my 12 year old and i share clothes. i wear a 5/7 usually. some of the 7s are little big on her, but she can still wear them. my tops are usually a 7/9 (boobage LOL) and she can wear those, mostly, but the big thing with that is she has to watch the neckline to make sure its not too low on her....

in fact, ive made my closet off limits as too many things end up missing.... (i dont mind if she ASKS, but going in and taking is not cool in my book)

I agree..my daughter the oldest is 20 Im 5'5" and 120 lbs..she cant wear my clothes she is only5'1" and 100 lbs..my 11 year old is almost as tall as her 20 yr old sister and she loves when her sister gives her, her t-shirts.
I wish I had the boobage issue..lol
I do have to say my work clothes or dress clothes are a little to revealing for my boyfriend daughter she wont get them...lol..

Yay for sharing! I end up giving my old shirts and whatnot to my nieces even though those girls are stick skinny, lol! During this past summer, I ended up borrowing my one of my mother's dress tops for internship interviews.

Awwww...I was so excited when I got to share clothes with my mom. Unfortunately I outgrew her shoe size within a few months and her pants were always too big, but I still borrow her shirts!

Over the weekend I was looking at my younger daughter's array of school pictures from over the years, from K through 7th grade, and I noticed in EVERY SINGLE ONE she is wearing a hand-me-down from her older sister!

When I pointed this out she was perfectly OK with it, she said appreciated getting a new wardrobe every time she changed sizes, Now, ME, I hated hand-me-downs from my sister!

My younger son wears almost nothing but hand me downs. I try to make sure he doesn't wear the same shirt in a school picture that his brother wore in his picture from that year. I was the oldest, and got hand me downs from a cousin and a family friend. I think they would have been nice to supplement my wardrobe, but my mom would literally not buy me anything new. I didn't like that.
