In the seventies, eighties and nineties, Nigerian ladies were very decent in their dressing. They dress and ensure that all parts of their bodies are well-covered but today, it is the opposite.
Ladies now dress as if they live in animal kingdom who don’t care whether somebody is looking at them or not. In fact, some walk on the street half- naked with just tiny clothes covering them.
What ordinarily should have been worn inside the house as underwears are what these ladies are wearing as outing clothes and they call it fashion.
The ladies have moved from spaghetti to transparent cloth that look like see-through night gown, bump shorts, short skirts, short tops, tops that expose their breasts and other parts.
However, the disturbing aspect is that the clothes which were worn by sex workers at night before now are now being worn in the day not minding about the kids around.
These ladies dress as if they don’t have parents or guardians. They don’t give regards to people around them while some of them are so senseless that they wear these terrible clothes in the name of fashion to places of worship.
Due to this madness, some places of worship have deployed their ushers at the entrance to give wrappers to such people to cover their nakedness while some are allowed hence constituting nuisance and distracting other worshippers from paying attention to the Word.
However, the worrisome aspect is that these are happening and only a few are condemning the act compare to the gravity of what the ladies are wearing that had led to rape and other vices.
The politicians who are supposed to be parents to these ladies or those who are supposed to make laws or execute it are the one that patronize these girls the most. What a pity!
Whenever a lady is not properly dressed, one would have expected that such person should have been advised but that is not the case as people prefer to approach such person believing that her dressing means come and take me.
With this trend of ladies including children wearing careless clothes as fashion, it shows the kind of background they are coming from and the kinds of parents that groomed them.
Some schools of thought however believe that our generations need to be given serious attention because what is being experienced today is not fashion but mere madness. According to a parent who prefers to be called Madam Janet, some of the ladies nowadays seem to have missed it in life.
“This is not about being holy but moral. How can these girls be wearing whatever they see including night gowns, mini skirts or short tops that reveals the laps and the pants they are wearing and you call that fashion?
“In those days, you can’t even see the underwear of anybody let alone the lap. The bras are never visible but today, ladies will expose their laps and even their pants while some wear only bra on the street. What is really wrong with us and where have we gotten it wrong. What type of parents do we have nowadays?”
Mr. John Oghenekaro said, “Girls of nowadays have gone weird. Some of them don’t wear bra anymore while some don’t even see anything wrong in not wearing pants, so that their buttocks can shake when they are moving. This is absurd. In those, it was an abomination not to wear bra let alone pant. The annoying aspect is that parents who are supposed to correct all these anomalies are also culprits. They don’t see anything wrong in what their children are wearing.”
Investigation has shown that these ladies want to emulate their foreign counterparts while some are doing so to seduce and attract their male counterparts but they forgot that no responsible man will keep such woman at home as a wife except as a girlfriend.
So ladies do all sorts of things while they are young, while some are lucky, some are not as they get into trouble. The moment they are getting old and close to menopause, they quickly attach themselves to a worship place and position themselves for marriage after wasting their better parts of their lives in wayward life.
The question is, why live such life and not a decent one. Dressing responsibly will always attract a reasonable and responsible men but dressing carelessly will make people conclude that such person is wayward and will only be good for part-time babe. Which one will you prefer? A responsible person and wife material or a club girl and become useless for life?
Well, some people believe that some of the ladies are doing some of those things out of ignorance and if something urgent is not done to address it, it might be too late and dangerous for the next generations because they are watching and might just go hell-wire during their time.
