How conscious are girls of showing their cleavage?

I'm in college, and basically, I'm wondering: do girls purposely 'put out' or show their cleavage to guys? ie bending/leaning over so that a guy can see, as some kind of means of flirting? or does it mean nothing, and do a lot of girls just not care?

I met this girl last night at a friends house, it was just the three of us and we were having a very laid back evening watching a baseball game on TV and just chatting. I couldn't help but notice throughout the evening that while she was sitting back in her chair, she would pull the collar of her shirt up. she was wearing a very loose tank top kind of shirt, so I thought that was only natural, since I was over and it wasn't just her and her friend. but later on in the evening, when I had moved to a couch that was more across from her, she leaned forward in her chair while texting, and she may as well have just been sitting there in her bra because I could just see everything, and she didn't look up or adjust her shirt or anything.

we got along really well throughout the evening. she was very engaged in conversations we had with each other, and she made frequent eye contact with me. I've been told I'm an attractive guy, so I feel like there's a chance she may have been attracted to me at least a little bit.

but all that aside, I'm mainly just curious as to whether she was conscious about exposing herself like that to me. and if she was conscious of it, what does that really mean? is it just an indication of comfort, or what? I'm a bit of an analytical person, and if you feel like interpreting my situation you can, but I mostly just want to know how girls generally feel about showing cleavage, and how conscious they are about it.

thanks for any responses.

  • it's sort of funny with me. I always wear cleavage as much as possible since it makes me look attractive and I like the power it gives me over guys and I see it makes guys feel alive (as if

    fresh blood pulses through their veins) when they see me in cleavage.

    But even though I'm opinionated and loud and competitive with guys, I'm a bit shy so if I've just

    met the guy and my cleavage is exposed, I'll hold a jacket or sweater over it while we're

    talking. If I like the guy and he's polite to me and doesn't stare or leer at my cleavage and I know

    he's sort of attracted to me, I'll keep my cleavage exposed for him to look at while I'm smiling at him

    and we're talking and we're both pretending my cleavage is no big thing.

    But for sure if I don't like the guy, then I cover up since I don't want him to think I have any type

    of romantic or sexual feeling for him even if he wants me.

    Sounds to me she may like you especially if she smiles at you a lot and keeps eye contact with you and keeps her cleavage exposed. If she accidentally showed her cleavage and kept her cleavage hidden the rest of the time, then it may just be accident. She had to have showed you her cleavage the ENTIRE time she was with you if she's interested in you.

  • It depends on the girls values and confidence in their own body. I mean I know a lot of girls, especially in high school that like to show off their cleavage because they know they've got the bust and aren't shy to pop it out. Others just like the style of clothing that is more revealing and then there are the girls that are more reserved. It just really depends on the type of girl and how she feels about herself. Not saying that reserved girls don't feel good about themselves but they have other reasons not to show off cleavage too. Girls like to show cleavage also to attract men and especially the guys they like.

  • I know girls and women alike that do this.

    I will be honest with you and say that as a girl, I've done it, too. I can't really generalize and say that all girls love showing their cleavage, because everyone is different. Some do mind, some don't.

    I think she was probably interested in you. Maybe it's just me that thinks that, though.

  • Some girls like me are just bigger in the chest area so dealing with tshirts that you can see down or pulling the shirt up and fussing with it all the time just get veryy annoying and its not like we can wear sweatshirts all year. So if you get a cleavage shot oh well . Because trust me after fussing around with tshirts for years is a waste of time!

  • i show cleavage on purpose and will try to make it noticeable to a guy I like

    • Whoahhh down arrow. just being honest. I don't like bare it all but I'm not going to dress like a nun either. I like being noticed I guess. whatev =)

  • They are fully aware. Let's be honest here, girls are masters' at getting attention. The girls who dress provocatively are the professional attention seekers. They flaunt their goodies, and use the attention as a confidence booster.

    Some girls go for the more conservative look and cover up, while others will do anything to be noticed.

    Most girls are pretty much obsessed with their image and being judged by others. It's sort of sad.
