Ladies and The Negative Side of Indecent Dressing

Indecent dressing simply means deliberate
exposure of one’s body to the public. This
practice is contrary to the acceptable
norms and values of the society.
Moral decadence on the other is a
reduction in the level of morality in the
society. Do you observe that most (ladies)
had gone haywire all in the name of the
The other day I screamed when I saw a girl
whose parent barely fed well, dressed with
half of her breast and buttocks outside.
The trouser she wore is such that half of
her buttock was out, with beads and
terrible make ups and I heard her mum
telling her “to have a nice day.”
Some girls have been embarrassed and
even abused because of their outrageous
Indecent dressing is the major cause of the
various assault and sexual harassment
recorded in the society, over time. As a
result of civilization, Nigeria ladies dress
half naked to occasions all in the name of
fashion’ and this is contrary to the prestige
placed on African women. For instance
Nigeria ladies derive pleasure in wearing
cloth such as mini skirt, bumper short,
armless e.t.c.
As a lady you must be cautious of the kind
of clothes you put on. Do you know your
dress create impression about you either
positively or negatively in the heart of
Your dress could show if you are
responsible or irresponsible, serious
minded or unserious. Dressing in a
manner that parents, society and religion
frown at is not civilization. The way you
dress show whether you are respected or
Most ladies now walk on the street half
naked, with tattered clothes all in the name
of fashion. Also, some innocent guys have
been arrested along with armed robbers
just because of the way they dressed.
I see no reason why a child from a good
home should relax or keep dreadlocks,
piercing his ears all in the name of fashion.
There is a saying that “you are addressed
because of the way you dressed.”
Nowadays, different styles of dressing are
in vogue – low west, hot bosom, sagging
etc. All these have the society’s moral value
to its lowest ebb.
In a nation that is endowed with varieties of
culture and traditions, it is annoying seeing
this culture and traditions going into
extinction. Nigerians find it difficult to
dress in their local attire as it is regarded
as “old and archaic.”
Indecent dressing is an habit embraced by
all ages in the society. It has been
inculcated by both the young and the old.
It is common among celebrities,
particularly among artistes. This set of
people, while on stage will want to look
unique and in the process turned
themselves into lunatic.
They wear tattered jean with holes, tight
fitting shirt, some even go to the extent of
wearing ordinary pant while on stage. All
this is the cause of juvenile delinquency.
Most of the under age children engage in
early sex as a result of what they watch on
Television as well as what they saw among
their older siblings.
Sadly, most ladies have been sexually
abused because of their mode of dressing.
The question is: who do we blame for these
social malady – the parents, the society or
the peer groups?
