As the adage goes, “A picture’s worth a thousand words.” With that in mind, here are the first of many posts of photos, in our Series on Modesty, of women and girls of all ages, shapes and sizes wearing modest clothing. If you have thought about the subject of choosing your clothing based on not causing men to stumble or lust in their hearts, and wanting to please God in all things, then I hope that you’ve taken the time to read, “Does What I Wear Matter To God?” and “Why Do You Dress That Way?” This is a topic which is so important in our day and age. I don’t pretend to have all the answers on this subject, but I, with you, want to explore this subject, and ask God to lead us.
Our church did a survey of men on what caused them problems in women’s dress. Check out the results of the Modesty Survey.
I am purposely choosing a vast array of styles to show that anyone can look nice, and express their own style, and still dress modestly. It’s sometimes difficult to find appropriate clothing at an affordable price, and in your size. I have found success at finding skirts and tops at reasonable prices in thrift stores. I like dressing in skirts and tops, because of the flexibility this gives me to mix and match. Also, my body type looks better in separates than in dresses. What works for you?
