Is it normal my girlfriend owns almost exclusively revealing clothes?

We live in Florida. I'm 20. She's 25. I wouldn't say her style is THAT revealing, but it's definitely not a "covered up" style at all. Short shorts, short skirts, short dresses. You don't see anything private, but a lot of thigh, that type of thing. Her most modest outfit is a winter outfit. A hoodie...but she wears a mini skirt with it, lol. She doesn't own one pair of long pants.

Is It Normal?

  • Oh god! a woman wearing shorts in a place that’s consistently 30+ degrees all year round, the horrors!

  • I guess it depends on why she is dressing as she is. As 1WG states if she's doing it to fish the market or if she's doing it for her self.

    I dress to please me however, I will say in my experience most people have parts of their body that they are proud of, or like the most, at the same time they have parts they aren't so happy with. Some like very low cut tops or tight tops to show their boobs, some it's the butt, others abdomen, or legs. Guys do the same with chest, arms, butt, and legs, maybe not as skin showing as a female but they do it. For some M & F it is as simple as hair or facial features.

    My whole wardrobe is made up of clothes I like because they make me happy. Cover stuff I want to cover and accent the parts I like.

    If I met someone who said I couldn't or shouldn't wear certain things or need to change how I dress, I most likely would tell them to take a walk out the door. The way I dress is part of me and most likely part of what attracted you to me to begin with.

    • If you're wearing clothes that barely cover you, then you are just fishing for attention.

      • 'Barely cover you' is a vague term, open to interpretation with no guidelines.

        In times past, and currently depending where you are, a female showing any thing above the ankles and especially the knee is considered barely covered.
        Think crew neck for neckline and sleeve length below elbow otherwise you're showing too much.

        I happen to like short shorts, mini skirts(mid thigh), crop tops, and almost backless tops, I'm not much for plunging neckline, mainly because I don't have a lot of cleavage to make the tops look or fit right. Yes I chose those words on purpose, because it's about how the clothes fit or look on me, not about showing my breast.

        There is also time and place consideration. Skimpier or more coverage may be appropriate. At a naturalist beach or location, a thong bikini may seem like a lot. In contrast going to the office or church with short shorts, super short mini, or even a deep plunging neckline may seem inappropriate.

        That being said there are (imo) somethings that may be too short or show too much. I knew a guy who used to wear his shorts short enough or loose enough for things to hang out.
        My rule of thumb is, if it's so short, plunging, or loose that you are constantly tugging, pulling, or adjusting it to prevent showing more than you want or should, then it's probably inappropriate.

        Nothing bothers me more than to see another female constantly fidgeting, or a guy constantly grabbing/fixing his package.

        Wear clothes that you're comfortable with. If you're constantly adjusting then you're wearing them to show off or at least for the wrong reason.

        • This was unnecessary.

          What does this have to do with anything?

          • You're right I should have just said the same thing about your comment.

            "Barely cover you"

            Undefined, unnecessary, and what does this have to do with anything.

            • No, not really.

              First of all, I think barely cover you is already self explanatory. Second of all, this has to do with the statement "or if she's doing it for herself". I'm saying that if she's dressing like a slut, then she is not doing it for herself. It's not as irrelevant as you make it out to be.

  • Thighs? In a public place? Good heavens!

    Sounds like she likes her body and just doesn’t feel the cold. Also you must have noticed her way of dressing before you got together, why is it just bothering you now?

  • In my opinion, she is free to dress as she feels fit.

    If you don't like it... then move on. Some other guy will be OK with it.

    • No, I like it. I will not move on from her. I was just wondering "why."

      • While there are individual differences from the general norms.... (i.e.; not everyone fits into generalizations)

        Here is an ancient generalization that only a few have been able to improve upon (usually they just use different descriptions):

        Men are from Mars
        Woman are from Venus

        They are different, and its a blessing when your partner appreciates the difference without being bothered by it.

  • Sounds normal. I'm 33 and the short skirts, short shorts, and short dresses is how my summer outfits are. I'll pair them with things like a tank top, crop top, knee high socks, a wallet chain, fishnets, and/or a choker depending on what I wear. XD

    • Are you blind? The OP just told you what his problem is.

      And that is very weird you automatically assume his girlfriend is "hot".

  • Could it be that she wears a bikini to the beach? Oh no, horrors.

  • Hey if she’s got great legs she should show them off now before she gets all fat and saggy.

    • I see what you mean, but I will say this, there are some hot older women out there, in their 30's, 40's, heck, even 60's, etc.

  • Florida is rather warm and I guess if she likes to dress like that, that's just how she dresses

  • She should be free to dress however she pleases and should dress to please herself not anyone else as should all women.

    • If they are dressing for themselves how come they dont get all dolled up and wear these clothes around the house? 😂

      I hear that alot but if you look at a girl at home shes got no makeup on and pajamas. Its not until she goes out and knows people will see her that she gets dolled up.

      • Not true for everyone, yes I enjoy my grungies around the house, however, I still look in the mirror before I really start my day. I still do my hair even if just in a pony tail. I still want to look presentable even to me.

        Along with my grungies, a lot of times, still fit my desires of what I'm happy with or not. For example; I wear shorts or a long shirt my legs are seldom covered. That is if I'm wearing anything, I'm happy enough with myself and my body that I would rather be nude. If I'm at home, it's my house, my rules. Others, may choose tight or low cut because what makes them happy are their boobs, butt, or even something that's cropped so they can see their abdomen.

        So even around the house with nobody else around, a lot of us do care but in a different way.

      • But that is her right. Anyway, since she's going out, she has to make an effort to look good so that people won't ridicule her. Also some places have strict dress codes.

      • That's a good thing

  • everyone has the right to wear what they want, and no one has the right to tell them otherwise, if you dont like or dont want her to wear it talk to her, but remember it is her decision and she has the right to wear what she wants even if it is completely sheer.

  • Some women dress like that. I always dress casually or even tomboyish. Watch how someone dresses and behaves single cause if you aren't ok with it don't date them cause that likley won't change. Like my ex wanted me to curl my hair like dude have you ever even seem my put makeup on let alone heat damage my hair??

  • First thing I always did when I got serious with a girl is get her to stop dressing like shes on the market if shes going out alone
