Maria wrote:What constitutes modest clothing in church or even that worn to stores and public places?
Clothing that is respectful and clean, humble, and becoming of an Orthodox Christian.
Clothing that does not reveal the body, such as low cut blouses, sleeveless blouses or muscle T-shirts, short skirts above the knees, or short shorts.
Clothing that does not send a message: For example, a T-shirt with an advertisement, cartoon, or political message is not appropriate. Wearing rainbow colors is also not appropriate as that may show support of the Rainbow Coalition. Designer jeans with holes or slashes in the fabric are also not appropriate.
Clothing that does not draw attention. For example, a Halloween costume worn to church in anticipation of the costume party afterwards.
Clothing that is not extremely fitted to reveal the figure, and again, draw attention. For example. tights and leggings worn without a modest length skirt to cover them.
Clothing that is not too bright. For example, a bright red dress on Holy Friday would stand out because most people would be wearing somber blues, browns, and blacks.
This is a list I would expect to find on an Orthodox website, unfortunately as said above, the World and some True Orthodox have been disturbed by these innovative practices. Even ROCOR-MP has giving into the new temptation. Men and women alike in ROCOR-MP have started to wear more secular clothing to church, but at least they have women wear the veil.
