11 year old and bra strap showing?

How picky should I be about my daughters bra straps showing? She is not the least bit concerned with looking cute or sexy, so thats not a problem. But it's getting warmer which means more tank tops, etc. She has several racing back bras, sports bras, they are just cotton, simple nothing flashy, should i fuss about the straps showing? Is it acceptable for a sports bra to show?

bra straps arent an issue to me.. i mean i prefer for correct under garments to worn with the corresponding apparel..but if a bra strap is showing its really not an issue...you could buy her cear bra straps.

strap less bras are tricky...

they have to fit just right or they all ways riding down and she will have to constantly pick it up...drawing more attention to the bra...

Personally, I can't stand that. I know a lot of girls bra straps are showing. It used to bother my DD at first now she could care less. At least while she's at home.

This is how I see it: if you dont want her dressing a certain way at 16, don't let her at 8 to 12 (when they still 'care' about your opinion...) we don't wear tank tops (boys or girls) and shorts/skirts have to go past the knee. Dressing modestly is very important to us and we have explained why we made this decision and follow it ourselves. So far we haven't had a hassle.
