Because she likes feeling sexy? That's it. Why do girls need to do this to feel confident about themselves?
Okay, I found some images of what I would consider to be more on the provocative side. It is not necessarily about the clothes, because a woman with small breasts wearing a spaghetti strap is not really as revealing as a woman with very large breasts wearing it. Anyway, here are some examples.
These girl usually have low self esteem and feel the only way they can get attention by men is by showing skin .i feel that this is degrading to women .i was raised to dress modestly in my appearance why show your greatest assets to men who don't deserve it, only my husband gets to see me uncovered :)
Youre not talking to the right women then. There are many women who dress very classy and that's what makes them feel confident. As for why another large group think they need to do this, media, social pressures. Some feel like that's the only way to get attention. It's unfortunate, but that's how some think. Also some women just like knowing that they are desirable by men and that's the best way to test it.
This depends on what your definition of provocative is. I like to dress nicely, in ways that show off my figure, but I never show too much skin. But this is simply the type of fashion I enjoy. I don't care if men find it "sexy."
While you are saying that you want a confident woman who doesn't consider ogles from men to be validating, you are probably ogling those women that you assume aren't confident. lol irony. I say this because plenty of girls do not dress in the way that you define provocative. It seems like you just pay more attention to the provocatively dressed ones and overlook the more conservatively dressed ones. It's ignorant to assume that you know someone's confident level by the amount of skin they show. Get to know people and you'd be surprised.
First seeing all the links I found 2 maybe 3 pics provocatives. Then I wonder more about you feeling insecure about women wearing dresses or bare v neck.
Cause you said girlfriend, and if your girlfriend likes to dress "sexy" are you afraid she's gonna look attractive to other guys and leave you? Maybe you feel threaten by other guys.
I mean we like to look pretty there's nothing more we put in the dressing. If she has a flirty behavior, hitting on other guys well that's where you should be concerned, not because she wants to put a mini skirt.
Do you know kthe sentence "never judge a book by its cover" you could get pass the one because of that.
Dressing sexy is not the thing that makes us feel more confident. Sure we may get compliments but honestly we don't really care about guys whom notices us that way. We feel hundred times more confident when a guy will say we're sexy cause we're into the same thing than him, or that he loves our smile, or laugh thant the outfit.
Well, if by "provocatively" you mean showing ankles and shoulders, you should probably head down to the nunnery. If you mean dressing like she's in a hip hop video, then it sounds like you're picking the wrong type of girl or looking in the wrong places. You wouldn't look for gourmet food at a gas station. If you're at a sketchy club and looking for a girl dressed like she's going to church, it's not gonna happen. Trust me, not all girls dress provocatively, me included. Keep looking and maybe expand where you're looking.
Because it boosts her confidence and enjoys the attention. Men have made women the way they are, so don't even complain. Now, if you don't want your girlfriend dressing provocatively, tell her. she's your girlfriend and I'm pretty sure your opinion matters. I, for myself, don't dress like that. There's the right time and place to dress provocatively.
Yeah, because there is a very obvious connection between a girl's outfit and what men would find sexy or appropriate. Get over yourself. Who gives a sh*t if it's about provocation or attention, why shouldn't women be able to dress however the f*** they want without having to consider other people's reactions and opinions? What is this, the 50's? Women with large breasts shouldn't wear tight shirts and nobody should ever emphasize their curves, legs or butt? Like nobody knows they're there, so they should just stay hidden. Right. F***you.
There are plenty girls who don't dress provocatively it's just that they don't get noticed.
To answer your question male approval usually makes girls feel confident. Keep in mind that if you ask most of them about it, they will say it is not say it's to attract the attention of guys. This is a lie. I've said it before and I'll say it again, girls love attention, especially male attention. This is normal girl behavior.
I personally don't feel like I typically dress provocatively (meaning I might on a night I go out occasionally or something but not on a daily basis), but like beauty itself we all have various ideas of what we think fits the term you know. I think that many women find the feedback they get flattering and so that feeds their confidence.
But we all have our preferences and I don't think there's anything wrong with you having yours(:
i don't do this.
If men weren't always lusting over girls who are all exposed, the majority of the girls who do dress slutty on a normal basis wouldn't do it, for the most part... However, dressing provocatively once in a while is normal. As in, occasionally it's okay.
perhaps the reason you can't find them, is because you're too busy looking at the provocatively dressed one! You have to be blind not to see them.
i think you'd be surprised by how many girls there are out there who don't dress provocatively. I'm one of those girls...so is my twin sister, my college roommate, my two suitemates, my friend Sarah down the hall, my best friend Rachel, and I could go on and on with this list...
