  1. I’m a pear shape but, to be honest, I don’t feel as though stretchy pants are immodest on me (or many women) and my husband agrees. I think a lot of modesty is in the eye of the beholder and we need to ensure that we’re not shaming others for what we view as immodest. (Not that I’m saying that’s what you’re doing, I’m just passionate about this) 🙂

    • Susannah! Thanks for your comment! Personally, I’ve known a lot of guys who struggle with stretchy pants (read yoga pants and leggings). I just feel like if I can help someone by a simple change of clothes, than I should be doing that. It doesn’t hurt me to stay away from yoga pants and leggings, and if I can love someone better by doing that I’m going to. I don’t want to shame anyone who chooses to wear them, but rather simply explain why I personally don’t think it’s a great idea. 🙂

    As a true hourglass shape who struggles with modesty it’s super hard to dress at times. I wear camis with most of my shirts/dresses yet still have lots of close calls. I also find for a skirt to fit it has to be longer than I’d like in the front to cover the back. 😛

    • Sorry it’s taken me so long to reply to this 🙁 In any case, thanks for commenting!

      I’m right there with you. I’m also a true hourglass (even when I gain or lose weight the proportions stay the same), and I feel like that makes modesty so hard. It’s something I want to focus on in the future with this blog. Especially because the hourglass body shape is fairly uncommon, which means that it’s super hard to find anyone giving advice about how to dress modestly with it. Ugh.

      I have such a love/hate relationship with camis. On one hand, they are great to make tops more modest. On the other hand, I feel like they give me false confidence with what I’m wearing. I think that I’m all covered, but those things need only to slip half an inch and yikes! Lol. I think I might switch to crew neck t-shirts instead of v-necked ones, just because I’m sick of worrying about it. But then higher necklines give the illusion of making the bust look even larger. So basically, you just can’t win. LOL
