Within the confines of Christian modesty, how does the Christian girl determine how she is to present herself physically to the world? Should this be discussed in terms of different interpretations of what the Bible says about modesty? Where does culture come into play? Does modesty encompass more than the covering of the body? Does drawing attention to oneself in order to dress in a way that is not culturally “normal” make you immodest (for instance, wearing floor length Jane Austen gowns to the supermarket, or wearing make-up that may be traditional in other cultures, but not in ours, to work)?

How do you define what it means to be feminine and modest in our culture? Upon what do you base your conclusions?
