Just trying to understand the other gender..this is just a veri general question... 
What do Indian girls think when they wearing revealing clothes, showing cleavage... or tight jeans.. something that could almost highligh the physical characteristics and possibly invite attention in various forms including guys hitting, whistles, cat calls.. nasty comments...etc...etc. There are a lot of those who become conscious if dupatta flies off...others are wearing tight tops for whatever reason... 

What does it mean when unmarried and married do the same...are these supposed to excite the opposite sex... which is kind of  obvious but rally? - would still like to hear what's the kind of spin here.

I have intention of questioning the freedom of girls to do what they want or what they wear.. just trying to understand the mindset...this shouldn't be discussed in context of provoked molestation or rape. 
Also this should be limited to indian grils only to reflect the cultural backfrop...

 I'm glad people have the confidence to wear revealing clothing but sometimes your confidence is NOT very pleasant to look at...Smile...


Just heard Yoga Pants are being re-designed to be less revealing. I'll be keeping an eye on that.Tongue

Seeing which  part of the female body would be considered revealing ?  Only cleavage,  or would it also include the face, eyes, hair, neck, midriff, legs, arms , fingers, or  ankle ? Any of these could be said to "invite"  attention  depending on the person's interest .  You  have included tight clothes that would  highlight the  body form so I suppose that includes  trousers, jeans, leggings, chudidar, skirts, and even sarees  and  kurtis. So the only clothes that  would hide the  physical characteristics  would be a burqa or an astronaut's suit. Would like to know which of these   would make  you feel more comfortable in a female's presence?  Once we have answers  to these questions it may be possible to address the  rest of your  questions.

Personally, I've drifted from wearing skirts, shorts etc to wearing loose salwar kameez now in my life. I don't know what made me wear those... Ofcourse i loved wearing those, loved wearing things "in vogue" .

My personal definition of decency changed. That's what I know about my present preference.

It doesn't make any difference. Yes, people interested will still stare. People also call me "behenji" , my own mother and my relatives call me "appalamma"(very old lady in Telugu), my so-called friends think I'm gone mental and so on.

My understanding is that girls no matter what they wear, will be judged. It's because society objectified her. She's not an individual, she's a thing.

Since you asked a question on married and unmarried... I'll say yes, everyone wants to "present" themselves in a particular way. Even the ones wearing decent or pleasant clothes. What difference does it make? Everyone dressing in any kind of manner do want to create some impression... You cannot find a definite answer for why a girl wears the way she does..it's complex :) so lets leave the girls alone and stop judging her by what she wears, that's much simpler :)

On culture. I think culture is ever changing. I know, it feels great to look like a typical native South Indian...but see, people at large are changing. Culture isnt static. Culture shouldn't be viewed in a narrow perspective. Culture isn't the dress people are supposed wear, it's rather about people doing what they do now, here. The culture is like this at present.

If we wear the "traditional" outfits, it's only out of reverence for our traditions in the past that our ancestors followed. Or something that is our places' perceived "identity". It's because one enjoys and loves "looking" like what is perceived as this/that culture .

Otherwise clothing is simply a matter of personal preference/convenience.

Girls can wear whatever they want. Human rights must be given importance. That is the way forward :)

which part would be revealing... as much as the moral police allows.. and i dont think it requires a debate for that moral vigilante to get into action Smile

See its not about my comfort... but more to do with what the femaile wants to show, hide and highlight...Dont tell me women dont think when they dress up.

I would like females to wear anything that highlights all her physical characteristics...Wink why not.. but that doesnt happen.. someone wants to wear low neck, another one straps that fall off the shoulder or whateve that is.. another one.. her convex butt...the point is all this for what reason.. is this a kind of mating call.. or something?

btw this is more common in women who are under 20 and over 40...I do understand the over 40 mindset... they either give up and dress sloppy especially if they have not been in shape.. or like malaika aora..continue to reveal their physical characteristics and gather attention... but again the question is what is the thought process.. is that married really trying to excite the mailes, say while she is walking rhgouth the mall. or something.. or its just being sadistic... (look you cant have this!!! :) )
kind of attitude!!!?
