We have never seen so much of Jinger before—literally! The former Duggar daughter turned Vuolo wife has shocked fans with her recent outfit choice.
Jinger Duggar became Jinger Vuolo in November of 2016. Since then, Jinger’s life has been turned upside down!
For one, she moved far, far away from her family in Arkansas to be with Jeremy Vuolo in Texas, where he works as a pastor.
Now Jinger is showing off another big change that she’s made. All of the Duggar woman are extremely modest. Their hair is long and unadorned, only a small amount of makeup is used, shoulders and knees are never shown in public, and they almost always wear skirts or dresses.
The skirts and dresses rule was explained to be inspired by passages in the Bible. Michelle Duggar wrote in a previous blog post, “Our interpretation was that from the neck down to the knee should be covered. By keeping those private areas covered, there’s not any ‘defrauding’ going on. My kids are taught the definition of defrauding as stirring up desires that cannot be righteously fulfilled. We don’t believe in defrauding others by the way we dress.”
She also wrote that she raised her daughters to do the same, “in clothes that are definitely more feminine apparel.”
However, recently a fan spotted Jinger and Jeremy at the Texas A&M International University campus in Laredo. She snapped a picture with the two, and the website Free Jinger picked it up.
Fans noted right away what Jinger was wearing: shorts!
They’re still rather modest shorts, but anyone has a very clear view of her knees. Jinger herself has never specified her attitude toward shorts, but her whole life she’s been following her mother’s footsteps, just like her other sisters.
But now that Jinger is married, fans are wondering if her husband has expressed that he would like to see her in shorts, or if he somehow let her know that shorts are okay to wear.
In one episode of 19 Kids and Counting, older sister Jill even refused to wear the standard uniform when working as a volunteer firefighter EMT. She instead modified the standard pants into a skirt, though she did wear pants when working around actual flames.
Both Jessa and Joy-Anna have been seen working out with skirts over loose-fitting exercise pants while working out.
One fan on Facebook reminded others that in one episode, the family went water skiing, and the wind blew up Michelle Duggar’s denim skirt to show her knees. So she made the TLC producers blur them out!
So fans are excited that Jinger stepped out in shorts, albeit quite modest ones. That Texas heat is certainly no joke!
