Modesty Dress Levels

Christians often discuss the topic of proper dress, and modesty. So that is what I thought of when I read this post from Fragments From Floyd. It actually sounded like a good idea to me: a Christian dress for success chart.

Fragments From Floyd: A Perfect Five

“So I imagine a visual guide for coed dress, like the one for doggy physique.

Below the ideal form in the ONE to THREE categories, in the rare undernourished classification, the description might read thusly: Bony hip bones project several inches above top of slacks at pubic line. Knobby sternum evident in plunging V-cut of blouse; ribs prominent, clevage uncloven. Lumbar vertebrae and shoulder blades apparent from posterior view.

Far more commonly, the deviation from the rare IDEAL LEVEL FIVE is toward the SEVEN to NINE body forms: Bony prominences lacking. Handles d’amour lap over constricting waistband of low-riding slacks. Umbilicus obscured but location suggested within horizontal folds. V-cut reveals what appears to be two bald heads side by side on a bumpy road.

Like Seinfeld noted, there’s good naked and bad naked. In this case, less really can be less. It is a style created for supermodels, adopted by all. Don’t look, Ethel.”

  1. That works:) But at a certain, -ahem- age, one would hope the woman opted for neither.

    Actually, this whole topic cause lots of distress in the church…. I think a picture guide would actually be helpful, since it is, in many senses, simply cultivating taste in the way one dresses. In this case, social intelligence.

    Another way in which what is presented in media just doesn’t line up with the real world.

  2. Matt, -yep, I sort of hijacked the original intent which was both a good point AND funny. Somehow I don’t think many ladies would be so amused with the dog chart, however.

    Mark- so true! Think of the endless discussions that would never have been. It gets ridiculous sometimes, and yet, that doesn’t mean it isn’t a real problem for some people… that’s why I seriously thought the illustrated chart sounded good- you know, the picture that is worth a thousand words 🙂
