This study was aimed at examining clothing interest as a mediating factor in self-perceptions of sociability, emotional stability, and dominance when either satisfaction or dissatisfaction with clothing was specified. A questionnaire was designed to measure 5 dimensions of clothing interest as well as each of the 3 traits both with, and without, a clothing satisfaction variable, or reference to whether the participant felt satisfied or dissatisfied with her dress. Analysis revealed that specific dimensions of clothing interest suggesting a risk-avoiding orientation toward dress were most likely to mediate self-perceptions of sociability, emotional stability, and dominance when one was either satisfied or dissatisfied with one’s clothing.
