ModesTee Test

Modest Clothes
With the modesTee you’ll never agonize over your wardrobe again!

Modest ClothingDo you have a hard time finding dressy tops that are modest? I’ve always had a hard time finding cute dressy tops. It seems all the dressy tops I find are sleeveless, sheer, or revealing in some other way. By wearing the modesTee underneath, I can pretty much wear any shirt I find and not have to worry about it being revealing. It makes shopping much more fun!
How does the modesTee work? Well it’s basically a stretchy shirt that snaps together between your legs so it can’t come untucked. Here’s a picture of me wearing a white modesTee under a sheer shirt. Normally this shirt would come with a small spaghetti-strap tank/camisole to go underneath it.
Do you have a hard time keeping your midriff covered? It’s so hard to find cute pants that come up high enough and shirts that aren’t too short. Even if they seem to cover enough in the dressing room, you often find it’s a different story when you take the clothes home. You realize you’re over-exposed when bending, stretching and sitting, and after you wash the clothes it’s even worse.
Modest Clothing
The great thing about the modesTee is that it always keeps your torso covered because it can’t come untucked! Plus you don’t have any bulky fabric like you do when you try to tuck a regular shirt in. That plus the fact that it also covers your sholders makes the modesTee much more useful than just wearing a tank top under your shirt.

I found the modesTee here: makeitmodest.com.

Here’s what one reader had to say about it:

“Thanks so much for putting the ModesTee on your website. I looked all over the internet for something similar (hoping I could find something a little less pricey) but in the end the ModesTee was the only option! I ordered two and I LOVE them. They work so much better than wearing men’s tank tops under your clothes…especially since there is NO risk of them coming untucked. If you hadn’t put them on your site I’d STILL be looking for something like that.”

We Put the ModesTee to the Test!

It might seem to cover well when you’re standing in front of the mirror, but the true test of any article of clothing is if you have to tug at it when you’re in action! So I wore a modesTee to play at the park and the arcade to really put it to the test.

Photo Details: Over the modesTee I’m wearing a white t-shirt I bought at K-Mart a while ago. It was K-Mart’s going out of business sale and the shirt was cheap. The shirt fit great the first time I wore it. I kept the shirt buttoned up instead of unbuttoning it like I did in these photos because I wasn’t wearing another shirt under it. Then I washed it. Wow, it really shrunk! So it just hung in my closet for a while – until I got my modesTee. The black pants with black and white striped waistband are from Wet Seal. As accessories I’m wearing a pink fishnet shirt under the modestee and a black flower pin.

There are also several others companies that specialize in long tank tops. I’ve purchased from conforteez and shade clothing and wear one everyday. I love feeling covered and fashionable. You can also check out these sites for more colors and styles.
impelclothing.com
layersclothing.com
modbeclothing.com
coverwear.com
just to name a few.

My favorite modest shirts are by Impel. You can find them at http://www.impelclothing.com. Not only do they offer extra long undershirts, but they offer a Long Sleeve style, Henley style and a modest V-Neck too! They are good quality and they come in a TON OF COLORS, so you don’t feel like you look like everybody else on your street! I wear at least one or two a day!

I’m a dancer, so it’s like impossible to dress modestly and still wear the required clothing for dance. It’s required that you wear short shorts and off the shoulder tops sometimes so you can see muscle placement and to move comfortably. With the modesTee, I can just wear that and shorts and I’m covered on the shoulder. The shorts are still a problem, but I wear tights anyway. Thanks for introducing the modesTee to your website. I can feel comfortable on group dates, too. (No single dates, I’m not 16 yet!)

im fifteen and i hate shopping. im really small and short and its really frustrating finding clothes that fit. (i still have to shop in the little girls department to buy my pants). the clothing on shade clothing and the other sites seem like they would be big on me since they seem to be modeled on older women. the other problem is that the prices seem high for just one thing and i…sadly…don’t have money. i don’t mean to whine and complain but: I NEED HELP! i can’t find clothes that fit and that i like and that i can afford. and im tired of wearing hand-me-down-jeans that i end up tripping over when i walk!

I have to agree with the reviewer before me. I’m fifteen too, and I’m short and skinny as well. (you’re not the only one!) I have a really hard time looking for clothes that fit me really well and at the same time are modest. I would really appreciate some help on finding some modest clothing that us short people can fit.

I cannot believe the simplicity of long undershirts! I have been struggling for years trying to find modest jeans when all they sell in the stores is low-rise. Now I can buy jeans based on the style, and not on how modest they are 🙂
