Dress like the daughter of a King

There’s no question about it. The decision to live your life for God’s glory will require some tough choices. It will probably take more time to shop, and your clothing may actually cost a little more. You may not look as cool or “in” as your would like, and sometimes you just might have to stand out in a crowd as someone who is different. But remember, you are different. You have a different citizenship and you were bought with a costly price!
As you evaluate your wardrobe, you’ll need courage to ask specific, practical questions, like these:

• Is there writing (or picture) on my clothing that emphasizes private parts of my body?

• If someone were to look at me, where would their eyes naturally go— to my face, eyes, hips, thighs/legs, breasts, etc.?

• Where do I want men looking when I come into view?

• Is the fabric that I’m wearing too sheer?

• Could someone see through it to private parts of my body?

• Is the length of my skirt or dress ok, is it way too short?

As you examine individual items in your wardrobe, stand in front of a mirror. Bend forward and ask yourself, “Can I see private parts that a man (other than my husband, if you’re married) shouldn’t see?” If the answer is “yes,” you are dressed immodestly.
Look from all angles—front, back, and sides—while walking, sitting, moving, stretching, and bending.

Remember, we often bend over to pick up packages or children, or to get into and out of a car. Ask yourself, “What will others notice and see? Where will their attention be drawn—towards my excessive cleavage exposure, exposure of thighs because of my short dress, etc.? Why do I want to wear this outfit? Why do I like this style?”

Your heart attitude is key here. Ask the Lord to help you represent Him well. Ask for a teachable, open, obedient heart.

    Nice work u doing.it’s so heartwarming to know that in a world where vices have become virtues and virtues have become vices in our society, someone is propagating decency in our mode of dressing. I hope n belive that women will trully understand that u can be sexy and classy without having to expose ur body.May God continue to enrich u with more knowledge n wisdom. I dey gbadun u seriously!!! ??

    You always look like a million dollars…..a good example that indecent exposure is cheap.
