How much skin is too much skin to show in public?

Like I'm going to a friends party tonight and it's humid so I'm planning on wearing shorts and a sports bra (pic below). I'd like to get opinions on what's appropriate for the public and what isn't. Like I see celebrities wearing shit like this all the time and I don't know is that normal for people who ain't famous or no?

  • Where I live... the combination would be, shall we say, suggestive about the type of attention you were hoping to get.

    The top with yoga pants, OR the shorts with a normal tank top, would probably fall in the 'i look cute and sexy' range.

    Obviously, you go to the beach and everyone is showing MORE skin than this outfit shows.

    So it's really not about the outfit in isolation. The question is, are you showing more skin than everyone else? If you are, it seems like you are inviting sexual objectification. Which is fine and doesn't mean people have the right to treat you like shit. But people will react to it.

  • In my opinion way too much. Your not going out for a jog. Your going out with friends at a party. All guys are going to think is that your an easy lay, or other bad things about you. Don't listen to celebrities because they're life is not their own anymore. I don't follow them nor worship them. You dress how you want to be treated. But its entirely up to you. But the shorts are way too short: like 'I'm a hoe' short. You may as well go naked, thats how much skin your showing. A fashionable T-shirt would look better, and no tight shorts, but loose fitting and appropriate would do for a party. And besides some celebrities might put you in jail for even commenting on how they look. But this is my humble opinion. You will get plenty of dirty stares. And depending on who's party it is, some people will complain.

  • You might be able to get away with it if you wear some kind of workout/exercise shorts to pair with the sports bra lol, instead of those non-exercising shorts in the picture. It would then make you look like those jogger girls who run around in public with a sports bra. xD

    But even still, I don't think I'd recommend it for a party.

  • Not so much for a party unless you know the people there and others will be wearing like type clothes. A midriff top that is cut lower and nothing with the word bra in it. Shorts not cut nearly so short. Another 5"-6" longer. Again you don't want to be wearing an outfit the is much different than others at the party. You look good and that won't change just because you cover up some skin.

  • You should show as much or as little as you want. I'm one of the more conservative members on here and even I think that worrying about the way you dress is too much. There is nothing wrong with a little bit of sexy fun if you know your values and do not allow things to go too far. Just keep in mind that you WILL garner a lot of male attention and give the impression that you want them to approach you. As it is, if you weren't 17 and we met, I'd be hitting on you like crazy.

  • You look good but I would call that more beachwear than party wear.
    The shorts look good but it seems odd to just go out in a bra

  • Usually the average is 60 : 40 ratio. You can expose 60% of your body and protect 40% of the body by wearing appropriate clothes. So If you are a conservative type of a person you can protect even 80% of your body. So in this case you seem to be dressed appropriately. By the way your attire looks good on your beautiful body. But please try to match your sports bra with a matching shorts. That will be more pleasing to the eye.

  • From an actual adult point of view, that's too much skin. You're basically in as much as a bra and boy shorts would cover. If you want a lot of stares and inappropriate comments and assumptions... Then it's perfect.

  • probably don't wear a sports bra unless you're going to workout, I think maybe a crop top would work better but I"m not a fashion expert. I don't think anyone will really care what you wear, nice body by the way

  • Well personally I think if you wanted to pull off this look it'd be better to wear a flat colour, the pattern and the nike stripe says "I'm going to workout" and the bottoms say: "Haha not really", so it looks a little mismatched for my tastes. If it were a solid colour it'd look better.

    It's too much skin for me, but if you like it go for it.

  • Id wear a crop top instead of just a bra. Just a sports bra to work out in is fine but outside of that, I feel like it's better to have something more. My parents would've never let me leave home like that though so maybe I'm influenced on my opinion but yeah... the shorts look good though

  • 1. You have a great body!
    2. I wouldn't wear that tbh. I'd wear something other than a sports bra, like a crop top. Personally, I'm all for wearing whatever you want, but for a party, I wouldn't wear it unless it's a pool party.

      For any outfit, location is key. There are places where people practically roam naked and others where people are covered from head to toe. Just be conscious of your environment and wear what makes you comfortable and confident.

      Not at all, I love myself the way I am. I'm just being honest, there are girls who wear work out outfits out and about to just look "better" and "fitter" than everyone else.
