The Ultimate Guide to Finding Modest Clothing via Downtown Demure

The Ultimate Guide to Finding Modest Clothing

The Ultimate Guide to Finding Modest Clothing via Downtown Demure

It warms my heart to see a growing number of articles in popular news outlets covering the rise in popularity of modest fashion. Unfortunately, a majority of those articles have featured the same handful of modest fashion brands, which is a shame because there are so many incredible brands out there. So I felt obligated to highlight all the brands that are dedicated to manufacturing and selling modest clothing. After conducting a great deal of research (read: LOTS of Google and Instagram), I’ve come up with the ultimate list of places to shop for modest clothing. I’m omitting the obvious retailers, like J.Crew and Anthropologie, because, well, that would be a total Geico moment (“Everybody knows that…”). If you’re a fellow modest fashionista who gets tired of shopping at the same five stores, be sure to bookmark this post. I even included a handy pricing guide:

Pricing Guide: $= less than $50 //  $$=$50-100 // $$$= greater than $100

    Oh my goodness, you’re like, my new best friend! You really did your research! I was surprised because there were ones on here that I had never heard of. There were a couple that had really good prices! Believe it or not, even though I look around on a lot of modest sites, I’ve never actually bought anything from any of them. I’m gonna have to start! I actually can’t think of any other websites. I think you covered them all 🙂

      Hooray! In one post I was able to 1) become your new bestie (!!!), and 2) introduce you to new modest fashion retailers. Mission accomplished! Haha. Seriously, thank you for the love, Elizabeth! There are so many good shops out there with prices on par with larger retailers. I definitely recommend giving one of them a try. I’m a huge fan of eShakti because of their customized fit services (and they are having a $40 off promo for new customers). 😉

    You are awesome! Thank you so much! I Love modcloth, and Target and J Crew have many modest options. So does SexyModest.com I think

      Oh, never had of that shop! Thank you for sharing, Samantha! And I agree with you — Target and J. Crew are two of my favorites. I left them out the list because they are such huge retailers (and I wanted to spread some love to the smaller guys). Thank you for reading and sharing!

    What a great list!! I’m so happy to have stumbled across your blog. It’s so hard to find modest outfits that are also cute and when I do find sites I hardly ever see African American modeling the merchandise and that discourages me. I am newly encouraged by your blog. Thank you.

    I noticed that someone mentioned SexyModest Boutique, and that was something I forgot to mention! Another one that I thought of is Main Street Exchange, even though they don’t have a ton of items. Also, Apostolic Clothing. Okay, just had to add that 🙂

    You have a way of “grabbing” my heart; and you never let go!

    I’ve been slowly doing some research on this, building a list of modest clothes websites. Thanks for the help! It’s great!

    Can’t think of any other right now. Hopefully, they would all be shipping internationally.

    Thanks again, Liz.

    God bless you.

    Thank you for making such a great list!! It’s a little sad how difficult it is to find modest clothing anymore. Especially down here in Oklahoma, I don’t know if everywhere else is like this, but it’s all about the short-shorts and plunging necklines. Modest and beautiful are not mutually exclusive!!

      Yes! I couldn’t agree more with your last statement. I live in LA, so crop tops and minis are all the rage. Thankfully several good modest online boutiques have opened recently. Thanks for stopping by, Veronika!

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Thanks a lot for sharing it with us.

    Yes nowadays most of the audience has fallen towards online shopping and in that the most number of customers for costumes go for modest clothing which is well enough and comes under your budget.

    Very big and complete description of modest clothing sites, pricing guide included to it makes it more perfect and ready to use. By this one can use the outlet more suitable to him/her. Many need this description as by the lack of knowledge they are still sticked to the few of outlets.

    Very nice of you for posting it, as I would definitely share it with my friends and followers. Have a good day and a nice week ahead.
