  • My daughter is 8 too and I don't buy her briefs anymore (because they tend to hang over the top of the back of her pants!), but I do buy ones that have more than string on the sides - kind of like bikini's I guess, but modest ones. But I know what you mean - I buy a lot of her stuff at Justice, but their underwear mostly seems a little "grown up" for her.

  • i buy underwear at walmart. i never get the really little ones. my SD's mom gets her some of the smaller ones and I hate it. She is a kid. She doesn't need panties like that.

    and swim suits....I definately would not do string bikinis. I will get two peice but I use a lot of descretion.

  • No way! Wal-mart still carries packs of Hanes & Fruit of the Looms briefs for kids.

  • no. I won't buy them for myself either. They are uncomfortable not to mention unsanitary in my opinion

  • Who CARES what kind of panties they wear???? Do you think they're dropping their pants to show them?
    I buy my girls the panties they want. Just as my mom did for us.

  • a bathing suit? yes i would buy my 8 yr old daughter a bikini. not a friggin thong bikini, no. but a little girl bikini with flowers or something, sure. why not? she wants to be like mommy and her sister, and its not like shes got boobs to be hanging out or something. whats her belly button showing? big deal.
