Counting On - Jill Duggar Models Swimwear On Instagram, Would Jim Bob Approve?
Fans of Counting On know that Duggar family patriarch Jim Bob Duggar has some very strict rules. Not only does he and his wife Michelle enforce an extremely conservative dress code, but they also don’t let their 19 kids go swimming when they live at home.
Traditional swimwear shows way too much skin, so anytime the Duggar clan enjoys the water they wear t-shirts and culottes. But, now that former Counting Star Jill Duggar is married to Derick Dillard and a mom to two kids of her own, Jill continues to break her parents’ rules - especially during the hot Arkansas summer.
Jill has teamed up with ModLi fashion, and in a new paid partnership post she modeled some new swimwear for her 1.6 million Instagram followers.
“💦Are you spending a lot of extra time in the water this year? ☀️Pools might not be open yet, but we are enjoying lots of quality family time in the backyard with water play! 💙” wrote Jill in the caption. “🤗 I was so excited to find @modlifashion 🏊🏼♀️ All of their swimwear is UPF50 and they have so many cute swim & sport clothing options everyone will love! 🚴🏽♀️”
The mom of Israel and Samuel gave her fans a more detailed review of the swimwear in videos she posted to her Instagram Stories. The modest swimwear included different pieces like “swim skorts,” knee-length biker shorts, racerback tops, and spandex shirts with sleeves.
Jill has been breaking plenty of the Duggar family rules since she left home and married Dillard. In addition to the swimwear, Jill has also pierced her nose, and she wears jeans, short skirts, and heels.
The former reality star also lets her kids watch TV, and she and Dillard have enrolled their oldest son Israel in public Kindergarten instead of opting for homeschooling.
Jill’s relationship with her parents seems to have deteriorated since she moved out of the house and started her own life with her husband. Last year, Dillard revealed on social media that neither he nor Jill is allowed to visit the Duggar family home without Jim Bob being there.
Counting On fans have voiced their support for Jill Duggar, letting her know that they enjoy watching her live her best life on her own terms.
“So excited to see you are living your life the way you want to,” one fan commented, with another adding: “I’m so glad to see you coming out of your shell more. “You look amazing,” wrote a third fan.
