For members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, serving on a mission can be one of the most rewarding experiences of their lives. Young men and women are sent out to proselytize and engage in humanitarian aid or community service. During this period of their lives, which in the case of women is 18 months, the Church requires that missionaries dress at all times in a manner that is appropriate.
So where can a woman preparing for an LDS mission find sister missionary apparel? Today, clothes for any type of endeavor can be found at both brick-and-mortar stores and at online shops, and while this is just as true for missionary attire, the internet in particular has been a real boon for anyone looking for items with specialized requirements. An internet search using the keywords “LDS or Sister Missionary Apparel” will yield many good leads. Since time and money will be factors, it’s a good idea to further narrow down the results to those stores offering free shipping or that are within driving distance. For even more options, internet searches using keywords that are not specific to LDS missions, such as “modest clothing resources” or “eBay modest clothing,” will likely turn up stores that carry appropriate choices. Finally, if time is not of the essence, it’s possible to look up customizable clothing websites and find stores that make dresses, skirts and blouses and that leave the hemlines and the length of sleeves up to the customer.
