“By ‘shrink-wrapped’ clothes, I’m not referring to items still in the store on the shelf and wrapped in plastic, but clothes that are worn by women, and worn so tightly you might think they have been ‘shrink-wrapped’ on them. WHY? Is it comfortable? Is it healthy? Is it necessary? Is it Scriptural? Clothes have been called ‘the second skin.’ Tight fitting clothes on females is to attract the attention of the guys--a sensual, immodest, defrauding kind of attraction. Christian men and women with morals, dislike, and are embarrassed by, this type of sexual exposure and temptation. Most of the time they are afraid to say something, because someone would say, ‘Well, why were you looking at them in the first place?’ insinuating their complicity and judging them for noticing. Christian ladies, please learn what the Bible teaches about clothing and apparel and dress yourself to honor the Lord! ‘… women adorn themselves in modest apparel’ (I Tim. 2:9). ‘Only use not your liberty for an occasion for the flesh’ (Gal. 5:13). ‘He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him’ (1 John 2:10). ‘...whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God … give none offence’ (1 Cor. 10:31-32). ‘The young women to be … chaste’ (Titus 2:4-5). Chaste is an absence of seductive influences.”
