HydroChic Giveaway


Me (Ellie) showing off my HydroChic outfit
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. As we kick off the month of May, here's to hoping that all the cold weather is behind us. Do you have any vacation plans for spring or summer?

Finding modest bathing suits at the mall can be a challenge, but Hydrochic has you covered (both literally and figuratively!) We are excited to be raffling off two $50 HydroChic gift cards.

    1. I can believe that. Many people in Europe think bathing suits are totally unnecessary and the beaches are full of people in the buff.

    2. Anon @ 7:39 I am in the UK and have spent many holidays in many european countries. I don't know where you have been but most beaches have people in normal beachwear, swimsuits, bikinis, board shorts etc, I have never seen anyone 'in the buff'. While there are some nudist beaches they tend to be private and not near public areas. I suppose it depends on your definition of 'in the buff', I personally wouldn't go anywhere near a nudist beach, but normal beachwear does not offend me.

  50. I'm in my 60's and Christian women never in my memory had this "modesty" fetish when we went to pool parties or to the beach. They wore bathing suits that were comfortable and pretty much mainstream fashion. When did this "modest" thingy happen?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You're right.

      Delete
    2. Beats me. None of my Christian friends have ever complained about not being able to find a bathing suit that they considered appropriate to wear when swimming at the beach or pool. However it is nice that someone is covering the niche market for people who want this sort of attire.

      Delete
    3. I think different branches of Christians have always been on the modesty trail (since this past century, when small bathing suits, shorts, etc. became something women wore) more than others, just like today.

      Delete
    4. I've never heard an explanation of exactly what these "modest" Christians are afraid of if they show skin. It seems like these are the male's rules for the females. I don't see websites full of "modest" swimwear for men, or negative opinions about bare male chests. Are they saying women have to dress a certain way because men can't control themselves? Then that's the man's fault, not the woman's.

      Delete
    5. Yes, why is modesty all on the woman? And men are encouraged to show off their muscles??

      Delete
  51. I'm about an hour from the beach, so I'd wear it there! And the local pool of course :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. If I were 40 years younger, I'd go back to wearing a bikini in a heartbeat! (I say, if a man can't control his lustful thoughts, covering up won't stand in his way.) Now, I'd wear the "modest" swimwear only to shield the eyes of the public from my intricate network of spider veins and skin that's taken on the appearance of drooping crepe paper! Long live long sleeves and crop pants!

    1. Your daughter wants to wear this stuff and be an "example" to her friends? How brave of her. My kids always wanted to dress like the others in their peer group so they'd fit in and not be considered a "dork"

      Delete
    2. Your daughter will get slaughtered socially in this dress/swim suit unless you run in a very small circle. Don’t make Christianity too weird and different from normal society. Then we lose people! A normal modest one piece is plenty. How you behave in that suit matters more anyway!

      Delete
    3. Your daughter is very wise!!! Maybe she will start a trend. It would certainly be a wonderful environment to be able to go to the beach or pool without having to see too much skin! I wish more people would come up!

      Delete
    4. 1:20 -- Totally agree.

      Delete
    5. Why do people care what another person is wearing? It really should be how we treat each other, not whether someone covers up more than another person. Shunning someone because of what they wear is wrong and shows more about those who exclude than the person who is dresses differently.
      I hope your daughter's spirit shines this summer @3:47.

      Delete
    6. Christy: The basic underlying styles of bathing suits commonly worn by pre-teen girls has changed little in the last 40 years. It's highly unlikely your daughter will start a new fashion trend with her "modest" swim gear. My feeling is that she will be walking into a social minefield she's too young to handle

      Delete
    7. I thought Christians were MEANT to stand out from the world, not take the easy way out and blend in with the crowd because you are afraid of "social suicide".

      Sadly there are many pre-teen girls who dress in very immodest clothing, many don't know any better but does that mean a girl who WAS brought up with modesty standards gets a free pass if she abandons them for the sake of conformity?

      My parents did not teach me "go along with the crowd and avoid social suicide" but taught me to stick to my own principles.

