Thong type panties and bathing suits for 'little' girls now...would you ever consider letting your DD wear them? (HER REQUEST?).

Be nice, and remember lots of people have different opinions!

LOL! I don't think I would ever allow my daughter's to go out in public with a thong type bathing suit. As far as the undies, I myself can't stand thong undies as I am so uncomfortable in them but I know some ladies just love them. I guess I would let them try the undies if they insist when they get older. I really doubt they would want them because when ever we see them in the panty section they just laugh about them.

No. Neither of my girls will be wearing thong panties or thong bathing suits. I'm just not comfortable letting my little girls 'hang out' like that. Even tho they are little now, reputations are built and wrecked with decisions like that and I'd like to be sure I gave my children the right sense of modesty so that when they are teens and have these choices to make on their own, they'll make the right ones.

Never a thong bathing suit. For little kids? That's sick. Just my opinon. LOL When she's 18 she can wear what she wants.

As for the panties, I can't see Kristen ever wanting them because she's always saying panties bug her, but maybe if she was a teen and able to buy her own underwear I wouldn't have a fit, but at age 8, no way. I just don't think its necessary and seems to be pushing them to grow up way too fast.

NO WAY!

My children are young, so I can say No. But I still feel that even as teens, I will surely be there to let them now what's right and wrong (wearing underwear like that is not appropriate for young adults). But of course, when they turn 18, they can decide.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO....

there is NO freaking way that my daughter will be wearing a thong as long as I still have control over what she wears. IMO I think that clothing that makes little girls look older than they are, are just WRONG. Why can't our little girls be little girls? They grow up soon enough, they'll be into the revealing clothing far too soon - why do we have to rob them of their innocence?

ALSO while I am a HUGE proponent of women not deserving "anything" when they dress in less than school-marmish ways, but I do feel that when women dress in a certain way, people DO think of them that way. For instance... if a girl/young woman begins to dress in older clothes, the rumour mill might decide that she's easy. And she may spend the rest of her school years trying to get rid of that reputation. I know I'm not saying this right.. but I am going to try to impress upon Catherine (and Gary) that while dressing to your personality is important, it is equally important to consider the IMAGE that your clothing and appearance give off.

So.. NO THONGS. LOL.

No to adult clothing on little girls. I agree with others that it's too much, too soon.

I was only allowed to wear lip gloss in 8th grade, so I guess I will more conservative than others, but i will try to stick to my guns on this one.

No! No! Never!

I personally do not understand how anyone (even adult women) can wear thong bathing suits or undies. They are just soooo uncomfortable to me. It's like having a permanent wedgie.

I do not find adult clothing on children attractive. I think kids should be kids.

I agree with you about the "image" thing. I am always telling my kids that they need to be careful about how they present themselves because to many people, if not most people, appearance matters a great deal.
