Immodesty is a mindset. Girls would rather be in style and in step with the world than look "different" or "out of style." They have been so influenced by the popular clothing that they will suffer freezing weather in winter, then sunburn and insect bites in summer in order to follow the fashion.

"How is your daughter these days?" I asked an acquaintance. "Well, she's doing all right, I suppose," replied her mother. "But her clothes aren't worth mentioning." The daughter had gotten so caught up in fitting in with the fads in fashion that she was wearing "very little."...
