Where has modesty gone? It seems like when you look for modest clothing, it’s either expensive, poorly made, or frumpy. It is so difficult to find clothes that are both beautiful and modest.
I was looking for a post I was working on the other day, and came across this post that I wrote while pregnant with Caleb. Amazing how I still feel the same way!
It absolutely amazes me how hard it is to find modest clothing any more. I’ve found ways to get around the immodest clothes that seem to be everywhere (sewing my own skirts, wearing tank tops or using hankies or silk scarves under low necklines), but it’s still a challenge.
I’ve been shopping online for maternity clothes. Wow. It seems like the skirts that are available are all way too short, and many of the necklines would need something underneath to make them more modest. The problem is – most of the maternity tank tops I’ve seen aren’t high enough to make them worth using as a more modest layer.
Don’t get me wrong – I don’t mind sewing my own maternity clothes. I’ve been working on a couple of skirts lately that are drawstring waist so that I’ll be able to wear them as long as possible. Unfortunately, modest maternity patterns aren’t so easy to find. I do like to window shop a bit though to look for a few pieces that could fill out my wardrobe, and then try to find my favorites cheaper (like on ebay or at thrift stores).
Where has modesty gone? I know that it’s a problem with most ready-made clothing today, but I wasn’t expecting to find such immodest maternity clothes.
Now, if we could just get some manufacturers to produce clothing that is modest, flattering, AND reasonably priced!
