So, I was sitting in a corner of the library reading and this girl sits at the desk in front of me. Her back is facing me and the desk is like 4 rows of books in front of me. She was wearing this polka dot dress, that looked to be mid tight length. Anyway, when she got up to leave she bent over to pick up her stuff on the desk and you could see most of the grey shorts she had on underneath. I am not complaining about her wearing shorts under it, but my point is that I walk around campus and there are girls wearing the shortest of shorts (like almost butt cheek skimming) or there are girls who wear thongs with their shorts/jeans and all you see is whale tail. Or the tight as hell yoga pants and leggings. Or the tank tops and tight shirts that show off their cleavage and boobs. Or wearing a different color bra so it’s see though from your shirt. I can keep going but you get the point. How come girls are fine showing everything off but when it is time to wear a skirt/dress they wear shorts under it? What’s the point of even wearing it then, why not just wear pants? Or why not wear longer skirt/dresses?

It could be for a few reasons, really.
1.) Fashion. In many places, it's fashionable to wear shorts with a long shirt or a short dress because it looks cute in the right combination.
2.) Functionality. Dresses don't have pockets, so even if she did want to show off her legs, she may have still wanted pockets.
3.) Comfort. Whether this means comfortable with her body or comfortable clothes, it could mean either or both. She might not have enough self-confidence to show off or maybe she didn't want her legs to rub together. Sometimes I'll wear shorts under a skirt just because it's more comfortable that way.
4.) Respectable. She could just be a respectable person. I don't care much for women who let everything hang out, especially as half the time it tells something about the kind of person they are. It's still great to look nice in a cute dress, but wearing shorts underneath leaves no impression that you're trying to advertise anything underneath.1
