There is legally something called an attractive nuisance and I wonder if revealing clothing fits that description. We can't help looking but we might wish we weren't being distracted.

I found that when I dressed in a very classy dress (it could be tight), nice mostly sandal heels and understated yet expensive jewelry I got a lot of attention from everyone. Worked out well for me! The tramps got a one night stand while I got the BMW.

I'd be extremely surprised if there is any scientific research on the topic. "Revealing clothes" is a very murky subject, and some people would be furious at the government for funding such research.

The actions vs. statements issue is a legitimate objection, but it might be very expensive to research actions - and, frankly, I think "worse than worthless" puts the reply in the same category as several others, women who just don't want to believe that they've been making a likely mistake for a long time.

What men say? Pfft!
Put a group of men in a high pedestrian area and randomly have women in various states and styles of dress walk by and see which get the most visual attention.

Lol. Women now want to be ogled at or more by men on the street? As far as I know, the survey never asked how much the men said they look at women.
