Source Here are some things I consider when buying clothes: Is it long enough? Because I am tall almost everything is too short. The dresses of our world are getting shorter and shorter. I've taken to wearing an Indian-looking style: I wear short dresses as tunics over pants. I also hunt to find longer dresses. Also, try the new slip extenders. They are slips with lace or ruffles that are meant to be seen hanging under the dress or skirt and make it "longer." Is it loose enough? Not only is tight clothing indecent it is uncomfortable! Buy a size too big! Are there slits? You can find a nice long skirt and get home only to find that there is a big old slit showing too much leg. You may be able to fix this with wearing tights or leggings, but I'd rather avoid slits altogether. Another option is to sew the slit up. Is it too sheer? This can be fixed with a nice slip underneath. In fact you can usually fix problems with the right undergarments: tanks, slips, leggings, etc. Is it too low cut? The public does not need to see cleavage. Cover it up. Tanks work nicely. Is it too flamboyent? I have a problem with this. There is a balance between loving bright colors and wanting to be seen. I have to ask myself, am I trying to be the center of attention? I recently almost bought a hot pink suit. It was modest except for the color. Hard to be modest and humble in hot pink. I'm not saying bright colors are wrong. But for me, trying to be more quiet and humble is what I believe God is calling me to so I'm trying to watch it. Do you try to dress modestly? If so, how do you do it?
