Candace Cameron-Bure Will Wear Modest Costumes On 'DWTS' To 'Be A Good Role Model'

Contestants on "Dancing With The Stars" are known for their sequined, sexy, skin-baring costumes, but Candace Cameron-Bure plans to be the exception for the show's 18th season.

Making her debut on March 17, the former "Full House" star and devout Christian mom revealed she'll be wearing more modest costumes for her appearances on the show, reports Us Weekly.

"The two most important things in my life are my faith and my family and I know that is what is going to get me through this competition," the 37-year-old told her partner Mark Ballas in a video clip from their rehearsals. "I'm not gonna be your sexy girl, I'm a mom of three kids so I want to look good and feel beautiful, but I will probably stay on the more modest end of costuming."

When asked about her decision to cover up, Cameron-Bure told Us Weekly that her costumes will be a "happy medium" between sexy and modest, explaining that she "won't be the sexiest one out there."

"I am a mom and I want to be a good role model for my children and my husband. But I think for each dance we'll wear what reflects the dance but in the most classy way possible," she said.

The former child actor also said she hopes her turn on "DWTS" will motivate other mothers and inspire them. "I'm just a woman; I'm not any different than all the moms out there -- my priority is my family, my husband, my kids and so this for me is truly just a joy," she said.

Of course, Cameron-Bure is known to have some very specific ideas about what it means to be a woman and a wife. Back in January, her Christian values made headlines after she told HuffPost Live host Nancy Redd that she takes a "submissive" role in her marriage to NHL player Val Bure. She clarified that she meant the Biblical definition of "submissive," which she claimed has more of a "meek" connotation as opposed to a "weak" one.
