How do you like to dress for church?

Discussion in 'Conservative Christianity' started by LovebirdsFlying, Nov 20, 2011.

How do you like to dress for church?

  1. I dress formally or "business casual." I believe we should look our best for the Lord.

  2. I wear very casual clothes, but I make sure they are clean and in good repair.

  3. I don't care what I wear to church, even if it has stains or rips.

  4. Other. I'll explain in the thread.

    Maybe you can have it refitted? :)

    I would LOVE to take anniversary pictures with our wedding clothes (my husband owns his tux as well). But I'm afraid I can't fit in my wedding dress right now. Ironic, since I paid a tailor quite a sum to alter it down to fit me, and perhaps the original dress would fit now. ;)

    (It was funny too, because of the design of the dress, he couldn't alter it to fit me perfectly, so he told me he would alter it and I had to lose 5 pounds, which I did!)

    I suppose I could have it altered, but I am having trouble finding a tailor. I have 6 pairs of pants that have been waiting.....

    We've been married six years. There's a moderate difference in size since then. Both of us have lost weight. I don't know how it would fit me now. It's more of a special occasion dress, like Easter or Christmas, than a wedding gown. I can't find it now at the site where I bought it.

    At the church I go to, attire is actually presented to us as "come as you are." My pastor founded it on his vision from God of a "new kind of Christian fellowship." Smack on the front of their website is something on the order of "We preach in jeans -- dress how you like."

    I generally wear Blue Jeans and a T-shirt, I have on occasion worn a sport coat or a polo. Never had anyone mention anything to me about it.

    However, growing up I was born into a nominally Mormon Family. I really enjoyed going to church, however their were times that I was physically refused entry into the sanctuary for not having a shirt with an collar and tie. And if I remember it was with an hand on the chest.

    At my church it runs the gamut...shorts and t-shirts to dress slacks and sportscoats. Our "dress code" is please wear clothes. I don't wear shorts...too chubby. Jeans, a skirt, nice top, shoes or sandals/flip flops...

    I dress modestly and wear long (knee to floor length) dresses or skirts to Sunday liturgy. I usually cover my arms (I have ugly tattoos on right arm) but rarely will wear 3/4 sleeves. I'm not always very formally dressed though. Last Sunday I wore my teva sandals with a long skirt. I sometimes walk the three miles home since I don't have a car. I don't think God minds. Modesty and humility seem more important to me than being dolled up but sometimes I do that too.

    At weekday services I wear jeans sometimes, especially if I'm rushing in from housework or regular work. I'd prefer not to but in a pinch I'd rather just get to church. My non church attire is generally pretty modest anyway.

    I don't go to church currently, though I'm going to.
    I don't really have 'dress' shirts, and the only thing I ever wear out in public, is a red flannel button up shirt, blue jeans, and a brown hat.

    I kind of dress conservatively. The key is probably not to draw attention to oneself.

    Some churches might prefer long sleeves, but I guess you prefer long sleeves because you now don't like your tattoos; maybe a bit of ink touch up and/or redesign might help you be less self conscious? (Just my 2c...)

    I personally will only wear dresses or skirts. I do not think it is proper and now this is my opinion I do not think it is proper for a woman to wear blue jeans or slacks in church.
