From Eilat Beach to the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea, from Lake Tiberias to the Dead Sea, women have issues regarding swimwear coverage, in Israel and around the world.
Harold & Marci Rapp recently immigrated with their teenage daughter to Jerusalem, Israel from Toronto, Canada to join their 3 sons. Back in the “old country”, Marci and her friends had struggled to find a swimming cover that was both modest and suitable. “We wore cotton nightshirts, which were too short, heavy when wet, clingy, and remained damp and cold out of the water”, Marci laments.
With the warmer climate in Israel and easier access to beaches, opportunities to swim became more frequent. The problem still existed, what to wear to cover up?
· To cover up from the sun.
· To cover up age, weight or medical related imperfections.
· To cover up for religious modesty.
Over the last few years, the modest swimwear industry has evolved globally. However, few of the styles available were colourful, or suitable for women with full figures. MarSeaModest Swimwear was founded in 2009 to address these needs.
MarSeaModest designs will attract women who appreciate the colourful printed fabrics and the flexibility of coverage for every body type, with separate & adjustable pieces. Styles can be suitable for larger women, with fuller figures, DD+; also, we have mastectomy option in the Tankini and SwimBras. The neckline of the Swim Dresses & Swim Tops, the straps & band of the Swim/Sports Bras and ModesTankini, are all easily adjustable. There are also length options for the skirts. Some styles are suitable as maternity wear.
MarSeaModest Swimwear offers women increased UV sun-protection and comfortable coverage, while eliminating unwanted body exposure. Styles come in a variety of fashionable prints, colours and sizes.
The MarSeaModest line includes Swim Dresses, Swim Skirts, Swim Shorts & Capris, SwimTops, ModesTankinis, AquaSkort, Swim/Sports Bras, and Swim Berets/Bandanas, all made from high quality Italian nylon/spandex swimwear fabric, which is UV protective, chlorine resistant, non-transparent, lightweight and dries quickly. In the water, the fabric clings and is not heavy, to allow for easy swimming. Out of the water, the fabric releases the water and the fabric unclings quickly.
MarSeaModest Swimwear is suitable for religious modesty coverage, for all religions including Jewish, Christian and Muslim. We've received orders abroad from the USA, Germany, Australia and S. Africa. Some women want coverage for their diving or snorkelling water activities. Our styles are also suitable for exercising, yoga, biking, hiking, as well as swimming.
MarSeaModest Swimwear wishes all women a modest & sun-safe swim!
