Recently I was watching a video on YouTube. It showed a woman who claimed to be a Christian, but she dressed in revealing clothes. The speaker then asked her how she could claim to be a Christian when she dressed immodestly. She answered that it’s what made her feel beautiful and empowered. That’s when I began thinking about the differences between modesty in Christianity and the culture we live in today.
How Should A Christian Dress?
1. Know Your Body Type
Before you can dress according to your body type, it’s important to know what type of body you have. A good place to start is by looking at the mirror and taking a good look at yourself. Do you have an hourglass figure? Are you more top-heavy? Or do you have muscular legs and a smaller waist? These are all things that need to be considered when choosing an outfit that suits your body shape. Once this is determined, make a list of what clothing works best for each part of your body (your waistline, hips, and bust) along with any other features that may need special attention when dressing for church or work such as high heels or pants with stretch material for comfort during long days on feet in heels).
2. Your Style Is Your Own and Reflects Your Personality.
Your style is unique to you, and it must reflect your personality. However, it’s also important that you dress in a way that suits the weather. If you’re too hot or too cold, then your comfort level will be affected and this can lead to distraction from worshiping God.
You should ensure that your clothes are neither too hot nor too cold. This can be achieved by choosing suitable fabrics for each season of the year. For example, cotton is suitable for summer months but may not be appropriate during colder months of winter because it doesn’t keep heat well enough.
3. Do Not Show Flesh
- You should wear clothes that cover your flesh.
- God said to wear clothes, so you should do it.
- Do not show flesh to men, women, kids, and yourself when you dress for church.
4. You Don’t Have to Wear Black every day.
It is true that black is a sober colour. However, you should not think that you have to wear it every day. A good example of this is the story of how during World War II American soldiers were given white shirts to wear under their uniforms so that when they were wounded and lying on the battlefield, they would be easily seen by medics.
White also signifies purity and innocence, which are things we all need when we are feeling down in the dumps or going through tough times. Green is a sign of hope and new life while yellow represents joyfulness and happiness. Black represents death but it doesn’t mean you can’t dress in any other colors! Red symbolizes love, passion, anger or desire; however if your face turns red from embarrassment then it means you’re blushing out of shame for doing something wrong – unless someone compliments you then there shouldn’t be any reason for them being able to see your face!
5. You Can Still Wear Your Trendy Brand.

You can still wear a trendy designer, but it’s not about the brand for them; it’s about their clothing and how they look in it that matters most to them. They are trying to be stylish, not necessarily fashionable – at least not in the same way as someone who follows fashion trends religiously might be considered by others as being ‘fashionable’ or having good taste in clothes and accessories like sunglasses, shoes etcetera…
6. Stay Away from Short Dresses and Pants
It is important to remember that our clothing sends a message about who we are. The way we dress can reveal our true character and faith, or it can completely misrepresent both. It’s easy for us to get caught up in the wrong things, especially when it comes to what we wear.
The Bible tells us to dress modestly and not attract attention for the wrong reasons (1 Timothy 2:9-10; 1 Peter 3:3). In other words, stay away from short dresses and pants that show flesh—they aren’t appropriate for Christian women. Skirts should be knee-length if worn alone or below the knee if they’re worn with leggings or tights underneath them because short skirts are often too revealing (1 Timothy 2:9).
When choosing a shirt/blouse, choose one that covers your stomach area so that no skin shows through (1 Timothy 2:9). For example, sleeveless shirts should only be worn under jackets rather than on their own because they show too much of your body when worn by themselves—especially when you bend down!
7. Ensure You Are Comfortable with What You’re Wearing.
As a Christian woman, you should dress in a way that is attractive and appealing to others. You should also dress in a way that makes you feel comfortable with yourself. If you are wearing clothes that do not make you feel good about yourself, then it might be time to reevaluate what type of clothing fits your personal style and personality.
If you want to wear jeans and t-shirts every day, then there is nothing wrong with doing so as long as they fit properly and do not look worn down or dirty. However, if this is not true about the clothing items in question then it would probably be best for someone else’s opinion on whether or not they would consider themselves “dressed up” wearing them instead of their own opinion since everyone has different opinions based on their preferences when deciding what constitutes being dressed up versus being dressed down.”
8. Look Simple and Modest
In the same way, Christian women should dress in a way that pleases God. We should also consider how we would feel about how we look if our husbands or fathers were to see us (and, for that matter, how our mothers and sisters would feel seeing us). Would they be pleased? Would our appearance cause them to think more highly of the gospel message? And finally, do we want to offer an example of godly femininity to those around us?
The best way to dress modestly is simply by looking at what people around you are wearing and not going out of your way to wear something different. If an outfit has a plunging neckline or high-cut leg holes then it probably isn’t suitable for church—or anywhere else outside of your bedroom!
Hopefully, this article has been a helpful starting place for you. It’s important to remember that there is no “one size fits all” approach here. You should pray and seek God’s wisdom on how He would have you dress each day, and don’t let yourself feel pressured by other people or the world around you. Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, so be sure to honor God with everything about it!
