Hello all! Today I will be sharing my experience concerning modest dressing in college/nursing school.
Yes, everyone will stare, some will gawk and some will not bite their tongue for a few seconds and scream “OhmyGodshesinaskirt!” to their friends. To be honest, this is something I have dealt with my entire life, but I have gotten better at handling it since being in college. Being bullied in middle and high school helped me develop thick skin.
People judge you immediately.
This is not the best part, a lot of times people will simply look at my skirt instead of my face instead of speaking to my face. This is really annoying, but it is just the simple truth of life. My peers, professors, nurses during clinical and even patients during clinical notice the difference and sometimes forget there is no difference between the two of us. I can still save a life in a skirt.
You may not be taken seriously.
After making a hasty judgement about you, people will test you. I say, when they push, push back firmly and respectfully.
That is all I can think of! Are you a modest dresser? Share anything I forgot down below!
