Re: No, thanks.

Drives me crazy! I have 3DD and it has gotten worse every year. We had a neighbor family that we were pretty friendly with but those girls close were putting me over the cliff!! Her second grader had hoochie shorts with stuff written on the bum, low cut shirts, and high heels.

Re: No, thanks.

Ugh - yuck!

I was a camp counselor one summer years go for a daycamp. One girl was about 9 years old and wore the skimpiest clothing I've ever seen on a kid. Her midrift was always showing. What's sad is that her mom (frumpy and overweight) seemed to be pushing it and living vicariously through her

I had major gender disappointment when I found out I was having a girl. She's 1 now and I'm having such a hard time finding clothes that aren't too girly. The skimpy/sexy ones with attitude make me want to barf. I don't know what I'll do when she's a little older and they start getting bad. Ugh.

My daughter is only 14 months, so I can't really relate, yet. But I was just at the mall today and shocked at what I saw lots of Tweens wearing.

My daughter wears mostly boys clothes, since that's what I had first. Looks like we will keep it up through high school.

I hear ya! Ds isnt even here yet and I can already tell its going to be easier to find him clothes then it ever has been for the girls. Luckily dd1(7) is already aware of what is and isnt appropriate attire and will actually hold something up and ask why it's in the kid section. Shoes are the worst for me. Can anyone tell me why a 1.5yr old needs heels? I remember crussing when dd2 started walking(18mos) and needed shoes for a fanicer event and store after store had shoes with freakin heels in her size.

It's even harder when your daughter has a long torso and shot legs.

I have to hunt to find shirts that don't show my daughters belly. Even those that are not intentionally short can be playing peek a boo with my 13 year olds belly.

Oh. My. Gosh.

I might just be calling the store's corporate office about that. How would a CEO at that store like his or her daughter wearing that to first grade?



I mean, I do hate that boy clothing is so drab. Like, "hey, do you want to wear brown or blue today?" I had to go to 3 malls to find a semi-dressy outfit for him when he was 6 months because no store anywhere had nice looking clothing for a baby boy. Not to mention that every time I go to the fabric store and think of the various gorgeous dresses I could whip-up in no time... yeah, it bums me out. But walking past Victoria Secret and seeing 12 year olds picking out thongs, I can't help but turn to hubby and say, "aren't you glad we have a boy?"

But it's so *empowering* for them!

I hate how baby boys' trousers have non-working flies on them. Flies. For babies who wear diapers. I love the implication that a 3 month old needs the convenience of whipping out his penis to wee.

Re: No, thanks.

I hate shopping for dd1. She's hit that size where it is harder and harder to find normal clothes for her. I finally sucked it up and spent $$$ to get high end clothes because I'd rather spend $$$ than her wear skanky stuff.

I will say this, it doesn't hold up even a season but our walmart always has a nice selection of normal looking girls clothes - terrible quality but dd has started biting holes in her shirts so until we solve the problem I'd rather toss a $5 shirt vs a $30 one.
