Posts by modest momma

I cover except while in the shower and in bed. But, you know sometimes I will dress a bit sexier for the hubby. Nothing wrong with that, sexy is even in the Bible.:

You know hen you have those days and you're inside all day? Tank tops I...

I've always been most comfortable dressing modestly (long skirts, pants, or sometimes long shorts in summer, loose tops), and did I ever stick out in high school! I've always felt it empowering to dress modestly. My body is my own, and I am not going to allow any cultural pressure to tell me I have to dress as an object for male eyes (I know not everyone feels that way about...

The abayas are much thinner material and feel awesome when the wind blows through the sleeves on a hot day.lol BUT I only wear solid colours with no other patterns because *for me* that is part of my modest dress.

I thought it was just the pregnancy, but it has continued, and now I wear sleeves at least to my elbow, and layers. It's already hot here, but it's probably better because I sunburn so easily. I wear some jeans, but I am transitioning to calf length skirts, and...
Quote: Originally Posted by neveryoumindthere Another modest mama here I cover everything except hands and face, with a scarf and long loose overgarment. At home I wear whatever (tight, sleeveless, jeans etc) and with my girlfriends, usually jeans and a long top, no cleavage or back showing or low rise pants without a top to cover. It does get really hot here and so I will wear sleeveless. It can get up and around 120 degrees! What kind of...
