Should a 13 year old be allowed to wear a G string

My daughter who is 13 very soon, who looks 16, asked me if she could wear a G string. I was quite shocked and said categorically NO WAY. She then went on to tell me that other girls wear them and they take the mickey out of you if you can see panty lines in the school trousers the wear. This all took place in the middle of a shop when we were purchasing underwear. Her older 19 year old sister was not impressed and told her so and her reasons being, that she feels that its an article of clothing that sexualises young girls and feels that it could lead onto to bigger things. My 13 year old ended in up in tears and now feels that we think she's with the boys. Can someone tell me if this is a fashion thing and it is something that girls wear or should I be suspicious.

Hmmmm!

I wouldn't like it because they're unhygienic IMO. Shudders

As for sexualising young girls..well yes I suppose so. I don't see how purely wearing a g string could "lead on to bigger things", but they are certainly designed for titillation which would make me uncomfortable with a 13 year old wearing them.

You can buy seam-free pants that don't show under clothes. I'd offer to get those as a compromise.

No. They are a conveyor belt from the anis to the vagina.

Anis? Bloody autocorrect! Anus.

what does "she thinks we are with the boys" mean ?

I wouldn't allow it.. very young for that. Sloggi do nice seam free pants.. I am sure they are available in Primark etc. Just say no.. the fact your 19 yr old is uncomfortable with the idea too says it all. I don't think it means she is engaging in sexual behaviour though..

I am 27 now and never wear one now yet when I was 13 pretty much every girl wore them and those who didn't were made fun of. Peer pressure? Yes. But it was more of a fashion thing than anything else.
The boys didn't know either way, it was when girls were getting changed for PE that it was talked about.

Asda do seam free lacy knicks

3 for 10 quid

Tbh seam free pants are the last thing a 13yr old would want to wear, maybe some boy shorts (although they would probably show under clothes so not much good!)

No. Just that really.

BlastAndDalmatians Thu 25-Apr-13 21:28:52

AnyFucker I think Op's daughter is worried her mum and sister think she is being promiscuous, or sleeping with boys.

I think.

okokokok Thu 25-Apr-13 21:28:57

Sorry I was imagining seam free mumsy style ones, sure some styles are nice

I wore them when I was in year 8/9 at school. I wouldn't wear them now. I don't see the problem really, it's only underwear.

AnyFucker Thu 25-Apr-13 21:32:58

confused

Another one who wore them loads at that age and wouldn't wear them now.

I don't see the problem with them either. Mines were from Tammy Girl! shock

They are not exactly comfy, and who is going to see them? I don't think there is anything "suspicious" going on, but I think there is a lot of VPL teasing going on in school.

I wore thongs at that age because it was the "cool" thing to do. I grew out of it. I don't see the big deal, tbh.

margaritathatcher Thu 25-Apr-13 22:17:27

13? FFS!

No, I wouldn't let my daughter wear a g string at that age.

They aren't the fashion in this neck of the woods anymore - very 00s. My 14 year old wears boy shorts. However, she is the sort of character that you wouldn t even consider teasing

ifancyashandy Thu 25-Apr-13 22:28:26

God, I bloody love thongs. Wear them everyday, unless wearing a short skirt. No hungry bum, comfy, no lines. I detest pretty much all other knickers. Brazilian ones are ok.

She's 13. Presumably no one is going to see them, other than when she changes at gym? I hated VPL at that age so bought them with my pocket money when my mum said no... She gave in!

There's thus stuff called loo roll. You clean yourself with it, it's great!

I manage to not get poo anywhere but down the loo and on the paper.
