A Tankini for two (year old, that is)



My husband and I agreed to not place out little girl in bikini's not because she wouldn't look adorable in them but for the same reason this modesty button was placed up for. So a shopping we went. Now that she was potty trained I wanted a two piece that she could get the bottoms down easily. We looked and looked . . . There were LOTS of bikini's and halter, belly showing tops, but the only tankini I could find was in size 4. No matter, we bought it. Now we have a couple of years to go before the butt isn't sagging on it, but I think it is worth it all the same.

I have to post this on my site. Some of the things they market to young girls is so disheartening. Society is way too centered on a girl's physical shape and there is so much more to who a person is.

I'm all for modesty too, coming from the other side, trying to raise boys. I would imagine that it has to be hard to teacht them to be respectful and control themselves when there are women out there that dress so scantily. And if I have a little girl someday, like I hope I do, she will be dressed modestly as well.

I am getting the girls' swimsuits from Lands End next year. They have tankini's that cover! Check them out. They are a little more pricy, but since they last all summer without falling apart I consider it worth it.
