- Shorts, tank tops, plunging necklines, spaghetti straps, cutouts, backless, bandeau, strapless and halter tops and dresses, bare midriffs and tight clothing are not acceptable for mass – These can be covered up with a lightweight jacket or large scarf. Cleavage is NOT acceptable at mass. Wearing long tops or jackets over pants reduces the risk of underwear lines from tight clothing.
- If skirts are above the knee consider stockings, tights or leggings (yes – for an hour, it won’t kill you. Besides, they are definitely in fashion!). Skirts that are 4”- 5” from the behind are TOPS not DRESSES. Wear pants or leggings (not tights) with them.
- Most knit fabrics cling. If a garment is lined there is less chance of “clinging” OR, wear a slip.
- The above are just guidelines – use common sense; some people may be more endowed in certain areas necessitating greater coverage. For example someone with thicker thighs might look inappropriate with a skirt 2” above the knee.
We recognize the importance of our Sunday worship not by placing undue importance on our outward appearance; but rather drawing closer to God in all areas of our lives. As Britain celebrates the diamond jubilee of their queen, we too rejoice as true princes and princesses, CHOSEN to share in the inheritance of the King of Kings!
