I agree that skin is not bad, and I'm not offended by women who dress like this in church, but it just struck me as odd since I'm more accustomed to 'modest attire' being worn at church.

I, for one, wouldn't feel comfortable showing skin at church. I wouldn't be able to dress for church the same way that I dress to go out to a bar or a club.

I'm sure if I wore a midriff shirt to church, several older people would pass out and I'd get thrown out immediately.

What if you went to my church where many women dress this way and nobody thinks twice? I think you would feel comfortable because you would fit right in.

Plus, even though I don't hate my legs, I'm not as proud of them as I am of my abs, so I'm really not tempted to put on a short skirt very often. Also, for me personally, the situation I'm in will dictate how much skin to show. If I'm in the grocery store, for instance, I'll usually dress in a t-shirt and jeans/track pants, but if I'm going out with friends, I'll show more skin and, depending on the type of place it is, I'll wear the appropriate clothing (i.e. I won't wear a midriff wife beater to a classy martini bar; I'll wear a more dressy white button-down shirt and tie it in the front an inch or two above my navel while wearing either dressy pants or nice jeans)...


Spoken from an absolutely gorgeous woman who knows how to dress!

In some cases I have seen, not really. You can see areola from the low cut shirts, and if their butt crease is showing, then their vagina is also on display to an extent, and NO minor needs to dress like that, and yes it IS whorish.
