and no!

i mean i don't want to rag on other people's beliefs but this is a just weird. especially the "highlights the face" part. that's not the first thing i notice when looking these pictures! and if you weren't concerned about your body then why would you need a "slimming" version (if you can even call it that!)

Creepy. Women's bodies don't need to be hidden from sight. This just reinforces that notion that there's something dirty about us. F*** that.

But the funny thing is, I saw their website years ago, and the photos were exactly the same. Saves on designers, I guess.

Introducing....new swimwear for Amish kids!

I can't stop laughing at these comments!

Nicky... I totally agree. I think this right here would bring more attention on a beach than a naked person!
And do they have a disclaimer for possibly causing drowning? One second you're swimming, and the next thing you know, you've got a skirt over your head and you can't breathe!!!

I agree, this is a bit on the ridiculous side. It's right up there with racing or playing basketball at a church picnic in a skirt. Trust, some religious people are rejoicing across the nation.

Okay, so basically you wear this if you want to commit suicide by drowning yourself?

Because that's the only thing that could come from wearing that much fabric in the water.

Hilights the face? Right, like the broad in the middle wants to highlight the fact that she looks like john travolta.

Chanel said...

Lol! Wow.. chick in the middle DOES kinda look like John Travolta.

I guess this is the Verace, Fendi, Gucci, Valentino, and Old Navy designs for the Amish, Mormon, and Muslims.

ish, just go by some jeans and a t shirt at WalMart and drown, because it would be a lot cheaper than this hot a*# mess. Better yet, just stay at home if you're modest.

ShayShay said...

Why don't they put the money they would have spent on those hideous nylon nightgowns and chip in for the All Holiness Keepin Our Women IN Check Sanctified Church's Swimming Pool fund?

Tamron Lohan said...

stormchyald@yahoo.com beat me to it! i totally thought that was some outtake or something of him in Hairspray!!!!!

Sarah P ;-) said...

I can't stop laughing at stormychyald@yahoo.com and shayshay!

This is TOO funny!!!!

Fashion Critic said...

really? swimwear?

FemmeNoire said...

I don't see anything wrong with it, some people don't like to show a lot of skin at the beach for religious or other reasons. I wouldn't wear it myself but I wouldn't bat an eye if I saw someone else wearing one.

This is beyond modesty. Hilarious. Nurses uniforms are more trendy than this!

There's a reason sarongs, cover-ups and one-pieces were invented. No one's forcing you to wear a swimsuit anyways.

I know some people don't want to draw attention to their bodies, but doesn't this defeat the purpose? It will draw attention if you're wearing as a swimsuit and attempting to swim despite the drag the skirts will create. If it's just for walking around on the beach, it's fine, like a cover up. But as a swimsuit...you can't swim in it.

I have one. I love it! My daughter asked me to buy one for her. It isn't too hot, it doesn't drag me down, and it keeps me covered. Finally, I can go to the beach and not feel naked. :-D

I don't know. I'm on the fence about it, I guess. I was really pleased to read the line about, you know, drawing attention away from the body and to the person, but God made my body. I wonder if I would be drawn to use it for the wrong reasons. God gave me boobs and a round mid-section. I certainly ought not run around naked, but why should we hide from the very thing that He designed?

I have a 15 year old Amish cousin. We send letters and gifts back and forth on occasion. My mother bought her this suit a year or so ago. She said this is the best swimwear that has been available to her. She used to have to wear a big cotton dress and it was impossible to properly swim. There are many girls out their who are thoroughly ecstatic to be able to swim so freely.

Everything is not for everyone!
