I can believe they are dressing for themselves so they can get attention from other people. If your wearing anything to look hot or to make yourself look better. Not only are you doing it to make urself feel better and hotter but your wanting others to notice it. So they aren't just doing it for themselves.
Now if they go out in shorts, normal shirt, and no make up. Basically you can tell they aren't trying to impress. So like when I go to town I just wear a baggy shirt, shorts, and no make up. I don't care if I look like shit I don't want to get any attention at all.0

in most cases I don't believe it.
In might be directly for themselves, to feel good, but indirectly it's for other people.
Unless the girl consistently puts in as much effort to look sexy when home alone as she does when she goes out, I find it hard to believe it's just for themselves.
Normally people are lazy with their appearance when they stay in and put in a lot more effort when they go out. So they seem to care more about their appearance when they know they will be- seen by other people-.
A lot of girls say "oh I just want to feel sexy for myself".
ok... what does it mean to be "sexy"?
and why do they care if they are "sexy"?
From what I understand, sexy mean that you are sexually desirable, that your appearance elicits a sexual response.
So who do they want to feel sexually desirable to? who are they trying to elicit a sexual response from?
themselves? do they find themselves sexually desirable? do they want to elicit a sexual response from themselves?
I think it makes more sense that they want to feel validated by other people. Not nessesarily all men, just men that they want... and women too! I think it's a competition and that women often get off at knowing she's more desirable than the woman next to her. To know that other women envy her. I think a lot of them like that.1
