    Do you think women look less feminine when they wear pants than when they wear skirts or dresses?

    Not at all. I think we can look very feminine and/or sexy in pants and then there are all types and styles of those. Maybe that is one of those in the eye of the beholder things. Guess it is just a matter of opinion...and this is mine, lol.

    Absolutely not, it is all about significant hips, tight jeans and figures. The magical 3 measurements and how it is presented. I fell in love at first glance with my better-half when she was not in a dress or skirt. Now I probably would have still fallen love with her whatever she was wearing... However I would argue that it is all about grey matter, hips and breasts...

      I would disagree; to quote Emerson, Lake & Palmer, "Oh What A Lucky  Man He Is."

    It is a matter of how alluring a woman's figure is in the eye of a beholding man, I'd say (speaking from a man's point of view)   A good figure looks good in either pants - that show off her body lines - or a figure-hugging dress.   The wolf-whistle factor is there in either case.

    On the other hand, if a woman is grossly overweight she'd be far better off in a loose-fitting dress than trying to wear jeans.   A good, well cut dress of the right fit can work wonders here.

    But I think most people know this - except, perhaps, those who do not see themselves as objectively as they perhaps could.

    No absolutely not. I could leap and say at times a skirt or dress is more appealing, however not necessarily more feminine.

    No article of clothing is inherently feminine, it's just the associations we've tied to them as a society. So the only real criteria is the woman inside the clothing. But I'm getting hung up on the word 'feminine'. In the sense that it pertains to the female gender, then anything she wears will be feminine. In the sense of gender stereotypes, where feminine refers to something that is petite or gentle, then pants might not qualify. But I'm a feminist, so I like to think of the first definition, which means she would rock anything she wants to wear.

    Wearing pants is probably less feminine than wearing a dress, but both styles carry a lot of feminine appeal. Dresses are more "proper" and ornamental, whereas pants are more slimming and relatable. It just all depends on whether you like your women to look more elaborate and classy, or more down-to-earth and approachable.

    most women are wearing pants in order to show their hour glass figure instead of skirts. Look their their bums, you can see men eyes trailing along

    A woman is a woman wether in skirts or pants. One is the things that distinguishes a woman from a man is her curves and mannerisms. Those things can never be hidden wether she wears pants or skirts. What matters is how she wears them. For eg, a tom-boy will make even a dress or skirt look masculine. Feminism is not solely about dressing, it's more of attitude.

    It depends on the woman's body type and the fit of the pants in addition to the other article of clothing and accessories she may be wearing. I suppose that pattern/material also could play a role.
    Hairstyle, makeup, and demeanor have a bearing as well.
