Breasts are not a fashion accessory
There are several aspects of my life that I am proud of. In college I won a hairy legs contest, I hitchhiked though Israel in the late 70’s, and I shot and skinned a black bear who was dangerous.
I wash my face and brush my teeth before I leave the house. And, of course I get dressed. Sometimes I will accessorize my outfit with a scarf, or perhaps I will wear a necklace. My breasts are covered in a bra, sometimes an undershirt if it is really cold outside, and a shirt that covers my chest. There is no cleavage showing.
Breasts are not a fashion accessory. I don’t think, “Hey, I am really proud of my chest.I will wear my breasts out today.” I don’t want to show my breast cleavage, and I don’t want to see yours.
If I am on the beach, I expect to see more of a person’s body. In a work setting, a school, a church or a doctor’s office, breasts should be covered. ( Unless you are getting a mammogram.)
In the late 1800’s it was immodest for a woman to show her ankles. In the year 2013, it is common to see almost the entire breast in an evening gown, with only the nipple covered.
We would all be walking around naked if Eve and Adam hadn’t eaten the fruit from The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. After they ate the forbidden fruit they realized they had no clothes on.
When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.
I don’t want to wear a dress made out of fig leaves, and I don’ t want to go back to the garden of Eden and walk around naked.
There are no specific rules about what to wear in the bible, beyond being modest.
I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearly or expensive clothes.
I Timothy 2:9
We have the ten commandments to live by, and after that we have common sense and pressure from society to conform. I don’t mind seeing a woman’s ankles, but I don’ t want to see her breasts unless she is nursing a baby.
Keep your breasts under your shirt. They are not a fashion accessory. Button up your shirt and go buy a necklace.
Do you like to see breast cleavage?
Please tell me in the comments. I would love to chat.
