A clothing question
Posted 8/6/16 , edited 8/6/16
Hey guys and gals!

I have a question and I would like to get male and female points of view pleaseeee :)

The question is this: If your gf/significant other wanted to wear clothes that you didn't approve of due to the amount of skin showing how would you feel/react? Also, these clothes would be worn in public without you around.

Guys: Would you be ok with your gf/significant other doing this? How would you feel if she said she was going to do it regardless of what you thought?

Girls: What do you think of this statement? Do you agree? Disagree? Would you do it regardless of what your bf/significant other thought?

Please explain the thoughts behind your answer.

Thank you so much :)

Edit: Thanks so much everyone for your responses. I really appreciate it. Just for clarification, this isn't about skin showing in general. I couldn't care less about skin when we are together. The issue I bring to the table is the clothes she wears out when I'm not around. Some of these items include open back halter tops and shirts with slits in the center so that cleavage is clearly visible.

Why would i stay in a relationship that may be unstable?
Sure the girl can wear whatever she wants, but dont count me to support it.

I think taking your partner's opinion into consideration is respectful but in the end I would wear whatever I wanted to wear, it's my decision.

I guess the most reasonable thing to do would be to respectfully point out that her clothes seem to be fairly revealing. Ultimately, if she's not bothered by it, then I don't see any reason why I should be bothered by it either.

If my gf was about to go out to dinner wearing a tutu, flippers and a bobble hat I might say something because well, lets face it no one wants to be seen out with one of "those" types of girls...

Seriously though, how insecure or ultra conservative would I have to be to in 2016 to worry about whether my gf wants to show off cleavage or whatever. What do I care about other peoples opinions?

Surely they were dressing like that before you got together, why should they change that for you're hang ups?

(And by you in that last point I mean a person who has an issue like this not necessarily a specific you).

i would probably comply with his wishes, long as they aren't unreasonable (have to cover head, wear long skirts, etc). i'm not so selfish as to completely disregard his opinion, especially since he would be someone i loved and cared about.

besides i would like to think it's because he doesn't want other guys ogling me, and i kinda like a jealous and possessive man

I agree it's okay for a guy to tell their girlfriend they don't like how revealing their clothes are. After all, she is supposed to show off for you and for her. Not to impress other people how great her body is. Also I don't think it's okay for other guys to be jacking of to the gf.
Same for the boyfriend. If he is dressing like a sloth at a formal event of course I will tell him.
Both parties are supposed to be dressed well for a specific event, not twerking on people.

Clothing isn't a big deal enough to concern me. I'd say my opinion, but honestly? It's their choice, and rarely worth fighting over. At worst I'd attempt a compromise.

it would have to be a more specific issue other then showing skin i think to make me have a issue with whatever my theoretical gf is wearing
