    So can I clarify, your theory is that young (specifically around 18), girls who wear skimpy clothes all the time (assumption as you can't know how often they wear that type of clothing from seeing them once), remind you of prostitutes and pron stars and are only doing so to attract a mate by wearing something which will "get their rocks off"?

    It just seems that any person who says they wear skimpy clothes, but do it for comfort, or that they aren't doing it to attract a partner or whatever, is explained away by making your criteria more specific.

    I've suggested that different groups of people like different ways of dressing and therefore skimpy clothing isn't going to attract them.

    I'm still perplexed about the pron star /prostitute reference made in the original post.
    Not quite there. Mainly right, a few errors let me clarify:

    The *majority* of the time, when a young (18ish) single person wears skimpy attire, they are (either consciously or subconsciously) after attention, most likely a bit of action. When an older person wears skimpy clothing then the *majority* of the time they do it for different reasons, such as comfort or practicality.

    Regarding the reference to porn: *I* believe the girl in the home and away picture was dressed skimpily for similar reasons to why porn stars dress skimpily: to attract the Attention of male 'customers'.

    I am hoping this explanation finally clarifies things. I think you understand overall where I am coming from, even if you dont get 100% of the specifics. It is ok if you dont agree, but I do not want to get into a tit-for-tat exchange aimed at proving the other side wrong. It's ok that we disagree.

    I freely admit to dressing very scanitly when I was 18 (and probably right up until 30). It was never about attention for me, more about fashion and what I liked. Im not as comfortable with my body after kids which is why I stopped.

    Looks like a top not a dress to me!

    I've seen Indi wear some shockers too.

    Thank you for clarifying. Was just making sure I was disagreeing on grounds that I was understanding where you are coming from.

    I agree that we can disagree Now you've clarified, we both know each others thoughts on the issue and they can agree to disagree.

    Lauzy, I agree, it's a long tank top - never thought it was a dress, that's why it gives the impression she's just come in from the beach.

    I have only read the last few posts but have to admit that when I was younger,or even now, and if I had the body I would have worn skimpy clothing at times and it would have been to get male attention.

    Even without a good body I would always wear a push up bra and low top for the same reason when heading out at night (and will occassionally do it now).
