    A few of the pages here mention that modest swimwear is required so as to not offend. Does that mean a one-piece is ok or should I plan to cover up even more?

    yes, a one piece is fine. in saying modest we're talking about extremely skimpy bikinis, topless, miniscule speedos etc -- all stuff that is fine in St Tropez, but well out of place on a quiet village beach in SE Asia.

    Modest swimwear has grabbed extreme popularity among women, irrespective of their ages. Along with women, it is also available for kids. Though they may look quite uncomfortable to wear and to carry, they are neither less stylish nor less comfortable.

    Padilla - could you try harder to be more blatant in advertising here?

    "Though they may look quite uncomfortable to wear and to carry, they are neither less stylish nor less comfortable."

    That depends on what your style objective is. If you are a woman with a hot body trying to get men to notice you, then "modest swimwear" is definitely less stylish!
