Culture, Culture, Culture
Everyone always screams culture culture culture when this subject comes up so i will tell you why i am mainly dresses in today's culture. ~smile~
I don't believe the Bible says "don't wear pants if you're female" However , in today's culture, where pants are so accepted and so visible it is the woman who wears a dress or skirt who "sticks out". Wow! What a platform for Christ!
Every man I know says he thinks a woman is more feminine in a dress and women are always saying to me- "You look so dressed up and pretty while I look frumpy." So yes dresses in today's culture do make a statement. ( it has to be the right dress of course- you can't wear a low-cut minidress and call it feminine.!)
I am treated differently by both sexes when I wear a dress. Men are more likely to help me in whatever I am doing, more likely to open the door for me, and speak with a "cleaner" mouth than when I wear pants. I get nods and soft hellos - in a polite way- when I wear a dress but NOT when I wear pants. it speaks respect I believe. it's like iIm not one of the gang but I stand out.
I do believe there are times when pants are appropriate but not for the most part. That's my opinion of course but it came after a lot of study. Why not let culture be our guide since that is what is always brought up?
Think how you act when you wear a dress instead of pants. Is it different? Do you feel differently? More feminine? I believe what God is calling us women to do is to celebrate our femininity.
