Would this offend you?

So last week I was staying with my mil hanging out with her before she goes on a trip. She was teaching me to sew and we made this beautiful quilt for some guy she goes to church with for a very sick little girl. So Wednesday this guy comes to pick it up my mil told me I needed to change my shirt to something more modest or stay in the room. (My mil is Mormon and I'm full atheist I'm proud of my body and feel I should show off as much as I want. But I was in pjs a tank top and long fuzzy pants very modest for me) I was very offended and I still don't get why I needed to hide or some random guy I don't even know. Out of respect for my mil I stayed in the bedroom but I felt like she wasn't respecting me and my feelings. If I didn't care about upsetting mil I would have changed into bra and panties and went out to introduce myself to the guy but sadly I care about her and didn't want to upset her. I'm still highly offended by this. Would that have upset you?

I think your MIL had every right to ask you to respect her Moral Standards when in her home. It's not like she told you  how to dress the whole visit.

I did respect them out of respect for her but I was highly offended that she would say something like that. It's not like I had my boobs or vagina hanging out I was just in a simple tank top and long pants. I show more when I leave the house
