When I was a young believer, I didn't think deeply about this issue. In fact, I was quite content to wear my bikini anywhere in public, proud that it wasn't as immodest as some other bikinis out there were (interesting thinking). It wasn't later that I realized that I shouldn't compare myself to the world, but to the WORD.
I'm not trying to be legalistic-- but hear me out.
Since then I have changed my thinking quite a bit... and I hope that my blog readers will take a few minutes to read this very well written and biblical article.
And if you have a few extra moments, listen to this young Christian woman talk about the history of the bikini. She has her own line of adorable swimwear too!
