Review: CAMI Swimwear

I just got a new swimsuit from CAMI Swimwear and was excited when I opened the box and saw it- the colors were vibrant and the style was even cuter than it looked on the website. The suit fits great- very flattering to my post-baby body! (I had my 2nd baby in Nov. of ’08.) I got the “Cali” print (not shown here) in the Draw String style women’s swimsuit, with turquoise bottoms.

CAMI Swimwear (CAMI stands for Cute and Modest Ideas) started selling 2-piece modest swimsuits in junior’s sizes a few years ago and have since expanded to offer swimwear in women’s and children’s sizes too. Recently they also added some skirts and dresses to their line which can be seen at www.camiswimwear.com.

All CAMI swim tops are cut long so you can enjoy water activities without having to worry about staying covered. They offer three swimsuit top styles: v-neck, high neck and racing-back tank. The bottoms come in a regular cut or boy cut. Since it’s fun to mix and match (and necessary for a good fit) tops and bottoms are ordered separately according to body measurement, style and print.

You don’t want to be wearing the same swimsuit as another girl, right? Well at CAMI they only order enough fabric to make 10 to 40 suits out of one print so their selection is always changing. They love to provide cute, comfortable, modest clothes at competitive prices.

**Just in time for swimsuit season, everything’s 20% off in March and April ’09 at CamiSwimwear.com!

I just despair at so many women in the church who kid themselves that halter necks, tankini’s etc are modest. Trendy – they may be, but a one-piece is what is stipulated by the church. there are many wetsuit types made from swimsuit material. anything else could prove immodest. Is your wanting to look fashionable worth more then the virtue of a righteous young man who may be affected by your appearance ?? Not to mention the messages you give out personally

If you want to wear a wetsuit to go swimming go right ahead, but a one-piece has been said by the church because there proves too much variation in tankinis, but now that longer tankinis are out I believe that they are perfectly acceptable because they cover just as much or more than one-pieces. and I go to BYU and a wetsuit swimsuit is not required to go swimming in the pool, just a normal one-piece, the honor code is strict and stipulated by the church and that is the requirement. and if a rightous young man cannot bear to be around you for a couple hours in a swimsuit then maybe he isn’t so righteous. and if i’m wearing a one-piece or a modest tankini i think the message i’m giving out personally is a good one, that i care about my standards.

There are one piece swimsuits that cover less than a tankini. I have found that I can choose the boy shorts and a modest tankini and be covered MUCH more than a one piece. You can have a one piece that is a halter neck and very high cut on the legs. Is this considered modest compared to what I have chosen? I feel that I am covered way more and modest.
