How to Ask Your Mum for a Thong

So, you're finally at that time in your life where you have a sudden interest in wearing thongs. This is completely normal girls. So many women, young and old wear thongs these days they have become a norm, like knickers and boyshorts, there just looked at like another type of underwear. However, as you may know, not all people think so, I have heard women saying how young girls should not be wearing thongs, there for adults, strippers wear them, etc. And not surprisingly this will make you feel embarrassed to ask your mum incase she feels the same and tells you off for asking.

But, you know your mum better than anyone else, do you feel she will react this way or do you think she will reason with you. Once you've made up your mind it's then time to ask. But don't worry girls I have provided you a few ideas for asking your mom for a thong without sounding desperate. What I mean is don't just spring it on your mum, you need a reason for wanting to wear a thong whether its because you heard they were comfy, to avoid VPL or perhaps your getting picked on at school for wearing granny panties. Please read my suggestions below carefully but please leave a question if you're are still unsure.

First thing, Why do you want to wear a Thong?
Before you even thing about asking your mum for a thong, you need a reason. You can't just say hey mum I want a thong, she may ask what for. So if she comes back and says why... you already have a reason if this happens. Most girls age 12-16 usually want to wear a thong because they just do, no reason. But to convince someone like your mum this may not be enough. But of course if you're a grown women then there no need to ask your parents.

How to ask your Mum for a Thong
Please take a look at a few ideas I have suggested below and what you can say when you ask your mum for a thong. Some are quite simple but you may need to act up a little. But there is nothing wrong with this, although it many not be completely honest, this can actually be a good reason to wear a thong.

VPL - Visible Panty Lines - Panty lines are simply the seam of your knickers showing through under your trousers or skirts. This is very common with girls and is possible we will all get it with the wrong trousers sooner or later. But with the invention of a thong, its has no panty lines just a triangle at the top. The part that would usually show is concealed in your bum showing no lines across your backside. This makes your bum look so much smoother instead of ungly old pantylines acros your cheeks. So when you ask your mum, just tell her if you can try a thong to get rid of the panty lines in your favourite pants or perhaps your school trousers. It may even be a great idea to wear a pair of trousers when asking that show your panty lines very clearly, you can then show her and she will know what you mean.


Friends are wearing Thongs - Whatever you do, don't just come out and say my friends are wearing thongs so I want to. Some mums don't like there daughters being influanced by others and will just come out and say something like no, you shouldn't wear thongs just because your friends are. And she is right, but you can instead say can I try thongs because my friends do and they swear by them.

There are more Comfortable - But if you haven't warn thongs before how would you know. That's what your mum would likely say. So instead ask her if thongs are comfortable, then quickly move on and say (insert your friends name here) thinks there really comfortable even more comfortable than knickers. She may say no they ain't but you can say how would you know, you don't wear them do you. If she doesn't then she may let you get one to try without wasting your mony. Some mums look at them as just being uncomfortable, and would never dream about wearing them. So they assume there daughter isn't going to find them comfy either.

Girls Make Fun of You - This is an excuse you should use if it has some truth to it, as your mum may find out the truth by your other friends or possibly your school teacher. But most likely she will never know. She may however find this to be a concern, and may suggest sorting out the bullies picking on you. But say no, its OK mum, if I just wore a thong instead then its not an issue with them and they won't even mention it again.

