When you get older you won’t have sun-damaged skin on your chest, shoulders, back, and thighs. Your skin is better protected from the sun’s rays and therefore will not show signs of aging as quickly or as severely as it would if exposed.
More Flattering Figure
Women who dress to their body types modestly look more flattering. Wearing clothes that fit and cover allows your body to look its best (just watch What Not to Wear for examples).
With all the t-shirts, camisoles, cardigans, and other layering devices in your wardrobe, you can mix and match to make numerous outfits and easily dress up or down an outfit as well.
You won’t experience the pain and discomfort from super high heels or tight, restricting clothes. Your legs won’t stick to, get burned from, or get dirtied by hot chairs and gross public seating areas. You also won’t be as cold as your less-dressed friends in an air-conditioned building. One day in high school a girl complained about the cold classroom. Our male teacher responded, “Maybe if you wore more clothes you wouldn’t be so cold!”
