Women Can Dress However They Want, Stop Judging Them

Just because she has on a limited amount of clothing doesn't mean she is less than a person.

Women Can Dress However They Want, Stop Judging Them

Nothing bothers me more than seeing women tear another woman down because of how she is dressed. And I'm not talking about wearing sweatpants and a t-shirt, I'm talking that skirt with a tube tope. Her "goods" are covered, and she is not showing anything that is considered private. So why are you making faces at her and saying things along the lines of "she looks so slutty."

First off, it's 2020. It should not be frowned upon when women show a little skin. We are proud of our bodies and it has been instilled in us that we must be confident, so we are. Second, why tear someone else down to feel better about yourself? I promise it's not going to change your inside or outside appearance, only you can change that. We as women should be lifting one another up and pushing each other to be individual and doing the small things that make us feel beautiful. Even if it's a crop top.

If you have no desire to dress frugal, that's totally fine. That's what makes you happy and feel confident so by all means, go for it. But don't judge someone else because you choose not to.

This also goes for the girls who say things such as "she's a prude" because someone wears jeans and a cardigan. Just because you decide to dress less conservative doesn't make you "cooler" or "better."

We have to start showing support for each other, all women supporting all women.

So what if sis has on a cute top that accentuates her curves? Tell her she looks good and move on. If sis has on a maxi dress with a sweater, tell her she's beautiful and move on. Have something positive to say to everyone, especially your fellow woman. It's hard to find confidence in today's society, we can't make everyone happy. There are so many cruel people out there that will put you down for the clothes that are on your body. Don't be one of those. Be kind.

Yes, it is 2020 and girls do find it appealing to wear a see-through shirt with a bralette, smile and move on. Maybe last week someone told her that her breasts were too small, and she felt insecure and now she's showing the world that she's not flat chested, and that okay. Don't say degrading things to women if you don't want them to retaliate. And they are not degrading themselves by flaunting, there is nothing about the human body to be embarrassed about.

Men, especially men, stop degrading woman for the way a woman chooses to dress. It's none of your business how she decides to dress, whether it's "too revealing" or "not revealing enough", it has absolutely nothing to do with you. Stop making it about you.

Women, boost each other's confidence. Some days that's all we have, each other.
