What Exactly is Indecent Dressing?

WHAT IS A QUALIFICATION FOR INDECENT DRESSING

Many a times, we have over laboured the topic of indecent dressing in our societies. But the Multibillion dollar question still lingers in my mind every day. what is indecent dressing? how well should a girl or a boy dress to make everybody appreciate the outfit.how short or transparent is a dress to be considered indecent. I want to know so we can put an end to this everliving but no impact topic

The idea of “indecent dressing” varies from country to country. A while ago most men and women in Africa used to be walking around almost naked and it was not considered “indecent” by the local culture. It was certainly considered so by the colonists, so Africans acquired their standards in dressing and “decency”. However, presently the history has taken a funny turn. Those very Europeans, who dressed up Africans now are “undressing” them introducing their modern fashion and standards. “decency” is a cultural and religious concept and it has to be viewed in relation to that local culture and belief.

a lot of women today unfortunately do not know the difference between decent and indecent dressing.

they see video vixens on tv and think that's how to dress.

then they complain when their boyfriends who drool over uncovered b.reasts, run after any woman with the same.

you want to be eating your cake and having it?

they also wonder why even with every bit of their body showing, they still cant get a man.

even ladies covered in hijab from head to toe, still have more suitors than them.

who defines 'too tight' and 'too short'?

what is classified as 'almost all your body'?

in the 20's and 30's seeing a woman's calf was seen as 'indecent' now its no longer the same

where does one's personal liberty to dress freely end and the rights of others not to be visually assaulted begin?

I guess this has turned to ladies affair.

I dont know how to consider any lady as dressing indecently.

No guy wants his girl to look like a 60yrs old woman all in the name of dressing

decently. Personally I want my girl to appear sexy anytime any day

So long she does not go Unclad.

This issue is relative and subjective; it depends on your values/beliefs. Everyone has a standard with which they make comparisons.

Being a christian, the Bible is my standard and even though it isn't explicit about which clothes are indecent, I think the Bible is saying we should care enough about others to not wear things that can tempt them to sin.

I believe that many, if not most, men do not need a catalyst to get them tempted. Afterall, tomato and pepper sellers who dress shabbily get pregnant. I'm cautious about what I wear not because of anybody but because God expects it, and because it gives a better impression of me (at least within my circle of family and friends).

For me, indecent dressing is wearing things i wouldn't want my parents, chuch ppl etc. to see me in. Or wearing things my conscience doesnt agree with.

indecent dressing is not wearing skimpy clothes

personally i think it is when

you wear the wrong clothes to the right places

like wearing a suit to a party

and showing up in a mini at the office.

when it should have been vice versa

please dont mistake indecent for sexy ooo, Would you call wearing a pant on the beach/pool side indecent? or would you call wearing a mini micro with a spag indecent? For me there is Sexy and Indecent. in a nut shell i would call em all sexy since it arouses your loins, it is sexy not indecent. Indecent is wearing what does not fits you "My own Def"

hhhmmmm, INdecent dressing, mostly have to do with females, but a lot of guys dress odd too:

here:

- partially exposing what should naturally and ideally be covered(male/female privates, "avenues/high-ways" leading to male/female privates)

- totally exposing what should naturally and ideally be covered(male/female privates, "avenues/high-ways" leading to male/female privates)

- clothes that will make the same/opposite sex to lust after the indecently dressed. Note: Appreciation is different from Lusting.

- clothes that spell "S-E-X", example ive come across a lot of ladies wearing short blouses with some other drawing, or sowed-on fabric, depicting a scene like, something like ones arms, as if the arms were grabbing their bosoms, or others with other inscriptions that make you look at the lady as a sex object.

- for guys, ive seen a guy who wore a T-shirt an arrow pointing downwards with the writing: "Girls, this road leads to your happiness", i found it very insultive.

- what i call "color-riot" is dressing up in such a way where you can count like 10/more colors, and such that makes the person an instant object of peoples attention.

- dressing wrongly for occassions/events: ex: wearing bathroom slippers to church, and other oddities.

- Its not by force to be a hiphop guy, abi. Too many 50cents guys in nigeria and I pity them, a lot of nija guys i came across in Nigeria, its like this: 12noon, the sun is blazing hot, then u see this guy, wearing low-down, waste hanging jeans, has a turtle-neck t-shirt underneath a snow-jacket, with a head-band, and a dark sunshades, with a base-ball cap. Im like, dont you feel hot, besides it doesnt snow in Nigeria, abi,

I feel we should all just be sincere with ourselves. I am pretty convinced that we all know when a girl is dressed indecently, we all know this and so lets keep this known to ourselves and go talk abt som' else

In a period not quite long ago and maybe still in some African cultures, women used to walk around the village Coverless, without raising any eyebrow. Is indecent dressing/exposure dependent on time and place? I should think so.

I think indecent dressing intentionally baring a few things to attract attention.It is a true fact that certain dresses are meant for certain occassions but when you begin to deviate by wearing some of these dresses to church, class, or other events not suitable ,then it is indecent.

