> While browsing the net, I come from time to time upon webpages, blogs etc., run by conservative Christians from the States. Among other topics, they give their opinions there about what they do consider as a modest dress. Those opinions vary - but some of those Christians advocate that, for example, women's dress should look like this:

While I'm sure that there are some women that dress like that, most are probably Amish. I certainly wasn't aware that some American think women should dress like that. I know there are a lot of people who feel that women dress to provocatively these days, but I'm not sure if they feel that that's what they should be wearing.

I know about Amish people, but I've also seen on the web other American Christians who are proponents of this kind of dress... For example, the pictures I posted earlier come from a blog written by a woman who is - if I read correctly - Protestant:

Other site I found on the web is, for example, this webpage by a female Quaker:

And there are certainly more. So, I really wondered, how common those views are in America?
