Seriously?
I'll agree we ladies have to stop feeding the attention grabbing, lust provoking fashion industry. Give the guys a fighting chance to keep the thoughts pure. But when the writer starts saying things like 'cover your chest when you bend down' and 'keep your legs closed even when you're wearing jeans'??? Um, that may be crossing over the line. I can (and should) control what others see when they look at me. I cannot (and should not be expected to) be responsible for their thoughts.

Ever since I traded my not so modest clothing to clothing according to the Marylike Standards, I have had no yucky pervy men after me and men overall show an increased respect towards me. But most importantly, I feel better because I now respect myself and treat my body as a holy temple and am thankful to God that it is healthy and beautiful. I have no need to seek attention with immodest dress. I have stopped wearing pants/trousers/jeans/leggings and sporty casual outfit since it makes me feel masculine and that just feels wrong to me. I feel much more comfortable in a long skirt or long dress. It is pure freedom compared to what I used to wear. This is just a testimony I'd like to share.

1) I agree that we, i.e. all Christians, should dress modestly, but this guy struck me as being a little OCD about it.
2) I can't yawn in such a way that my breasts don't protrude. My breasts always protrude. They're breasts. They're large. It's in their nature. I just wear modest shirts all the time.

Oh my goodness!!!!!! I definitely agree that modesty is important and I am definitely more of a conservative dresser but I'd have to be wearing a bag over my clothing if I did e everything he's suggesting!!!!! Some stuff isn't controllable like the yawning thing!!!! And nevermind the kind of wirk I do which involves working with patients where I constantly have to bend etc!!!! Lol. Like someone else said... A little OCD!!!!

This person seems obsessive. Let's see......Is he obsessive in catching the ladies dress immodestly to warn, teach and enlightening men and women OR......Is he obsessive in collecting evidence for his research?? He certainly has gotten an eyeful when "collecting" his evidence. I wonder how many weeks he spent on his research..and I wonder how much enjoyment he received in watching the immodest and misbehaving women???

My point is: Did he do this research to alert people to immodest dress? OR.....Did he do this research so he can have "permission" to watch, follow, and watch some more of immodestly dressed women?

A woman who respects herself does dress modestly. Being in the presence of someone who does not demonstrate good judgment in this regard can be uncomfortable.

However, maybe if 50% of men chose to not watch the pornography that they are watching, they they might not get impure thoughts by being in the presence of a woman who yawns, or who has to bend over to pick up something, which includes school teachers, nurses, office workers, department store employees, and moms whose child has dropped a rattle or a soother.

Most men don't know this, because they usually don't buy bras, but his advice about buying a bra that does not show through clothing is not practical. Only a coat worn over an outfit will hide the fact that a woman is wearing one. The form of the straps (either in the back or on the shoulders) will almost always show through in one way or another in a blouse, T-shirt, sweater, polo shirt or dress. And some bras have seams because that is how they are made, and a fuller figured woman may have to (yes, have to) buy and wear one with seams in order to be comfortable. By the way, it is also impossible for a man to wear an undershirt that does not show through his dress shirt either, so that will give you an indication of how hard it is to hide the fact that clothing is layered with garments on top of undergarments.

The blogger, while perhaps well-intentioned, is spending too much time thinking about other people's underwear, IMHO.

You are free to turn your head in the opposite direction if a woman yawns and you are in danger of impure thoughts. A yawn is an involuntary gesture. Should women avoid hiccups because the chest heaves at those moments also? Sorry, but it is not possible to stop yawns or hiccups. It is possible to look away if that bothers you, though. Just my two cents.
