Modesty and Sobriety

Do women still adorn themselves in proper clothing with modesty (shamefastness, bound by an honorable shame, not forward or overbold but moderate, observing the proprieties of womanhood) and sobriety (self-restraint, restricting oneself soberly and discreetly), or are these virtues already lost in today's society?

In some cases 2timothy, yes. In most cases and in today's society, no, I don't believe they do. Most of them don't have the priveledge of evening knowing about such an issue. It's an issue that can be taken to both sides of the spectrum. I think many people would say that it's something we don't have to be concerned about these days, but I find it to be very relevent in our walk with God. It's not the outer person we should be so concerned about when it comes to adornment (in both men and women), rather the inner adornment is what should matter most. At least to me.

I agree that what is important is the adornment of the inner being but also stress that inward reality should also match with an outward expression. I do not mean here that we should hypocritically dress in a holy manner with no inward reality, but that dressing that befits the godly reflects one's inner aspiration to be the same inwardly.

I think that these are already lost of today's society in the modern world. As technology is developing and people's attitudes towards society are changing with the ever increasing media urge I think that women always want to be the 'Size 0' figure and they can no longer hold back their ambitions or fears.

I do not consider size to have anything to do with these virtues but with how much covering one should have with their clothing.
