By the Song dynasty, I think most 'respectable' women would have covered themselves up alot more. The only 'sexy' thing on women that men were normally allowed to see was their small feet (in shoes, of course) - a very strange development in standards of beauty that still puzzles us now.
BTW, the last picture is from a TV series on Wu Zetian.

We invented the tube top. Take THAT, western civilization!

I would say Tang clothings are more 'sexy' for girls..

One should seek serenity to cultivate the body, thriftiness to cultivate the morals. If you are not simple and frugal, your ambition will not sparkle. If you are not calm and cool, you will not reach far. - Zhugeliang

I know chinese men liked small feet but to call small feet "sexy" .
Actually I think the whole point of small female feet was to get the "dainty" look and walk. That's pretty much what the western and modern highheels do too, just that the Song dynasty went too far in actually physically altering women's feet. :-)
