And the Winner is…

Sarah Kator, of Meridian, Idaho!

Modest by Design Clothing Company has announced the winner of the 5th Annual “Modest Prom Dress Contest”. The winner is Sarah Kator, a senior at Mountain View High School in Meridian, Idaho!

Our Modest Prom Dress Contest has now become an international competition. The judges of the contest chose Sarah’s design from entries received from around the world. Her design, entitled “Luck Be a Lady,” features a black and white fitted striped satin bodice and short sleeves, with a full black satin skirt.

Entrants also submitted an essay entitled “Why I think it is important to dress modestly.” Half of their overall score came from the essay, and Sarah’s essay shined through. The last line of her essay reads “It is so much easier to act, feel, and be treated like a daughter of God when I already look the part.”

As the Grand Prize Winner of the contest, Sarah will receive the gown she designed, sewn by an expert seamstress just for her. She will also receive her accessories and shoes, a makeover and a photo shoot. Sarah will be surprised at School on Friday the 7th!

The runners-up are Natasha Beers of South Jordan, Utah; Shannon Sparks of Concord, North Carolina; Joy Hudspeth of Salina, Utah; and Kara Paisson of Tokyo, Japan!

The winners will be announced at the 3rd Annual “Modesty In Motion” Fashion Show. The Show will be at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, Utah on January 8th at 12 noon and 2:30 pm, and will present the company’s 2005 Prom and Casuals lines. The winner’s design and essay will also be available to see on the companies web-site

I would like you to compare the prices, lengths, colors, styles, why they add extra money for XL’s, from alll the companies that specialize is modest t-shirts. Such as Coverwear, Dress Modestly, Impel Clothing, Mod Bod, Shade Clothing, Kate’s Camisoles. That would be great , if you truly are a magazine that just doesn’t include those that advertise with you.

Sorry, I haven’t had time to do something like that yet. I’m just one person doing all of this, and I’m a wife and soon to be mother too!

I have purchased from a few of those companies (Shade, The Mod Bod, & Mod Be.) I can tell you that The Mod Bod seems to have the best quality shirts. They are heavier fabric, they didn’t shrink or fade when washed, and their seams/edges along the bottom and sleeves are finished – unlike the others, who leave a raw edge along the bottom and around the sleeves. The shirts just look like a better product when their edges are finished! And – with the edges “finished,” you can wear their shirts as regular shirts, not just undergarments. Also, (if you live in Utah) you can buy from The Mod Bod at one of their “Open Houses” and save the cost of shipping! (Who doesn’t love to save a few bucks?) I highly recommend trying The Mod Bod.

I am 6 feet tall and have had a really hard time finding shirts that are long enough. I finally found a company that sells them long and really good quality. They don’t ball up, loose their shape or cost an arm and leg…they also do home shows (open house style so you are not their all night!) They are awesome…it is Diviine ModesTee…they even sell in Canada so I can get them!
