Manufacturers listen up: My tween-age dau. wont be dressing like a hoochie mama!

Why is it, once my dau left the Toddler-6X size, the clothes when from cute & tasteful to hoochie mama? My child will not be wearing low cut, low rise, writing on the butt, etc. trashy clothing. Where do you find acceptable clothing for your daughters?

  • It's becoming harder and harder. My daughter turned 4 on May 30th and we don't do halters, short shorts, etc etc etc. ... I was horrified that this was the 1st Summer I couldn't goto kmart or walmart and get her a few outfits dirt cheap. Just the $3 tops/bottoms that she bums around the yard, pool, makes mud pies in, etc. I am not sure if it's across the board marketing for this year or just the age/height/weight she is at now but my husband and I were disgusted at the options. We took a radical stand and allowed capris and bermuda length shorts only. Most of her current wardrobe is from Oshkosh, which is apparently about the only company left that wants a child to look like a child and not a smaller and flatter adult female.

  • Good question, but it seems to be the same for adult costumes too! Seriously, if I see one more "sexy cop", "sexy nurse", "sexy pirate" or "sexy ANYTHING" costume, I'm going to boycott the entire holiday, heh.

  • this is a rare sneak peek at 2011 kids swimwear collection from a major fashion designer. I think the FBI should be involved when it's this gross, really. I also consider this a sneak peek that walmart, kmart, etc etc will have shorter shorts and slutier everything else in the kids section next year as well.

  • Gap has really gone in an entirely other direction, which I really appreciate. They also make their kids clothes look like adult clothes. But they look like art majors, business men, professional rugby players, or other respectable professions, NOT strippers, street walkers, or eye candy.

    Their clothing of course is expensive but the quality is fantastic and it will last as long as your child fits it.

  • My dd wears low rise jeans and a tshirt/blouse/polo that covers the waist line (most days). I have never had a problem finding clothing that covers her- except that I have to find slim sizes... then, we also don't shop at places like walmart... I was really surprised when I saw some of the clothes in there. Ick.

  • Wow, I totally misread this, I thought it was about Halloween costumes. Don't mind me, carry on!
