See the dress in the video below:
TikTok user Keisha-Sian Cairns posted the video containing two pictures of the sheer black dress. The caption, which reads “ask your boyfriend if he likes this dress for a night out” was intended to prompt other women to share their own boyfriend’s reactions.
Keisha-Shan posted the text messages between her and her unnamed boyfriend after she sent the two pictures to him.
“Do you like this dress for the weekend x” she wrote.
Her boyfriend initially replied with six laughing emojis before writing “don’t be ever so silly,” suggesting he was not impressed with the garment.
Keisha-Shan asked for further explanation, to which he responded to her first question.
He replied: “No I do not".
He followed-up this message with: “If I’m with you then yes actually.”
After she said she intended to buy and wear the dress “to town”, her boyfriend was left in complete shock.
“Woah relax,” he replied, before asking if she “wanted or boyfriend or not” and emphasised that she could not wear the dress unless he is with her.
Some TikTok users took issue with the boyfriend’s response, with several comments calling the man “controlling”.
However other women defended his actions and said he was simply being a "protective" boyfriend.
One comment, which received over 12,000 likes, said: “Some might say controlling, I say it’s being protective over what’s yours.”
However one woman disagreed, writing: “This is controlling and he doesn’t own her if this was a real situation she has the right to wear the dress no matter what.”
Another response said: “No it’s not controlling. Men are creeps these days he’s looking out for her.”
One person wrote: “That’s not controlling that’s protecting his girl!”
A third TikTok user agreed: “It isn’t controlling, it’s basic respect, if he wasn’t bothered about her wearing it then that’d be a problem.”
On the other hand, some people took offence from the boyfriend’s tone in the text messages. One woman replied: “‘You want a boyfriend or not’ girl a man should NEVER threaten you with breaking up with you to get his own way”.
Similarly, another commenter shared: “'You want a boyfriend or what’ is where I’d of tapped out - no bro, not one that doesn’t trust me regardless of what I want to wear.”
