What is Inappropriate Clothing

Womens clothing as we understood are normally more revealing. But, is what your girlfriend wearing outside inappropriate?

Not being appropriate is defined as not being suitable and proper for the occasion. Is your girlfriend wearing a mini skirt and deep crop top out in a restaurant? If she’s giving you the excuse of “It’s just for comfort” make sure that this reason won’t fly.

Note: Women’s items of clothing are normally more revealing, and that is usually ok. But just make sure she is respecting you and herself. My Ex would go out with the most provocative clothing on the most unsuitable occasions. If she continues to do this, it is better to have a talk with her.

The Two Reasons Why Your Girlfriend Wears Revealing Clothing

There are two different responses she will give you, on why she is wearing what she is:

  1. “I wear it for myself and my own comfort” (She will tell you this, and it is true 90% of the time)
  2. “I dress to impress, I love the attention of other men and feeling wanted” (This is for the other 10% of women, She won’t tell you this)

Is It Bad To Wear Revealing Clothes?

In the society we live in now worldwide, people are very vocal and negative towards women that wish to express themselves through their clothing, from their families, friends, and even strangers, women experience a harsh amount of judgment for what they wear.

A woman’s wardrobe is based on a variety of things including, but not limited to comfort, functionality, design, and personal role models. It is not bad or degrading for a woman to wear revealing clothes. Women should be allowed to wear whatever they want without judgment.

It is not what a woman wears that is degrading. When a woman wears more open and revealing clothes it can increase the chances that other people will acts in an immoral and degrading nature towards her.

Unfortunately, many men feel obliged to harass and call girls whatever they want when they wear more revealing clothing.

Jealous When She Wears Revealing Clothes? What to do?

It is totally fine to get jealous when your girlfriend dresses revealing. That is because we men understand and know what other men are thinking when they see a girl wearing revealing clothes. Some men, unfortunately, can not control their natural instincts and harass any girl that has revealing clothes

It can be our protective instincts sometimes, and it can be some jealousy as well.

Thought: Surely if guys were checking out your girl and you knew she was coming home with you, wouldn’t it be a ego boost?

Phrase and address it in a way that’s not controlling of her. Unless before the Relationship you had a conversation with her about changing what she wears, and she promised you that she would change her clothing.

Communicate and say to her respectfully and acknowledging her: “I think you’re the most beautiful woman, but I think that we are in a relationship we should share some parts of ourselves only with each other.

Everything seems to be going good in the relationship, but only for one things. Your girlfriend has started wearing more revealing clothing out of nowhere. What could this mean? There are 2 possible reasons to why this has happened.

1) She is not getting attention and appreciation from you

Sometimes we can get too settled into the relationship and by seeing our girlfriends every day. We forget to admire and compliment her looks, dress, and her new makeup.

If you’re not showing any admiration for her presence, then she’s going to want to seek that validation and attention elsewhere besides you.

2) She is trying new fashion trends.

There comes a time where we all seek new ways to feel better about ourselves. So it’s totally normal if she’s trying out some new fashion trends.
