    I'm actually not sure what my age has to do with it. I'm assuming if I'm 40 my idea of short / tight / revealing etc is different to someone younger and therefore (just assuming this is the train of thought), more hip.

    Not sure if this helps, but my wardrobe almost entirely comes from City Beach.

    I am certainly aware that when I was 20 I never dreamed I'd be wearing the same brands / types of clothes that I wore then, 20 years later.

    Being 40, doesn't mean you're old and not "with it"

    However, with "older age" I've come to realise that you can never assume the motives behind why certain people do what they do. You can only know the motives behind what you do yourself.

    When I was younger, the way I was dressed was influenced a lot by my peers and what we felt signified "our group". In different "groups" what is seen to attract the opposite sex (or the same sex) is different.

    Eg. If I was a goth, then I would have thought I'd be more attractive to a potential love interest if I wore longer darker clothes with boots

    I was cold too until I was working outside, it was quite nice in the sun. Perhaps it's because she is from England so yesterday would have been considered hot in her terms?

    I'm 23, guess that makes my reasons for wearing short/tight clothes different to Pegasus' reasons then?

    My comparison with porn and the scantily clad young girl on home and away: both are dressed for the purpose of creating sexual attraction. Merchandising of the product so to speak.
    The difference between my opinion and your opinion is that I believe that most clothing on the market could be interpreted that it's to attract someone as a partner.

    But different groups create different markets.

    Eg. Surfer look, rock look, goth look, mod look, prep look, boho look, hippy look, sporty look, elegant/sophisticated look....(I'm sure I've missed some).

    The problem is that it seems you are associating the "surfer look" with pron, and that is not my experience. (Maybe I've just seen entirely different pron to you)

    I think people are still shocked but for different reasons.

    If Nanna with her saggy boobs walks down the street topless then people go "ewww that's unattractive."

    If Miranda Kerr walks down the street topless the men think "Oh she looks awesome I wouldn't mind a bit of that" which leads the women to think "Oh no, she's purposely trying to entice my man for a r00t and its working... *****!"

    I think bottom line is people are uncomfortable when they *perceive* other people to be putting extremely private things/thoughts out there for public display (eg the desire to bed a man). Could people be mis-interpreting another womans motives? Absolutley. I don't think the intentions of the Home and Away clothing crew have been Mis-interpreted in this case though.

    Sorry...your signature doesn't appear in your posts, had to click on your profile. Your age of 40 fits in with my theory.

    The only person saying that they were the intentions of the Home and Away clothing crew is yourself. So while others have said - no problem, you've continued to say that you know the intentions of the clothing crew. However, this seems in conflict with the other posters in this thread, where the majority of the replies I've seen in this thread say that she was dressed appropriately if she was coming off the beach etc.
