Modesty in Girls' Clothes

As a mother of two girls, this is something that I've been keeping my eye on carefully. As part of my vocation as a mother, I need to guard my daughters' purity and teach them how to do the same. These days, it's very difficult to find appropriate clothing for the girls, and by appropriate I mean not just modest, but also the "non-snarky" kind. We've all seen those shirts with cutsie sayings on them. Lately, they've been getting brattier and brattier.

Just this weekend while we were eating out, we saw a little girl about the same age as my older daughter, who is not quite eight. This girl was wearing a T-shirt that said:

1. I want it.

2. You buy it.

3. Any questions?

It was disgusting.

Now there's this. You can put this button on your blog and post a mission statement from Moms for Modesty. My button is posted, and here's the Mission Statement.

Moms for Modesty Mission Statement

As a Mom for Modesty I believe in common-sense modesty for girls and young women.

  • I believe in refraining from sexualizing our girls and young women.
  • I believe that it is unwise and unfair to taunt boys and young men by permitting my daughter(s) to dress in an immodest manner.
  • I believe that true beauty comes from within and I strive to teach my daughter(s) this truth.
  • I will loyally shop at retailers that provide girls' and young womens clothing that is modest, affordable and stylish.
