a bit Hiya kind of question, but whatever.
if u watch fashion shows, the message u get from there is that if a woman is only skin and bones, she can wear just about anything, cos all would look great on her. how stupid!
in my opinion those anorexic looking girls are anything but beautiful. anyway, ive seen many "fat" and fat women who were extremely attractive and could wear very provocative clothes.
so my question to u is how do u define a good looking body? what r the factors? cos the definition of beauty varies from one country to another, not to mention that we all perceive beauty and ugliness in a different way.
as for what are the "hidden" reasons of women for dressing in one way or the other, they are the same as for men. only more spectacular because of the larger variety of clothes we can wear. as a woman i can put on some tight pants for ex. because they look good on me, cos i wanna please my man and cos it makes me feel good to see that other men like what they see. these reasons can come separately or all together.
some say, women dress for other women, not men
. pick what u like
and like i said before, this goes both for men and women. the times when a guy could look in whatever way, stink, be untidy and be forgiven just cos he is a man, are gone.
