Yes, that's true. I do that on the rare occasion I wear a narrow skirt, or even for jeans, to hide a big rear but show an hourglass form in the front.

Getting Attention or a "look" is great. Having someone verbally abuse you...ah no. That's the worst. Looking someone up and down while you are licking your lips and pumping your hips...gross.

Most men are fine and know how to admire a woman. Some men just want to impose their will or feel dominate over them.

That is too "mommy like".

I love the Bodycon dresses.
My fav store is Gitionline.

When they recommend clothing for certain shapes,i usually dress for the opposite.
I wear what the clothing experts recommend for apple shapes,even though i am pear shaped.
Showing small waists and large hips are in,thanks to Nikki Minaj,Beyonce,J Lo.

I get the impression anything that doesn't show a lot of skin is mommy-like/matronly/hideous to you.

I agree - I did not see anything "mommy like" about the dress jade posted.

i find that dress a little too low cut and a tad on the too short side.

I dress very conservatively and still get attention. I'd actually prefer not to get any attention while heading to work, etc.

But if I'm at a social event dressed up..then that's the right time and the right type of attention I'd prefer.

Not a club or bar though!

The black dress posted above isn't matronly to me. It's longer than I prefer, though. For someone of average height like me, that length of dress makes me look short.

Everyone's tastes are different, including their bodies so it's a matter of preference. I'd wear that dress if it were in a different color.
