But what I dont get is women who want to show that much skin or criticize others who do? One time, a coworker of mine was sent home because of a short skirt. It came mid thigh sitting down? Her butt was completely covered. ? I don't get it.
I'm sorry. I don't quite understand this sentence in the whole context of your post.

...But anyway, I really don't care what a woman wears, when she wears it either. If she violates some kind of dress code, that is between her and that establishment. If I don't like what I see, then I will look somewhere else. She ain't dressing for me (who is). If she feels good in what she wears, then that's great. I want people to feel good about themselves.

Yeah, if you've ever been inside a GM plant, it's pretty much a free-for-all on the line, and they would probably break a world's record for number of pairs of jorts.

And some of us show cleavage merely by crossing our arms in front of ourselves.

A week later, my daughter got dress-coded for having shorts that were too short. She showed the principal that they actually did reach the ends of her fingers.

The principal went, hmmm. It turned out that the principal has a very short torso and long arms, and her fingertips almost reach her knees.

My daughter has a longer torso and shorter arms. Her fingertips clear her rear end by a couple of inches and stop 7" above her knees.

Shorts and skirts that look very modest on the principal look very short on my daughter.

It's not always as easy as it seems.

If she was sitting at a desk or table across from people who could see her knees, or getting out of a car, she could accidentally end up showing a lot more than she intended.

How much skin is too much? If you're attracting a lot of attention, if you're the object of snickers, if your clothes reveal more than everyone else around you, you may need to dress more modestly.

Yep. Iím ok with bikini top and thong as a minimum. Iím fine with breast feeding in public. I find the whole Puritanical dress code thing to be pretty bizarre. If itís 90f, wear as little as you want.

I'll bet lots of men would be just fine with women wearing bikini tops and thongs everywhere.

Thatís the problem - there is no such dress code, puritanical or otherwise, when it comes to how a woman decides to dress for herself. Itís simply puritanical thinking (as I previously mentioned) for men or women to think they can judge or control what anybody else does or doesnít wear - even if their choice is not necessarily Ďappropriateí. No one must conform to our expectations. The workplace, of course, is a different story - but even then, people can get fairly extreme about their complaints. Most in professional environments know whatís inappropriate for the job - or they probably wouldnít have the job in the first place.

Story of my life. No styles seem to look good on us. Probably getting judged left and right all day long, LOL. Then again, nobody really cares, do they? Not in the workplace anymore, so....
