    By the way, it is normal to read and read a thread to see if you have had a like. And it is normal to be disappointed when it doesn't happen.

    go on.

    look back through the thread.

    If you feel threatened by women dressed in short/tight clothes, that's not their fault, that's an issue with you and/or your relationship.
    I certainly am not trying to attract a partner. I have one. My dress sense has nothing to do with anyone but me and my comfort/likes.
    I never said my theory applied to 100% of the population. As a woman who was engaged at 18 Id say that you were in the minority and as a result weren't a real strong candidate for my theory.

    You don't have to agree with me, I don't care. But I have not changed my mind. I think that the majority of young *non married/engaged* girls who dress scantily are trying to pull a bit of action. You just have to look at the 20 inch stilettos that accompany the bum eating dresses to know comfort isn't their primary objective.

    Haven't read through the replies yet, but I don't see a problem with it.. In Summer Bay it would be acceptable for her to just wear a bikini wouldn't it? It's a beachy place..

    Clothes don't phase me, I am huge and don't wear it, but have lived on the same street as a beach and saw people wearing stuff like that everyday, well when warm anyway.. If someone's comfy wearing little clothing, more power to em!

    You are generalising a fair bit though. I wasn't married until 27, I wear stillettos the majority of my work days (and if going out, but not just to pick the kids up from school).

    I maintain, it's dangerous to assume what a majority does or why they do it, just because of what you know about a minority of any group.....

    I have many issues with the "appropriateness" of home and away (given its time slot). What this character is wearing isn't one of them!
    I hate girls calling each other names based on what they wear. In my eyes you can wear what you want. I will admit that I often think "oh she must be cold!" or "I wish I had that confidence"

    In relation to the "teenage girls wear next to nothing to entice men" discussion, I really think not! Most teenage girls want to fit in, not be singled out. So the clothes they wear is based on what others wear.

    The thing I don't get, is why it's ok for certain people to show off their cleavage, but someone like me who has nice legs can't show them off? That its 'nasty' 's*anky' 'tacky' 'cheap' etc etc etc. I believe it's all in the same basket of eggs.
    Cleavage cops the same flack.

    I think it looks tacky but each to their own. I wouldn't wander around with my vag on show but her choice!

    go on.

    look back through the thread.


    i know you want to!
    Lol I too threw in an Alf quote noone noticed! Thread just got serious

    Look, I must admit back in my single days I definitely dressed a little more for attracting guys. But in saying that I still like to look really nice if I go out, not for attention but for me (and for a chance to let DH know what he's got lol).. Now 30 and intend to continue until I can
    I will wear tight clothing or short stuff but not so short you can see what I ate for breakkie. Mainly because I don't have the legs for it these days!

    So you feel the same way about cleavage that you do about short shorts and short skirts/dresses?

    I get what you're saying when generalising mistakes can be made.

    To clarify my theory is based on a culmination of factors, eg:
    - young +
    - not engaged/married +
    - scantily dressed +
    - stilleto's +
    Out nightclubbing
    = *Likely* looking for action.

    Just because one variable (stilletos) applies to you, doesnt mean you not being on the prowl invalidates my whole theory.