How to start a Thong Discussion with your Mum
What ever you do just don't come out and say it, take it slowly and think through what your going to say. For some mothers you actually can just ask, but others you may not feel the courage and be brave enough to just ask for a thong. Instead, you can influance the conversation that eventaully turns into thong talk with your mum, and the magic words: Mum, can I have a thong. Take a look at my thong discussion starters below.
  • Start talking about needing new undies, from there you can start talking about what styles are available and ask your mum which ones she likes. You can show her a product page of underwear from an online shop selling underwear, but first make sure the undies displaying are cute and respectibe for teenage girls. If she picks out a couple, you can then say I like this one and this one and this one. You can point out a thong along the way and see how she reacts. But make sure she knows its a thong, or it's not worth it.
  • You may want to point out to her and say hey mum I can see your underwear lines, I get it all the time is so embarrassing when people can see. Once again your into a an underwear conversation and from there you can start talking thongs. Say, lots of girls at school wear thongs to get rid of them but im not sure if I could wear them, its it OK if I gave them a try and see if they get rid of my underwear lines.
  • Finally, if your into dance, you take sports such as netball, hockey, or similar, a thong may be required. You can come home and say mum I've been asked to get a thong before the next game. My coach/teacher mentioned that we need to prevent uncomfortable wedgies, but if you take up dance, you can say your teacher doesn't like panty lines showing and would prefer if the girls can wear something like a thong to avoid the VLP. Don't make out your teacher is mean and you must wearone or you can't dance. But if your mum see's your teacher often, then this may not be a good idea when asking for a thong.
A Thong is not for Boys or to be Sexy
If you really do want a thong for this reason, then I would have no respect for you, and I don't provide this information for that type of girl. When the thong sticks out the back of your jeans it's a real concern and it not sexy or clever. Many people, including myself, do not like this one bit and we make every effort to prevent it. It's possible it can happen accidently but for girls doing this on purpose is just nasty, just nasty. It sends out the wrong message and people will have words with you and even tell your off, and rightly so.

Wearing thongs this way is so 2003, and no one does it anymore. But I can tell you this, a sign of a thong showing above your trousers or jeans on purpose is an obvious way of knowing a girl has only starting wearing a thong. I know this by experience as some of my friends done it when they first started to wear thongs, but I can say I have not seen so much as a peek from them in the last few years, but they are older and mature now.

Hide behind a Door when you ask
Do you know, it's so much easier to talk to someone about sensitive subjects such as this one when they or you are stuck behind a closed door. This is the perfect time for you to ask your mum for a thong. Wait until she gets in the bath or maybe she's on the toilet doing you know what, and you can then go ahead and use one of our reasons from above then move on to ask for a thong. You can't have to see the expression on her face and you won't feel confronted.

Hi, I'm 12 and I need advice my mom left when I was young and its just me and my daddy, how do i ask him? he's preety progressive but i dont how he will respond.

You're 12, you shouldn't be wearing a thong. Try boyshorts or bikini cut panties.

Nicole said...

You don't really need have to ask your dad, simply buy a thong and when your done wearing it throw it in the laundry basket and wait for his reaction when he does the laundry. He'll either say no you can or cannot wear them.

You will have the opportunity to reason with him then like wearing for VLP - Visible Panty Lines.

Hello, I'm 15 and my mom is kind of strict on what I wear, I would like to know what to say and how to say it. I'm in weight lifting and my underwear always bunches up and its so noticable. My mom thinks it's too slutty.. How do I tell her?

Hi I'm 12 and I want to wear a thong. I think the lines of panties or boyshorts are ugly. Can you get a yeast infection from it? I'm really scared to ask my mom? Any tips? I know I read this but I'm still scared? Thank you and god bless.

Thongs aren't slutty unless you use them to be a slut. Women don't use them for gross reasons. Most don't. There really is no age limit for underwear! Maybe that's what you should tell your mum!!! Thongs are just a type of underwear! As long as you don't show off your bum, it's not slutty! Good luck! God bless you!

Anonymous said...

You could tell your aunt that it is just underwear and your not using it to be a slut. Excuse me for my language. In my opinion, it is appropriate for girls age 12 and up to wear thongs. Nobody knows your wearing one except for the girl who is using it! Your not using it for sexual reasons. You would just feel more comfy in them. If I were you, I would practice what your gonna say and act mature about it. Tell her why you need to wear one and say as long as I'm not showing off my bum, it's not slutty! Nobody will know its there'! Good luck and god bless.

