How you sit, bend, and carry yourself


I know women who've grown up in the church, even attended Bible college, and yet wear immodest clothes or else do inappropriate things, such as bend over at the hip with their butt sticking out for all to see.  Women shouldn't do this around men.


Here are a few simple things to keep in mind.  How you sit matters.  Close your legs when you're sitting even if you're wearing jeans.  Know that when you spread your legs while sitting, or straddling a bench, be assured that most guys nearby will be distracted.


I see women at church wearing halter tops that expose their cleavage, and they bend over without covering their chest.  Do they not know?  Or do they not care?  Women, please, you shouldn't expose your cleavage in public, anyway.  But when you bend over, by all means, place a hand over your top, and bend those knees.


When you yawn and stretch within the eyeshot of men, don't arch your back in such a way that causes your breasts to protrude.  I'm surprised at the number of Christian women who've done this when men are standing right in front of them.  You're inviting men to notice your breasts when you do this.
