I am a bit disappointed in the comments left on this article. Sister Cheney is
trying to fill a need. If this is not your particular need, then don't buy
it and move on. There is no need to argue doctrine, the sexualization of
children, or what constitutes modesty in your eyes. Kudos to Cheney pursuing

Down the road, Cheney would love to be
selling in larger retail stores and eventually expand her swimwear company to
include women, men and boys.

Seems there's some confusion over what "spaghetti straps" are -
lace-up ties at the back they are not! As a mom & grandma of many, and now a
and great grandma (and long-time swimmer myself) I think these look great!
Practical and cute. Maybe there's also some confusion over what you do in a
swimsuit? (That is, swim, not parade around). These look very functional. Good
So little girls are wearing immodest swimsuits. Who knew ? And what about the
boys with trunks, speedos, and no tops ? Is modesty just a girl thing ? I
don't know if this movement among LDS people to sexualize little girls and
to cover them up to look modest requires laughter or crying. Is it the case that
parents see their little girls as " sexy" and therefore need to cover
them up ? Or is the market only for those parents who enter their little girls
in beauty pageants at incredibly young ages. The judgement of modesty regarding
the appearance of a 3-5 year old girl (based on photos) belongs in the eye of
the beholder. Look inward, my friend, for the real problem.
I'm curious as to when the gospel standards for modesty changed. What
happened to the standards of nothing too short, too low cut (front and back),
and too tight? Did they go the way of the world, also? The problem with the
Latter-day Saints is that they have accepted the world's standards of
Hmmm. As a parent, I would not consider these suits to be all that modest or
terribly different from some "regular" suits in some big box stores.
Yes, it is leaning more toward modesty, but not quite there. Add a few inches on
the bottoms/legs, and make sure the midrif doesn't show at all. No on the
spaghetti straps.So yes, I would consider modesty to be subjective.
I shop for rash guards because they are what I consider to be modest, yet
functional, stylish (more sporty-freedom to play and be active), and provide sun
protection as well. No tugging, adjusting, accidentally losing parts of a
suit.But, kudos to this woman for doing what she is doing. As the
company grows, I would suggest more styles (especially longer bottoms) for
parents with different ideas of what modesty means to them.
