I’ve always been been a thicker girl, between sizes 14-18. My husband loves that about me and he definitely likes when I flaunt my curves a little more. It’s not that he wants me walking down the street in my underwear; but he’d prefer a bikini at the beach/pool, a form hugging dress for a night out, no maxi skirts, and clothes that show off my curves in general.
What wife doesn’t want their husband to find them desirable?
As I’ve grown in my faith I’ve become more conscious of dressing modestly. I veil in mass and I only wear knee length skirts and dresses to mass. My husband loves that I dress so reverently for mass, he dresses reverently as well.
However, outside of mass I always struggle with being modest and dressing In the way my husband finds attractive. What wife doesn’t want their husband to find them desirable? I like it when my husband loves the way I look, but I also want to honor God in the way I dress. What’s the appropriate balance?
