any non-nude references?

Every week I attend a drawing session where a live model is available for drawing, he/she is usually covered. I avoid nudity and will not draw a nude model. Are there any sites that offer pictures of models where the figure is dynamic and whole but has the details covered (similar to the covering of a two piece swimsuit)? I want to draw the form but avoid the nudity.

Google is probably your best bet. There are some photosets that are part of www.characterdesigns.com / photosets, but there are mostly nude photosets. Is there any particular reason why you are avoiding nudity?

It is a personal standard I live by, thanks for the reply. I avoid google because no matter how I word my search I haven't been able to find any covered models suitable for drawing.

Edit: Thanks for that link, there are some decent, clothed models there. I wouldn't mind something similar that has more motion and energy. Any more references would be fantastic. Thanks again.

I don't see how you can get anywhere by avoiding Google - are you opposed to drawing copies of master drawings that show nudity? Check out "Drawing Lessons from the Great Masters" or any book that contains master work. In studying the figure, nudity is pretty unavoidable - alternately, take reference photos of yourself or friends and draw from that, or from statues and paintings from a book, the web (try artrenewal.org) or a museum.