      That being said, my own standards are quite different from the Duggars. I don't shop specifically for modest swimwear but I do buy high neck tops and either "swim skirts" or board shorts. I wear pants at times and I think for many activities they are more modest than a skirt would be.

      But if a friend or relative of mine wanted to wear the kind of swimwear featured here because that is her conviction, then I'd certainly support her in that.

      BTW modesty is not just about hiding one's body out of shame, or fear that others won't be tempted to lust over it. It is about treating yourself with respect, as a Godly treasure. And that applies to men too.

      Delete
    8. I think that some fall into the trap of performative modesty. There are ways to dress based on your personal convictions and blend into society. I think that the older Bates girls (Katie, Josie, Tori, Carlin, Erin, and Michael) do a particularly good job of remaining true to their dress standards.
      Dressing to purposely stick out is the opposite of modest.

      Delete
    9. You have to think about it from a kid's or a teen's perspective, where anyone who'd different is automatically "weird." Kids and teens don't analyze things the way adults do.

  72. Bathing suit? I honestly thought that was a summer dress to wear out to lunch or something. This is NOT a bathing suit at all IMO.
    I understand way too many bathing suits are skimpy, but this is unnecessarily over the top. Not flattering to go swimming at all.

    2. Michael Phelps wore the bodysuit to swim as fast as possible. He would swim in a speedo if it gave him a competitive edge.

      Delete
    3. Anon @ 9:54 Michael Phelps bodysuit is worn to improve speed by reducing drag in the water, it has been specially designed for this purpose, not for modesty, infact it is very form fitting! No one is going to win any swimming medals in one of these modest suits.

    4. The point is that a swim suit is whatever a person desires to wear while swimming. If you don't like a certain style, don't wear it.

    Modest swim attire that is stylish is hard to find. I am looking forward to trying something from Hydrochic.

  76. You are a beautiful woman. I’m not advocating a string bikini and I too believe you shouldn’t flash your body around too much. This suit seems excessive to me and yes, like a 1930s costume. A one-piece that isn’t overly low cut is plenty. Beyond that, we’re teetering on Muslim clothing choices. There’s a line closer to the mainstream that’s plenty modest! Let’s not get extreme!

    3. 8:20 and 10:32 -- Totally agree. There is freedom in Christ.

      Delete
    4. How is it copying the dress code of Muslims? They aren’t covered from head to toe. The Bible says in I Timothy 2:9 that women should wear modest apparel. It is a Biblical conmand not a Muslim rule.

      Delete
    5. A false religion?! Maybe they think the same of your religion...but are too polite to say it in public like that.

      Delete
    6. Traditional Christian dress codes promoted modesty before modernism took over. Myslim "modesty" is aimed at belittling and oppressing women. This has nothing to do with Muslims. It has to do with dignity, self respect, and most of all, honoring God.

      Delete
    7. Anon 3:44, I'm sure that a Muslim woman would also say she is dressing with dignity, self-respect, and to honor God. There are also many in society, including Christians, who believe that Christian modesty standards are legalistic, oppressive, and belittling to women. Just like Christian women, Muslim women dress in varying degrees of modesty.

      Delete
    8. @3:44 Huh? Have you talked to any Muslim ladies? All those I know ELECT to cover up because they do so for dignity, self-respect and to honour God. Their husbands would be happy if they took off the head scarf and did not wear the over dress. It draws too much attention to themselves. The Koran, like the Bible, teaches modesty in dress for both men and women.

      Muslim women, in the west, are less oppressed than some Evanglical Christians. I know several Muslim ladies who are thrilled that their daughters are in medical schools and in graduate schools, head scarf and all. And it is their choice, not their husbands and fathers. They only marry after they complete their educations.

      Please do not confuse culture,with religion. Do not confuse fundamentalism, with main stream adherents. Do not confuse power politics, with religion. Just like Christianity, there are different 'streams' of Islam.

      What is the difference with Muslim girls wearing the head scarf and Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar not allowing the daughters to wear pants and short sleeve tops and not cutting their hair?

