Here are some references on the lost art of Modesty:

Carolyn Mahaney and her daughters wrote some articles for Crosswalk, titled: Fashion and Following the Savior: part one, part two, part three.

A sermon by CJ Mahaney titles The Soul of Modesty. This was the basis for the articles above.

Brett and Alex Harris, of The Rebelution conducted a survey called the Modesty Survey.

I highly recommend that all women do a Modesty Heart Check:
Modesty Heart Check

Modesty on Your Wedding Day

And though it be their sin and vanity that is the cause [of lust], it is nevertheless your sin to be the unnecessary occasion…You must not lay a stumbling-block in their way, nor blow up the fire of their lust…You must walk among sinful persons as you would do with a candle among straw or gunpowder; or else you may see the flame which you did not foresee, when it is too late to quench it.
--Richard Baxter

Modesty needs addressed WAY more often.
As a Christian, I've always thought this. But, after becoming the father of a daughter (after 3 boys), I really see now how important it is.
Thanks for the nuggets of info!

I agree with being modest. Even us forty-somethings need to be modest! Thanks for sharing these things with us.
