When a woman feels she must wear provocative clothing in order to attract attention from men , what does this mean?

Does it mean she has high self-esteem, or low self-esteem? Or could it mean that she is insecure?

Or could it just be a hot summer day and she wants to keep cool?

Or does she feel good about her body and wish others to see?

If she wears provocative clothing, simply to seek attention from men, for what reasons is she doing this?

    Actually, all of what you mentioned could be correct. Depends on what's going through her mind.

    When it comes to practicing Christianity, the principles that we glean from God’s Word should move us to avoid wearing clothing that is tight-fitting, revealing, or sexually provocative. One important principle is found at 1 Corinthians 10:31 "Therefore, whether you are eating or drinking or doing anything else, do all things for God’s glory."

    In my mom's case, 

    There are two reasons.

    1.) It is comfortable

    2.) Her boyfriend (my future step dad, they are getting engaged soon) really likes it.

    Often they wear it to get attention from other women, it is seen as a competition by some women.

    It means two things, she has no self confidence to just go out wearing things of her own choosing and she thinks that she must dress to impress others, either her parents, her tutors, co-workers etc. or MEN. When it's the latter she will copy what other girls wear and that usually means, these days, provocative, sexy, revealing etc. none of which might be her own choice but others make her feel that's how it should be.

    The worst thing a young woman can do is to copy others.  If a man is attracted to a woman because of how much flesh she shows, how much makeup she has applied, how wonderful her hair looks etc. then he isn't looking for a wife, he's looking for someone to have sex with.

    Girls should not sell themselves short like this, they should have respect for themselves then, in time, they'll meet men who know how to respect a real and decent woman.  That is the type of man all women deserve but very few actually find these days.  Respect yourself then others are more likely to respect you.

    She feels good about her body and loves showing it off to get attention from men and envy from women. She wants to be the center of attention.

    The vast majority of women do not choose their clothing to attract the attention of men. Even women who dress provocatively, don't believe they are doing it to attract the attention of men. If you assume they want you to hit on them, you are wrong. 

    Society often determines a women's value based on how good she looks. Attractive women are treated better, have a better social life, and receive more opportunities. When a women feels she is attractive it increases her self esteem and gives her greater confidence. Too often a woman will dress provocatively in the belief that it improves her appearances and social worth.
