Street dress code for women

Hi,

What is the dress code for women when out and about on the streets in Alkinkum and Didim(especialy)?
Is it acceptable to wear shorts and strappy tops when going about the daily stuff-shops, dolmus, etc..
I know it is acceptable in Bodrum/Gumbet and Kisadasi.
I usually dress like this on holidays, but somehow I have a feeling the people of Didim town centre and its outskirts might be offended.
Am I right? I really, really dont want to cause offence.

Thanks,
Mary.

Agree with you May, I love to dress up, when I go out, and I do.

Re: Street dress code for women

You wont get pulled up for dressing in shorts etc but just be sensible and respect their customs.

Walking about town and in supermarkets in bikini top is not nice, shorts and t-shirt type top is ok.

Last time we were in Altinkum there was a young girl came out of the hotel where we were staying wearing a very skimpy pink bikini, although I did apreciate it, I did think it was inapropriate.

Re: Street dress code for women

I think it's a matter of common sense. Don't wear anything you wouldn't in your home town. Turks do have some customs but they have grown accustomed to people on vacation relaxing and enjoying themselves. They tolerate it also because it often means their bread and butter. We also tolerate their customs in our countries. If it's not against the law then relax and enjoy, very few will likely notice if any.

Re: Street dress code for women

Many kusadasi hotels now have signs which advise holiday makers to be 'fully clothed' when walking around in the hotel lobby or restaurant.
You'd be suprised how many women I've seen exiting one of these hotels to go walk around town in a bikini covered only with a see through sarong!

I've also seen a girl riding on the back of a moped in just a bikini...imagine if she fell off?! crazy.

Re: Street dress code for women

I always try to wear a cotton top and knee length or 3/4 shorts in the height of summer when going to the bank, council office or shopping. You can wear more skimpy stuff when at the beach and you will see some Turkish women going swimming fully clothed!

Re: Street dress code for women

I hate to see anyone walking around shops, supermarkets, restaurants etc in beach clothes. Keep them to the beach I say. Locals don't say anything really but a look says more than a thousand words.