      Answer...no difference

      As for Islam being a false religion, religion is not false or true. It is just religion. You may believe that your particular interpretation of Christainity is the right one but your belief does not make it true:-)

      Delete
    9. 9:04 Yes a false religion. We are Christians so to say Islam is a true religion would be saying our Christian religion is false. Muslims are saying more then our religion is false they are also killing us in a lot of places because of our faith.

      Delete
    10. 11:47 -- I have talked to EX-Muslim women here in the U.S. who are THRILLED to have found Jesus and converted to Christianity. John 14:6. Jesus is the ONLY way to God. All other ways are false.

      Delete
    11. 11:47 I think if someone wears a headscarf or doesn't or pants or only dresses and skirts is anything big, just that persons personal preference. But what you said about religion being neither false or true is I believe wrong. As a Christian we believe that the Bible is the infallible Word of God and is given by inspiration by God. We don't look at our faith as relative but as absolute. It is everything to us. It defines who we are, what we do and who we serve. Just wanted to point that out to you.

    1. What makes you think "Christian women now want to dress like they're a Muslim woman when they go swimming?" Surely you also know that Christians and Muslims are not monolithic groups and people of those faiths dress in a range of ways.

    2. Is there anything wrong with the way Muslim women dress? How about all women wear whatever swimsuit makes them feel comfortable?

  80. Some of those aren't very modest. I don't consider body-hugging leggings and bike shorts and bikini bottoms to be modest.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Then don't wear them! Modesty is in the eye of the beholder, clearly. The Duggars went from wearing frump dresses to skin-tight tee shirts and think they're modest.

      Delete
    2. I get the feeling that the company is catering to a wide variety of people with different modesty standards. Some of the "swimwear" does not even appear designed to allow for any actual swimming, but more for people who like water sports or just splashing around in shallow water.

      I really don't think there's any obligation for a Christian woman to buy a swimsuit (or a dress for that matter) that's specifically marketed as Modest. Yes, some swim suits such as what goes in the SI Swimsuit issue, are obviously designed to stir up lust. But not all swim suits are.

      I can also think of many places one can buy "rash guards", "board shorts", "swim dresses", etc. that are marketed more for their UV protection qualities, yet don't look that different than what Ellie is wearing, and are not nearly as costly. Especially if you get them on sale during the winter, as I usually do.

    ReplyDelete
  85. The mention of Muslim women really underscore how subjective the whole idea of modesty is. Most devout Muslim women, the kind who might wear "modest" swimwear similar to what is marketed as "modest" for Christians by this company, also would cover their heads, and many would marry total strangers chosen by their parents in arranged marriages, and wouldn't even hold hands with their fiances before marriage.

    The Duggars however not only don't cover their hair but actually take active steps to make it look better. They also wear heavy makeup. Something even some other Christians have critiqued them for. Same for the Bates.

    Just makes me very reluctant to condemn a woman (or man) for immodesty. There are SOME who dress deliberately in a provocative manner designed to stir up lust. But I think this is the vast minority, even among more "worldly" people.

      Delete
    3. The comment about many Muslim women marry total strangers is incorrect and a generalization. Marriage customs depend more on culture, not religion. I know several Hindu couples, who meet on the wedding day, with very happy marriages. I know Christians marriages that were arranged. I recently attended an Indian Islamic wedding. The young couple found each other. I know of another..The bride asked her parents to find her a groom. The parents arrange for her to meet prospective young men. She was encourage to get to know the young men. If she didn't want to marry any of the young men...no problem. It was her choice.

      I see no difference with Jim Bob having prospective sons in law to filling out a questionnaire.

      Delete
    4. 12:26 -- Honestly??? No difference between Hindus meeting on their wedding day and the Duggar kids courting after Jim Bob gives the thumbs up????????

      Delete
    5. Anon at 5:25PM, I don't think the Anon you replied to was comparing Duggar courtships with the kind of arranged marriage where spouses meet on the wedding day.

