Exclamation

Any only Skirt/Dress wearing mommies?


Anyone else only wear skirts/dresses? Was your choice to do so religious or for modesty, etc? If you have little girls do you have them wear skirts/dresses too?

I only wear skirts/dresses and so does DD1 and DD2. Mine is religious/modesty related. I LOVE a cute T or sweater and an ankle length flowing skirt!!!

I went to a United Pentecostal Church and they did. But personally, I could never bring myself to do that. I've never been one for skirts or dresses. If you enjoy it then that's great! What is the religious part of it for you? I never really understood why they only wore skirts, could you enlighten me?

We do

Deuteronomy 22:5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

I was not raised in Church but started to going to church after we got married. We always dressed modestly and thought we could without going to all skirts. Then our now 6 year old started looking less like a baby and her clothes started looking more like teen clothes! I couldn't find decent clothes ANYWHERE! after a few years of struggling with what to do, we really felt that it was white or black, wrong or right, and that skirts and dresses were Godly and modest and we never had to worry if we were "causing our brother to stumble" by our attire...Of course we only wear long skirts, nothing above the knee and I am careful about the skirts we wear also.

What a gorgeous family you have Rachael

Yes that's my view too. I always ask my husband if what I'm wearing is appropriate before wearing anything new. Some things I've felt were modest enough he hasn't agreed with so they've either had to become "at home only" clothes (which works until we have older children to set an example for) or be returned cause it's not just the length of the skirt that matters.

And modesty doesn't have to mean frumpy either. Plus I love how feminine wearing skirts and dresses makes me feel Oh, I do wear culottes too.

I'm not sure at what age we'll dress our daughter in skirts/dresses but we'll play it by ear as she grows.

Thank you!!! We are very blessed with precious children!!!

About the age, skirts can be challenging at time with little ones. We have about 25 stairs at our house and as our 15 month old climbs them, she gets caught on her dress sometimes. (talk about mommy having a heart attack!!! )We do only let her wear dresses out in public and stuff but at home, she wears pants. Not jeans, just soft pants. Potty training is also a challenge with dresses. Falls in the toilet so easily when a little one is not use to holding it up. Plus little ones (2 and under) still look like a baby so we do not feel that "only skirts 24-7" are that important before potty training. Our 2 year old does wear skirts or dresses a lot, as she asks too. She loves dresses like her big sisters and mommy

My three daughters and I wear only skirts and dresses, as per Deut 32:5. I also wear a headcovering as per 1 Cor. 16. We have soft pants that we wear underneath our skirts and dresses in cold weather, and my girls wear soft shorts underneath when they play outside. I homeschool our four children, ages 8, 6, 5, and 3, and we are expecting our fourth blessing in November.

Hi

I am a muslim mummy and I cover myself.
I wear what is called an abaya: a long dress that you pus on top of your normal clothing, and a head covering (i used to wear a headscarf but now I wear a long covering on tops of my abaya that goes up tu my wrists. And I also wear a face veil in front of men, but not women.
It is for religious and modesty puspose (by the way I am a revert to Islam).
I havent got any daughter (yet)
