What is Modest?

Tuesday, February 9, 2010

When it comes to what we wear, is it possible to define modesty? There are many factors that determine a person's definition of what is considered modest. Depending on where you live, you may be wearing something that would be considered by most to be modest, while in other areas of the world, the same outfit would be seen as shameful. For instance, the picture in this post, the girl's outfit could be viewed as cute by some, and way too short by others.

For many people, religious beliefs play a large role in determining what is perceived as modest. For others, its a personal preference. There are also different standards of modesty between men and women.

While there will always be varying opinions of what is modest, many people agree that the latest trends are not as modest as they could be. I don't see anything wrong with wearing something comfortable on a hot day, I just wish some people wouldn't dress in a way that draws attention to specific parts of the anatomy and then wonder why people are staring at them. It's good to leave something to the imagination!
