So yesterday I wrote about how I was trying to find an alternative to Barbie or Bratz dolls for my two young daughter's because I want them to have dolls that incorporate the sense of modesty we, as parents want to instill to them.
Yesterday, I had a number of responses to my blog entry, thank you to all who have given a response. It was great to hear from my readers.
Throughout my teen years and adult years I have struggled with weight issues, and have always been a little jealous of "the girls out there" who could dress in any style of clothing and look good all the time. Only in the last several years have I realized that I do not have to, nor do I want to, wear itsy bitsy clothing, and too tight clothing to look attractive. I am still not 100% comfortable with my body (still trying to lose weight) but I am finally finding out what I can wear and wear well.
That said, I did some internet searching last night and this morning and discovered many company's that design and produce modesty wear. I have to admit, when I first heard the term, modesty wear, I automatically thought frumpy, non-sexy clothing but wow, I was wrong. Yes, some of the modesty wear out there is very plain and not items I would choose to wear. However, there are several that carry very cute, sexy, yet modest clothing. As far as clothing for young girls and teens, I certainly do not want my pre-school daughter to look sexy, and a number of companies carry super cute shirts, dresses, pants and swimwear that is adorable!
Here is a list of only a few websites I found in my search. I know there a many more, so here is what I would love to hear from my readers: do you know of other modesty wear websites, or company's that have cute, attractive clothing for women, teens and children? What are your thoughts on dressing modest?
Here is my list:
Modest Clothing for Christians
I noticed that on a number of these sites, the prices can be a little steep, however I know that when you shop at stores like Wal-Mart, The Children's Place, Zellers, etc you can also find modest looking clothes too. The above sites are company's that offer strictly modest clothing, whereas the other companies I just mentioned do not. As well, many of the specialized modesty wear company's have a religious base in the mission statements, etc. Not always, but often.
I look forward to your thoughts :)
