Not narcissistic or full of yourself. Humble.

Of clothing: not revealing. Covered up.
- "Me? A great artist? No, I can't accept that title."
- "But you are! You don't have to be so modest."

- "I'm looking for a more modest dress."
- "What's modest?"
- "You know- long skirt, high neckline, long sleeves. Nothing that shows off my breasts or my thighs."
- "I've never seen anything like that."
- "Forget it!"

To lie about being worse at something than you actually are.
John: Hey Phil, did you just do the 100 meter sprint in 10 seconds?
Bill: Yeah, but I'm not very good at sprinting.

The opposite of modest is arrogance. This is being truthful about how good you are.
