Hmmm, that is an interesting question. On the one hand, Noahides are obligated to practice a certain level of morality when it comes to sexual relations... on the other hand dressing modestly is a bit of a different thing.

Many of the reasons that a Jew must dress modestly go along the lines of dress like a prince/princess, so those would not apply. On the flip side, Jews are required to not look at immodestly dressed people if they can avoid it, and I would like that a Noahide, out of respect for the Jews around him or her, would dress modestly to avoid creating any temptation. The second reason applies to both genders, but is more applicable to girls.

I am curious to hear what others have to say.
