I’d like to take just a moment to address curves. We are blessed as women to have curves in the right places. No matter how skimpy they may be, we are still curvier than men. The Bible instructs women to be “modest” in their dress, but many of my counterparts and their daughters have compromised in this area. This is either a choice to ignore scripture or an attempt to fit in with the current cultural norms.
The unveiling of the female figure began happening again in many places in the world several years ago. According to the world, it now appears to be the acceptable norm. Breast exposure is not a taboo in the Millennium Generation. There is research to support that this generation was simply never told, nor taught, to look at any moral, ethical or possible negative social implications; therefore they do not see it as an issue.
Crimes against women is also recently on the rise. Do you suppose there may be a correlation between our unveiling and the increase in pornography and crimes against women?
There are many experts, aside from the Bible, that support modest dress, particularly in the workplace. A recent study stated that women with low-cut or revealing blouses, short skirts or revealing pants were more often passed over for promotions than those dressed more conservatively.
Women, let’s save our sexy, beautiful curves, for our mate or future mate. We were designed by our creator to be seen in all our glory for their eyes only. Revel in the notion that you’ll share it with no one but them and you will see them blossom with adoration, love and affection.
