How short is too short for a skirt?

I'd say if they can't bend over without showing something.

  • I agree. If they bend over (without bending the knees) and you can see, upper thighs, butt or panties, THAT is way to short.

  • We use the fingertip rule in this house.

  • I agree, If you can't sit down or bend over without showing then it's way to short.

  • Most schools use the finger tip length. While some use the three inches above the knee.

  • I agree as well. I cringe when I see teenage girls who wear skirts that just barely cover their bums. Then wonder if their parents know if they're wearing skirts like that, and if they do, why in the world they'd ever let them walk out of the house like that.

  • If they don't have the inappropriate clothes to change into, then they can't change into them. Most high schools have dress codes (all of the chicago public ones do), and students dressed inappropriately are sent home and the parents get called.
