Fashion & Modesty: Two Contradictory Topics?

Fashion and modesty are traditionally always at odds with each other. The trends of the day since the invention of the bikini in 1946 reached its high point in the 1960s with the free love movement and finally plateaued in the late 1980s through the 1990s.
