Why do so many women use Halloween as an excuse to dress so skimpy?

Like, seriously, I know so many women who dress conservatively all year, then comes Halloween and they're dressed like they're about to perform a striptease. Has anyone else noticed this? Why do all of the womens costumes have to be sexy? I'm not gonna lie, when I was younger I dressed in a few sexy costumes, but I was never as nearly naked as some women I see.

  • I noticed a lt of people I know do this. It is highly inappropriate, especially since it gets very cold here around halloween time, and they complain about being cold.
    I like to dress warm on halloween, and make my costume scary, (though this year I may have to make an exception since my 5 month old probably won't like it)

  • I notice it too and it bothers me.

  • It bothers me mostly because of the message it sends to my daughter. Even the little girl costumes are skanky.

  • Because I can! I don't wear my costume around my child BUT I work in a bar and I get better tips. Plus its the one night a year I can show off as much as I please and its ok. I have fun I feel sexy and I have a good time.

  • because its fun and every woman likes to feel sexy...frankly, while i have seen a few women who look absolutely trashy, i think that most of the time when women complain about other women dressing too sexy its only because they cant pull off the outfit themselves. im not referring to you personally, just my thoughts in general. i've made fun of women who are dreessed ridiculously and trying to hard for attention and i'm sure people have talked about me at times too...but i intend to wear a very tight super short pinstriped dress that shows alot of clevage with a black tie tied around my bare neck and black stilletos and a pinstriped "pimp" hat as my "gangster girl" costume. i think its absolutely adorable and when i put it on and asked my SO if he liked it, he smiled and said "yeah." i know its sexy and thats the point. its the one day that grown women get to play dress up and i plan to take full advantage!

  • I understand you can, and that's fine. I just don't know how some women feel okay walking around in lingerie just because it's Halloween.
