Modesty alert

By Leila (articles ) | Jun 08, 2004

At last, some sign that women are tired of being uncomfortable and exposed -- in more ways than one.

Now if we can wise up to the scam of charging full price for a dress that doesn't have sleeves, a back, or a middle.... Fashion? yeah, right...

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    There was one disturbing note in the Times article. When the young lady said the dress she chose was classy, her mom could be heard hooting in the background---with apparent ridicule. Not the reaction of a good mother (if a father of three may opine). All the more credit to the girl!

    Nice catch Leila! When the girls' coverage decreases, their sexual insecurity increases, leading some eventually to their Return to Modesty. As for the price of things, I must leave that one untouched.

    I just hope this trend makes it to the high school I teach at by fall. Having worn Izods, Polos and Topsiders (and a decent haircut) when I was a student in the '80s, I have been longing for the death of the trash fashions that have made me a hallway clothing cop for the past several years. Fashions are cyclical and trash will make a comeback, but it would be nice to have a few years' respite.
