"Modesty in a woman is the sign
that Jesus Christ dwells in her heart.
It is a sweet perfume of edification
which she is called upon to diffuse."
from the Fatima Crusader
"The secret is
to regard our bodies
as beautiful gifts from God, miracles of His handiwork,
chosen by Him to be
His living temples on earth
and to be glorified forever
in heaven." *
"Modesty is important because
it is the fort that protects the castle, but it is also the frame that
enhances the picture." *
"A true love of God is necessary
to grow in modesty" *

"What a joy it is to meet a person
with a happy smile and pure intention,
whose modesty shines forth
and acts like a window
to reveal their personality
and particular beauty." *
Pray the Rosary for world peace.
"How beautiful then is modesty
and what a gem among virtues it is."
(St. Bernard, Confessor and Doctor of the Church)

To say that "...modesty is a matter of custom" is just as wrong as to say that, "...honesty is a matter of custom."
The Church asks no more of women with their modesty of dress/conduct as She exhorts men to be with their eyes.
