Short answer, yes. Long answer, it depends on who you ask and your definition of sexy.
Honestly, it depends on you.
The definition of sexy is "sexually appealing, attractive, or exciting or having interesting or appealing qualities."
Women are naturally attractive because God made us that way. He made us appealing to the eyes of man so that we can come together (with our husbands) and multiply!
I believe every woman has the right to feel sexy, to feel confident in her own skin, and to be proud of her body! But I do also think, some people, cross the line between being tasteful and being explicit.
When you're tasteful you look elegant, graceful, and honestly, you get more stares. It's almost as if you know you look good but you don't have to "do too much." Let's call it the "Wow Factor." The Wow Factor is when you leave people shocked and speechless because you look absolutely stunning.
Now, let's talk about dressing explicitly. When your attire is explicit you are showing a lot of skin and openly, and unnecessarily, exposing body parts. We'll call this the "Oh Wow Factor." The Oh Wow Factor is when you may leave people uncomfortable by your attire or they are shocked at what you are wearing.
My philosophy is, "If you wouldn't wear it in front of your mom then reconsider."
Granted, there is a time and place for either, but I do believe Christian women should represent themselves differently. We should be set apart from the world instead of trying to fit the mold of how "culture" thinks women should dress.
In college, I would definitely say I showed more than I should have. But as I grew closer to God I started to dress more modestly. Dressing modestly doesn't mean you have to dress like a nun. It means you love your body and you respect your body's privacy.
I still wear outfits that are fashionable and accentuate my figure, but I make sure that I am covered, respectful, and tasteful. At the end of the day, I am a woman in ministry and I'm living my life as an example for other women, so I should represent myself, and my brand, accordingly.
Remember: it's all about how you carry yourself.
We could honestly debate this topic forever! But at the end of the day, you're going to dress the way you want depending on what you're comfortable with.
