Covering Up at the Beach

MJL recently got an interesting email from a woman designing a line of modest swimwear. Thought I’d share:

Shalom…I am the designer and manufacturer of an original line of kosher swimwear and cover-ups-called AQUA MODESTA. Baruch Hashem, the line is in accordance with Jewish halachot of modesty as well as fashionable and functional. Now the Jewish ladies and girls no longer have to give up on modesty when swimming. Please help spread the word around and participate in the mitzva of tzniut. the website is…tizku lemitzvot
