In some places, short dresses have received a bad reputation. Sometimes, the appearance of a short dress seems to suggest that the woman sporting the dress is being provocative and might be an easy score. It takes a lot of courage and class, though, to pull off the tasteful short dress. Not everyone can do it.
It is never clear from one location to another exactly what constitutes “short” dresses. The unspoken rule of dresses and skirt lengths being no shorter than one inch above the knee exists in some workplaces. Although in other places it could be mid-thigh length. In still other more conservative places, any length that shows a kneecap is too short.
University students in Sao Paulo, Brazil recently protested after a fellow student was asked to leave as her hem line was too short. Ironic in that this country is well know for bikinis and free spirited women Military police escorted the student off campus and required her to wear a coat to cover up. The dress that she was wearing was mid thigh in length. Being punished for wearing a short dress incensed many people as this event was minimal compared to the festivals that condone nudity in the country.
Short dresses in the U.S. send a clear signal from most who wear them. A woman is stating that she is confident about her body, she feels free to be more revealing, and she is not afraid of the risk involved in wearing the dress. This is not to say there are not those who might wear a dress for the sheer purpose of seduction. These short dress wearers abound, too, and some choose distasteful ways to honor the dress. The short dress, though, should not get a bad rap for the attractive, feminine features it showcases in a woman.
