Question with fashion

Hey y’all! I have a question, since everyone’s stance is different, what is “too-revealing” in your eyes? I know the Bible says some things about it, but I was just curious as to what your stance was :>

Honestly, “Too-revealing” is the revealing amount of those skinny bikinis (the really skinny ones made with like 2 straps total) or whatever the wearer finds themselves too self conscious about how much skin is shown!

In my opinion showing too much skin or showing your cleavage. I don’t like when I go out in public and half of my thigh is visible to the public if more than half is visible it totally weirds me out. Booty shorts. I’m more of the T-shirt and jeans kind of girl. Only because I was raised like that and I respect that tremendously. I don’t want people to look at me certain ways as to like adultery if people know what I mean. But really if you’re showing cleavage or wearing too short of a shirt or shorts that go past half of your thigh. That’s my personal dress code.

Too revealing for me is upper thigh and above
Bathing suits are okay but upper thigh (to the point the pants/shorts look like underwear) and shirts where basically evreything is not covered except a small part of your chest iss too revealing for me

As long as nothing is at risk of falling out I don’t care. I cant control what other people wear but clothes are to keep people warm and safe. I wear longer shorts and a t-shirt nearly every day. But sadly its getting harder to find longer athletic shorts because our society has decided short shorts are suuppior

Imo it’s shirts that go up past the bellybutton, any dresses/shorts/skirts that are shorter than 3-4 inches, and showing too much cleavage.

Asking the Holy Spirit for discernment is the biggest thing, and if you have to ask if it is modest enough or try to justify that it is. That is a clue that it probably isn’t. This verse is something that really helps me want to stay modest not for myself or anyone else but for the Lord.

“Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭3‬:‭4‬ ‭

This is also a quote that also speaks to me and hopefully speaks to you as well.

“Modesty is the safe place that hides me from those who seek to hold the body and not the heart. It is not shame that keeps me covered. It is dignity and honor. It is not insecurity that keeps me hidden. It is that I have already been made secure. I do not dress to glorify my own body but to glorify my King.”

imo, as long as you are covering what should be covered, as in your chest and down there, people should be able to wear whatever feels good and comfortable for them. If you like to dress modestly, go ahead, but if you like to show a bit more skin, that’s ok too. It’s probably a bit different for me because I’m not super religious, but that’s my take on it. Personally, I’m right in between. I don’t mind wearing a shirt that’s a bit lower cut than usual, or a crop top (on the longer side, not one of those sport bra size size shirts), but for the most part, I think I dress kinda modestly. It really depends on the day. But, I have zero problem with people who choose to show off their bodies a bit more. You do you!:blush:

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”

Booty shorts (I tried them on at the store and NOOOOOO) Those bikinis that are just the spaghetti straps, those dresses that have a huge dip in the middle going down to like the person’s belly button… I mean you do you, I’d just feel really exposed in that kind of thing

My opinion on modesty is usually a lot more strict then a lot of my other Christian friends. I personally don’t wear anything that reveals too much. No shorts that are shorter then my arms when extended at my sides, nothing that is skin-tight (wearing leggings with no skirt, skinny jeans, etc.) No crop tops, nothing where the cut is too low, etc.
Overall, I say wear whatever you feel comfortable wearing within the bounds of your conviction. God understands that we are all just trying to do our best in this lost world.

I think like whatever makes you happy! But those really small bikinis :bikini: that shows almost everything makes me really uncomfortable. Not everyone wants to see your backside or b**bs

for me, it depends on the mindset.
with the exceptions of a few item of clothing, (like really small bikinis and veryyyy revealing clothes), it’s whatever the wearer intends.
for example: if youre wearing a skirt and a crop top
if your intention is to look cute or just feel like yourself in your clothing, i think thats ok
if your intention is to be “prostituting yourself” so to speak, i dont think thats ok.
(a girl in my show is a good example of this, she wears stuff like rhat cause she can and it makes her feel good, shes nit trying to be attractive)

i know this varies from denom to denom, but in my (non-denom) opinon, its to intention.

of course there are certain things that aren’t appropriate fir areas, like i would wear a crop top to church group or church itself, nor really short bottoms. area has an effect on whats considered modest as well.

and always there are biggg nonos, like super revealing bikinis and crop tops, superrrrr deep vnecks, and super short shorts or skirts are a general nono (unless like layerd on smth modest)

it eeally all depends on the area, intent, and actual contents of the outfit imo

(sorry this is smth im really vocal abt-)

I mean ppl can choose what they wear but your supposed to wear modest clothing bc only your partner is supposed too, if ya know what I mean. But you don’t want to show off to everyone. Me personally I prefer one piece swimwear and higher cut swimwear.(although I will wear a modest 2 piece occasionally) and I also prefer cotton crew neck T shirts and pants or Nike shorts(not butt shorts). And not saying you don’t have a choice bc you do but if you do wear smol smol bikinis or stuff like that I don’t support, but I mean you do you. And also at home you could wear that stuff.
