Great thinkers have always been focused on the virtues of modesty. Back in ancient Greece, philosopher Diogenes said, “Modesty is the color of virtue,” while Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten observed, “When virtue and modesty enlighten her charms, the luster of a beautiful woman is brighter than the stars.”
The Western world also noted the merits of modesty, as British writer Arthur Helps wrote, “There are no better cosmetics than a severe temperance and purity, modesty and humility, a gracious temper and calmness of spirit.”American author Louisa May Alcott added, “The great charm of all power is modesty.”
Centuries later, it’s no wonder modesty dresses have remained a fashion staple for women around the world—and women online. Today, Artizara offers easy-to-order modest maxi dresses, kaftans and long sleeve gowns suitable for formal occasions and everyday wear.