Hi!!!!!!! I'm the same age as you and I want to wear a thong as well!!!! Well ask your padre( sorry I like those madre and padre words ) if you can go to kohls. Tell him where your gonna be( just say teen section they know where your talking about trust me) and tell him to meet you somewhere. Try starting out with three. He most likely won't say anything to you when he sees the things because your old enoughh and he knows what thongs are and he doesn't want to embarrass you. He might also say nothing because he's embarrassed as well!!!!! Lol. Or you can go to the mall with your friends and buy thongs. Your padre will find out but most likely will say nothing. And if he does just tell him that no one will see it and thongs are just a type of underwear and there is no age limit for underwear! Good luck and god bless!!!!

Anonymous said...

Good answer but I think anywhere from 12 plus is an ok age to wear thongs. Nobody knows it's there but the girl who is using them! As long as she is not using them to be a slut I think it's perfectly fine! God bless

Anonymous said...

It's the same person who answered the 2nd time. I would just tell him your gonna go to the teen section (trust me he'll know what you mean) and I would pik out one that's not the g-string for your first one. Maybe pik out a couple. He might give you a look that's not dirty but is kind of weird. If he says anything just say that it's just underwear and say your underwear shows through your pants. Good luck and god bless!!!!!!'

Hi I really want to wear a thong. Just for vpl. It's not like I'm going to wear a g string. I'm 12. Can you please help me ask my mom? She's the type where shell listen to you and then make a decision thank you!!!!!!

Nicole said...

Be sure to wait until your mom is in a happy mood and just come out with it. Just say mom, I'm really starting to hate my underwear lines showing through my pants is it OK if I try a thong. Some of the girls at school where them and im feeling uncomfortable now with pantylines. It's perfectly normal to start wearing thongs at 12, lots of girls do around your age and while some moms don't allow there daughters wearing thongs most moms are happy with it. Be sure to let us know if you need more advice.

I'm going to be 13 this year and I feel like I am ready to wear a thong. I feel I need to wear one because I am constantly embarrassed about my underwear line. I'm responsible and have good grades so I don't see why my mom would say no (Its not like im doing it for sexual attention). She wears thong also so I guess that might help a little. My best friend also wear one yet shes younger than me and our moms are also best friends and they usually agree on everything so if she can i bet i can. The problem is I'm scared to ask her. If she says no I don't want things to become awkward between us. I'm a very shy girl so i kind of don't have the guts. Any advice?

Anonymous said...

I'm 15 and I feel like the only girl who doesn't wear a thong. I've discussed about them before with my mom but she says they look uncomfortable. I hate how when I wear leggings VPL will show. People who are even younger than me will wear them. How do I convince that they are comfortable and I am old enough to wear them?

Nicole said...

To the first girl, I think any girl feeling self-conscious about underwear lines should own atleast a couple of thongs when the outfit requires it.

Your mom knows you're a well behaved girl so she won't disapprove due to this like when somes girls purposely show off there thongs.

If you don't have the courage to ask her face-to-face simply phone her when your next out shopping and ask if you can try thongs instead of regular underwear.

If not you could always ask your mom when she's next behind a closed door like having a bath then you can ask her through the door when your both alone.

Sarah the Dancer said...

Okay...so I'm 14, and I'm a dancer which means I'm extremely muscular/toned from my shoulders down. This makes some clothing items snug without me trying. Even my bootcut jeans show panty lines because I have a butt and I'm not flat back there. It's not like I can help it unless I buy jeans 2 sizes too big for me JUST to get rid of panty lines. To try to fix panty lines in dance costumes, (points are counted off at dance competitions for visible panty lines) I tried a pair of nude-colored "hipsters" (granny panties). They popped out of the bottom of my costumes. My panty situation is a NIGHTMARE! I'm scared to ask my mom because she's never alone! My brothers or my dad are ALWAYS with us! Even when she drives me to dance, my dad HAS to come! There is no time to talk to her and my dad WILL NOT know I want to wear thongs. He doesn't even know I have my period yet, I figure he'll just assume it by the time I'm 17 that it's happened and it's just a part of life. I'm a very modest girl. I don't even feel comfortable talking to my mom about my period or even needing new bras. I feel alone and scared. Sometimes I just give up and rock the panty lines in my leotards and jeans. Being muscular is impossible!

