Thank you!
I don't have any trouble find modest clothing at most major stores. You can buy pants and turtle necks at JCrew, Gap, Bloomingdales, Ann Taylor. If the clothes are too tight, you can buy them in large sizes and wear them baggy.

Some of my most favorite skirts growing up had ungodly slits in them. My mother would buy them, and sew on a make-shift patch of matching (or sometimes off-color lace underneath it. They always turned out very pretty. I'm not a huge slit fan. But the lace underneath it always toned it down and made it much more classy afterwards, and you will never run out of options for what to do. Think of it like a dickie, for a skirt!

You might also want to search through the Target racks for modest young lady clothing. Surprisingly, Wal-Mart has improved a great deal with their clothing; it might be another spot for you to peruse through.

Yes, I agree it is difficult shopping for conservative wear since clothing designers are leaning towards immodesty even for teenagers. However, if you really shop around, you might find something appropriate for all of you.

I understand. Most of the clothing in magazines I would never wear, and Wal Mart is just too boring. There are some beautiful clothes at Home Page . They have these wrinkle free clothing, made from some plant fiber and spandex. I like the bias cut top, it looks pretty without a lot of detail. The dresses would be nice for church or the pantsuit depending on your style. Plus you can throw them in the wash. It's cheaper than stores at the mall that's for sure.

I Also have a problem with style and fit that is modest and I am no longer interested in making my clothing as altering is a bummer. I found a new product out there. It is called No More Peeks and now I can buy wrap dresses and blouses and still be covered in the cleavage area. No layering either which is important since I live in AZ and a good part of the year is scorching. Also I can buy a button up blouse that actually fits but would not button over my too large bustline. I just look layered now with the buttons open part way but I am cool and comfortable. Check them out at nomorepeeks.com. They are affordable too and I take them shopping with me. They even do custom work. Happy Hunting.

I'm a Banana Republic girl myself. They carry pretty conservative clothing, and everything is well made.

I would definitley think J. Crew, Banana Republic, any store geared toward professional type clothing. You say that you don't like to show anything above your elbows and calves but is it okay to have tailored clothing? As in, you don't mind showing your feminine shape a little.

I have found that places like academy sports and bass pro shops have modest clothing. one would think they sell all sporty stuff, but they have a lot of casual clothing.
