When you stop looking, well you are dead!! I like the female form anyway I see it, which tells me, at 71 , life IS not over yet, clothes on or off does not matter, it's how they present themselves. Cloths may make the man, but for Women cloths are for removing, one item at a time........it's the best way...to present themselves lol.

Would this be the norm in many places in the US? And do people think this is too little?


How many girls do you see actually walking around like this? Or do people only find it offending when the person is overweight? Personally, I agree with PearM that women are overdoing it.

I have only seen this look by the beach. I'm thinking of people who go to friendly gatherings in v-necks that show 5+ inches of cleavage in a push up bra, mini skirts in the winter, mini skirts that barely cover the behind, implants half exposed in tube tops, or any breasts squished into a top too small. Some will go out with the midriff, cleavage, and legs exposed for a night dancing.

The worst is when you see someone wearing something that shows skin in the winter. Not only do you lack self-respect but you are willing to bare skin when its snowing just to get attention. It's pretty sad. I sound like such a prude.

I've never been comfortable wearing shorts that are very short or tube tops/mini skirts in public. I don't have an issue with the young ones wearing less when its blazing hot out but make sure you can pull off what your body type is. I don't want to see rolls and muffin top issues going on lol.

I'm okay with sphagetti straps but from then on I perfer to be covered to the knee at least. Just my comfort level with not showing all my parts. I don't feel comfortable with the world seeing my body though and I don't have weight issues. If I'm round my house then I have no issues with wearing less clothing just not in public. The SO was attracted to my modesty since he severly dislikes what he calls "loose women." He knows they may not be loose but the perception is there for him and other men.

I am not modest for religious reasons and I'm not afraid of the attention because I get it just by virtue of being a red head. I just have that type of internal makeup. The SO was attracted to my confidence and looks and the modesty is a bonus~

If the woman is an adult, reasonable attractive with average figure ( able to pull off dressing real hot) then fine, show what you are proud of,

As a straight man, I couldn't disagree more with the OP. I don't mind seeing scantily clad women -- the more scanty the better as far as I'm concerned.

It's almost like looking straight up while squeezing lemon juice into your eyes. Thankfully winter is upon us and your eyes can recover till spring.

I've seen women dressed like that downtown. Imagine if a guy walked around with half his butt-cheeks showing?
