Conversations About Self-Respect and 'What to Wear'


Did you know that years ago, a small house was considered to be appropriate beach attire? Check out this video for more interesting information about the history of beach attire.  

History of the Bikini  (9:30Min)

In this video, swimsuit designer, Jessica Rey, also shares some interesting research: When a male sees a girl wearing a revealing outfit he tends to think of her as an ‘object’, but when a girl is dressed in an outfit that covers her appropriately, he thinks more about her opinions and thoughts. Wow!

Even if you don't have time to watch the video together, here's a great discussion point for girls and their dads: 


How can a father can lovingly let a daughter know if she is wearing something 
that might cause a male to think disrespectfully about her?

Make a 'game plan' for how this could be communicated next time dad has a concern about daughter's outfit.
