Is it free to wear anything in Sri Lanka for girls? Or there are some prohibitions?

I also think its the attitude you carry. If you're matter of fact about it and command respect, you receive it. We were caught off guard and had to visit the police station to report an accident (not that we habitually frequent govt offices under dressed!). I would also like to add, even if you are in a burqa, if men who comment wil comment and make lewd remarks. But we have never been pointed or laughed at.
