I was raised in the Baptist faith, and their idea of modesty is much stricter than the Church’s. Two piece bathing suits were considered very sinful.

I struggle with knowing if something is modest or not, and I’ll often be wearing something in the house that I think would only be appropiate in the house, and my husband will comment that it’s modest enough to wear in public. Then there’s times where I’ll be wearing something that would be modest in public, but not in church.

I’m glad to have a husband who is very honest with me, and has a good sense of what modesty on a woman looks like!
