Kosher Casual modest clothing for the modern lifestyle

Find trendy skirts, three-quarter sleeve knit tops and accessories to add modesty to outfits from this Israel-based manufacturer. Also look for a collection of running skirts, some with built-in leggings underneath, as an alternative to culottes.

Vintage Hem, a slip for adding length to skirts

These slips with decorative hems are intended to show underneath skirts to add below-the-knee lengths of 27" to 29." Designer Jennifer Young writes, "The idea occurred to me that I could embellish my hemline as well as creating one slip that would add trendy layers and much-needed length to my skirts and dresses."

CoverMe Neckline Inserts

Velcro straps attach this flat piece of fabric to the bra straps at the top, and the fabric is then tucked underneath the bra band below the bust to stay in place. A swimwear option is offered that must be sewn into the swimsuit to stay in place in the water.

Cleavage Cover Ups

These triangular pieces of fabric, available to blend in with everything from casual to bridal wear, are attached to clothing using removable, double-stick adhesive strips. Designer Lisa Leitch explains her inspiration, "It's often too hot or too bulky to wear another shirt underneath, and I was tired of safety pins ripping my garments. I always saw my blouses as missing a piece in the cleavage area . . . so I made the missing piece!"

Extra Button to add higher closure at the neck and to prevent gaping on blouse openings

Use these decorative pins to add closure to tops that need an extra button near the neckline or to prevent gaping at the bustline on front button closures. Any high-quality brand of double-stick tape can be used for a similar purpose with front-button shirts, though the pin may hold more securely on some fabrics.

Miss Oops! Products to help add modesty

Miss Oops! offers several products to add modesty to outfits, such as double-sided clear apparel tape that may be used in between buttons to prevent gaping and around necklines to keep straps from showing. Also look for stylish fabric tubes for the neckline and waistline to add coverage underneath short or low-cut tops.

Cami Secret

Clips attach this fabric panel to the bra straps. While ads claim that the panel may be adjusted higher or lower to control coverage, in reality the panel tends to slide downward to rest on the tops of the bra cups. Another drawback is that the fabric is thin like a slip, so lighter colors are semi-translucent.

Primo Moda Arm Sleeves

Turn a short-sleeved top into a long-sleeved one without wearing a full underlayer using these stretch knit sleeve extensions made of rayon (originating from cotton fiber) and Lycra spandex. Four colors are available.

Dr. Leonard's Dickies

This company stocks several dickey styles. The apparel section of this site offers a variety of other modest options that may be of interest to shoppers looking for basic styles.

David's Bridal Coverage Options

Cute jackets and add-on sleeves in varying lengths are featured in the Coverage Options section of the David's Bridal website, a retailer with over 300 store locations in the United States and Puerto Rico.

Zkali-RaggZ hemline layers for adding length to help cover low-rise waistlines

These stretch tubes are designed to add length to hemlines to help cover low-rise waistlines.

Bolero Jackets from Amazon

Add sleeves and shoulder coverage to formal dresses with affordable boleros in many styles and colors from Amazon. One bride we know asked her bridesmaids to each choose their own dress in the same color to wear underneath matching boleros for a coordinated yet custom effect.
