Because her calling and election has been made sure through the second anointing, so she doesn't have to anymore. The real question on my mind is: why were you looking up Ann Romney's skirt? :wink:

She is wearing garments. Garments do not come down to the floor.

Garmies or not, I think she's MILFie. I'd tap that.

Thank God for Ann. This is a cry to all the LDS Women in the world:

"It is okay to raise the hemline!"

Now, let us pray she begins to work on the sleeves next.

And how do you know that?

I do have to say that she very well could be wearing her garments....and either way, who cares? I think she looks great!
I'm not a fan of either her or her husband, but she at least dresses with class.

She could easily wear garments with that dress (although she would have to tuck them up a bit at the hemline....but again, so what?).

She's probably wearing garments. Garments tend to ride up a little bit. The skirt probably just barely covers her garments.

I have a couple of questions. First, are garments fairly standard in length? I know my mother's garments would definitely have shown when sitting down if she had worn Ann's skirt, but my mom is only about 5'5". Is it possible Ann is tall enough that they would not have shown when she sat down?

Second, does the Church approve of adjusting the garments in some way to prevent them from showing? If Ann's height did not ensure the garments would not show when she sat down, it's obvious to me she altered them somehow, such as taping the hems up. In fact, given she was on national television, I would be shocked to discover she didn't take precautions of some short to ensure they did not show. I have no personal objection to that, but it does seem to me something the Church would oppose. I admit, however, I really don't know.

She might have been wearing garments, hiked up so as not to show.

The real question is why she was not wearing a skirt long enough to cover her knees and the garments without being hiked up?

Is it to 'look of the world' rather than just being in the world?

I think this places Ann clearly in the NOM camp, no TBM would do that.

Oh, glad to see a standing pic. She could absolutely wear garmies with that awesome skirt.

Based on her physical characteristics, I concur.

However, I would find her personality to be a turn off.

She's 5 feet 8 inches. That puts her on the taller side and makes the standard issue more likely to fit shorter on her.

Translation: there's no way to tell if she is wearing them or not.

I don't think so. When I would go to a dance, I would have to roll them up when I wore shorts, and my shorts were longer than hers, plus I am 6'3"

No garments there, or, they are rolled up or altered.

If a woman turned up on Sunday to Sacrament Meeting wearing that outfit would it be considered acceptable?

Quote:
Immodest clothing is any clothing that is tight, sheer, or revealing in any other manner. Young women should avoid short shorts and short skirts, shirts that do not cover the stomach, and clothing that does not cover the shoulders or is low-cut in the front or the back. Young men should also maintain modesty in their appearance. Young men and young women should be neat and clean and avoid being extreme or inappropriately casual in clothing, hairstyle, and behavior. They should choose appropriately modest apparel when participating in sports. The fashions of the world will change, but the Lord’s standards will not change.


Quote:
Check your wardrobe to be sure all your clothes are modest. Place a chair in front of a mirror at home. Have each family member sit in the chair and decide how to be modest in dress or posture.

I'm really not sure what the hubbub is about Ann Romney's wardrobe choices. Women don't come in standard sizes or proportions (duh). Garments fit different body types differently. I don't see anything immodest here by LDS standards. Hell, her skirt is knee length. how risque is that? Should she wear a burka?

When I wore G's properly, I didn't have to tuck or roll to wear shorter skirts than that. They just didn't fit me that way. If i had gotten the 'long' sizes, they wouldn't have fit my torso because I'm just not tall-waisted. Plus I'm not tall at all, or particularly long in the femur. They just didn't end up being down to the knee. I could have worn fairly low-cut tops as well, just because I had big boobs and a smaller frame, and that's just how the necklines worked.

I just don't see anything to criticize here, and believe me, I wouldn't hold back if I could. That all being said, I'm glad no one thinks my underwear choices are their business these days. That's just bizarre.
