19 Kids and Counting star Jinger Duggar has broken her family’s modesty rules with her latest outfit.
The Counting On alum showed off her figure in a tight black sweater while promoting her tell-all memoir, Becoming Free Indeed.
Jinger wowed in the black top, which featured a square neckline and accentuated shoulders.
She went for minimal makeup and completed the look with a gold necklace and hoops.
The TLC alum shared a clip of herself with podcast host Allie Beth Stuckey after appearing on the podcast Relatable.
She captioned it “I was in-studio today with @alliebstuckey to talk about the last month since my book has released.”
Jinger’s outfit went directly against the strict dress code she was brought up with.
Her parents Jim Bob and Michelle urged their daughters not to wear pants or revealing clothes.
Their guidelines went so far as to ban front-facing hugs, social media accounts, unchaperoned dates, and public schooling.
Even trips to cities went against the parents’ conditions, making Jinger’s recent time in New York controversial in itself.

However, this isn’t the first time Jinger has flouted her upbringing’s strict rules.
At the beginning of this year, the mother-of-two posted a video of herself in tiny shorts, and has also been spotted in miniskirts and tight jeans.
Jinger’s book, Becoming Free Indeed – Disentangling Faith from Fear, has driven a wedge between herself and her family.
The memoir slams her upbringing and reveals all about life in the “cult-like” church.
Jinger revealed during a Fox News interview that the book has received an “interesting” reaction from her siblings and parents.
“We’ve had lots of conversations about our differences,” she said.
“Some received it better than others for sure, but at the end of the day, I know they just want what’s best for me.
“Even though my parents are still in IBLP.”
Jinger and her 18 siblings were all raised within the Institute in Basic Life Principles (IBLP), a nondenominational Christian organization that has been accused of being a cult.
Founded by disgraced minister Bill Gothard in 1961, the IBLP preaches strict modesty laws and ultra-conservative beliefs.
Jinger was an active member of the fundamentalist organization until finally leaving in 2017.
However, it has been noted that Jinger’s achievements haven’t been publicly celebrated by her parents.
Jinger’s cousin Amy has publicly celebrated her memoir, praising her for “using her voice” to speak out against her family’s “cult-like” beliefs.
“I knew she was writing a book and I’m proud of her,” Amy told The U.S. Sun.
“She’s speaking up, she’s using her voice, and she’s doing just fine [since leaving]. She’s got a huge following and that’s awesome.
“So I’m team Jinger!”
