Women-what to to dress? (Jakarta)


I have read conflicting information about what to wear or NOT to wear in Jakarta. On some websites it says women dress similar, but a bit more modest than westerners. Then, I hear that you should not wear sleeveless dresses or shirts. But, sometimes I see photos online that are different to advice.

Any advice you would give someone new to Jakarta. I will be teaching for work and exploring in my off time. Please let me know your thoughts. Or, if they are any attitudes that clothes may send that are different from people in the west.

Dresses without sleeves?
Length of dress
Tightness of clothes

Thank you!
