St. Louis Mormon TempleThis article is one in a series of articles about explaining our Mormon beliefs to our friends. See other articles in this series.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released an official video and explanation about the sacred clothing members wear in the temple and the sacred underwear worn by members under their everyday clothing.

Some members of the Church are caught off-guard when they are asked questions about why we wear garments, often referred to as “Mormon underwear.” Because the garment is sacred and important to us, we often don’t talk about it much in public. However, there are ways to respectfully explain why we wear the garment and why it is  important to us.

I encourage you to read the article about temple garments and watch the video below:

Watch video in Spanish.

Here are some additional resources with information to help you explain the wearing of garments to your friends–or even to your children:
