What kind of clothes do Mormons wear?

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church) have always worn clothing similar to their culture and current fashion, but with the addition of modesty. In pioneer times, Mormon women generally wore long dresses with full skirts, and men wore pants with long-sleeved button down shirts.

What modern Mormons wear is also based on their culture, for example in Africa a Mormon women will probably wear a dress with a bright pattern, while in the U.S. one is more likely to wear jeans and a t-shirt. While Mormons wear clothing that is typical in their culture, they also strive to wear modest clothing. This means that they do not wear shirts, tops, or dresses without sleeves, they do not wear 'midriff' shirts that show the belly, there are no low-cut tops, and they do not wear shorts or skirts above the knee. When attending Church or participating in Church service (such as missionary work), Mormon women wear skirts, and men wear dress slacks and ties, or full suits.
