Basically, when would you let your daughter start shopping at VS for sexy undies and the like? Would you be okay with, say a young teen shop at VS or buying sexy clothes? Or do you not really see it as a big deal?

For me, I was pretty strict with her through most of her teen years. When she first asked for thongs at 14 it was a definite no, and while shopping I would not let her buy something that I deemed to risque. Even at 17 no thongs but boy shorts were fine. I personally don't think any girl under 16 should be buying anything to risque but that's just me. I know there are girls super young say 12, 13 that buy thongs/g strings etc. And it just makes me If my daughter wanted things like new bras/panties she would almost always shop at wal mart or target.

I have a 12 year old daughter who will turn 13 in November. I have no issue with her getting the cotton briefs from VS, but I wouldn't let her buy any of their other undies. And she isn't allowed to dress "sexy" until she is 18 and buying all of her own stuff/paying her own rent/mortgage.

I don't think it is ever appropriate for a girl to wear sexy things. A woman is free to dress as sexy or unsexy as she likes, so I go with 18 years old.

I agree. Any girl under age 18 should not be wearing anything sexy and that includes underwear.

I sometimes see girls wearing shorts that are so short, they look like boy short panties and in most cases they are with their mother. I don't get it. If I had a daughter, she would dress cute and age appropriate...never sexy.

Looks like youve done made up your mind where your kids are concerned but for me id say around 16.

Luckily I only have a young son at the moment. But, if I ever have a daughter, I wouldn't allow her to go into a place like VS until she was 18 and can buy it herself. Girls and teens have enough pressure to feel/look sexy. I wouldn't support my daughter making that a priority.

When shopping at VS a few months back a mom was bra shopping for her daughter who was about 10... I'd love to know what these women are thinking! I could only hope and assume she wasn't buying her a push up bra LOL! Even if she was going for the "pink" line, that's supposedly targeted at college age women.

I'm flexible on the issue.

I had a 1911 .45 when I was 13.

"Panties" are a easy adjustment.

Depends what she wants them for also. I have to meet these kids first. I can smell a creep a mile away as well. Most cases she probably wants them to "fit in" and be popular with the other girls. I don't have a problem with that in of itself.
