I read this book a couple of months ago and took on some of the advice of the author. I started wearing dress/skirts more often. Especially to work and when out in public. I took on a new identity so to speak. I felt comfortable that I was getting attention because I looked soft and feminine. People I would see all the time, like at the gas station, grocery store and even friends took notice. Although the employees at the gas station, attendrd on a regular basis, though I was going to alot of funerals until they asked me one day if I got a job or what? I have worked for 20 years in an office setting and they had never noticed me before by the way I was dressed.

This book does offer alot of guide lines to proper attire. I didn't feel the desire to never wear pants again but personally, I think we all need to take it to our own personal level, I feel that these changes have made me feel like the woman God intended me to be. The wife and mother that is an inspiration of why women are so precious.

Last but not least if we just take notice of what is proper attire in the house of our Lord that would be a start. I have given this book to a few young girls that don't think about what they wear to church and I have seen a change and have even been thanked.

Read this book and take from it what you feel you need to make even a small change. See what it does for you. See what it can do for society.

If you were raised as a so-called Baby Boomer in the 1950's and 1960's as I was, you will remember rules and regulations in public and private schools about appropriate dressing attire. This was also the case at a job. My point is simply this: from my recollection, people behaved better and I, for one, think it had a great deal to do with taking the time to care about the language communicated to oneself and others by what we choose to wrap our bodies in. Wealthy or poor it doesn't matter. Unlike books that you cannot judge by their cover, most people judge others by theirs. This book, from a Catholic point of view, and is most sympathetic to mothers and fathers who are at wits' end with their youngsters virtual invitation for "trouble." And this author brilliantly provides do-able ways you can assist yourself, and others, to basically hold back the night - that comes with the never-ending attempts to corrupt our youth through incomprehensible surrender to forces that lead them ultimately down the wrong road. Of course, the clothes alone are not the core issue. And there are always exceptions. But it is what the clothes represent for the one wearing them, and others seeing them. Please buy this book, especially if you are a Mom or Dad. You will never regret it.

I am only in three chapters and already know I love this book. Ms Hammond writes with compelling humility, many interesting quotations, and clarity. As a former model herself, her message is formidable.

This book changed my life, and so much more for the better. I now understand the beauty of embracing my femininity (in a real sense, not the modern "feminist" sense). I love the focus on self-respect through out the book, and recommend this to every woman who wants to take back her dignity as a woman. Fantastic.

This book answered many questions I had about wearing dresses, like, "WHY?!" and "how", not to mention, "What type?", etc., etc... I have always felt like a true female in a dress. I highly admired those mothers whom I saw wearing dresses at parks, the zoo, the grocery stores, and every day casual events. I could feel their femininity and rarely had any doubt that they were Christian. I often wondered how they could "pull it off". I've often wondered, "Why pull it off?", as well. Dressing with Dignity has the answers I've searched for, and those I never thought to ask.

The book was a very quick read, and I'm a slow reader! I had a hard time putting it down, as it quenched such a thirst for knowledge! I, now, feel prepared to dress my daughters properly and appropriately, and to dress as an example for them. I have also found a wonderful source to back up my resistance to allowing others to buy inappropriate clothing for them, as gifts. I can now counter statements such as, "It's what all the kids are wearing these days."

Amazingly, it even simply answered my questions about wearing makeup. I've often felt torn about this, wanting to wear it to look nice, and because my husband likes a little on me, and wanting to be as God made me. Now, I know it is fine to accentuate the natural beauty God has given me, while not drawing undo attention to myself.

I can, now, gladly dress in a very feminine way, feeling good about myself, bringing out the best in others around me, and feeling stylish, as well. I can set a great example for my daughters, guide them in their attire, and, perhaps, set an example for others around me.

I highly recommend this book!
