The Less Skin You Show the More Attractive You Are

Updated on March 28, 2016

These days, many young women don't feel fashionably sexy without exposing a bit more skin. But the bit more comes out a lot more that seems the more skin showing the more attractive it looks like, right? Well, no.

Girls need to understand what they wear sends a message. Showing more skin may catch even the farthest naked eye, but it's not the best way to look fabulous. Less skin proves that it's possible to be sexy without showing a whole lot of skin.

Some Skin Once in a While

Less skin is modesty.

What looks appropriately modest and what doesn't may raise different opinions depending on one's own individuality, but as far as modestly goes, dressing appropriately is dressing with less skin showing.

Fashion today have gotten too provocative. Stylish tops have gone with very low necks showing so much cleavage, or too short clothing bringing girls to walk around with their butts hanging out from their too short mini skirts and shorts. If men have been going backward with the masculine rules that it's inappropriate for them to wear short shorts, they found it hard to understand how it has become appropriate for women to wear the shortest of shorts that reveal almost everything.

With the fad on more skin exposed, I think there's nothing wrong with taking pride in your appearance, provided you don't overdo it. I am for showing some skin too as its airy and free, but not as much as possible. I made myself my own golden rule, if I wear something above the knee the top MUST go conservative, or something with sleeves. If I were to wear a halter top or a backless I would always wear something that falls an inch below the knee, or I'd wear jeans.

If you have well toned-up legs, wearing short shorts can bring an inspiration of total beauty as long as you wear the outfit to appropriate places. I think showing "some" legs and back once in a while is considerably sexy...but bust and butts? That I think is overrated!

Why Less Skin Is Sexy

Men and women kind of agree that when you show a lot of skin, you can send the wrong message and get the wrong type of attention. But with less skin? They find a bit of mystery that makes it sexier.

Guys also find girls who don't show everything off in order to gain their attention charmingly sweet and irresistible and they'll do everything to connect. You probably know of a lot of guys that think more skin is attractive yet they find it unattractive for their girlfriends or wives to wear revealing tops and jeans.

This plainly comes down to one thing - guys are actually attracted to modest clothing.

What the World Says About Less Skin

There are so many ways of being sexy without half undressing yourself. If you're a young woman, don't worry if you're not getting the attention other girls gain by the manner they dress. Thinking beautiful with what you wear will make you feel good, and it's a lot better to be liked with your modest charm and sweet looks.

It pays to be a role model and teach other girls how to dress with grace and elegance. Not just that, you can shine more by wearing something that's fashionably sexy yet modestly stylish. Now do you know what is it about showing less skin that can even make you sexier?

That sexy attitude! :)

      I don''t think self respect comes from how much skin you show or don't.

      Well said sir. There is nothing controlling about mentioning to a woman (if she respects you) to cover herself up a little bit. Less is more and I loved this article.

      Dear Tonipet

      Thank you so much for writing this. I'm a young man and I grew up in a booming city where it was common for women to wear such clothing. Throughout my teenage years, my male friends and I used to look at women dressed in revealing clothes and enjoy the sight for sexual reasons. I grew up thinking this was acceptable.

      When I was around 19, I realized how wrong I was and that women can be beautiful human beings aside from the physicality of things. When I realized this, I worked consciously to eradicate my habit of thinking of women sexually or as sexual objects. I'm proud to say that I did overcome this problem but with great difficulty. I had to adopt strict discipline to control myself. This was to the point that I had to control my eyes and my thoughts in public. It was really difficult.

      But even after I successfully overcame this habit, I still found it hard to be a man and to go through life without thinking of women sexually all the time- mainly because everywhere I went women were mostly dressed so revealingly. How I wished women (in general) covered more of their skin so that I could carry on being a good man without so much difficulty.

      So yes, women should dress modestly to maintain their own dignity and to show beauty that isn't in their physicality. But women should also dress modestly to help men respect women.

      I have tried many times to talk to my female friends (who sometimes dress revealingly) about this but I have always gotten negative responses such as I'm being "too controlling" or that I should "get over it". I don't think I am. I'm just trying to be a better man and need the help of women to do so.

      Anyway, thank you so much for writing this. It really means a lot for me that a woman feels this way.

      Hello Lakeshya burks. You're right, when young girls turn into young ladies and they do things better, especially in what they wear, they are leading by examples. Beauty starts in the mind. Thank you for reading my hub and for the comment. I wish you a lovely day. :=)-Tonette

      Thank you Express10. There is nothing better than knowing how to dress appropriately. Like you said, it makes bending over or stooping down to pick something up so difficult when in fact, clothing can actually be worn lot convenient and better in the right places. Sometimes, thinking twice helps A LOT :=)Thank you so much for leaving a very insightful comment. Cheers! -Tonette

      I agree wholeheartedly. I see girls and grown women wearing the equivalent of tee shirts yet, they call them dresses. These things barely cover their buttocks and breasts. GOD help them if they want to sneeze or need to bend over or stoop down to pick something up.

      Hello 2patricias. With the so modern fashion today, it's hightime we take back the pride for elegant dressing by the proper decorum, and to be prude is I think the perfect attitude to begin with. Thank you for stopping. I too enjoyed learning how to read some basic Italian words, thanks to you. Glad to meet you two here.

      There is far too much flesh on display. It's not that I am a prude, but I am a fan of elegance.

      Nonna, thank you very much. I'm with you that a lot of men may not agree but I am sure they like to be a bit intrigued. Perhaps just the mystical sense of appropriate dressing. I salute your strong dedication to service and how I would love to be inspired too, I'd sure would be stopping at your Nonna's House of Productions.

      I'm excited for fresh things and ideas for my sleeping organization. Thank you again Dee or Nonna:=), you're wonderful. Keep up!

      I do agree and think this is true. I think men might not agree but I also think they are a little intrigued by a woman who is a little mysterious in the way she dress, speak, act, etc. Good hub.
