When it comes to fashion, people wear what they think is best for them. How do others see us? Do they like what we wear? Do they like how we wear it? These questions ultimately drive us to want to dress to impress people.
Sometimes people have perceptions about us based on how we dress; wrong or right, people will always hold their beliefs for whatever reasons. Whether we choose to dress to impress others or not isn’t a problem.
For us ladies, most of us dress to impress the men. But are the men really impressed by our dressing? And if they’re impressed, what’s their thought and motive towards us after seeing our dressings?
Some of us expose too much of our skins, cleavages, and some other parts of the body to get the attentions of men. I call that intentional dressing; wearing clothes with an aim. But the question is, do we always get the result we wanted? When the men are attracted to us by our dressings that expose too much of our bodies, do they stick with us?
Okay, ladies, so I asked some male friends what they think of ladies who expose their bodies when they dress, and if they’re attracted to such women who dress to impress them? Would they fall in love or marry a lady who dresses with body revealing clothes to attract them? Below are some of their comments.
“For me, I think ladies are sexually attractive when they expose their bodies. Please mark the words ‘sexually attractive’. I can be sexually attracted to her but I don’t like her and never want to date or marry her. It’s a temptation, and if I fall for it, I can have a few moments with her and it’s over; the fall is for sex and nothing more.” – Emeka Richards
“Of course, there’s an attraction, but momentary. How many people see open porn and don’t want to stare or take a closer look or even enjoy the fantasy? I can enjoy the fun of it, but I can’t get serious with her.” – Tony Adediran
“It depends. If I get to know her and she’s a good-hearted person and of great personalty, I definitely will stick with her. It’s what she probably likes to wear. Whether she’s doing it to impress me or not doesn’t matter so long she’s a good person inwardly. I don’t judge people by their dressings but by their hearts and intelligence.” – Livinus Osas
“It’s a complete turn off for me. Maybe it’s because of my Christian faith. I think the essence of wearing clothes is to cover your body. So, if you’re wearing a dress and your vital or sexually incisive body parts are exposed, then of what use is wearing the dress in the first place? You might as well walk on the street completely nude.” – Dayo Adeyemi
“This is it, if I want a good quality and expensive shirt, I go out in search for it, and I know it’ll not be displayed outside on mannequins to gather dusts. It’s well preserved and protected in the shop, and it’s not for all eyes, but for who is worth it. A lady who wears body revealing clothes is like a cheap dress worn on mannequins and gathering dusts. She gets every tom dick and harry attracted to her. And don’t forget, gold is meant to be mined, and if it’s seen on the surface, then it’s fake.” – Krys Aviomoh
“I think some girls just do it for the fun of it though. It’ll surprise you to find out that that 28 years old girl exposing her body through her dressing is actually still a virgin. On the other hand, those covering themselves, appearing like the mother of Jesus, actually have several sexual partners. I try to get close to people before I can actually judge them. I must confess to you though, it’s never easy staying around a woman wearing a dress that exposes her body without having some silly thoughts: sex will be the most pronounced thought in your head basically.” – Isaac Udoh
“I’m never attracted to a lady wearing body revealing dresses. I’m always like, she’s shown me what she has already, what else do I want to see in her. I’m generally attracted to ladies who dress decently. Trying to dress to impress someone like for instance is pointless, because I’m not moved by a day’s body but by her brains.” – Rasheed Akolapo
As we can see from the comments above, to dress to impress men isn’t really good fashion. A lady should be able to choose the clothing that is appropriate and feels confident wearing. Don’t dress to impress others, wear clothes for the love of fashion and feel great wearing them. Dressing and having great styles is about looking good and feeling good. Dress to impress or not, don’t forget to look good, classy and decent.
In my next article, I’ll be talking about different fashion styles for different occasions.
