Your custom bathing dress sounds adorable. Does your seamstress have an Etsy shop or a website? I would be interested if you feel comfortable PM’ing me.I have a few non-negotiable rules for myself.
1. No showing cleavage when standing or sitting. If it's a shirt that will show cleavage when I bend forward, I am very aware of it and will do things to offset it if I should happen to need to bend forward. (Hold my arm in front; bend forward facing away from people, etc.)
2. No showing thighs. This means I don't wear shorts or skirts that go above the knee. If a skirt is shorter than tea-length, I wear shorts or leggings underneath.
3. No wearing leggings as pants. I only wear them under skirts or under long sweaters. They gotta cover the butt.
4. No showing stomach. This is pretty self-explanatory.
My modesty standards also extend to my home. The only child of mine who I wouldn't necessarily feel embarrassed in front of is my seven-year-old daughter, but I may as well dress modestly in front of her, too, because it sets an example.
For the last six or seven years, my modesty standards have also extended to my bathing suit. I had a bathing suit custom-made for me by a Christian seamstress I found online. It looks more like a bathing dress, with shorts underneath.
She closed up shop! She used to be called "Stitchin' Times". I think I got my suit in maybe 2015-ish and she stopped selling maybe 1-2 years later. There are two other ones who make similar styles. One is called Meant to be Modest and the other is Modestly Yours Swimwear.Your custom bathing dress sounds adorable. Does your seamstress have an Etsy shop or a website?

I like that for warmer weather or on a pool deck. I'd imagine swimming laps in that wouldn't be too bad as the drag with the skirt would likely be a bit more minimal than the full burkini.
I wouldn't mind wearing more "immodest" sportswear/leggings/sportsbras at home to work out in so I get you there. Any suggestions on exercise videos? Might lead me down the right path.My dad was very picky about my clothes, so I was always used to dressing modestly. One time my mom bought me a shirt that didn’t have sleeves, and he made her return it. I was so bummed, because it didn’t show anything. But it set a standard that I wasn’t allowed to cross. My problem is more that I like to play with fashion, so I do stick out a little bit compared to a lot of my friends, who are content to wear baggy jeans and their husband’s college sweatshirts. I don’t want to stick out, but old sweatshirts are not fun to me. I do have a few pairs of yoga/workout pants, but I wear them around the house to actually work out. It takes too much time to drive to the gym and back, so I mainly use exercise videos at home. I pick ones with modestly dressed instructors because I don’t like my kids seeing women in tiny clothes working out. My husband isn’t as picky as my dad was, but leggings, yoga pants, or other tight clothes are definitely not acceptable to him for out in public. He doesn’t care if I wear them at home to exercise. As far as influencers, I don’t have Instagram so I’m not sure what they look like.
I like the THM Workins. They seem easy, but I totally feel the burn for a few days after. When they get too easy, I add more weights.I wouldn't mind wearing more "immodest" sportswear/leggings/sportsbras at home to work out in so I get you there. Any suggestions on exercise videos?

I‘d burn up in those modest bathing suits although they’re cute. I wear a tankini, the types with the loose top. I always have to modify it so my bosoms aren’t tumbling out because apparently even grannies are expected to enjoy flashing their bits.
Questions for you on modesty: What does dressing modestly mean to you? Do you? Does your husband weigh in on what is modest or what he'd rather you wear? Do you cover your head?
Secondly: Does it bother you if your influencers are not modest (social media)? If so, how or what do you do to combat this?
