Depends on how tight they are. I help as an usher and stand in the back, and . . . . oh, my!

More power to ya butt I hope they weren't jeans. I went to a NO Mass recently for the first time in months and was astounded by the amount of Jean Butts in front of me. Never noticed it before, butt yeah, Jeans r no gud 4 Mass.

Can't figure out how to post a pic, so I'm posting a link.

I don't get the whole pants issue. I know an uber-trad lady (she's in her late 70's) and she always wears pants. She also likes really fast cars :-D

Nothing wrong with pants as long as they're not tight. It's the low necklines that bug me. And tell the guys NO SHORTS. I don't want to see your hairy legs, thank you.

If you scroll down the page you will get a good look at our Mother in her dress.

Oh Lordy!

Did you wear eyeliner and lipstick too?

Pants Vs Dresses Vs Jumpers Vs makeup Vs freash-scrubbed Oh MY!


At this point in our culture, you'd have to wear a Hooters uniform to raise eyebrows in some congregations.

(We had a particularly 'pious' family in front of us one recent Sunday at the Abbey. Our Bishop wants all kneelers/kneeling ripped out of parishes, etc. The Mom brought a foam gardening kneeler to kneel during the consecration, she wore jeans and her teen dd wore yahoo high shorts. Really Yahoo high. I couldn't help but wonder where my soul sat amongst the irony.)

That's very smart Hon - you know - just in case your skirt blew up around your waist, you'd still be modest.

I do that too so, join the club.

I wear jeans all the time. I can't fit into anything else.

I often wear trousers, but usually loose and invariably with a long top/shortish dress over them. As far as I can see, the issue is modesty, not really trousers vs skirt, as illustrated in the link to Our Lady in Vietnamese style clothing. However, I don't think tight trousers with no covering of the butt area in terms of the top worn is appropriate for Mass (and perhaps not really in any context where there is mixed company).
