A friend of mine just asked when it's appropriate for a girl to get thongs. My feelings are, when they get a job and buy it themselves. I don't mind supplying conservative panties but I'm not buying a thong because the obvious reason for wearing those is to show them off. Who says, gee, this thong is SOOO comfy! But there are mixed answers, some think when they do their own laundry or go to highschool it's ok for the mom to buy them if they ask. Your thoughts?
