i took dd to the mall today,she wanted to go into hot topic to look at the clothes so we get in there and theres another mom and daughter in there. my dd looks at the clothes and then both girls start talking,my dd started saying how she wanted one of the "corset" shirts,the other girl said "eh i wouldnt buy those ever again,the boning bends in and left me bruises" my dd then goes "oh well then" and she laughs and looks at the regular shirts,the other girl then says "you can get pretty good ones online,if your moms ok with it" my dd looks to me and i walk over,dd says "can we order a corset shirt for me when we get home?" i shake my head and say "no just pick one out here" dd then says "but i dont want to get bruises" i then say "well then dont get one,but im not going to order you one" the other girls mom walks up and says "just buy her one,its not going to hurt anything,my daughter is wearing a real one right now" the other girl lifts up her shirt a little and shows a tiny bit of a sand colored corset,then the mom says "she needs it to keep her back straight,other wise she slouches" the mom then grabs the girls shirt and lifts it up farther and hits the corset hard then says "hear that? thats how you know its a strong corset" i felt horrible for the girl,she looked like she was about to cry....her mom walked away and she told me "my mom hated corsets when i started liking them,then all of a sudden she embarrasses me because i wear them under my clothes" my dd gave the girl her number and we went separate ways.but my god what mother would do that?!
