One Solution for Tight Pants? Long Sweaters!

by Shelley Hitz
(Findlay, Ohio)

This year I've noticed long sweaters are in style. I'm glad because now it's a lot easier to find sweaters that are long enough to cover the back of my tight pants.

I used to think the only thing I needed to be concerned about regarding the waist down was wearing skirts or shorts too short. But, then I became convicted that when I was buying pants, I was concerned with how "cute" my butt looked.

I started to notice that if I was standing behind a group of people and the girls were wearing tight pants, my eyes automatically went to their butt. I began to wonder if that is what happened to other people when they looked at me from behind.

I came to the conclusion that they did. And I decided it was in my best interests to avoid wearing jeans or pants that are too tight or form fitting. Why? It was one more decision I was making to honor God with my body.

My solution? Cute skirts, long shirts, long sweaters, athletic pants that aren't as tight, etc.

You have to decide for yourself what your modesty standards will be...that's between you and God. Read more of my story here:
