We are starting to see more and more Modest clothing in the fashion industry and I couldn’t be more excited! We are sharing all our modest fashion tips on the blog and where to shop!
Why I Choose Modest Clothing
Ever since I was a little girl I have loved to shop. I remember going shopping with my grandma at the mall every couple of months. She would always spoil us like crazy. My favorite thing would be carrying all the bags through the mall pretending that I was rich (growing up we were pretty poor). It was my favorite thing in the whole world! For my 8th birthday, I even begged Grandma for a Macy’s credit card, that’s how much I loved to shop! (I didn’t get it by the way).
Although the purchases were fun, the time I spent with my grandma was so much better. She taught me so many lessons in the mall, the most important one was the fact that it is important to dress modestly.
Although I would listen to her and buy modest clothing I always felt limited because let’s be honest there is 1 modest thing to every 15 non-modest things at the store. Not to mention, they are so much more expensive. But over the years, my grandma taught me that you could still wear the trends and look beautiful but in a modest way. (Have I always been perfect? No.)
Within the last couple of years, I have heard more and more friends and followers on Instagram say they wish they could find more affordable modest fashion as well as ways to style different pieces. Slowly I have been sharing fun finds on the blog like our modest swimwear series where we share modest swimsuits for women, teen modest swimwear, and modest swimsuits for girls! Y’all loved it which makes me more excited to start sharing with you even more fun modest clothing finds that pop up!
I am not going to lie, finding modest clothes is hard to do! Yes, clothing stores are starting to advertise “modest clothes” or longer lengths only for them to arrive at your door and you be super disappointed with how tight or short they are (trust me, been there a million times too!)

Modest Fashion FAQs
Has modest fashion always been a thing or is this new?
For some, modest fashion and modest clothing is a new concept that you are loving, but for a lot of women, Christian modest clothing has been a way of life since they were little especially if you grew up as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
We have been seeing more and more modest fashion trends popping up in stores and on Instagram which is super exciting!
What is considered modest fashion?
There are so many different interpretations as to what modest fashion is. It is basically when you choose to wear clothes that are a little less revealing. Typically they show a little less skin.
There are many reasons why people choose to dress modestly. This could be for religious reasons or because you feel more comfortable that way.
No matter what the reason you choose to dress modestly, there are so many great modest fashion trends and places to buy modest clothing.
On the blog and Instagram, we will show you all varieties and levels of modesty so that you find what you are looking for! To help us know what you are looking for, go comment on this post and tell us what modest fashion means to you so that we know what you are looking for so we can help you find it!
Is modesty attractive?
Heck yeah, it is! In my teenage years, I hit a rebellious point, I used to think less is more. I would push the limits that were set in regards to standards to the extreme. I remember the fights in the dressing room thinking, “I should be able to wear whatever I want…”
Then I remembered all the modest tricks and tips my grandma taught me on all those shopping trips. I realized that I can look my best and also feel great by wearing things that were modest.
When I dress in modest clothing I feel empowered and I start valuing my own worth more. More importantly when I dress this way I feel beautiful. Since realizing this, I haven’t looked back.
How to dress modestly?
When it comes to modest clothing and dressing modestly, everyone has a different standard and that is just fine!
For some, dressing modesty is only wearing shirts that come up higher and that have sleeves, where others feel like a modest shirt is a tank top with thicker straps.
When it comes to wearing modest shorts and skirts you typically wear them a little longer perhaps around the knee or longer if you are going for a more modest look.
Some people think leggings are not modest because they are too tight, but in my opinion, I am like bring on the leggings because mama needs something comfortable and easy to put on in the morning.
So when it comes to dressing modestly it is really what you feel is modest and what you are comfortable with.
