This Veil of Tears

It is a rule of thumb with The Memsahib that laying down the law about women's attire is a thankless, not to say hopeless, task. You would have a pleasanter time poking bee hives with a stick. And whatever it is you're trying to achieve by doing so, you won't.

So I won't attempt it.

But I will cite you to this post on women wearing veils in church wherein Mrs Vidal points out that

"Christian practice and profane custom show women's dress to be not unimportant.... Customs are a way of thinking. External comportment is important because it reflects people's inner dispositions."
