How old would your daughter need to be before you allowed her to wear thong underwear?

What is an appropriate age for girls to start wearing thong underwear?

I don't know if there is an exact age where this would fit. I personally think this type of undies are very uncomfortable, so I don't wear them. I don't have a need to. DD19 plays volleyball and they require the girls to wear spandex shorts, so I can see a need there. To be honest though, I don't think I'd wear anything if I had to wear spandex. Again - these are not comfortable at all. Just would need to wash them a lot.
So if there is no need for a girl to wear these, I think my answer would be when they can buy their own.

I don't think we will have an issue with DD10 either. When she asked about them or see's DD19's she wrinkles her nose and is like Icky!! :0) Makes me laugh!!

I never wore them and dd is 17 and does not have any, she thinks they look gross. I don't think there is a correct age for such things, but what ever works for a family is fine.

I also question if hygiene is an issue with the thong so close and rubbing against some parts that have a lot of bacteria to transmit.***

Actually, research has shown that women that wear thongs get more yeast and urinary tract infections.

I don't know if this issue will come up for me and dd. She has incredibly sensitive skin. Gets hives over about anything odd with her clothing. Plus, we have to use expensive, soft toilet paper, because the cheap stuff causes horroble

I agree about the hygiene issue. My DD19 plays volleyball and they wear spandex and even those cause more uit's. I would only wear mine for games since they have too.

I have personally found with spandex that I have to take it off as soon as I am done exercising....the same with a wet bathing suit.

i wear thongs, and they are way more comfortable then underwear. (for some it takes about a week to get used to the different feeling) there is no wedgies. no pulling at your underwear. it stays where it needs to. and to the hygiene comment.. it does not move to cause a hygiene problem. never had an issue. i think around the age they get their period and shave should be around the same age they can choose to wear underwear or thongs. plus they might not like then and go back to the basics anyways. if they are old enough to deal with a period, they should be old enough to pick out their own underwear.
