Ladies wearing mini skirts and riding bicycles.... Sexy or Unsightly???
June 30, 2009 11:31am CST
This afternoon, I watched High School Musical 3 with my daughters. Towards the end of the show, the lead actress Gabriella was riding a bicycle wearing a demin mini skirt. My daughter asked me why Gabriella can ride a bicycle wearing a mini skirt and why I always insisted that they have to wear pants when they ride bicycle? For me, I think it is out of decency that you wear proper attire when you are riding a bicycle due to the movement of the legs. Of cos, it is up to individual freedom of choice what they want to wear when they are cycling. And in the show, Gabriella was cycling so gracefully with mini skirt. So, what do you guys think???

Hey there! I actually think that this is an interesting question, it should be fun to know different opinions. I think it depends on how short the skirt really is... If you can wear the skirt and ride the bike without showing too much of your private parts, I don't think that there is anything wrong... I haven't watched High School Musical 3 myself, so I don't know what she was 'showing'. I have, however, seen somegirls ridng bikes in short skirts, and showing WAY too much for confort... Showing off or flashing private parts is taky, not sexy at all... Sexy is demure, the promise of something beautiful underneath your clothes, exposing yourself is just trashy... Plus, I wonder how confortable and pratical it is to ride a bike in a mini though...

Hihi catarina _rg =)) In HSM3, Gabriella wasn't showing too much, In fact, she looks quite pretty and graceful riding the bicycle in her mini skirt. I agree with you on wearing comfortble and practical attire when riding bicycles or motorbikes. My hubby rides a motorbike, so sometimes I will ride with him. For instance, if he come and fetch me home from work and I happened to be wearing a skirt on that day, he would insist that I tie his jacket around my waist in the front so that the jacket can cover most of my thights when I sit on his bike. But normally, we would drive our car instead of his bike.

I totally agree with guapyero on the point that guys will definitely like the sight of a lady wearing mini skirt riding a bicycle or bike. My hubby is one of them. He will first take a good look and make some comments about the rider's legs, then he would turn his head and said to me the rider is revealing too much..... hahaha .... very ironical.....

hi . you could've told your daughter the plain reason why gabriella was wearing a mini skirt in that scene: it looks good on screen in par with her character. we all know vanessa hudgens isn't that tall. coupled with the fact that her her is long for her physique and the fact that it is black that in itself would make her appear shorter so much so when she is riding a bike. something had to be done and that is to expose as much limbs as possible. in that scene it took exquisite execution of the camera's angles. this is one of those things that people think if they see it in movies then it has to be good. well, yes, theatrical wise with precision planning and astute reasoning. but, of course, you could tell your daughter plainly that it's the movies and in that movie nobody gets sexually harassed. so, sexy or unsightly? in the movies it is sexy. in that scene it was acceptable. in real life? don't bet on it. even if vanessa hudgens does that off camera the paparazzi and the critics would have a feast day.

Hello Ritchelle, I like your response. Very well said!!! Yes, indeed I explained to my daughters almost similar to your explanation. They have to make everything in the movie looks nice and pretty. In HSM 3, Gabriella riding the bicycle with her mini looks so pleasing to the eyes, not at all unsightly. But in actual fact, riding a bicycle wearing a mini skirt will show way too much for decency. I also don't agree on wearing hot pants riding a bicycle, cos to me, it also exposed as much as wearing a mini skirt.