I'm 14 and haven't started wearing thong yet my mom is pretty cool but loud and likes to tell her friends everything! I hate that but I think it is time for me to start wear a thong but I am afraid that she will ask her friends if I should wear them I am about to go to high school and I really don't wanna be bullied about no wearing thongs. Please tellme what to do!

Anonymous said...

Hey wassup? K so to all girls I texted my mom and asked her. It's sooooo much easier to ask when ur not looking at her. For the dancer, tell her that ur underwear lines show through the outfit. Also tell her there's no age limit for underwear. To all girls, don't buy the really skimpy g strings and no lace!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Try cotton!!!!!!!!!! God bless you all!!!!!

I'm 13 I ride and show horses, I have to wear spandex like pants when I ride. I want to ask my mom for a thong, but I'm scared to ask. ( my mom is kind of strict) what should I do?

Nicole said...

If you need a thong just for riding it won't hurt just to buy a pair of thongs and wear them without your mom knowing.

You can then handwash them in the sink or in the shower/bath with you and dry them in your room or with a blowdryer.

Their be nice and fresh for next time you need them then.

My mom is the EXACT SAME WAY! I started wearing thongs at 14 now I'm 16. I just went up to my mom and straight up asked her but then I just asked her. I also asked her to keep it between us. My mom under stood and she did!! GOOD LUCK!!!!

Hey- I'm 12 almost 13 and I would lik to wear a thong I actually cut a pair of old underwear into like a thing thingy to see if I even thought it was comfortable and surprise- I haven't completely had a huge problem with vpl but I would still lik to wear one- I mean it's just a different type of underwear rite? But Back to the point should I wait a little longer to ask for one- I don't badly need one rite away? Oh and another question - do things cause any problems- ?

Same here, except I sewed one. I sew a lot. But now I feel terrible for keeping a secret from her, and its only been 2 days since I made that laced wonderful compfort. We tell each other everything, but this I wonder what she'll say. And plus, she always tells my dad, and hes the 6'5" cop that makes sure that we behave as well as the community. Help!

I ride horses, and we have to wear tight, legging type pants. They show my underwear line underneath, and that is really embarrassing. I'm only 12, and will be 13 in February, but I have no idea how to ask my mom for a thong, or if she will yes. A couple girls at my school wear them, but I would only wear them under leggings, tight dress, etc. I wear padded bras and cheekys, but thongs seem a little much to me. I really do hate my VPL though!

Im a guy who loves wearing thongs i never asked my mom i would buy on online once in a while

Hey guys, I'm 15. & I hate VPL. I would like to convince my grandma to get some thongs. Can someone give me some tips or advice?

I'm 12 and socially awkward towards family. And for me, saying 'thong is just like a bad word to me. I took some of my sisters new g-string thongs. This is my second day wearing it and I love them! How do I confront my mom about this, and persuade her to buy me some more?

I mainly prefer cotton anyway:) and your right, it is easier asking without facing her!

