Bible Verses: How A Christian Woman Should Dress

Forgive me, lets do a quick check on this. This is in connection with a post below.

Through His Words -- the Holy Bible, God gives us a simple and clear yet general instruction on how a woman should dress. In I Timothy 2:9, the Bible says “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel…”

Also, God instructed the nation of ancient Israel in Deuteronomy 22:5 as follows: “The woman shall not wear that which pertains unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD your God.”

These are words of God, they might not go down well with us, but we can’t change it. We can’t even change who we are, because we don’t have the power to. Now before we were born, who knows where we were? NO ONE. Why? Because we are powerless to that. It’s only when we were created and grew up, that we started knowing ourselves, and again, one day, we will die, then comes judgement. How we lived our lives will be asked.

So you see, even if these words of God are hard to swallow, we have no choice than to do them, because they are tickets to peace, prosperity, better fulfilled life and ETERNITY – Heaven.

Also in 1 Pet.3-4, it explains that a true converted woman will covey a “meek and quiet spirit”, and this will be reflected in the type of clothing she wears.

Proverbs 31:25 says; "She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come."

The Bible spoke about a woman dressing based on her heart. So if a woman likes to dress sensually, then her heart is evil as well. This scripture from Proverbs proves that a woman need not dress a sexy way just for a man to like her.

1 Peter 3:2-5 reads;

When they see the purity and reverence of your lives. 3 Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. 4 Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. 5 For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves. They submitted themselves to their own husbands

May God help us all. May only spirit give us the power and strenght to be able to obey God’s commandments. Amen!


  1. What is termed mens clothing? If i like to wear jeans pants made for women, is that termed men's clothing? If we say this is a sin, what if i live in a region that is really cold and requires you wearing pants? The pattern of clothes in the old days are different from the trend now. If i wear a fitted dress because i like it and not because i want to be admired by a man, is that going against the bible. "Clothed with strength and dignity" can be interpreted in different ways.I just need clarification because i have thought about and discussed this topic several times with no proper conclusion.

  2. Back then in the olden day the dressing was different but change is constant. Also it's more of what's in the heart and not your look. Some people are "Christ like". But evil in the heart and behavior

  3. Well said Ladun

  4. From the pictures we are shown of men in the old days, they wore robes which can be termed as women clothing these days. What then is “men or women’s clothing”?

    Re-Deuteronomy 22:5. "this command was to the Israelites living under the Law of Moses and does not directly apply to Christians today."

    I am a Christian and I am living under the grace of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. The grace of Christ and not Abrahamic laws.

    How about Jesus Christ and other men in biblical times who wore robes which are like dresses? Conversely, does it not mean they should not wear women's clothes?

    Modesty is key. Dress modestly.

  6. It's not about dressing but your heart
