How can I get my daughter to stop being so picky about her underwear???

Every time she puts on her underwear she wants to change it like 5-10 times to find the ones that fit her the right way for that day. It drives me crazy! I dont know what it is about her and the underwear. I know they fit her, they aren't too tight or too big. I just dont know what to do! HELP!

  • OMG I was the same as a kid.... sometimes I'd go without even. I outgrew it around 7, I think, when we discovered silky/satin ones. I'm guessing it's more of a texture/sensory thing than a size thing. Try boy cuts/ boy briefs as an option, maybe.... .... try try try. and when u find something that finally works, buy all they have in stock.

  • what about taking her to the store & letting her pick out her own? maybe she will be more likely to wear them without complaint if SHE picked them herself??????

  • buy multipul pairs of the kind she likes. But It sounds like she is the HOH

  • Personally, I would just put one or two pairs in her drawer at a time and tell her that the rest are still in the wash.

  • My 6 year old use to do it until I put a stop to it because it was starting to annoy me. She would have all these panties laying on her bed and she's changing into them every minute. I asked her why she changes underwear constantly, and she would tell me she's playing dress up.

  • The style may be bugging her. Some panties have itchy elastic that drives me crazy. Get her some that have the elastic bands (at the top and around the legs) covered in material instead of exposed.
