Woman wearing short or tight clothing at home

Q: Sometimes I wear slightly short or tight clothing at home, e.g.: 3/4 pants or a t-shirt who's length isn't completely over my buttocks. However my aw0ah is always covered. I don't even wear sleeveless. However, my father says that this is wrong and disrespectful because we live with my brother and grandfather. He always makes me change. Please advise if this is wrong or disrespectful and if I'm allowed to dress like this in my own home. Outside I wear hijab

A: A female is required to wear such clothing that does not imitate the clothing of men, whether in the privacy of her home or outside her home. Secondly, in the times of fitnah it is important that the clothing should be loose and flowing, not body hugging and short.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
