See-Through Skirts and Panties
If you had a booger on your face or food in your teeth, would you want someone to tell you, especially if you were in a public setting? I know I would want to know. There are few things worse than the post-embarrassment of realizing that you've spent all day conversing with people while you had a piece of lettuce stuck in your teeth. With that said, I was confronted with a dilemma the other day while I was at work, and it's been troubling me ever since.
While I was at work (I work at a grocery store) a rather attractive girl wearing a pale yellow skirt walked into my department. Let me clear the air for the ladies here, if you're attractive, you will be checked out by nearly every straight man who sees you, and you will be judged and measured by every other girl. So yes, I checked her out. I'm not a pervert, I'm just man, get over it. Anyway, I quickly noticed that her skirt was somewhat see-through and I was able to deduce in less than a second that she was wearing dark blue booty panties with white stripes. My first thought was that this girl just got way hotter, my second thought was whether I should tell her or not. I don't mean to tell her in a way that was creepy or anything, but to just inform her that it was possible for everyone to see through her clothing.
Does she know? Would she even care? If she didn't know, I would end up making her feel extremely self-conscious in a very public setting. If she didn't care that her panties were visible through her skirt, then there would be no reason for me to tell her. What if I did tell her and she accused me of being a pervert and made a complaint to my manager?
These were the questions that plagued me for the rest of the day, and I wish I had answers to them which is why I'm writing it here and hoping someone will have an answer for me. I asked a buddy of mine what I should have done and if it would have been out of line for me to tell her, and he told me that it was good I didn't say anything and that I would have just come off as a pervert. He was probably right, but I would still like a woman's perspective on this. Again, I wouldn't have told her because I'm a pervert, but rather because I saw the situation to be similar to someone having a booger on their face.
The above picture is an example of what I am talking about. Clearly this woman's undergarments are visible through her clothing. There seems to be less of a stigma on bras being visible, but the panties in the photo above are pretty obvious. She seems a little older and so probably doesn't give two squirts of piss about whether her underwear is visible or not, but try to imagine a younger woman, early to mid twenties in this picture. Would it be out of line to let her know about the "booger on her face"? Or just let it go?
I'm not some panties-should-not-be-visible-in-public activist or anything, it's simply a situation that seems to have many questions that I don't think I can answer on my own and would like some feedback.
