There has been an ongoing discussion among viewers about whether Jill Duggar Dillard's (relatively) recent nose piercing makes her the family member who has rebelled the most against Jim Bob and Michelle's strict clothing rules. While Jill's cousin, Amy King, used to be called the "rebel Duggar" for wearing jeans on the show, sisters Jinger Vuolo and Jill Dillard have both been seen wearing pants in the last year. However, when Jill first flashed her nose piercing on Instagram, fans thought she might be the truest rebel. Is the piercing really about ditching her daddy's rules, though?
The Duggar women are brought up with rather strict modesty standards. In their book, Growing Up Duggar, the sisters say that they must wear skirts below the knee, because they believe the Bible says that showing the thigh is nakedness, that they don't wear low necklines or sleeveless tops, or tight clothing, and that there is a Duggar family code word ("Nike") used to warn the boys -- and even Jim Bob -- not to look if they encounter a woman in public who doesn't meet their modesty standards.
However, as married adults, some of the rules from the Duggar household have been left behind.
