We don’t go swimming much… Public beaches and water-parks are just too immodest for any of us to feel comfortable.

But I do want the children to learn to swim… For safety when they may be near water (fishing, boating, etc.), or even the occasional time we may want to go swimming – in a quiet “swimming hole,” at a friend’s house, who knows?

Read the rest of my Swim Headcovering Review from seasons past… Then come on back for a brand new giveaway!

What, back so soon? :)

I was delighted to discover Princess Modest Swimwear back at that time. An Israeli company, they provide modest swimwear with an eye towards traditional Jewish modesty requirements – including headcoverings.

I purchased one of their fabulous swimsuits in Aqua and Black, and ordered the headcovering to match. Basically, it’s an ordinary lycra swim cap with a black triangle “bandanna” of peachskin microfiber (the quick-drying stuff that men’s swim suits are often made of) sewn along one edge. You can then wrap and tie it in a variety of ways.

My only concern was one that is, while of course not “unique,” certainly one that most of you needn’t worry about – it’s One Size Fits All.

As I explained to someone recently (someone else who sold clothing items, who should have known better!), being tall makes a lot of difference in everything. Someone who is six feet tall is simply proportionately bigger in every respect than someone who is five feet tall. So, while of course everyone is shaped differently, overall the taller person will tend to have a bigger shoe size, a bigger wrist measurement for bracelets, and – yeah – a bigger hat size. (And on top of that I do have quite a bit of hair).

As I described in my original review, I decided to purchase it, with the clearly stated intention that I would take the chance, give the owner feedback on the fit either way, and pass it on to bless someone else if it turned out not to fit.

That’s where you come in. :)
