Nude Is Not Cool

Let me just say that this is going to be a rant.  If you don't like rants, stop reading now.

What is with fashion now adays?  When did it become cool to wear skirts so short your underwear show and tops so low your bra (or not a bra as is too often the case) hangs out?  When did common decency go out of style?

Admittedly, I can sometimes be a bit prudish, but I'm also no monk.  I love my above-the-knee dresses, I'm perfectly happy in shorts, and, while I'm not always comfortable in spaghetti straps, for some people I think they look great (I don't wear them because they expose my flabby arms).  All that said, there are some things I just don't want to see.

I do not want to see what color your thong is. 

I do not want to see your rear as you lean over to get something.

I do not want to see your bra or your breasts.  A little cleavage can be attractive when done right, but too often it's done horribly, horribly wrong.

I know you have legs.  I know your legs are long.  I don't need you to wear the equivalent of boxer shorts to prove that. 

By the same token, you do not have to wear 4 inch heels to prove you have legs (or feet).

I would much rather see something form fitted, designed for you, and elegant than see your rear hanging out of your skirt.

That's only cute on toddlers, and they're wearing diapers.

Thank you for reading my rant.

  1. Well when you put it like that who can argue.
    I personally think the underwear is meant to be under the clothes. That is why it is called underwear! duh!

    Hey and that goes for the boys too!
