Modesty is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit. This refers to humility, the lack of pride and boastfulness. This word can also refer to dressing oneself appropriately to avoid attracting improper sexual attention, although this is not the intended meaning of this word when referred to as a fruit of the spirit.[1]

The Fruits of the Holy Spirit are perfections that the Holy Spirit forms in us as the first fruits of eternal glory. The tradition of the Church lists twelve of them.
