History has shown that revealing some parts of a woman’s body gives a different impression.

Most artists are opportune to see the beauty of female nude pictures of various shapes and sizes. You might get a shocking answer if you ask a lady how she feels about this. Nudity reveals everything we try to hide.

Weaknesses that we experience during our school days due to the scars and stretch marks on our bodies can also be revealed. Women’s Health conducted a reader survey in 2013 to chart our complex relationship with our stripped-down selves.

Though it’s just four years later, a lifetime of change has occurred on the body front. The body-positivity movement exploded, strong replaced skinny as social media’s favourite adjective, and #loveyourcurves campaigns abound, making us wonder: Is there more affection? More peace?

Most women like the idea of exposing their bodies; it makes them feel sexy. Most women would say seeing their bodies boosts their self-confidence. They often have different reasons for revealing their bodies.

Reasons women flaunt their body

1. Boost their self-confidence

Women who reveal their bodies get their confidence from revealing some parts of their bodies.

They believe their body is an asset to get what they want. Some go to the extent of revealing sensitive parts.

2. To get attention

Research has shown that one reason ladies expose their skin is to attract people’s attention. You tend to get people’s attention once you step into any place, and such revealing outfits cause people to focus on you.

3. For competition

Women are known to be competitive. So, when it comes to competition for ladies, revealing their skin is part of it. They want to feel good about having the best figure or shape.

4. The woman’s body is a work of art, so flaunt it

Artists describe the woman’s body as a work of art that should be displayed. They use their bodies for their work of art to display their creativity, as a work of art that should be flaunted.

5. To show off

Girls love to show off; the best way some ladies think they can do this is to show off their skin. The girls of this generation love to flaunt their skin; they tend to get guys’ attention, or others applaud them and even boost their Instagram posts.

6. For teasing purpose

Some would say they open their bodies to tease those around them. It’s not just to get attention or admiration alone.

7. They are not up for casual sex.


They flaunt their body to tell guys they are not in for casual sex. They want something real and better.

8. To show her handwork for taking care of her skin by putting so much effort into looking good. Spending their time and money means alot so they want others to see their handwork.

9. They are proud to be a woman

To some women, their bodies give them self-prestige, so flaunting it makes them feel good as a woman. It doesn’t mean they are promiscuous.

“Everybody is a bikini body.” It’s a significant mantra now—but just two years ago, insulting phrases like “bikini worthy” dominated the social and media landscapes. Today, two-piece moments celebrating women of all types roll out as often as software security updates—and yay for that! Yet. The percentage of American women who won’t be caught dead in a bikini increased since 2013. And that was true in almost every country we surveyed. What is going on?

As with the general body-positivity movement, seeing more body diversity in bikinis “is just a drop in the bucket compared to the decades of the notion that only a specific body type can wear a bikini,” says Elizabeth Daniels, Ph.D., an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs. And while a mantra is one thing, it doesn’t always translate to real-life moments. “Everyone says they’re supportive of body positivity, but inside, they could be thinking, That girl shouldn’t be wearing a bikini,” says Olivia, 23, a PR coordinator in NYC who wears size 12.

The better news: Women’s two-piece attitudes don’t signal an epidemic of overall body hatred. “You can have great body image without feeling good in a bikini,” says body-image expert Kjerstin Gruys, PhD, an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Nevada in Reno. “Healthy body image is more about viewing your appearance as only one small part of your overall sense of self.” And among the women we surveyed, there was an overwhelmingly happy response to a less body-centric question. When asked, “Do you think you’re beautiful?” more than two-thirds said yes. Jennifer, 46, an entrepreneur in Allentown, Pennsylvania, who wears size 6, explains: “After having my kids and surviving cervical cancer, my standards have changed. I don’t want to wear a bikini. Looking in the mirror, I focus on my beautiful hair, toned muscles, and happy smile.”

Across the board, worldwide, if there’s one body part women struggle to love, it’s their stomach.

We see this often on social media, where ladies take selfies with bikinis and bras; they show off their butts and other parts of their bodies. Their caption doesn’t say anything else apart from how they feel about their bodies.

This generation doesn’t care about what they wear, especially those in relationships. They might have different motives for showing off their skin. Until you meet them in person, you can’t tell why they do it and what they stand to gain.
