Our dreams are a reflection of how we feel about ourselves. Dreams about wearing clothes can symbolize our need to feel safe and protected from outside influences.
Clothes in dreams are a symbol of protection and safety, but they can also be a symbol of hiding. In most cases, if you dream about your clothes falling off or ripping, it means that you’re feeling vulnerable or unprotected. This can be because of an upcoming fight, argument or confrontation with someone.
When we wear clothing, it’s like putting on a mask — it hides our true self from others. We don’t want people to see what’s underneath those clothes because we’re afraid that they might not like what they see.
We’re afraid that people will judge us for not looking good enough or for being too fat or too thin or too short or too tall or too old or too young…the list goes on and on.
If your dream was about having some kind of problem with your clothes — like your zipper breaking or buttons popping off — it could show that there’s something wrong with the way you look at yourself as well as how other people see you.
