Okay, so I talk on various forums, I have been various places, and various churches, but one thing I seem to see in common is that a lot Baptist Women wear certain types of dresses/koulats/skirts. None of which are flattering or attractive. I realize that their main goal is modesty, and that it is very important to them to be modest, and that is completely understandable. However, why wear ugly giant flower prints, or denim skirts that have unflattering shapes, or shirts that are 4 sizes too big? There are plenty of ways to dress very modestly, and in style - and I don't mean wearing shirts that are skin tight, or skirts that are thigh high, but I mean pretty, flattering shirts and dresses. So why is it that a lot of Baptist Women feel the need to make themselves look menonite or Amish in apperance rather than something semi-in-style or attractive? I'm not trying to be rude, so I hope I did not come across as such, I am just truely curious as to their reasons for choice in clothing. Thanks for any input!
