I "converted" to Judaism around 10 years ago - my mother is Jewish by birth but my father is Catholic and that is the faith I was kind of raised in. So I guess technically, I did not convert, but I accepted Judaism as my true faith when I was in my mid-twenties.
Anyways, I am not Orthodox nor do I plan to be, but I do find somewhat of a calling towards a more modest-dressing lifestyle. I am curious as to why women choose this way of dress or stick with it if it is something you were raised with. I guess I am more curious about personal satisfaction and fulfillment and not necessarily following a specific teaching or doctrine.
What do you consider modest dress and why? How do you feel about pants, specifically, and what makes you either avoid them or wear them even though you cover your head or would never show your neck?
I guess in sorting through all my own feelings, I am finding I have a lot of questions and things to think about and was hoping for some insight from those of you who have worked through all this already. Thank you for your time, mamas!
