Well Hello my Darling Friend... so glad you’re here as I need to relieve some tension and chatting with you will make me feel oh so much better. I’ve been going bonkers lately, each and every time I step into the young girls section of the store I’m in... and I need to vent and scream and kick up my heels... but first... let me fill your cup...
Okay, now... so the last time we spoke about fashion my Dear, we chatted about shorts for girls and how short is too short for a young girl? I know, I know, it’s the parents’ responsibility to purchase or to not purchase and the freedom of blah, blah, blah... hmmph, makes my lipstick smudge!
So I got a bit out of hand with my thoughts about short shorts on very little girls... I bought a new lipstick, got over it and felt much better... and then, a few days later I went to the girls’ undie section in Target. I never really paid attention to this section except when I needed a 6 pack of panties or a package of socks...
I was looking for camis or tanks for Littlest to wear for sleeping, you know, it’s summer time and I thought something cool and comfortable to wear for bed would be a good thing for this time of the year. When I got to the girls underwear section... I... about... fainted!
OH MY GAWD!! Are you fricken kidding me??? Breathe Caffe, breathe...
I completely understand the adjustments in uhhh... well... you know! A young girl’s body goes through many transformations and one of the changes is a new piece of underwear that fits around the chest area... A bra. In the very beginning, a camisole or a half tank, an undershirt... these are sufficient coverage for the very young and it also opens dialogue with your daughter about what to expect in the near future.
See the picture up above? Uh huh, looks like the women's bra section in the store doesn’t it? Take a closer look... It’s the girls’ section!!
There were padded, molded, sculpted, wired, wireless and demi bras... for a 9 year old?? How much sculpting can you do with a young girl’s chest? Nope! I don’t even want to think about it as thinking about it will make the powder on my nose crust up! What next? Garter belts and crotchless panties??
Who thinks this is a good idea? *Ahem...Hanes* And why are they making undergarments that suggest sexuality at such a young age? Because a push-up demi is not exactly something a young girl would wear to the neighborhood park... is it? Unless they are wearing their low cut T-shirt trying to attract all the boys playing trucks in the sand!
Am I soooo old fashioned in my ways of reasoning when it comes to push-up bras for the very young? What do you think Darling?
Hmmmph... the pot is empty and my lipstick is smeared all over my cup! I think I’ll go buy a dozen new lipsticks to soothe my frazzled nerves... that should do the trick, I’m feeling much better already just thinking about it! I’ll just stay in the lipstick aisle and not look anywhere else for at least several more years and I’ll also pretend that my Littlest will stay little forever... I don’t think I’ll be breaking my lipstick habit ways anytime soon... Until next time my Dear Friend, stay lovely... Ta Ta!
Oooh, Vote Reminder Darling... Please Vote... HERE Thank you sooooo much my Dear Friend! xoxo