Hi, I want to buy a thong cause I just feel embarrased wearing my white-big-uncomfortable-bought-by mom panties. I'm 16 and my mom doesn't even have a thong, only granny panties and bras of the same color! I'm not afraid to ask her about buying a thong (although I already know the ansewr). Howver I'm afraid she'll consider I want it for sexual purposes because I date for the first time in my life a bf (it's been 5 months now). I DO NOT want it for that reason. How should I convince her? Any of the arguments mentioned doesn't help... :(

I am 12 and I really want a thong. And no not a skimpy g-string cuz I'm not going to be a slut and show it off. But my mom did ask me if i wanted to wear a thong but I said no cuz my older sis was in the room and it was really embarrassing. Me & my mom don't talk that much about girly things like periods and boys and that stuff. So how would I ask her? Btws I get really nervous talking to her about this kind of this too. I play hockey, so I thought about telling her that I need one for that, but all of my coaches r guys, so it's unlikely that their would say that. Please help!! Thank u so much to everyone that answered!!

Maybe start talking to your aunt or frandmother about it and then have them bring it up next time thwy talk about it.... they can say, u know she is getting older and might not want vpl so u should ask her if she wants to get a thong and tell her it ok to get onen...I actually went shopping with my aunt, got a thong, and put it in thw laundry...my dad dod the laundry, saw it, and simply did not care

Maddy said...

Hi,
I'm 12 years old and I want to start wearing thongs but I have a few questions. Are they uncomfortable? Because one of the reasons I wanted to start wearing them was because I hate panty lines, I just hate them!
Second, how do you prevent them from showing at the top, are there any tricks?
Thanks

Nicole said...

Maddy

Thongs can be uncomfortable just as a regular pair of full briefs can be prone to wedgies and digging in.

The trick is to find a 100% cotton pair of thongs with a narrow strip that runs between your bum cheeks. The seem must also be soft and very stretchy. But only you will find pairs of thongs that will suite your body type best. Well a pair of thongs might be comfortable for you it might be a nightmare for other girls.

If you wear lowrise jeans and pants then you'll thong will stay in place and the jeans will ride down as you bend over or sit down.

To prevent this wear a good pair of bottoms that sit still on your hips (like leggings, high waisted skirts, etc.) and buy low waisted thongs that sit well below your waistline of your clothing.

Hi im 13 and I do jazz dance and I want to wear a thong. I already asked my mom but she refuses to let me wear one and says that thongs are not appropriate for any ages. I want to wear them because I hate vpl and I have a costume that has sheer pants that really show off your under wear. What should I say to her
Please help meeeeee!!!!!

Hi, I'm 16 years old but my mom is extremely strict on what she lets me wear. But I'm in track and volleyball and I don't like the VLP. I've been into leggings as well, and I can't get to the store by myself, and I don't know how to as her?

Nicole said...

As your mom as already let you know where she stands on the thong issue this actually makes it a little easier for you compared to girls who don't know if there mom would let them wear thongs.

I think the best thing to do at this time - although it doesn't seem the best option - is to keep asking your mom for a thong. Be sure to tell her about the VPL issue and remind her your regular underwear is visible to people.

Tell her dancers in your class wear thongs for that exact same reason and there costumes look so much better.

Be sure to updates us all if your mom responds in a positive or negative may I'll try to assist further.

Nicole said...

To the 16 year old with strict mom this is the same old issue for many girls wishing to wear thongs - having to tend with a strict mom and feeling embarrassed about asking for a skimpy peice of undies and not your regular bikini style.

Taking up track and volleyball is the perfect reason to wear thongs due to the tight little shorts you have to wear but for leggings you'll have to make sure the thong is nude or flesh colour - or it will be visible through the leggings and you do not want your mom to see that.

First thing to do is make sure just you and your mom are alone in the house and begin by coming through the door with a pair of pants that show your panty lines. But wait until a little later when she is locked behind a closed door - such as taking a shower or bath - and ask through the door if you could try a thong to wear with certain pants. Just make sure it sounds natural and not reheased.

You don't have to ask your mom for a thong you could just buy a couple of pairs when your next out shopping and wear it and put it in the laundry and just tell your mom your reasons for wearing it as explained above if she confronts you about it.

Nicole said...

To the 11 year old cheerleader you may be a little disadvanged to other girls because of your age and moms and guardians don't want there little girls wearing thongs.

