Mayim Bialik is making a big bang with her latest project.

With The Big Bang Theory having aired its series finale in May, the actress is moving on to support businesses that align with her Jewish faith. The 43-year-old former child star was raised under Reform Judaism, but now identifies as Modern Orthodox Jewish.

As outlined in a 2017 op-ed for the New York Times — which generated backlash for casting judgment on how women dress and act in the #MeToo era — Bialik prefers more conservative attire.

“I have decided that my sexual self is best reserved for private situations with those I am most intimate with,” she wrote. “I dress modestly.”

The Kosher Casual clothing line, then, appears to be a natural fit. In a Thursday Instagram post, the former Blossom star and mom-of-two raves about “one of [her] favorite fashion brands.”

“Kosher Casual specializes in modest clothing,” she says, wearing a baseball-style T-shirt with three-quarter-length sleeves and a swishy skirt that falls just past her knees. “But, just because it’s modest doesn’t mean that it’s not hip and modern and good quality.”

Bialik goes on to show off the brand’s tunics, tops, and pencil skirts, offering fans a 15 percent discount code and thanking the fashion line for “being part of my closet and my life.”

While the wares may not be the Hollywood norm, Bialik’s Instagram fans are praising her for celebrating modest dress.

“I always loved your modesty,” read one comment.

“This is amazing! I'm not religious but I dress modestly and this website is amazing!” a fan added.

“There [are] so many companies that push sex in clothes, I’m glad to see modest clothes,” another follower wrote. “They’re hard to find.”

“i love you and everything you stand for,” another commenter posted. “Thanks for being an awesome human being and an example to the rest of us.”
