It’s normal to feel a little jealous when your girl wears something that shows off her body. After all, you want to be the only one who gets to see her looking so gorgeous.
But it’s important to keep things in perspective. Remember that she’s with you because she wants to be, not because she has to be. And chances are, if she’s wearing something that makes her feel sexy and confident, it’ll only make her more attractive in your eyes. So why ruin her fun and act like a crazy caveman when you can just shut down the insecure voice inside your head and enjoy the day?
In this article, we help you do just that. We will guide you to stop being insecure about what your girlfriend wears, whenever you have these silly little traditional thoughts creeping in.
How to not feel insecure about what your girlfriend wears?
1- Understand that what your girlfriend wears is not about you:
It can be tough when your girlfriend dresses in a way that makes you feel like you’ve been caught off-guard or like she’s showing too much skin.
Maybe she wears something that’s a little too revealing, or maybe she enjoys looking her absolute best and finding flattering outfits that compliment her body type. It’s important to understand that what your girlfriend wears is not about you. She is not trying to make you feel bad or make you feel any type of way indeed.
All she’s doing is living her best life, enjoying her youth, and wearing the clothes that she selected and bought probably with her own money for her own body. So, she is simply expressing her own sense of style and her own sense of confidence. If you can learn to accept and respect her choices, then you will feel more secure in yourself and in your relationship.
2- Don’t even think of mentioning anything to her:
Insecurity is poison in a relationship. If you want your girl to feel good about herself, and about you, don’t even think of mentioning anything to her about what she wears.
It doesn’t matter if she’s wearing a short skirt or a crop top; if she feels good in it, that’s all that should matter to you. No need to make her feel self-conscious or break her heart over something so petty. Compliment her instead on how beautiful she looks, no matter what she’s wearing. Let her feel like you’re proud to be seen with her.
Instead of getting angry or upset, try to be happy to be with a woman that pays great attention to her feminine side and beauty. Understand you’re a lot more fortunate than what you might think, as many people can’t even bring their partners to clean themselves regularly and stay fresh. If you say something nice, chances are, she’ll appreciate your positive attitude and will want to embrace her beauty more.
As long as she feels confident and comfortable in her own skin, that’s all that should mattered to you.
3- Understand that this doesn’t mean that she’s trying to get other guys’ attention:
When you see your girl wearing something that you think is a little too revealing, it’s easy to start feeling insecure. This will happen more if you overthink things and you end up doubting whether she’s trying to get other guys’ attention.
However, it’s important to remember that this isn’t necessarily the case. There are a number of reasons why your girl might choose to wear something that shows off her body. Maybe she’s simply trying to look her best for you or to feel good in her skin. Or maybe she wants to enjoy hey youth and her beauty while she can. After all, none of these precious two things last forever.
Whatever the reasons, it’s important to snap out of this crazy and unbased accusations. Maybe it’s not worth it to make the poor thing adjust her entire wardrobe just to put your mind at ease. If you don’t trust her and doubt that she’s an attention-seeker or that she’ll cheat then no amount of convincing will ever be enough.
In the end, if you really genuinely doubt that she could be seeking other guy’s approval and attention, we recommend you later check this article on how to cope with an attention-seeking partner. But, more often than not, it’s just your head playing tricks on you, unless you caught her redhanded before or if she actually did something real to make you doubt her loyalty.
4- Remember that you were more accepting of her style when you first met:
There’s nobody that can tell anyone ever what to wear, unless they’re actually very inappropriate or getting naked in a public place in front of children and whatnot. We’re pretty sure this is not your girlfriend’s case, so you have to stop feeling entitled to control her in any way at all and especially with regards to something so silly.
What she wears is ultimately up to her and nobody else and chances are the day you met her you knew very well what type of clothes she’s fond of and you and no problem pursuing a relationship with her back then.
So unless she completely changed her style without consulting you even once, then you have no place to say anything ever about her outfits. But if she indeed changed her style then she would’ve consulted you about it and that would’ve been your chance to share your opinion, in a kind and gentle fashion.
Would you like it if she was constantly telling you what to wear? No, of course not. So don’t do the same thing to her. It’s not fair and it’s not right. Let her make her own choices about what she wears, it’s nobody else’s business but hers.
5- Take her on a clothing shopping spree:
It’s important to remember that your girl is her own person, and she has the right to make her own choices about what she wears. If you’re feeling insecure about what she’s wearing, the best thing to do is to let her know in a nice way. And by nice way, we mean taking her on a shopping spree and showing her in a kind, polite manner the type of clothes you’d like to see on her.
In this case, you’ll also be paying for the new purchases as you cannot just request a specific type of clothing that you want her to wear and not wear whether she has it in ehr wardrobe or not. Be civil and polite, and try to be kind and gentle about it. Tell her that you want to get her a couple of dresses according to your taste, it doesn’t even have be more items than that, if you fear going out of budget.
It will make for a nice day out for the two of you, and she will have a better udnerstanding by the end of it about what you enjoy seeing on her. If she’s assertive and want to pick her own items to make you buy, make it clear that it’s your treat and that you really are dreaming and fantasizing about picking a specific style for her.
In the end, no need to create a fight over something silly, Respect her decision, even if she has her heart set on something that you would not have chosen for her. It’s not like this little shopping session would ever be a waste because why not spoil your girl after all she deserves it.
Plus, when picking the item remember that she’s the one who has to wear it, not you! So don’t force her to get something she’ll probably never put on. That’s what will be a real waste!