But saying that wearing thongs for dance and cheer is very reasonable for younger dancers because regular underwear can be very visible through tight shorts or costumes.

It also makes it easier to deal with the issue around your peers so wearing a thong would keep them off your back about your underwear preferance.

But don't worry about your friends thinking it's slutty they are young girls after all and they are getting to that age where they will be wanting to wear thongs in high school and you'll just be ahead of them with your fashion sense being little more advanced than them. If they ask say you need them for dance otherwise just stay off thong talk with your friends in the future.

It's extremely hard to ask parents let alone grandparents but they may not want to deal with this issue so the best thing to do it just buy a pair and put it in the laundry when your done and see if your grandparents ask you about it. Just tell them it vital for cheer as your regular undies are visible else.

But if you do need to ask, be sure to ask your grandma.

Your mom is fully aware of your intentions of wearing a thong now so it's up to you to take it to the next step.

You really need to text your mom again when your out with friends shopping and say in the text now is a good time you can buy a thong as your friends are getting underwear.

So I'm going to be 14 this year and I really feel like I'm the only one who doesn't wear a thong...

I know those don't work well and ppl in younger grades wear them and there totally noticeable! I hate ppl seeing my underwear. I feel kind of ashamed on wanting to wear a thong:/ I really wanna start feeling confident in myself and tbh a thong will help a lot.. Thanks (:

I'm 12 and I like to wear leggings a lot but I'm really insecure about underwear lines so I will wear a long shirt or just find something else to wear. some of my friends wear thongs. I also get really bad underwear lines with my jeans. I have enough underwear so I can't bring up that I need more and then point out a thong. one time when I was buying underwear with my mom the under wear that I liked didn't have my size so the lady pulled out a drawer of underwear and there was a lot of different kinds and she asked what kind it was and my mom told her what kind and then she said ya definitely not the thing haha. so I'm really nervous about how to ask her and what her reaction might be. and it's not like I'm doing it cause I think it's cool and they definitely won't be hanging out the back of my pants I just want to know how to ask her so it won't be so awkward. PLEASE ANSWER I NEED HELP!

Nicole said...

Don't be afraid to ask your mom your both girls and she probably knows what thongs are all about. You're over thinking what your mother might say but in reality she can either say yes or no and leave it at that. Have you asked your mom yet?

Hey, I just finally got approval to wear a thong. I was very embarrassed to go up to my mom and tell her why I had wanted thong. She had told me I needed to wait until i was 16, multiple times, I am 14 now. I wrote a letter explaining all the reasons why and made sure not to say that because other people are. I told her i would be responsible, want to just try them, and I really don't want visible panty lines. She understood when I woke up after she had read the letter. She's letting men purchase a couple.

Just say to your mom when your in VS if you can try thongs as your friends wear them in gym and prefer them to regular panties.

Hey all girls! Just want to say I wore my first thong at 8 and am now 13. I love thongs and g-strings, sooooooo comfortable. I feel so feminine in satin, nylon, and lace ones, try those! Especially satin and nylon! Avoid cotton please do yourself a favour! God bless!

Hi! I'm 13 and I want to wear a thong. I know that at my age I don't want to wear a g-string, but I want to wear a thong. I wear a type of underwear that is called cheeky, and I asked to wear things last year but my aunt said no. She said they were uncomfortable and stuff like that. I want one because I have thin jeggings and you can see my underwear sometimes! Help I don't want to ask again because I'm afraid of her saying no...

In my opinion I what I would say or do is go where u buy your underwear, and then when your choosing your underwear you can just say "Mom can I get on thong because my when I wear legging my underwear line shows and its wierd" or u can say "Mom is it okay to get a thong because when I wear skirts my underwear line shows" don't say "Mom can I get a thong because all my friends are wearing them" don't say that because they are going to think your just getting influenced by friends and they might say it's their parents decision and your not them.

