S/O If you do leggings, what age?

I know there was a thread on whether girls should wear leggings/shorts under dresses, and I was wondering: from what age do you think they're required? As soon as they PL? Earlier, over diapers? Preschool? Kindergarten?

Re: S/O If you do leggings, what age?

my DD who refuses to wear pants wears leggings if the weather is too chilly for bare legs. She mostly has skirts with built-in shorts underneath that she wears. And we teach her to "hide" her panties

ETA sorry looked back and realized that with my rewrites to make sure I made sense I didn't answer your question at all
I think little girls with poor "modesty control" should wear something underneath as soon as they're wearing panties.

We do shorts or leggings under all skirts and dresses as soon as kiddo is in underwear. They were required at our preschool.

Mine both started as soon as they were mobile. Neither of them really wears anything other than a dress with leggings. They protect knees when crawling and they protect the diaper when going down a slide or playing in the dirt. Older DD hates pants so she always wears dresses but I don't like panties showing ao she wears Capri leggings every day.

We started as soon as the dresses started showing the diaper too much. Hard to say when exactly, but she's not yet 2 and I already think its weird for her diaper to show.

So she wears shorts or leggings under most dresses.

But it's not a huge deal. Yesterday we were at a friends house and she sat in the slipnslide, so when I changed her, I left her shorts off.

I bought a few Walmart leggings and cut them and hemmed as shorts. Too hot to wear full length in the summer, I think.

We always do something under dresses and skirts whether she is wearing diapers or undies. (only 1 dd out of 5 almost 6 kids, but it would be the same if we had another girl too.) Most dresses/skirts for kids young enough to be in diapers come with some type of bloomer over diapers. That's fine till they are at least 2, but since she outgrew those, she wears leggings/shorts under her skirts or dresses. (She is 4 now.) Sometimes she wears skorts, but it's hard to find them that fit her in the waist. (She does better in dresses.) She wears almost all dresses by her choice. So, lots of leggings around here.

Once dresses stop coming with bloomers. I think at 2 most dresses still had matching bloomers but at 3 it is very rare that a dress comes with bloomers. I always had matching bloomers over a diaper and as soon as she PL'd (2y4m) we started with shorts underneath. Too hot here for leggings a lot of the time so I found some little cotton shorts at goodwill.

I do it mostly because I like the look. I sometimes wear jeans under dresses I think it looks cute, I don't care what current fashion trends happen to be. I only make my DD do it if her shirt/dress is too short or if she's going to be climbing or playing on the ground.

DD has always worn something under her dresses or skirts. Bloomers as an infant and toddler , then shorts ,leggings or capri leggings as a preschooler -til now. We still remind her to sit like a lady while wearing a dress/skirt even though she is wearing something underneath.
