Wearing sheer see through tops

Why do women wear see through clothes? I wanted to see what kind of discussions this question has stirred around the internet so I googled the question. I’ve noticed that more men seem to ask the question than women. And the majority of men who ask the question seem to have a problem with women wearing see through clothes. Not that they mind the free show; but they seem to think it’s not an appropriate way for women to be dressed in public. What do you think?

My thoughts: I think there’s a little bit of truth to some of the comments about women wearing see through clothes to show off. And when you’re doing something to show off you’re doing it for attention. Even if you’re just trying to get attention for being daring rather than trying to get attention for being sexy, you’re still doing it because you want people to look at you. So there’s some truth to the idea that women wear see through clothes to get attention. But I don’t think it’s the case for every woman who wears see through clothes. I think some women just like the look. Particularly the look of sheer see through tops worn with something appropriate underneath.

On one of my recent trips to my local Goodwill I picked up two sheer see through tops. Well, technically I picked up a semi-sheer top and a see through top. The semi sheer top is the above Forever 21 magenta top. It’s probably looks pretty sheer in bright light considering you can easily see through it if you hold it up to light. But when I put it on it didn’t look that sheer. Then again I’m blind as a bat so I can’t really trust my own vision.

The other top is a New York and Company wine red burgundy sheer see through top. This one is totally see through. But because of the color you can probably make it look more semi-sheer than absolutely see through if your complexion is on the darker side like mine.

So what are your thoughts?
Would you go out in public wearing sheer see through tops? Why do you think some men are against women wearing see through clothing?

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
