Modesty is a really interesting topic, and being a Christian blogger that is a girl, that has a lot of girl followers, I really wanted to talk on this topic for about five months now!
So, here we go.
There are lots of beliefs on this topic, let’s go over the basic views with three girls talking together on this topic:
Jenny: I just don’t care about modesty, I mean, what’s the big deal?
Camryn: My Mom says that God wants all of us to be modest, but we can still be trendy.
Brooke: No way, Camryn, those shorts? Wow, so immodest. My Mom said that we can’t wear shorts that short and we can’t have any bright colors, and we have to wear baggy stuff-men can’t see our curves, it’s not right.
Jenny: Brooke! That makes you stand out when you come in…everyone notices because you look so different. You don’t look like you care about yourself.
Camryn: I agree.
Interesting, right? Only one person is right in this situation and I agree with Camryn.
Let me show you some pictures of what I mean.
I will show you a picture and I will say yay or nay! 🙂
Crop top? No, no, no. I am not sure about my view with crop-tops and shirt underneath them, but I think that is okay, but just a crop-top, no way!
Cute scarf thing! But, this leaves me with the question…does she have shorts on?
Cute color, but can I get a “Tight and short!”
I love…it all! It is super cute and modest, I can’t tell where the shirt lands exactly, but it looks fine. 🙂
Let’s talk about the 2nd one first: I am perfectly fine with the back showing, as long as it is not too low, then that gets too close to the behind which is very immodest, the first one, let’s see, I can’t exactly tell where the chest line is, but it might be a bit low. 🙂 Not sure, it is pretty small.
YAY on second, NOT SURE on the first.
I absolutely love this, the skirt is plenty long while still being super cute, and the shirt is high enough, no chest is shown. Also, the hair: I love it, I think fixing up your hair is supposed to look good, (some may disagree), but in the Bible, it says that a women’s pride is in her hair!
“But if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For her hair is given to her for a covering.” ~1 Cor. 15:22
Now, I don’t think God thinks that short hair is a sin, but I don’t think boy cuts are good for girls either because we are not boys/men, we are women/girls! Boy cuts are for boys, God doesn’t want you to be something He created you not to be-and I don’t believe in thsoe cuts, hair is a women’s blessing, a jewel, and a joy.
I love it, it is long enough, and not too tight! 🙂
Let’s talk about this. It is not modest, even though she is a very little girl, she shouldn’t be showing her stomach.
Before we do more pictures, let’s see what the Bible has to say about modesty:
“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” ~1 Cor. 16:19-20
Our body is a temple, we should honor God by honoring it.
“Like a gold ring in a pig’s snout is a beautiful woman without discretion.” ~Proverbs 11:22
Hum…really? Discretion and modesty go hand in hand, so be modest and don’t throw your honor out the window!
Also, remember the story of Ruth? She adorned herself when she asked Boaz to marry her and carry on the family line; but you know what else? She was modest and she was humble! 🙂 You can be both.
Let’s try a few more pictures:
It would be too short for an adult woman, but because this girl is so small, they can “get away” with more things, this is super cute.
I love it. ❤ This is super cute. Now, shirts like that with those ‘knots’ can be a little short, but as long as you get a good size, you will be fine.
(Left to right). I love it, it’s cute, but I am not for holes in the jeans. The next one is good, very casual. The next one is cute, I don’t know what the shirt says though! The next one, those shorts are short. Now, the last one-cute! Cute! Cute! It really depends on the style of you, to know if you like it or not.
Let’s focus on the shirt-no, no, no! Now, there are undergarments for the chest that don’t have straps and just go around your back and chest, so you could wear that, but if you are going to wear that type of bra you have to remember something: those bras are often too ‘high’ for shirts, so if you raise/move your arms to the side you can see the bra by your arm, which is immodest.
The pants are fine, but the shirt, even though it is not a crop-top, it still too short. You could wear that to bed, (looks comfy)!
Can somebody say cute? I like it. The jeans are not super skinny, and the shirt does not look too low, and the jacket could hide anything, (if ther eis anything), immodest like bra straps.
I have shown you pictures on modesty and outfits that fit the ‘yay’ or ‘nay’ category. I understand a lot of people diagree with me for whatever reason-but, I think this is right.
Show yourself some respect girls, you are worth respect, and coering yourself properly, no matter what your friends or crush says.
Love y’all, you can all breath, that was longer than most of my posts!! 😀
