modesty 101; vol. 3: tops
Immodest tops are not the way to go this summer! Hello, lets be real here, the less you wear doesn't necessarily mean you are going to be any cooler than if you were covered up! Let's be more conscious of how we 'choose to wear less' without looking cheap and immodest. It's everywhere, this fetish for flamboyant, flashy, flyway, and sometimes, if not all the time, showy tops: t-shirts, tank-tops, shirts-whatever you want to call them-are that sort of clothing item we wear all the time. We don't normally think about shirts, especially T-shirts as being a modesty problem. But, they can be, that is, if you're not careful.
I wear shirts like the rest of you. I wouldn't be caught dead leaving the home without one on. Although, I know a few who could care less whether they were wearing one at all. Gross! I do stress modesty in all aspects of fashion (shoes and socks excluded). Quite honestly, I am even an advocate on modest lounge wear and undergarments. Nothing more disgusting than scanty panties and slutty nightgowns. Tisk-tisk.
But, we'll go over that another time. Since I did a segment on short-shorts last week, I am going to take a peek at the world of tops (big, little, tight, loose, etc.). I wonder what we'll find. I'm curious as to what types of tops will be relevant to this modesty movement. Hmmm...sprightly modest or hopelessly slutty.
Either choice is up to you. For me, I'd much rather be sprightly modest-covered up, but still looking my best! Now let's see what I can dig up and nit-pick the styles.
|Oh dear me! This is a perfect example of "showing too much". The sheer tops are elegant and cute, but too see-through. Wow...not impressed. And to think some actually wear these without t-shirts or camisoles underneath. The horror! Lord, I hope they at least have a bra of some sort on (excuse the slang). Cute, but needs more coverage. Way more. A lot more!|
|WOW! This, um, is off the chart scary! How would someone wear this anyhow? I am confused as to why anyone would ever, in their right mind, want to wear something so sexual and tight? I'd suffocate and feel majorly exposed. :0|
