modesty in decline?

I read this article over at VosIzNeias.

The headline on the article is "Decline In Modstesy Prompts Lubavitcher Community To Call For More 'Tznius'".

I can't say I disagree.

But then, who am I to talk? (especially as I sit on the beach, showing more than knees and elbows)

A little modesty wouldn't be so bad...i just saw a picture of my 20 year old niece and her friends at a party in dresses much shorter than the thighs never mind knees!

shorty - i must agree.

the current trend among today's youth (wow, that makes me sound so old) is to wear those ultra-short 'dresses' (more like dress shirts) that barely cover any thigh!

And I thought showing my knees was risqué!
