I have skin-tone camisoles that I wear under my sheer/thin tops because it looks better than wearing white or black, but other than that, I agree.

The flesh-toned stretch pants mentioned above makes me think of a time I was out running errands and saw a woman wearing a pair plus this top that I can only describe as "lime green and flesh toned swirls" and all of the flesh tone shades matched her skin, so it looked like all she was wearing was random lime green swirls. It was so weird...I'm generally a fan of people wearing what they want to wear, the rest of the world be darned, but that actually made me want to ask her if she'd looked in a mirror.

Ha ha, this thread is perfect. I've been looking for brown skinny pant cords and the lady at the store suggested beige, but I said that wouldn't work because they'd make me look naked.

I have quite a few sheer blouses and lace tunics and I like pairing them with nude camisoles - they keep me nice and covered, but maybe people think I don't have anything underneath? I also have some spring dresses and I've been on the fence as to whether or not I should wear contrasting slips or just a nude slip (which I prefer, but again, could lead people to think I have nothing under.... )

It is confusing sometimes when women do this though, especially in late fall when I start thinking which IDIOT would stand without a shirt on in 45 F weather, and then realize she has a warm sweater on as I get closer . Please back off from flesh colored clothes and don't foster a sense of resentment among those around you.
Uh, maybe the vast majority of Indian men are naturally hairy, but I don't know if that's true of any other ethnic group. I've been disturbed by men wearing flesh-colored clothing (and am not sure expected body hair would have made any difference).

Yes, outfits like that cause chain-reaction car accidents when they're out in public.

That also falls under the "leggings are not pants" rule. Cover your butt, woman!

Men's apparel usually is never sold in flesh colored clothes.

Really, men don't wear khaki pants? The wrong shade could easily make a pair of pants look flesh colored. And I've seen plenty of men wearing tan/beige/brown shirts that look as if they aren't wearing a shirt from far away.

Something like these could easily blend in on someone with the right skin tone

I'm not sure I've ever seen attire in my very pale skin tone.

Sunday, The important thing is not just the color, but the piece of clothing being skin tight AND flesh-toned. No, a man wearing normal fitting khakis would never look naked, even if they perfectly matched his khaki skin.

Similarly, I have a big cozy sweater that's similar to my (pasty) skin tone. But it's huge, and no one would ever think I was topless at a distance.
