What do Kenyan men like to see women wearing?

According to findings of a new survey released on Wednesday, the majority of men prefer that women wear dresses and skirts.

The Ipsos Synovate study indicates 59 in every 100 men would like to see women wear dresses or skirts as opposed to trousers.

Only 16 per cent of the men prefer to have women wear trousers.

But a quarter of all the men sampled in the study said they did not care what women wore — trouser or skirt.

The preference for trousers is common among men of all age groups.

The study shows 49 per cent of Kenyan men believe women in dresses are more presentable and decent. Others felt such women portrayed respect while some said dresses brought out the better shape for women.

“They (dresses) make them look decent, ” said the majority of the men.

Men who said they like women in trousers argued the garments not only made the women look presentable, but also made them look confident and classy.

However, men who are above 41 years were more undecided.

“A skirt, a dress, a trouser. Either of them is fine for me, ” the survey says.

On hairstyles, the majority of men, 40 per cent, said they preferred long hair.

Weaves and dreadlocks are not popular with most Kenyan men, according to the survey conducted last month. Dreadlocks are the least preferred, attracting a vote of only six in every 100 men.

“Women purchase more shirts and trousers, than dresses and even skirts, ” the survey shows. “Skirts are the least purchased.”

At the same time, the survey indicates that men spend as much on shopping as women do.

The pollsters found out that women spend an average of $6 (Sh500) on a shirt while men spend $11 (Sh900).

The maximum the women spent on a shirt was $24 (Sh2, 000) while men spent as much as (118 (Sh10, 000).

A majority of the people surveyed said the average they spent on clothes was between $12 (Sh1, 000) and $59 (Sh5, 000).

Only two per cent of the respondents said they had spent more than Sh10, 000.

A majority of those surveyed said they purchase their clothes in stalls (exhibitions) and in second-hand markets. Only a small number said they purchased clothes in boutiques and from abroad.

The survey found out that clothes designed locally are unpopular.

Some of the reasons given for this included, “I don’t like their designs; the designs are common, and not attractive.”

The study shows that urban men shop for clothes as often as women do. And they spend much more, too.

Ipsos Synovate conducted the fashion and lifestyle poll in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu.

The pollster partnered with Kiko Romeo and Fafa (Festival of African Fashion and Arts) in collecting the data.

Ms Anne McCreath, the managing director of Kiko Romeo, welcomed the survey’s findings.

“I am very excited that this data has been collected and hope that it is just the start of many more relevant surveys in the future, ” Ms McCreath said.

She added: “A few surveys have shown some numbers on mitumba clothes versus new ones but there is no reliable information on designer fashion, exhibitions, tailors and comparative data.

“We need to understand how the market thinks and shops, so that designers and local clothing brands can better understand where to put their efforts for maximum returns.”

Cute clothing for plus-sized women?

I am a female, in my mid-twenties. I like trendy clothes, but it is hard finding these in my size range (14-16), especially since I am not your "typical" plus sized woman. I have a large chest, slightly thick middle, narrow hips and thick thighs. I shop mostly at Torrid and Old Navy, but I am tired of having to have my clothes, especially my pants and skirts, altered or tailored to fit, as it gets rather expensive. Also, I find shirts that fit my midsection, but are often too snug in the chest area. Do the designers not think that a 1x-2x woman would have a chest larger than a 36-C? Any tips would be helpful

What?!?! a turtleneck?!

That is really the LEAST flattering thing to wear. It will make your boobs look even larger - like they start at your chin!
You should wear as many open-neck or V-neck tops as possible. The more open your decolatage, the more flattering. Wearing darker colors on top will also help minimize.
Also going for a proper bra fitting is crucial. Honestly, most women are walking around wearing insufficient or ill-fitting bras.
Balance out your shape with A-line skirts or wide-leg pants. Anything that clings to the lower body (like a pencil skirt or skinny jeans) should be avoided

Torrid has what you're looking for...

In the sense that they tend towards 'lookit my boobs, ignore my belly' sort of approach to dressing larger women - problem is, they also seem to be cut for girls who haven't got what to lookit, since NONE of their tops accomodated my D cups either of the times I went shopping there.
skirts are good choices, if they have very simple waists - natural, waistless, sashes and the new 'scrunched' waists sometime work, too. length can vary, gored, trumpet and circle cuts all work, and the 'lighter' the fabric, the longer the skirt should be - Lane Bryant and Catherine tend to come o
