Bikinis: Is Less Really More?

In this intriguing video, Jessica Rey explains the history of swimsuits and then explores what kind of power bikinis give girls. (Is this the kind of power you really want?) 

Jessica Rey shares how she asked herself the question we all ask at one time or another, Does modesty mean I have to be frumpy and dumpy? (No!)

Hear how Jessica took matters into her own hands and designed her own swimsuit with Audrey Hepburn as her inspiration.

I love what Jessica says in this video, "Modesty isn’t about hiding ourselves; it’s about revealing our dignity." The dignity we have as image-bearers of God (Gen. 1:27).

Who says it has to be itsy-bitsy? Paul says in 1 Timothy 2:8–10,

I desire then that . . . women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works.

So how about it? How will you showcase your beauty this summer?
