> 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:

http://www.blindedchristianeyes.blogspot.com/2007/04/modest-dress.html

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

http://www.quakerjane.com/

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

In the link to the clothing above, the first 8 or so pictures are very commoon in my part of the US. If I go to the mall or the movies, I wouldn't blink if I saw a lady dressed in those clothes. Now the bottom pictures would probably draw a curuious look. I see the first pics all the time, the bottom pics seldom (can't recall the last time I saw someone dressed that way).

Hope this helps,
Merry Christmas

thanks,
