@tootsietails: isn’t that weird how that works? I inherited some major tatas from my momma, and it’s always when I cover up the boys do I get comments. Lol. I do think it depends on the outfit I’m wearing.  If I know I look fine I am all ‘ bitch I am fabulous! Don’t be hating!”.  🙂

Im sorry, but I hear the way my boyfriend’s semi-chauvonistic guy friends talk and to call someone a “stripper” is NOT a good thing by any means of the word. I would not take it as a compliment at all…I have heard the same guys talk about girls who are “hot” and it is not in the same context. Sorry, Just being honest.

I would take it as an insult. It’s not right for him to call you a stripper. Not even if he was joking. He doesn’t know you that well and to call you a stripper is pretty awful. This person shouldn’t have judged you by what you were wearing. That’s just wrong and mean.

I would probably be insulted. Your Fiance handled it well, though.

Insult.  If anyone called me a stripper, I’d be embarassed.  But to do it on a public forum like facebook, where lots of people may not even know you…I’d be mortified and really offended.

Was it a friend of FI’s, or of yours? You said you posted it on FB so I don’t know if you mean on your wall or on his.

I’d kind of assume the guy was just being a jerk and trying to be funny, but if it’s a friend of FI’s, wouldn’t they know you were his fiancee? If you aren’t offended, I wouldn’t worry about it, but it does suggest maybe *some* people see something different than you do when you look in the mirror.

I would be insulted, but I’m so glad you’re not! And your FI’s response was perfect!

I would be emabarrassed and insulted. When I think of a stripper I do not think of someone who looks classy, I actually think the opposite.

Got to agree with @KatyElle: on this one. If someone is calling you a stripper, it might be time to take an honest assesment of what you are wearing to events like weddings. If this was a club or a more casual party, then that would be one thing. But for it to be a wedding and be called that… yikes. 

Then again, I cant really make a judgement till I see a picture of the dress on you.

I would be completely insulted and pretty embarrased, because it was afterall, a wedding! I’d personally reassess my outfit, not because of one comment, but all the comments put together – but that’s just me. I’m also pretty busty and curvy (especially in my younger/thinner days) and sometimes a “cute” innocent outfit can look outright vulgar when you’re curvy.

But the guy was a complete jackass for making that comment!

It was rude and I’m sure that guy is really embarassed. But it was also honest and candid, which is pretty rare feedback to ever receive. If you don’t mean to look that way or dress sexy enough to get comments like that, if I were you I would definitely start dressing a little more conservative. But if you want to look sexy and don’t care about what others think – then rock on! Although, I get the impression that you do care since you posted this thread.
