    Chaliceman -
    I think you need not fear! I am TIRED of shopping for simple ordinary tee shirts at Target and finding that they are too low or the neckline too wide, meaning I have to shift my top to cover my bra straps throughout the day. I do not want a high tight neckline, but I *DO* very much want to wear clothes I can be free to move around in, bend, reach, lift, etc, without needing to adjust or expose my skin or bra straps!
    I stopped shopping at Old Navy completely 2-3 years ago because I simply cannot find anything in the ladies's department that is NOT see-through there anymore!
    My basic rule of thumb, if the fabric is thin enough for me to see my ring through, it's too thin to wear without being layered, and here in AZ, I strive not to layer any more than necessary! I want a single simple & flattering Tee. Is that asking too much?? Apparently it is for Old Navy and so many stores. I hope these stores will come to the US!

    this is the one of the most disheartening articles I have recently read. It is hard to believe that a 21st century culture is looking to fashion established 2000 years ago as a reasonable standard. Pretty soon they will all be wearing burkas as that was the "in" fashion of the time. I think men and women should be free to dress as they chose and not be under the scrutiny and judgement of other organizations, religions or institutions. Are we still that afraid of the female body? God created us in His image...is that image something we should be ashamed of and feel that we need to hide? The fundamentalist of any religious group are the problem whether it is Muslim, evangelicals, pentecostals, mormons, etc.

    If some Brazilians now dress more modestly; do they resemble the average person in the Northern Hemisphere??
