Modesty Listings

Here is a list of sites that have modest clothing. Please keep in mind that not everything on each site will be modest, but each site will have at least some things that are modest. These sites will include merchants of other faiths, but you may be pleasantly surprised and find just what you are looking for. Also, please keep in mind that everyone has different ideas about what modesty entails. With that in mind, there is also a list of recommended reading following the website listing.

Ohhhh, pretty please do a book review on at least some of those books! I read A Return to Modesty and thought it was great. We could even do it together if you want! I know others who have read it (Samantha, I think) and might be interested too. E-mail me if you'd want to do something like that (discernthetimes at yahoo dot com).

I love the skirts and scarves at Tznius...they just got some new stuff in for Spring. :)

Thank you for this list. Like Kristen, I read A Return to Modesty and thought it was great, too.