If you meet a woman baring some flesh at a party, I think you won't be gutted, but if you see her in church,

Indecent dressing is also notb gender specific.

Indecent dressing is simply wearing what is not right to a particular occasion e.g

wearing a flowing agbada to a corporate office.

wearing red sox on a blue jeans and a yellow top.

wearing a dinner gown to a church service.

wearing bikini to a corporate setting e.t.c

just dress nice in attire that suit the occasion.

It is "word" because she supported you.

Ocho actually makes absolute sense here. Guys that sag know that their dressing is indecent (I have friends like that). Why do you think a guy wouldn't wear his trousers all the way down at his knee cap and his entire boxer shorts hanging out to a company where he  needs a job? Or why do you think a guy will find it very difficult to introduce his wife whose bosoms are almost falling out of her clothes to his parents as a wife?

@ lauryn, do you believe there's no indecent dressing?

I can't believe someone is saying there's no such thing as indecent dressing. I wonder what the world is becoming. Do you know that there are people who do things that are bad and they know it, yet they keep doing it due to their selfish motives.

Wake up people, there is something called indecent dressing.

Well to them its decent, so i guess we have to accept them for who they are by not judging them. Every dressing or indecent dressing is a style or fashion to others

just what looks exactly like a bra and pantties, would you still believe that that's a decent form of dressing? or say you saw a guy with his troussers all the way down at his knee cap and his entire boxer shorts hanging out, does that still look decent to you? i'm not trying to define indecent dressing or anything, rather, i'm giving you examples of what sure does look indecent. My point is, there is such a thing as indecent dressing.

I believe there's no such thing as indecent dressing. If u put on an outfit and u think u look fabolous in it, then u do, put then other peeps might find it offensive and INDECENT. but on ur mind its right.

The main point is u feel good about urself, the words of MAN shouldnt put u down.

Hmm indecent dressing.Well, indecent dressing in anything that connotes overt sexuality in public.Things meant to be unseen are made visible by such dressing. Thanks for schools like Covenant University that have taken it upon themselves to check this anomaly before it ruins our girls.

In short, Indecent Dressing is the type of dressing that exposes the parts or outlines of the parts of the body which, on a good day, cannot be totally revealed by the 'wearer', as it is considered PRIVATE.

I believe indecent dressing is any dress code that reveals your ''SEX PARTS''  the bosoms,

hips, tommy etc. as a woman. And as a guy indecent dressing is wearing boxers out and putting on sleeveless that shows your chest esp. when hairy.

As I said on the other thread, it's really funny how ladies prefer to be called "SEXY", but they flare up when referred to as "SEX THINGS". They belong to the same category afterall.

Quoting aqua, Indecent Dressing is any dressing that shows Tip outlines, undies outline, bosom outline (different from bosom shape o), Bottom outline, bra outline, bra shape, womanliness outline and the last, cleavages. Infact, any outline that connotes sex is indecent to me.

(I had to do some editing.)

ha ha seeni4ever u got me laughing when u said wearing bikini to church. anyway indecent dressing depends on your definition of indecent. To some people, a skirt at the knee level is indecent whereas to others like the high skool i attended, a skirt becomes  indecent when it is shorter than her hands when she stands at attention. someone raised a question that how can guys be indecent. well since we are discussing indecent not sexy or body type, a guy could be indecent when he saggs his pants, wears bandana, and all those scarfs. but again it depends on the occassion.

indecent dressing comes in many ways for example someone wearing agbada to a tea party or someone wearring a winter jacket to spring break. indecent dress or dressing can be determine by the type off event or the place you are going. wearing a bikini to church is indecent but to miami beach that is the best.

Guys..... it's "Dressing 101."  Wearing improper attire to a proper occassion is indecent dressing.  I agreed with an author on this forum who said "different occassions calls for different dressing."  As a female, I am disgusted to see some females dressing improperly even when there is no occassion.  With respect to the ladies in nigeria, I must say..... some females in nigeria has taken fashion to another level by trying to immitate the western world. 

Ladies, if we want guys to respect us, we have to dress respectfully.  When I go to work, my dressing is biz casual sometimes suits.  When I go to evening dinners is gowns or short dresses that shows my figure w/skin showing and my hair either down or pulled up.  When I go to birthday parties is either sexy dresses that shows my figures with skin showing or a top w/short mini-skirts with or without high knee boots.  Now when I go clubbing with my girls, it's once again either short skirts or jeans; 75% is jeans with sexy tops without my bosoms hanging out.....

The above description of my dressing is not indecent dressing.  It's call sophisticated and sexy dressing.

Regards,

IB

Left to me, I don't think there is anything like indecent dressing talking about boys. Indecent girls are to me the most admired in this country which means they are too sexy on the other hand. For boys, it's our time and when the time comes for proper official dressing, Nobody needs to be taught.
