If a girl recently adjusted herself in front of you then you might be wondering why and what it might mean about the way that she feels about you.

This post will help you understand why she adjusted herself in front of you and why other girls might do it as well in the future.

So, what does it mean when a girl adjusts herself in front of you? It can be a sign of attraction however it is not a strong one by itself. It would be more likely that she adjusted herself due to being uncomfortable.

The reason that she adjusted herself in front of you will depend greatly on the way that she did it and the body language that she was showing around you.

Why a girl will adjust herself in front of you

Each of the different reasons why a girl will adjust herself in front of you will likely come with a number of clues in the way that she does it and in the body language that she shows.

Below, I will mention a number of reasons why a girl will adjust herself in front of you, the signs to look for and the things to consider.

She was uncomfortable

By itself, the most likely reason that she adjusted herself in front of you was that she was uncomfortable.

This would be more likely if she did it in a way that made her appearance look less revealing, if she did it while showing neutral body language towards you and if she did it while you were around other people.

She was attracted to you

The reason that she adjusted her appearance could have been that she was attracted to you and she wanted to make herself look better in front of you.

This would be more likely if she adjusted her clothing in a way that made her appearance more revealing, she made herself look more appealing by applying makeup or adjusting her hair and if she did it while alone with you.

If she did adjust herself because she was attracted to you then it would be likely that she would have shown other signs of attraction as well by doing things such as:

  • Holding prolonged eye contact with you
  • Having dilated pupils when looking at you
  • Touching you a lot
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Standing closer to you than she does with other people
  • Asking you the most questions and paying the most attention to you
  • Laughing and looking to see if you are also laughing
  • Brushing her hair to the side when around you
  • Stroking her hair when she sees you
  • Giggling a lot at the things that you say
  • Glancing at you a lot and smiling or quickly looking away when you notice
  • Tilting her head when talking to you
  • Talking to you with a higher-pitched voice than she does with other people

She feels comfortable around you

Adjusting herself in front of you could be a sign that she considers you a friend and that she feels comfortable around you.

This would be more likely if she does similar things when she is with her other friends and if she shows the same body language around them as she does when she is with you.

Consider the way that she reacts to seeing you

When trying to understand why she adjusted herself in front of you it would be helpful to consider the way that she reacts to seeing you.

If she reacts to seeing you by noticeably changing her body language in a positive way then it would be more likely that she was showing attraction when she adjusted her appearance.

This means that if she reacts to seeing you by doing things such as:

  • Brushing her hair to the side
  • Sitting or standing more upright and uncrossing her arms
  • Positioning herself to be nearer to you
  • Holding eye contact with you
  • Pointing her feet at you
  • Giggling with her friends when she sees you

Then it would suggest that she is attracted to you and that she adjusted her appearance for that reason.

Think about how she interacts with other people

Comparing the way that she interacts with you with how she interacts with other people would also likely help you understand why she adjusted herself in front of you.

If she interacts with other people in a similar way to how she interacts with you and she adjusts herself in a similar way with them then it would be more likely that she did it because she felt uncomfortable.

Whereas, if she only does it around you and she shows more positive body language around you then it would make it more likely that she adjusted her appearance because she was showing attraction to you.

Consider the way that she adjusted her appearance

Thinking about the way that she adjusted her appearance would also likely help you in understanding why she did it.

If she adjusted her appearance in a way that made her look less revealing then it would make it more likely that she did it because she was uncomfortable.

Whereas, if she did it to make herself look more attractive then it would make it more likely that she was showing attraction to you.

Look for multiple clues in her body language

When trying to understand what her body language around you could have been suggesting it would be best to look for a number of clues in her body language.

This is because she might have been showing a single body language sign for many different reasons. Whereas, it would be more likely that she would show multiple body language signs suggesting the same thing for that specific reason.

What does it mean when a girl adjusts her clothes in front of you? By itself, it wouldn’t mean much other than she was uncomfortable. It could be a sign that she is attracted to you if she adjusts them in a way that makes her look more attractive and if she shows other signs of attraction around you.

If you want to learn more about body language, a book I would recommend would be The Definitive Book of Body Language (on Amazon). It shows you how to interpret body language and understand people's true intentions.
