I’m proud of the LDS young women and parents who have advanced the cause of and market for modest attire for proms. Now I’m hoping some of you will turn your fashion skills to the next great challenge for decency: sumo wrestling.
While my boys were checking sports events yesterday, they ran into a televised sumo wrestling event. Yikes – way too much flesh. One American competitor had on some kind of elastic undergarment beneath the traditional sumo thong, but it really didn’t solve the problem. I dream of a day when sumo wrestlers can proudly wear attractive, modest attire so that all of us can watch sumo wrestling without suffering intense distress. And when that problem is solved, maybe we can do something to enhance modesty in body building competitions. Perhaps a full body burqua just thin enough to show rippling muscles?
