As you know, I'm passionate about modesty. Truly, I can't think of anything that would glorify, uplift, and enhance sweet beautiful femininity more than being modest, inside and out. Modesty also helps to make a woman respected, valued and cherished by men and women of all ages.
In my photos, you can see I dress by Orthodox Jewish standards - I wear long skirts, my elbows are always covered, my clothes are not too tight, and when I got married I started to cover my hair.
However, that's what happens when I go out. At home, alone or with my husband, I allow myself to relax my standards. I can wear a skirt that is shorter than normal, or even a pair of slacks and a sleeveless shirt, and I don't wear a hair covering. My husband likes it that way. While I'm visiting my mother, I might also change into something lighter.
Recently, I started thinking about what is the right thing to do, regarding modesty, when babies come along and then start growing and reach an age when boys and especially girls must be educated about the importance of modesty. Can I continue relaxing my standards at home? Or will I have to dress at home the same way as outside?
Will my children see it as a sort of hypocrisy, if the moment I come home I shed my long sleeves and hair covering and change into something more comfortable?
Or will it, on the contrary, convey a positive message: you can reveal your beauty in the circle of your family, but not in front of strangers?
... At this point, I truly don't know. I suppose we still have some time to think about it. It would also be lovely to hear from you, ladies with a heart for modesty: is the way you dress at home different from how you dress outside the home? What sort of message do you think it gives the children?