I'm 15 and today me and my mom were at WalMart. I saw the thongs and I simply asked her "Can you get these for me, I just want to try them out and see what they're like" and she bought them for me, no big deal. I was actually surprised. Usually I'd be scared to ask her for things like that.

So I'm 15 and my best friend gave me a thong and a bra but I don't have a close relationship with either of my parents and need some of those things that girls need. My mom and dad are very strict and very christian, and they say that everything I wear right now is for naughty resins should I just keep hiding it till I get to college?

Girls... instead of asking for thongs, ask your mom to go underwear shopping. When your looking point our a cute pair of cheekies (cheeksters) they're like thongs but have a little more coverage. Start by asking for those. Your mom may think they're more appropriate. Spend a couple trips or two getting cheeksters until your mom's comfortable with those. Then maybe slip one thong into the cart. Then slowly transition into getting thongs instead. That way you don't have to ask and your mom may be a little easier on you... not exactly sure how I should word this. Just start with cheeksters. They will also help with vpl

Buy a couple pair of cheekies one day and just slip a thong into the cart. Kind of cover it with cheeksters.

I'm 13 and I bought myself a thong because I didn't want vpls. My mom doesn't know about it and she's really strict. How should I tell her that I have one?

Hey I'm 13... It's summer going into grade 8. I remember all the girls last year would wear thongs... So when I was 12 I asked my stepmom for one because I'm a gymnast (not comp) and everyone else wears them... Then there is also the very noticeable vpl that I have. My whole life my stepmom would allways buy my underwear and she likes boy shorts so that's what I allways get. It's so uncomfortable. Last summer I was in the mall in vs with my cousin who has been wearing them since grade 7 and she got some. My grandma asked if I wanted any but I was 11 and was going into grade 7 so I didn't think I would need one. All of my friends have and wear them but my parents still say no. I'm going to the mall in 12 days and I hope I'm allowed to get some and if you guys reply to this before then that would be great to show my parents. They don't think I need one and don't care about everyone else like me... I'm just tired of having people allways mention to me that I have Vpl and if I'm not allowed to wear it to school... At least to gymnastics. Please help me with this๐Ÿ˜” Thanks

I got my first couple of thongs when i was 13 without my mum knowing but my sister did. My mum thought they were my sisters so my sister delivered them to me every week :)

I am a 32 year old mother of a 14 year old girl. While we have had our spouts and differences of opinion, she is generally a good respectful girl. Note we are both Christians, originally Jewish.

We got into thong discussion when I caught her sneaking into my underwear drawer and "borrowing" my panties, mamy of which are thongs. I confronted her and suggested that we shop together for underwear that would fit her better.

We do all of our clothes shopping together, it is a great mother daughter experience! God bless and thank you all!

Hi, i have a kinda strict-ish mom, and I've asked her about things before and she doesn't come back with the nicest comment in the world. If you know what I mean. I hate my pantylines when I wear leggings and I'm 13. I don't know how to ask her because i think she might flip out. What should I say?

Anonymous said...

I'm 14 and I want to ask my mom if I can start wearing thongs. I'm not really embarrassed about asking her but I don't want her to be awkward about it because she'll ask me how it feels and keep looking at my butt, what should I do to make it less awkward?

I'm 14 and will be 15 in October. I want to start wear things because I do cheerleading and I am one of the only girls that have VPL. I hate panties lines and I hate always having to pick at my underwear. My mom asked me before when we were shopping but she asked both my twin sister and I and my twin said no before I could say anything. I'm kinda confused about how my mom feels about them because she asked me but also makes faces at them. I'm extremely shy and don't know what to do.

As your mom has shown an interest in buying you a thong in the past, I don't think it will be a problem if you just go out and buy a few pairs.

Just wear them, pop them in the wash and with a bit of luck your mom won't say anything. And if she does, it really is no problem, just say you thought you'd give them ago.
