Unlike other women, 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 on immodest women.
More Flattering Figure
Modest women cover up more and therefore look more attractive than women who are “ten pounds of potatoes in a five-pound sack,” as my husband puts it. You can hide your trouble areas more easily with clothes that fit and cover. Furthermore, you don’t need to stress out as much about the swim season. Scars, soft tummies, and stretch marks won’t stop you from strutting your stuff in a cute one-piece swimsuit.
With all the t-shirts, camisoles, cardigans, and other layering devices in your wardrobe, you can mix and match to make more outfits than an immodest friend with the same quantity of clothes. It’s easier to dress up or dress down an outfit as well.
You won’t experience the pain and discomfort from super high stilettos or tight, restricting skirts and pants. Your thighs won’t stick to or get scratched from plastic chairs, and your skin will be better protected from gross public seating areas. You also won’t be as cold as your immodest friends in an air-conditioned building. For example, 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!”
No Wardrobe Malfunction
