If you're looking for high-neck camisoles, we don't currently sell them at JenClothing.com 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."
I 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 ModMiss.com. -Jen

I just heard about Classy Sisters, a modest clothing store started by two sisters who wanted to create fashion for "Real" Ladies. They have lots of great modest skirts from knee-length to floor length, in many colors & styles. The skirt prices are really affordable, from $19.99 and up! Plus every order is only $2.99 for shipping which is so low.
Their top sellers are their denim skirts. They have 10 different styles. This one shown goes below the knee and has a straight pencil skirt fit. It comes in medium blue, dark blue and black. The denim has a small amount of Lycra for a little stretch. This skirt is a staple in any woman's closet, and the below-the-knee length is hard to find. These are only $19.99! They come in Misses sizes 4-18. Plus if you want the slit to be sewn up, either half way, or all the way, they will do that for free.
They also have a bunch of other stuff- tops, sweaters, jackets, accessories and more. I get a lot of requests for plus sized modest clothes and they have plus sizes and some products can be custom ordered in any size. I also get a lot of requests for clothes that look more sophisticated- basically stuff that won't make mature women feel like they're wearing teenager clothes. Classy Sisters fills that need for mature women, while still having something for everyone. Visit them at http://classy-sisters.com and use coupon code "jenten" for 10% off! -Jen
Here's one great modesty find: Camibands. They are multi-use and can be worn various ways to expand your wardrobe.
What exactly are these Camiband things? Slip a Camiband around your waist, hips, bust or swim bottom- wherever you need some extra coverage:
- Wear AROUND YOUR WAIST OR HIPS (as shown above) to extend a too-short shirt without the added bulk of an undershirt (great for those hot summers).
- Wear OVER YOUR BUST as a camisole to cover cleavage under low-cut tops or cover your sides under a shirt with large open sleeves.
- Wear OVER YOUR SWIMSUIT BOTTOM as a swim skirt in or out of the water!
Camibands come in Stretch Lace & Solid Spandex. There are many different colors and prints to choose from! Some even come in plus sizes. See them all at Camibands.com. Made in the USA!
Over the years many moms have asked if I knew of any place that sold modest clothing for little girls. Well I've found a new company called Modest Boutique that focuses on just that. They have super cute modest dresses and skirt & top sets for girls. Add one of their matching bows or crochet hats and your darling daughter is all set (sizes 5-10)!
The skirt and top set I got for my daughter looked beautiful on her. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. The fabric was really soft. The skirt was longer than most skirts to go below the knee, and it was lined to make sure it wasn't see though.
Modest Boutique is a Christian, family based business so you can feel good supporting them. They are currently running a grand opening sale of 10% Off All Orders (no coupon required). Plus get an ADDITIONAL 10% OFF using coupon code: JEN10 (expires July 31st 2013)!
