Modesty can be chic


FASHION SCENE: A shopper checks the latest styles in Boston. Some women are looking for more modest attire.

NEW YORK – A few years back, Chelsea Rippy was a frustrated shopper. She would go out once a week looking for new clothes and would come back empty-handed. Racks of cleavage-baring tops and low-rise jeans were leaving the stylish young mom with few options for clothes she felt comfortable in.

Ms. Rippy, a Mormon, finally decided to fix the problem herself. Last fall she launched her own line of stretchy T-shirts and camisoles that can be worn under today's most revealing clothes. She's been surprised by the reception her shirts have received - and by the diversity of customers who buy from her online and at home parties.

"I knew that if I needed [these shirts], someone else did. But I had no clue as to the magnitude of it," says the founder of Shade Clothing, from her home in American Fork, Utah. "I originally started it thinking I would appeal to other members of my religion, but it's gone far ...

My dictation program I think has an (evil) mind of its own! Michael U. and others are quite correct about Mormonism.

I think I may have to print at least part in this article out, so I'll have a lot of good questions to as Mormons when they come knocking that the door. Lorri MacGregor has a lot a good articles on Mormonism, but this is a very handy one.

Michael and Daniel you are quite right that Mormonism is in Christianity.

It's interesting that the Victorians were covered from head to foot, but they had a higher birth rates than there is now. Men like to be surprised. ;-)

Arthur, the biblical comment on dress for women is this follows:

(Darby Version)
1Timothy 2
9. In like manner also that the women in decent deportment and dress adorn themselves with modesty and discretion, not with plaited [hair] and gold, or pearls, or costly clothing,

I used this version because it is not a question of making something bad -- good, But instead of not turning something good into something bad the various attributes of women. I think Darby caught the meaning better than some earlier versions of the Bible.

Good catch! quote
Mormonism is not part of the "christian community" Although that might not have been the intention of this article, I think it would be wise to draw the line where it should be.
end of quote

Thanks

"Modesty" - it's definition and application, like everything else travels with time and traditions.
I doubt that it's application by Paul, at 1Tim.2:9 is the same point, as may be made today in fashion sense, or the cut of the dress and what it reveals.

Modesty is not about making something good out of something bad!

The point Paul makes is one not out of fashion, per se. but of reverence in terms of shame and humility.
This better fits with the previous verse on men lifting holy hands in prayer.
And 'godliness' in the woman in the next verse. After all godliness is not achieved by articles of clothing.

They have replaced the gospel of faith in Jesus with a works gospel that aims at becoming "gods" themselves.
