The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced adjustments to the official Sister Missionary Dress and Grooming Standards. Among the changes—halter tops and miniskirts are now approved.
“Requiring women to cover their bodies makes them feel invisible, unimportant, and unneeded,” said one MTC sister missionary. “Forcing me to cover my legs and shoulders is objectifying,” she continued, “I just like to dress sexy.”
The Church hopes the new move will help women in the Church feel less guilt for exposing their bodies.
“Women tend to feel the most awkward in locations where trampy clothing is generally accepted,” said a church spokesperson. “This is why the new uniforms are being approved on a regional basis.” Regions that have been approved so far include Las Vegas, Miami, and Sodom.
Since the change, convert baptisms have unexpectedly increased 900%.
