Modesty is a big deal to me. For both religious reasons and personal reasons.
The personal reasons being my chubby knees.
The religious reasons being respect for myself and for the religious garment I choose to wear.
Somedays I believe it would be easier to mill about town in a habit than try to keep everything tucked in, covered and in its place. Take my trip to Florida with my sister last year:
It would have been a lot easier to wear a strapless bra and go without the undershirt. But I would have felt naked and constantly worried that something was going to pop out at a very bad moment. Of all the places to be wearing a sundress properly it’s on the beach in Florida, but I couldn’t do it. I had to be covered.
Then there was my 23rd birthday/going away dance party extravaganza. Again. Had to be covered.
While the undershirts are well and good, they’re not always the greatest option.
Which leads me to my most favorite clothing find of all.
Fancy dresses with sleeves built in.
DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW HARD THEY ARE TO FIND?
I think I own three dresses with built in sleeves. Two of them can pass for fancy. One of them gets passed around amongst my neighbors because it may be the only fancy black modest dress in existence.
Enter brilliant women who like clothes.
They start a clothing line called Shabby Apple.
I’ve mentioned them before, and I may never shut up about them.
All their dresses COME WITH SLEEVES AND DECENT HEMLINES FOR GIRLS WITH CHUBBY KNEES.
And they’re pretty. OH, are they pretty.
Can you just imagine? With boots? With kicky heels? With shiny flats? I’m so in love with jewel tones I’m considering therapy.
They also have little girls’ dresses AND maternity dresses. *swoon*
