A mom named Jenny Erikson stirred up a bit of controversy last month after her blog on a popular parenting blog talked about her future plans to take her now 9-year old on a trip to Victoriaâ€™s Secret to buy some nice underwear. From her blog:
â€śAs the mom of a girl that is soon going to decide she doesnâ€™t want cartoon characters on her underwear, and will be wearing a bra sooner rather than later, Iâ€™m going to have to figure out where weâ€™re going to purchase them. Itâ€™ll probably be Victoriaâ€™s Secret â€” and I have no problem with that. I even like that fact that they are marketing toward a younger audience. Whatâ€™s wrong with having fun, bright-colored underwear? Girls change all the time in front of each other â€” for sports or recreational activities that require it, at slumber parties or camp, for the school play â€¦ no one wants to be the girl with the ugly underwear.â€ť
What do you think the appropriate age for fancy underwear is â€“ is there one?
