Our daughter is in my father's upcoming wedding, and trying to find a nice dress that wasn't too short, skimpy or low cut was nearly impossible. The picture above is what we ended up getting. What worked in my favor is that our daughter is very petite, so the "short" dresses weren't always too short on her. At least thank goodness the jewelry was easy to choose in comparison (I love to look at jewelry, I could browse jewelry flyers or check out the jewelry deal of the day every day, lol!). Although in the one store they had rhinestone covered flasks. For real!
I can't possibly be the only one that would like to find fashionable clothes for my teen that are on the modest side???? At least when she was still in girls/tween clothing, it wasn't as hard to find styles that weren't too sexy, but GOOD GOLLY, now that's she's getting into junior sizing, much of the clothing is so TRAMPY. I'm sorry, YES, trampy! Low cut everything seems to be the current style. Doesn't anyone make modest trendy clothes for juniors? I mean, I'm not talking turtlenecks and ankle length skirts, but shorts that aren't too short and tops that aren't too skimpy and cut low - how about that??? When she was little I could buy LL Bean and Lands End but now that she's a teen, she wants clothes that are more trendy, you know? And I don't blame her...I was a teen once too, back in the dark ages.
On the bright side our daughter doesn't want to dress immodestly, so at least I'm only up against the clothing stores and not her! :-)
