Yes i think it depends where you are becuase you can offend someone else or their culture and you can look bad. If u turn up to work in a skimpy dress thats a no go.

Females can wear what they want but should be careful when going on a night out or whatever so therefore they should cover up a bit more

Everyone is saying this, so I'm not exactly being creative, but it depends on the situation, i.e weather, religious beliefs, and other factors. It's also completely optional, and it is up to the woman herself, but there are definitely situations where covering up would be.. recommended. Because, well, no-one wants you to wear short shorts in the winter. You'll freeze to death. Please stop.

Does anyone think you should change the way you dress depending on the occasion and location for example: workplace, country, a religious place of worship, funeral/wedding etc?... What is your thoughts?

Only if you want to. If you don't want to change then there's no relevant 'should' about it.

@LoveU

I agree with you based on the factor of common sense, and that maybe thinking about children or people who are sensitive to nudity would be the right thing to do

It is not natural for the stigma about naked people, we where naked for billions of years before we became domesticated retards who are afraid of our own bodies being seen because of the uglyness of the modern slave human with no nutrients and sickness.

Hi thank you for your answer, do you think that in this day and age it is okay to walk around in public half naked?

There are videos you can find videos on YouTube of people being naked or "half-naked" in public. It is only "weird" because it is violating social norms that your brain has been conditioned to accept. If you grew up conditioned seeing this in public all the time (people wearing whatever they want or nothing at all), you would simply think that "this is the way things are" and "why should people have to cover their bodies if they don't want to" or simply, it would be "normal"

@Sv3rige. I agree. This is all about social stigma and taboo in our modern world. There is nothing intrinsically "weird" about naked people and therefore needing to cover up. Also, the social rules about what to wear under what circumstances are completely arbitrary (I'm not a fan of "tradition"). I think women, and people generally, should be able to wear whatever they want, whenever they want, under any social circumstance. Obviously, some conditions there will be types of clothing that are more "appropriate" for the weather say, but this is very different than being "appropriate" due to societal norms under certain circumstances.

Hi Dermot, Thank you for your answer. I agree with somewhat of your argument but i would like to know if you still think you should have a "if you got it flaunt it" attitude if you are at a funeral, religious location or at a workplace setting?

What are your thoughts?

Hi Sarah . a funeral , a church or the workplace brings different criteria into the equation as it's no longer solely about us as we all accept social " constraints " ( although unsaid ) that apply

I don't like how the question is specifically about women. Everyone should be allowed to wear whatever they want regardless of gender. I think it applies to both. Just as I wouldn't care if women wore them, I don't care if men do. If they feel comfortable showing their body off, it's up to them.

Thank you for your answer. i agree that everyone should be able to wear what they want but do you think it depends where you are and the occasion for example: a religious place of worship, country, workplace, funeral/wedding etc?... What is your thoughts?

That is complete not what I was saying. No, I don't think anyone should wear crop tops at a funeral but the question said IN PUBLIC so if you'd like to read the question thoroughly before challenging me, that'd be super.

Smart attire appropriate to the occasion should be the order of the day for both men and women.

Dress code for a night out at Champagne Charlies would be totally unsuitable at a Remembrance Ceremony.

I agree, I feel you have to dress appropriately for the situation that you are in.

The most burning reason behind this should be, We are fools to think that a woman's prestige is linked with her body or her attire.

Thank you for your answer. Why do you think people in society think like this?

Side: Should cover up in public

Those who have a lot to be modest about should cover up well.

In extreme cases, those to whom I refer to as ''two baggers'' (women who are so ugly that they should wear two bags over their head and face in case one falls off, as, apparently is the case with Muslim women) they should cover themselves with a head to toe body masking garment such as the hijab, as once again we see with Muslim women.

Normal women like to be 'looked at admiringly', NOT OGLED AT, so they should dress accordingly,( as most do) and men like to look at attractive women.

In various forms this custom and practise has been going on since the dawn of time.

If a woman wants to show me the goods I'm not going to stop her.

I'm a big fan of the saying, "there is a time and a place for everything."

There will always be places with certain dress codes. Work, school, certain social events, churches....they all require a bit more effort in dress and care.

Otherwise, wear what you want within reason. This applies to both genders though.
