The Godly Truth About Bikinis

The Godly Truth About Bikinis

Designer, actress and Christian Jessica Rey delivers a Godly and inspiring perspective on modesty and swimwear that will have you thinking twice about the itsy bitsy bikini!

You may recognize Jessica Rey from one of her many acting roles, such as Alyssa from Power Rangers Wild Force. But Jessica is also a scholar and swimwear designer. In 2008, she created Rey Swimwear, a line of modest, yet stylish bathing suits.

In this viral speech, Jessica recounts the history of the bikini, starting all the back to it’s creation in 1946. Over the years, some say that the bikini symbolizes power for a woman. But Jessica counters this argument citing research from several universities, such as Princeton. ""Bikinis really do inspire men to see women as objects — as something to be used, rather than as someone to connect with. So it seems that wearing a bikini does give a woman power: the power to shut down a man's ability to see her as a person, but rather as an object.”

And while many see modesty as an old-fashioned or outdated concept, Jessica is ready to turn modesty into stylish clothes and swimwear.

In the speech, which has been viewed millions of times across social media, Jessica leaves us with a pondering question.

""We were made beautiful, in His image and likeness, so the question I'd like to leave you with is, 'How will you use your beauty?'""

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”