      But more with the kind of "arranged marriage" where parents act as matchmakers, and romance is de-emphasized, but they don't force their children to marry whoever is picked for them. There is usually a "courtship" period to determine if the couple would be compatible spouses, and if any deal breakers are found then there is no shame in not moving forward to engagement.

      However I'm not sure that the Duggars courting practices are actually the same as any kind of arranged marriage. After all the couples still claim to love each other and most seem to be quite infatuated with each other before marriage. It's not just that they find they can be good helpmates and co-parents, and eventually build a long lasting love AFTER they marry. Which most people consider ideal for arranged marriages.

      BTW I do know some people from both "East" and "South" Asia who have arranged marriages and most did NOT marry total strangers they met on their wedding days. Some are "arranged" only in name, where couples choose each other but follow traditional customs such as having people act as "match makers" or going through traditional betrothal ceremonies.

      And while such marriages do have lower divorce rates I'd be very cautious about saying they must therefore be "more successful" as most cultures that practice arranged marriages frown on divorce. And many either explicitly allow for polygamy or tolerate the existence of concubines and mistresses.

  95. I thought they were expensive, even with the sale. And unlike other sites I've seen that sell similar swimwear, their return policy is stricter. There's a 45 day limit for returns, returns after 30 days are for 3 months of store credit only, you pay return shipping, and some items are not returnable. Be aware of that before you order.

  96. Furthermore, you gotta keep the home fires burning. I’m not wearing a bikini anymore but man I want my husband proud of me and looking at me in my one piece-not the 100 girls wearing nothing. Don’t take yourself completely out of the equation in this odd costume. A suit like this isn’t going to do it for any man, which I get we’re not trying to attract EVERY man but I do want my husband looking at me.

  97. I would wear this anytime I was involved with anything having to do with water! We often go kayaking up in Banff (being Albertan's) and I think they would be awesome for that!

  98. I would wear it to the lake.

  99. there prices are very high can do better elsewhere for work out clothes. 90 for a work out shirt or pants is why out of line. do the duggars buy these clothes if they do were is the savings for them since prices are very hight.

    My children are needing to learn how to swim. I need a modest swim suit to wear while I teach them.

    My favorite @hydrochic post was about the different lengths of skirts and leggings.

    The company I used to get my modest swimwear from closed down. So this is good because now I know somewhere else to get some!!

  105. Seems rather overpriced to me. Good quality active wear that can be used to swim in can be found elsewhere for considerably less money. They appear to be using the term "modest" to attract buyers.

  106. Going to the beach this summer as a family for the first time! We’d definitely put the gift card to good use with me and my daughters both needing swimwear!

  107. At the risk of offending Christians there are several sites (won't name them here) that offer attractive swimwear for Muslim women for far less than these people.

  108. I love the modest swimwear idea—and I’m an atheist! There’s nothing wrong with regular swimwear, and certainly a woman has the right to choose whatever she wishes to wear in the water (and whatever she wishes to do with her own body,) but personally, I don’t like the attention I receive when I wear regular swimsuits. I just don’t like showing off my body.

    So maybe I’ll check it out! Do you know if they support conservative causes, Ellie? By the way, you really could be a model!

    1. Thanks for sharing that, KitKath. I enjoyed hearing your point of view. I’m not sure if they support conservative causes. They’re a fairly small company run by two friends.

      Thank you for your kind words! You’re very sweet!

  112. My favorite instagram picture of theirs was the purple stripe suit and hat picture from November 16th ( https://www.instagram.com/p/BbkGx02DcQZ/?taken-by=hydrochicswimwear). She looked so fresh and fun!!

  114. Super interesting! I am not motivated from modesty but sometimes the outdoor swimming pool is cold. I would love the swim yoga pants! Also, good idea Ellie and Lily. I like learning more about the stuff that maybe every fundie knows but I don't. :) I kind of see you guys as the bridge between fudie and other denominations/secular world. We can learn a lot from fundies on how to put the emphasis on God in daily living. Thanks for this!
