Modesty in young women's clothing is getting a boost from the dismal economy.

When consumer spending was in overdrive, retailers could sell to the masses and ignore the more muted voices asking for, say, a decent supply of sleeved shirts or prom dresses that show more fabric than skin.

Retailers widen options, including more modest clothes - USATODAY.com

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

I am so glad. Notice the little girls in the front seem to love it. But the girls in the back look like they are thinking "I dont want to dress like mom. Ew"
LOL

Finally!!
I can't tell you how horrible it is to shop for girls once they leave the 2T -6X sizes. Once they hit little girl size 7 and above suddenly the fabrics become thin and silky, the skirts get shorter and tighter and good luck finding an actual sleeve.
Yes, retailers -- there are mothers out there that do not want to dress our children as Bratz Dolls.

Seriously. I didn't realize how shockingly abysmal girls' clothing had become until my niece grew out of those little girl sizes; all of a sudden it seemed like the clothes in her new sizes were designed for miniature hookers.
