What does the Bible say about this topic:
In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
~ 1 Timothy 2:9-10 - KJV
So what does that all mean? I believe first off we should be covering a good bit of our bodies. I wasn't always that modest (confession for real life people that know me!!) and I'm not always 100% that modest in my home. However out and about I try to keep a simple rule. No cleavage, nothing above the knees and thick shell tanks if sleeveless.
This is my personal standard. I know not all feel this way - however I took time with that verse above and prayed about it and I feel like God gave me these personal convictions. I want my life to be pleasing to HIM.
I don't judge others - you have to have your own set of convictions and standards. You all need to do them for the right reasons! Not because I told you too, not because your church says to, but because you took the time to pray about the situation and God has given you the answers.

My Sweet friend Misty from Everything In It's Time shared a picture of her Modern and Modest Sunday morning outfit.

I hope this post has been a blessing to you! Remember you have to feel comfortable in what you wear - that is a big component in how I choose my clothing.
