My daughter went to victoria secrets to spend her birthday money (she's 14) to buy cute panties today. After bragging about her very first vs purchase, a 'friend' ridicled us by saying she is too young to be in a store like that. I don't understand what is wrong with a teenager going into vs. She is old enough to need a bra! Quite frankly she bought very modest only pink merchandise, and it is so comfy she can't wait to buy more. What age do you let your daughter go to vs for their first cute delicates?

Mine are 6 and 3. But 14 sounds about right. That store has nice stuff, not all is "slutty" looking.

They are being stupid. Nothing wrong with her shopping there.

Your friend is stupid. My DD is 13 almost 14 and I pan on taking her in to get her some bras.

It's not like the entire store has 'slutty' clothes. They're silly!

I think 14 is appropriate.  I thought their pink line was directed more that way anyhow the more innocent look rather than the come hither look.  I wish i could go there but their bras dont fit me right.

Too young?   Doesn't Victoria Secret have a spin off store called Pink....for the younger crowd?   

I once purchased a New Years Eve dress from Fredericks of Hollywood.  I was 18.   I got so much crap about it before anyone even saw it!   People just assume that they only sell ultra sexy stuff.

Nothing wrong with that. As long as she bought age appropriate stuff. Not buying slutty thongs and corsets and shit.

My mom wouldn't let me shop there till I was 18. I hated it. If we have a girl I'll probably take her about 14.

I think 14 is fine! At 16 I would go with my BFF to VS...she had (well, still has, lol) an obsession with cute panties. Plus, isn't the whole point of the Pink line to appeal to the younger ladies?
