 Question about wearing modest jeans?

Edit: I wanted to come back and edit this post so that it would be fine for whomever to read. I do not want to cause anyone to stumble or sin with what I posted. Thank you for sharing with me everyone.
God Bless

Greetings
I have a question concerning modesty and clothing. I know with everything going on in the world right now that this may not seem like a real big deal but I am in need of advice from any sisters or even if a brother who wants to ask his wife for me. Where and what brand of jeans can a female who is concerned with modesty go and buy. I am so sick of having to return clothes because they are not what they say they are. I just bought another pair of jeans that said on the tag, classic fit, sits at the waist, but were not what they said they were. Any thoughts sisters? I really want to dress with a modest heart and attitude. I feel very strongly about this but am at a loss at this point?? Is it just me or is it getting more difficult to find clothing that actually covers the body in a modest way.

Thanks and God Bless
Maryjane

 Re: Question about wearing modest jeans?

This is just a thought, but have you tried buying jeans that are made for men? They are going to be cut differently and may fit more appropriately.

 Re: Question about wearing modest jeans?

God bless you mj!! i love to see women actually desiring to be modest, it is rare and a joy.

i recommend buying jeans, shirts, and all clothes a size or two too big. then it doesn't cling at all. that's how i wear all mine, and one godly man in my life even told me he was glad i do as we were discussing modesty one evening. i feel this honors men and our precious Lord.

when i talk with women about modesty, i share my heart with them that modesty is loving the Lord in action, and it is honoring men in action. do we love the Lord, and our brothers, more than we love to "look good"? we are called to honor our hasbands, if the Lord should grant such a thing, and a godly husband does not want all the other men to see what is only his. that is his specail secret treasure. and whether or not we are married, we need to honor other men and not tempt them with our bodies. plus, our bodies really aren't ours, they belong to the Lord and to one man, if God should grant it.

that is my heart for modesty, we were bought with very precious blood, let us not use our freedom as a cover for evil.

God bless you for asking, truly...

hope that helps, love you, and i'm grateful this is on your heart.

 Re: Question about wearing modest jeans?

Dear MaryJane,

Have you considered trying them on before you take them home?

Personally, all of our clothes come from yard sales, flea markets and thrift stores and even most of these allow you to try them on if you ask. But the price allows to buy without trying. As much as gasoline costs and the wear and tear on us having to drive back and forth has taught us the prudence of trying on clothing and pluging in any electric thing we buy. Just the other day we were considering a portable short wave radio at Radio Shack. They only had the floor model and guaranteed it worked - it didn't when we made them plug it in.

I only wear pants when doing heavy work in the yard. Like the last two days I have been helping my husband work on the tires to our old camper. We have to move it to cut some trees and they all had gone flat. Today, I used the tiller in the front garden spot. The pants I wore were bought 6 years ago at a yard sale. They have elastic waist and are generous enough to accommodate me in thin and thick times.

In my experience, I wear what the Lord has provided. He put those slacks on the table for me 6 years ago. 4 pair at $1 each was something we could afford and I had a great need for them.

You posted you were trying you best to get out of debt. Put the price of new clothing towards that and buy used, you will reach your goal much quicker.

I am curious why you did not ask this question in a PM to the women on this forum? Discussing the fit of jeans is more 'woman's talk' than forum. You were speaking of trying to be modest and actually went on to discuss immodest things.

Kind regards,
white stone

God bless you and your obedience to the Lord MaryJane. It is great to see sisters who care more for the Lord then for themselves.

 Re:

Greetings White stone

First let me start off by saying that I did not PM this to the women because it did not occur to me that asking about where to buy jeans was an immodest question. If this question is offenses or has cause anyone to stumble then I am very sorry and I will remove the post. It was not my intention to cause any problems with anyone. I will be praying about this as in all honesty I am not sure that I still see how this was an immodest post but I do want to be open to hear from Father.
Thank your for sharing your heart with me and thank you to everyone else for your thoughts as well,some good advice to consider.

God Bless you
MJ

 Re:

This is refreshing. We house church, but when we visit a traditional church my wife and I often cringe at the way some women are dressed... and it's not just because I have to look away, but we have 2 younger teenage boys who have discovered the opposite sex.

Also I would love to know where I can buy jeans that are not made of stretch material that almost clings to the form.



Dear MaryJane,

You replied to one of the points I brought up, what about not buying new and putting the money towards your debt?

I am being realistic, are you? This is more of what you should ask God, not if your post was modest or not. I have been praying for you to be free from debt and it hurts me to think you are not pinching pennies. One can not pray themselves out of debt, at some point God expects you to stop spending.

 Re:

Hi Mary Jane,

I don't really have any suggestions for finding modest jeans...I only wear skirts and on rare occasions I will wear culottes (a pant-skirt) if I'm going to be involved in an activity that requires more freedom in movement. But I can echo the recommendation that thrift stores are a great place to shop!

I know that you started this with just a simple question on jeans...but I hope that you won't mind if I share a few good resources on the topic of modesty.
You might find some helpful advice on advice in this thread http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=15387&forum=35&100 I was trying to think of good discussions that we've had on this topic and that one came to mind.

There is also a series by Nancy Leigh DeMoss on modesty that is excellent! It is called Does God Really Care What I Wear? The first broadcast is at this link: http://www.reviveourhearts.com/radio/roh/today.php?pid=971 (click 'next' to go to the second broadcast)

As has already been expressed, it's such a blessing to hear sisters in the Lord express a desire to dress modestly. Thank you, sister! May the Lord Jesus give you wisdom and discernment as you seek to honor Him in this area of your life!

~Joy
