My daughter (16 years old) is going to Homecoming with her boyfriend in a few weeks. We are going shopping for a dress this weekend. This morning before she went to school she asked if she could get a gaterbelt with seemed stockings when we get her dress. I told her that I'd think about it, I've been thinking all day and can't make up my mind. Any advice?

I can see your dilemma. If she just wants to be ultra stylish, then maybe.

But I suspect that the garter belt would be shown to her partner... not a wise thing. I believe I'd rule that it was too suggestive and inviting. :(

I'm sure it's just for fashion, well mostly anyway. It's her first big formal thing and I know she wants feel extra girly.

How is a garter belt extra girly?

At that age I would allow it because she needs to make hey own choices. We would talk about the why though.

That has come to mind also. I think that is what will happen.

Just remember that hormones are rampant at that age. :)

Yikes. While I was a little bit older then that when the hormones got the best of me (but only by like a year) I know why I dressed like that. I would just be very cautious. You know your own daughter better then me but I also know that I was able to sneak alot by my parents by making it seem very innocent when it wasn't.

I decided not to go with the garterbelt. The dress she picked out was short and I just didn't like the idea of people might being able to see it. OK, it's not that short (about mid-thigh), but still I didn't like the idea. We did go with seemed hose and she is happy with that.

Sounds like a good decision.
