is a part of culture. Whilst in some Middle Eastern and Arabic countries
ladies are not allowed to show more than 5% of their skin, Russian and
Ukrainian women may dress rather provocatively and challenging to a foreign
If you are a Ukrainian woman you have to
chase a certain dress code for any occasion. Wearing stained or rumpled
clothes is unacceptable for Ukrainian and Russian women. On the other
hand, they go far beyond that. They say that Russian and Ukrainian woman
in the US, Canada, Australia and Europe are always recognizable: make-up,
high heels and sexy, almost provocative outfits. It may seem that these
women have the following attitude on this subject: If you have a slim and
gorgeous body, why hide it? But, of course there are many causes for these
fashion inclinations in Ukraine and Russia:
- Some psychologists think that the main
reason is that a extensive choice of clothes is still a novelty in Ukraine.
In Soviet times Ukrainian women could not wear anything exceptional.
Definitely it was not the matter of money, but the matter of shortage. Shops
were stuffed with the same shoes and clothes. Women that wanted to buy
something special from what their friends wore would have to go to a foreign
country, which was out of the question then. Consequently after the Soviet
Union ended, clothes and other goods flooded Ukraine and Russia causing some
kind of cultural shock. Currently Ukrainian and Russian women are not only
after provocative outfits, but after dressing in an eye-catching, attractive
and bright style.
- In general shoes and clothes come to
Ukraine and Russia mostly from Turkey, which is the country where Ukrainian
and Russian women can easily travel to (they don’t need an entry visa) and
where they in fact spend most of their vacations. Traders go to Turkey and
buy lots of cheap shoes and clothes of very good quality.
- While in Western countries women are
feministic, Ukrainian and Russian women are more traditional. They don’t
believe that a man can fall in love with a woman's personality or her brain.
At least they know that first a woman needs to be noticed by a man. While
women in the west do not do much to attract men physically (except gold
digger women), Ukrainian and Russian women believe that a woman should look
like a WOMAN, so it involves mini skirt, high-heeled shoes, cosmetics and slightly (or
highly) provocative clothing.
Quotes from the web:
Russian women are awesome! All the
ones I know are very good looking, their accent is sexy as hell, Its really
cute when they don't know exactly how to say something the right way in
English. If I ever break down and decide to sell my soul and get married it
would most definitely be with a Russian woman!
