Have you tried shopping for a cute, modest outfit recently? If you have, I offer my condolences--the last time I went out looking for something new to wear, I went home empty-handed and unhappy. Since when were crop tops (shirts that show the midriff) and sheer shirts a thing? Apparently not even shopping in winter will help you find something to cover up with.

To the left is the cover of the official an EFY souvenir book from 1991. It consists of the title, Feeling Great, Doing Right, Hanging Tough, in 80′s-tastic font design, and a photo of an exuberant young woman doing a sort of cheerleaderish jump for joy [1]. What I noticed immediately when I saw this image was the presence of leggings. It was remarkable to me because I have recently observed some controversy in the LDS community surrounding leggings and modesty.
