I have just recently become friends with some LDS people, and they have been very kind in answering many of my questions. One has been plaguing my mind for quite a number of years:
Why the long underwear? I mean, it makes sense to dress modestly, but what is the reason behind the underwear that is an outfit in itself?

The "long underwear" are called garments. They are something that LDS members who have gone through the temple wear. One of our church leaders said they are: "a reminder of the sacred covenants made with the Lord in His holy house, a protective covering for the body, and a symbol of the modesty of dress and living that should characterize the lives of all the humble followers of Christ." Many different religious people where special clothing (priests, rabbis, etc.) we just wear ours under our clothing. There are references in various scriptures to this type of clothing. Exodus 28:1-4, Genesis 3:21(God made clothing for Adam and Eve), Isaiah 61:10, are just a few of the KJV Biblical references:)
