So, I've been wondering, can I wear a bikini if it is modest and no revealing? This may seem silly, but I am looking for a new swimsuit and have really bad chest acne. The only thing I can find that is high enough to cover it are some high chested bikinis. I have a plan to just wear the top and wear board shorts but I need some other opinions.

Why can't you purchase a tankini top instead of a bikini top?  Many of those are high chested and then also wear the shorts as well?  A bikini top would allow midriff to show whereas a tankini wouldn't.

I love my new tankini I bought this year.  It’s modest.  Doesn’t show any midriff, and it has the shorts instead of a bikini bottom.  What I’ve disliked about one-piece swimwear is whenever I had to use the restroom, the whole swimsuit would have to be peeled down to your knees/ankles and I’m praying no one is peeking through the gaps in the bathroom stalls, or little children don’t decide to crawl under the stall doors, as they like to do while mom is using an adjoining stall.

Just curious why it is that women are counseled to not show their stomach but men can. 

Perhaps go read the thread again where we beat it to death, rather than dragging this one off-topic.

Just a suggestion.

Due to sun exposure, many people in Texas are foregoing the swimsuit, favoring those cover-all type suits that resemble wetsuits made of polyester rather than neoprene.  They look fine.

My wife will wear a somewhat revealing swimsuit and then put a T-shirt on top of it.

That's what my boys wear here in the northeast, too.

If you are hot, you should definitely wear a bikini.  Acne goes away, hotness doesn't unless you get fat.<_<

I guess I never saw the thread where it was discussed why women can’t show their stomachs.

It wasn't discussed because it's a ridiculous discussion that any honest LDS understands.  You did, however, try to have the argument by tossing around the exact same argument using various other body parts.  

You know that, though.  You're just wordsmithing again.

You are like a parent who when asked “why” says because I said so. Without giving any reason.

You're like the evil inner voice whispering in people's ear "just do it.  It's ok.  It's "technically" not a sin.

Only in this case I gave a specific reference to establish exactly what I was talking about.
