The act of lying about your feats and traits in an attempt to fool others into thinking you are capable of more.
I see through your modesty, you lousy piece of shit.

Modesty is the art of enhancing your charm by pretending not to be aware of it.
His modesty is always on show

1. (Females) The act of dressing in a non-slutty way. It ranges from not wearing tube tops and super-short shorts to wearing long skirts and sleeves below the elbows.

2. (Males) Not wearing saggy pants,

as far as I know.

3. Not making a big deal out of achievements/abilities, either in an attempt to gain more attention, or because you don't like to brag.
1. Protect your modesty! Don't dress for a beach party at school!

2. Did you guys with "swag" ever hear the word modesty?

3. Bob: Billy, you're always so full of modesty.

Billy: Aw, not really...

protecting others eyes from seeing the shape and contours of your nipples
In a bra catalog ad: "Sleek foam padding contours your curves...also protects your modesty."

A fine line between humility and low-self esteem which I chose not to walk.
For the sake of preserving my own modesty, I shall refrain from providing an example.
