New research in Social Psychological and Personality Science provides evidence that women strategically dampen signals of sexual permissiveness and desirability to avoid provoking intersexual aggression.

In other words, the study suggests that women “dress defensively” by wearing less revealing outfits when encountering other women.

“So much social psychology has focused on men’s cognition and behavior, or has long assumed that male psychology is the default.

The participants tended choose more modest outfits when attending an all-female gathering compared to gatherings with both men and women.

In particular, women reported intentions to dress less provocatively when meeting a prospective male friend compared to an existing male friend.

Of course, when it comes to how women decide to dress, avoiding same-sex aggression is just one factor among many.

The study, “Women’s Strategic Defenses Against Same-Sex Aggression: Evidence From Sartorial Behavior“, was authored by Jaimie Arona Krems, Ashley M. Rankin, and Stefanie B. Northover. »
