|I'm camera shy so I don't have any pics to share.|
When I first started the challenge I felt frumpy and shapeless but now I'm used to not seeing all of my legs when I look in the mirror and would probably feel strange in pants. I wear skirts that are right above the knee or longer. I like longer skirts when I am working in the garden because I don't have to be as careful of how I move as with a shorter skirt.

I feel a little strange in public because not many other women are wearing skirts or dresses. It bothered me a lot at first but now I'm used to it and feel comfortable, if a little over dressed, when I go somewhere. It makes you realize how little people seem to care about their appearance and what they wear!
|And I don't like shooting self-portraits.|
As to modesty, I think a longer, flowing skirt is more modest than jeans or shorts. A skirt just above the knee is probably more modest than jeans but then you may be the only one in a skirt which would be more noticeable. My husband wasn't very helpful when I asked him about the issue. He said he could still see my behind and legs so that makes him happy. He did say a skirt would be more modest than tight or fitted jeans though.
|And I can't think of any other excuses.|
I do enjoy feeling more feminine when I'm wearing a skirt or dress. My only problem is what shoes to wear. I broke one of my toes almost two years ago and it hurts when I wear dressier shoes. For now I'm sticking with flip flops but will look for sandals or something else this summer. I don't know what I'll do in the winter.
|Oh, I know, my husband leaves too early in the morning to take a pic for me.|
I know, I didn't really answer the question which is in the title of this post. I don't know the answer. I guess it depends on the situation. I personally think that no matter what you wear someone would find it to be immodest and you have to follow the conviction you have in your heart along with your common sense. I also think standards of modesty are different for each culture and country and depend on how hot and sticky the climate is. So there's my non answer.
