Hey girls — and I’m talking to you teenagers here — you want to know how to dress so that cute boys will notice you? Just check out this survey by the The Rebelution (“a teenage rebellion against low expectations”) and find out what clothing boys think is a stumbling block for a girl who seeks a modest appearance. Then dress like that.
Some sample results:
- 70% of guys think that showing any cleavage is immodest.
- 71% of guys think seeing even an inch of skin between the bottom of a girl’s shirt and her pants is a stumbling block.
- 48% of guys think a purse with the strap diagonally across the chest draws too much attention to the bust.
- 40% of guys think that shirts or dresses (long or short-sleeved) with slits in the sleeves are a stumbling block.
On the other hand, sweatshirts with messages across the front do not draw too much attention to the bust. So there.
Remember: Use this knowledge only for good.
