Wearing a skirt that is 1-2 inches (the average length of he skirts I wear) above the knee is also not

I also don't consider a vneck shirt that shows a little cleavage to be slutty. But everyone has a different idea of what dressing slutty actually means....clearly.

A lot of women dress like this that are 40ish. Lol. At least they do where I live. You wouldnt stand out. I think a lot of women you describe dressing covered up that are in your age range dress that way not because of their age but rather because of their bodies. They want to cover up the bumps and rolls.

Well, that's a matter of perception. I like looking rough 'n rugged outside the professional environment, and I don't care if others think its sexy or not.

Outside the workplace, be confident with who you are and don't worry about looks. That is what sensible people judge you on. Over time, they could care less about how you look.

I just saw your pics. The pink dress in your photo - is that something you have worn to pick up kids from school? If so, then I retract, you would stand out. But if its something you would wear for dinner, then you wouldn't.

That dress was one that I wore on a date night with hubby....definitely not something I'd wear to pick up the kids.

I am a sahm of three, 6, 4 and 1. I wear yoga type pants (the soft cotton kind and not the spandex or lycra kind) because they are so comfy. Most of the time, I am at home.

Give me another comfy option. And jeans dont work for me because I dont find them comfortable because my mothers apron spills out.

Well, I personally don't find it inappropriate for your age nor do I find it slutty.

I wish people would realize that everytime someone makes an arbitrary judgment of what is slutty is just backpeddling. Who cares? Human body is human body, deal with it. If people are deciding that someone's image or parenting skills is influenced by clothing, then that says more about them then it does the person in question.

What's that quote? Something about small minds discuss others versus great ones discuss ideas or whatever. Lol.

That being said, I'm a male and I try to wear modern, form-fitting clothes when I'm out. I want to be attractive like anybody else. I used to get called a f@ggot like no tomorrow in high school by other guys because of it. Whatever, I'm a straight male and I like to dress up. These name-callers are getting all hung-up over some slabs of cotton.

I have no problem with what anyone wears. I posted that early in this discussion.

However, I do think it's improper to wear "short shorts" and "revealing sweaters" when accompanying one's young children to school. And I really dont understand bragging that one doesnt care what one's kids think, that one "would not change how I dress even for my children".
