Modest Fashion

Last year we aquired the KneeShorts brand so now we sell shorts for women & men at Jen Clothing. I'm loving our new shorts- we have some really cute ones. Here I'm wearing the Cuffed Stretch-Denim Shorts in Dark Blue. They also come in Black. These pics were also taken by my 7-year old daughter! I'm 35 w/three kids and a few pounds to lose, so these can look good on anyone. 🙂 -Jen modest knee-length shortsmodest knee-length shorts modest knee-length shorts modest knee-length shorts modest knee-length shorts modest knee-length shorts modest knee-length shorts modest knee-length shorts modest knee-length shorts modest knee-length shorts modest knee-length shorts

ModMissWhiteCamiIf you're looking for high-neck camisoles, we don't currently sell them at but you can get good ones at a new place called ModMiss. Their camis have adjustable straps so you can wear them as high on your neckline as you want, or you can lower them to fit your needs. They also add coverage down to your hips to help "mind the gap" between your top and bottoms.

ModMiss was started by Rachel Miller, who was looking for modest layering tops that provided coverage both at the top and the bottom. Rachel says:

"I believe in dressing modestly, which often resulted in frustration when I shopped for clothes. I passed up cute tops because they were too low-cut, sheer, or short waisted. Many of my friends faced the same problem."

Then inspiration struck. "The idea came to me to create modest layering pieces not only for myself, but for others who share this conviction of modesty. After a year of trial and error, the dream has become reality. The right fabric has been found, and the perfect pattern created. My dining room has been transformed into an office, warehouse, and shipping center. I love that I can now walk into a store and buy any top, knowing that if I need the extra coverage, it’s at home in my closet."

ModMissBlackCamiI have one of Rachel's camis and I love the soft stretchy fabric. It has just the right weight- thin enough to be cool in the summertime, and thick enough to be opaque. The length of the cami is also just right. It keeps me covered without being too long and bulky. I've finally been able to wear some cute tops that have been sitting in my closet for too long because they didn't have the coverage I needed!

If you're looking for a cami to keep you covered please consider supporting this great faith-based small business by shopping at -Jen


Duggar wedding partyIf you've got a heartbeat and a smartphone, you've probably heard that Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald, of TLC's 19 Kids & Counting, tied the knot on November 1st! Jessa made headlines with some of her unique choices for the wedding, including an ice cream sundae bar instead of the traditional cake, and her own stunning-yet-modest wedding gown. We were particularly thrilled with her choice of modest bridesmaid dresses…the Ellie dress in Coral from our very own JenClothing


Jessa's eleven bridesmaids ALL looked stunning in this simple, darling dress. The coral color is bright and cheery, and the super-soft jersey knit fabric is oh-so-comfortable! Jessa's sister Jill even rocked the Ellie with her baby bump!

We love this new trend of choosing simple dresses with fun, flirty details for your bridesmaids to wear for the wedding! Then instead of being banished to the back of a closet with a host of other puffy, over-the-top gowns, your girlfriends get to wear their bridesmaid dress from YOUR big day over & over again. These kinds of dresses work great for a day of shopping, attending church or even a night out on the town! Check out the great selection of modest bridesmaid dresses available now at


We want to wish Jessa and Ben the very best as they embark on the adventure known as married life. And we applaud Jessa for her strong faith and her commitment to modesty not only for herself, but her entire bridal party! She is proof that modest IS fashionable and beautiful, and can even be done on a budget.

Aimee Blog PhotoWhen I was a child, my siblings and I had a terrible case of chicken pox. Besides two weeks of misery as the virus worked its way through all five of us, the disease left me scarred with pock marks. The largest of these scars is located about 2 inches below my collarbone. When I realized the scar was there, I became incredibly self-conscious. Even at the tender age of six I did not want people to see my scar or ask about it. I saw it as a flaw I did not want others to realize I had.
I was an athletic teen and enjoyed a variety of school and competition sports. However, the prospect of buying a swimsuit and joining my friends at the beach or pool left me in tears. It was a challenge to find a swimsuit that had a high neckline that would cover my scar. My mother finally found a swimsuit that fit my needs at an older women's clothing store. It was a hideous one-piece, blue geometric-patterned suit, but I wore that thing for two years because it covered my scar. There was nothing else suitable in the junior's departments of my local mall.
As time passed, I began to see things that I did not recognize in the days of my youth. The first and most important was that my scar did not define me. It did not make me ugly, as I had {wrongly} assumed. My family and many of my friends knew about my scar, and they still loved me and saw me as beautiful. The second thing I learned was that I did not need to dress immodestly to make friends, do well in school and sports, or to get asked out on dates. I had jokingly called my scar my "modesty modifier," since I may not have chosen to dress as modestly if I didn't have it. Dressing modestly gave me confidence and continues to do so today. I believe this is because I learned to respect my body by not showing it off as an object. By keeping myself covered, I respect my body for the incomparable gift that it is. At this point in my life, I am glad I had this experience so I can help other girls find confidence in themselves through modesty. 
Aimee & NicoleI wish that companies like Jen Clothing had been around when I was a teen! I so appreciate companies who make high quality, fashionable, MODEST clothing readily available. I know I do not have to purchase clothing items made for another generation anymore. I can dress well, feel confident, and be modest… all at the same time. This is especially important to me as I watch my youngest sister Nicole navigate her pathway through the teen years. The message I have for her, and for all girls is: "Be you; be confident; be beautiful; be modest!"
