I believe that the way we women are dressed (or undressed) when we go out in public is an important issue, and that several biblical principles support this viewpoint. The first is 1 Corinthians 10:32, which says, "Do not cause anyone to stumble." Pretty simple. What it basically proves is that it is our problem if men in our church have trouble keeping their minds on God because of our choice in fashions. Our feminine desire to be thought attractive must come second to helping men keep their thoughts pure.
That's love. Putting the interests of "other" before the interests of "me". And in no way does that necessitate being unattractive. In most cases, immodest apparel is not the most artistic presentation; but the female form is intrinsically beautiful and can always be used to get attention. Is that the kind of attention you want?
