It was a treat in 2012 to receive a message from Jessie Martinez, a dad who had read some of the information about modest clothing on the Fashion Belle website and wrote to thank us. His perspective on the cultural pressures young women face and his plans for engaging his own and other families in instilling positive values in girls from early ages so impressed me that I wanted to share his message here. When I asked for permission to publish his email, he wrote, "Absolutely. Feel free to re-post my message in your site's forum. I am delighted that you think it may benefit your readers. .

It is no surprise that immodest clothing intended as daywear for women is pervasively marketed in Western cultures. However, a new study released by Kenyon College researchers documents the trend of pushing elements of this type of styling into the category of girls' clothing. The study examined pre-adolescent clothing that is marketed online in the United States and found that around 30% of items had some type of sexualizing characteristic that would traditionally be considered inappropriate for daytime wear, especially for a girl whose figure had not yet matured.

Why Designer Clothing Favors Modesty

It is common for designers who produce lines with each piece selling for several hundred to tens of thousands of dollars to include more elements of modesty within their collections than lower-priced labels targeted just to teenage or young adult female customers. One reason is that extra fabric for coverage simply costs more. Designer fashion accommodates a generous budget for fabric, making the addition of extra yardage for modest coverage an easy task. Skimpy styles require less fabric and are therefore cheaper to produce. Thick fabrics and styles with linings are also expensive.
