BODEN A Modest Clothing Company

Modesty is one of those subjects that many people have passionate opinions about and so I am so happy to present to you today a store Boden, a modest clothing company.  

If you want talk about something controversial then Modesty is your issue.

Modesty is a real challenge for believers in this American culture!

This post is not about right or wrong but rather an example of how one Christian family has addressed the issue.

This will also begin a series on MODEST CLOTHING STORES.

We base our family modesty policy on what the Bible says about two things…modesty and what God considers nakedness.

We wear pants, but as my husband says they must have “wrinkles” and our shirts cover our gluteus maximus. We wear our skirts to our knees and wear high heels with full skirts and flats with pencil skirts.  We may go a little shorter on skirts if we are wearing thick tights.  I pray this will be a help to those who are contemplating  “the great matter”.

Now, on to the fun part!  Fall is approaching and what better time to think about fashion.

Let me introduce you to a wonderfully modest clothing company BODEN.

The girls in our family love BODEN because they offer FUN, fashionable, modest clothing options.  Not everything in the catalogue is modest but we find that the majority are or can be made modest by adding a tank top underneath.

BODEN offers great service!  We have had to return items because the garment ordered did not fit correctly.   The return went smoothly and quickly.  We personally have never had any problems!

The clothing offered is made of good quality and long-lasting fabric. BODEN’S clothing lasts!  The fashion that is represented is classic, so that your purchase will last for years and years and still be “in style.”

I hope you enjoy looking at all the great products BODEN offers!

    GREAT post! I will have to check out BODEN. I’m always looking for a place where I can find longer skirts! I also wear skirts to my knees, and cover cleavage! I am also more comfortable with sleeves. Very inspiring.

      Thanks Kristie,
      I really appreciate your comment! With 4 daughters we have really talked about these issues a lot 🙂 I am so thankful that the Bible speaks to these things and we are not left on our own in this area.

    We are missionaries to Puerto Rico and have been struggling a little with the modesty issue since coming here. Skin is so much more permissable here… skirts and shorts are shorter, tops are smaller, bikinis are so normal, our one peice bathing suits are considered weird.
    Our duaghter is 13 and is actually very modest in nature and understands the importance… but becuase it is not a big deal to see someone minister in church in a strapless dress, or a skirt that isnt to the knees, her ideas of modest attire have begun to shift.
    Thanks for the link to Boden… I am always interested in new places to find modest attire.

      Hi Dana,
      I am so glad to hear from you! My husband and I have served on short term mission trips to Honduras over the past 10 years and we have seen the very same thing in the Latin Church. We are all learning to conform every area of our lives to Christ’s ways…I know I am still learning every single day! I am so glad you found the post helpful! Thank you for serving our Lord full time in the field!

    I am all for modesty but for the life of me cant imagine why wearing high heels with a full skirt would be modest but only flats with a pencil would work? They are just shoes. I might be scandalous because I wear sandals most of the year (California) and have never even considered that that might be modest.

  5. Kristin says:

    I love the “pairing” ideas for modesty…like high heels with full skirts and flats with pencil skirts. There is so much to consider for women trying to be truly modest, yet still express some femininity. I am a pastor’s wife with three teen daughters…we are always in search of modest, yet stylish ideas.
