Easy to move in for girls. Sit cross legged, do a cartwheel, dive and jumpno worries, your girl will be covered and modest.
Bust: measure over the fullest part of the bustline, keeping the measuring tape level across the back. Waist: measure around the narrowest part of the trunk, a few inches above the belly button. This is higher than where pants are generally worn. Hips: measure around the largest part of the bottom, keeping the measuring tape level across the front of the body. Torso: hold one end of the measuring tape level on the flat top of the shoulder (where a strap would cross).Pull the tape diagonally down through the crotch and up again diagonally across the back to meet the measuring tape at the shoulder again. This is the torso measurement. Keep in mind that swim lycra is stretchy and an approximate measurement will fit very well. Select the measurement that most nearly matches your body.
To care for your sarong swimsuits:as with all swimsuit fabric, the delicate fiber can be damaged by sun, dryer heat, abrasion, and chlorine, and will naturally fade with use. To preserve your suit, rinse in cold water after use and drip dry. Hot tubs and swimming pools contain chlorine which may damage your fabric. After each use, hand-wash your garment in mild soap, rinse well, and hang to dry out of the sun. Do not leave rolled up wet.
Do not iron or dry clean. Do not dry in direct sunlight. A true story:after 3 boys in a row, i got a daughter and when she was old enough to wear a swimsuit, i was in for a shock. I could already see that the world and i were not going to agree on how much of my daughter's skin they were going to get to see. So began a very long shop-a-thon which left me empty-handed.Covering a normal swimsuit with a t-shirt and shorts was not the answer (a wet t-shirt is very immodest) then i began a sewing fury, trying this and that, mostly failures. To dress my daughters in modest bathing suits became an obsession. We tried so many things did modest bathing suits existi went to the local swimming pool to observe. No modest bathing suits here if it wasn't so sad, it would be laughable. Every teen and woman there was in a pull-and-yank struggle to keep covered. First it was a two-handed pull-down of the back of the suit so the panty didn't ride up on their bottom. Then it was a yank to the front neck to keep their cleavage a bit more covered. Then on to the underarms to try once again to keep their breasts more covered, and then to the front crotch area, trying to make a tiny width of fabric cover a very private part of the body. This didn't look fun we desperately needed modest bathing suitsour sarong swimsuit is made of quick-drying lyrcra swim fabric that stretches with your body's movements. Women's sizes has sewn-in lightly padded no-show-through bra cups (instead of those limp, panel bras). The sarong skirt (sewn in) drapes beautifully giving the crotch coverage that make us feel much more at ease. Under the skirt are shorts, not a panty, thank goodness, so you can sit at ease cross-legged in the sand without ever tugging at anything and it is all one piece, so no worry about midriff showing, sarong falling off or anything else.

Older women appreciate the skin coverage of modest bathing suits. Boaters wear them as splashwear. Sun sensitive people love the fact that they give top-of-the-arm and thigh coverage, where sunburns can be so painful.
