Wearing casual modest clothes is not always comfortable, we find nice shirt but we have to layer it to make it modest, wearing skirt, we have to sit in certain way, when it’s hot outside we prefer not to go out, wearing full headscarf sometimes give me headache after long day and those who wear wigs will tell you how uncomfortable and itchy it can be.
To begin with it is hard for us to find nice casual modest clothes. At retailers we have to go through everything in store just to find few suitable garments. Online, when looking for “frum fashion” or “modest clothes” most of the websites that shows are dedicated to sell modest fashion and mostly have very plain, simple and outdated clothes because they have to stick to the most strict modesty rules avoiding controversy that will ruin their reputation and sales.
So what usually happens? Each and every one of us becomes a fashion designer! We make that dress little longer with the closest fabric we could find, fix the sleeves on this top or layer it with base shirt, cut fabric for head cover to match the outfit and….. Tadaaa!!! what do we get? A very uncomfortable, ridicules outfit!
