Christian-oriented fashion site promotes style and modesty.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Dress modestly and with style without breaking your bank account is the message here. Also, "If we want guys to respect us, then we need to respect ourselves."
Sex, Romance & Nudity
If you're looking for an entirely "modest" website in the strictest sense of the word, this site may not pass the test. Some of the teen models' strike-a-pose attitudes and some of the swimsuit photos may be considered by some to be too suggestive or at least not entirely modest. But generally speaking, nothing overtly sexual here by any means.

Products & Purchases
Lots of ads and product placements for fashion sites and stores, a contest sprinkled here and there. Still, there's lots to read, watch and do that doesn't require buying anything.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that SUDDENLY DARLING is a girls' fashion and beauty site that encourages modesty and creativity. Started by a Christian teen girl named Katelyn Rose, the site carries some big-name store advertisers and a rack full of teen or early-20s celebrities who promote modesty, too.

Is It Any Good?
SUDDENLY DARLING is a colorful, hip beauty and style site intended for girls who love fashion but want to learn how to look good while dressing on the tame side of the fashion equation. Through photos, articles, discussion boards, interviews with celebrities and product ads and descriptions, tween and teen girls can learn that fashion and modesty don't need to clash. There's a subtle Christian bent to the message, but overall any girl who is into fashion and is looking for support to dress her age could find a lot of helpful information and fun here.
Online interaction: Message boards appear to stay close to topic and tone of site. Girls can and do include photos of themselves next to their posts.

Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
