    Maybe this speaks to my low standards, but I also do not see a lot of girls dressed in what I would consider "immodest" clothing. I will say that sometimes in the summer I see shorts that are a bit short for my liking, but never anything that actually shows butt cheek. Mostly I see girls in skinny jeans and t shirts and similar tops, like these:

    Juniors' Tops - Shop Tees, Blouses & Tank Tops - jcpenney

    Juniors' Jeans - Shop Denim Jeans, Skinny Jeans & Jeggings - jcpenney

    These looks really don't bother me at all. I agree with Melissa that I would rather see a girl in a cute pair of skinny jeans and a cute top than in pajama bottoms and a hoodie any day of the week.

    It's not so bad right now that it's winter, but last summer I had a hard time finding tops for Tiven that came down past her waist, everything was cropped at waist level, and she's long-waisted so it was even more of a gap than it might be on a shorter-waisted person such as myself. I couldn't believe how many holiday dresses this season were super-short, well above the knee. They are probably intended to be worn with tights, but when you have a daughter like mine who won't wear tights, it's a problem. And I don't think skinny jeans or leggings are appropriate on a child, at least not without a skirt or long top over them. You shouldn't be able to see the outline of a butt. But those tops are very cute, I might have to rediscover JCP!

    Me too. Pajamas and a hoodie are just slobbish, IMO. Anyhoo, the type of trashy clothing I see is like thong hanging out of super low cut jeans, push up bras and (again) low cut skin tight tops - boobs falling out all over the place, butt crack, tons of makeup, etc. My own 5 y.o. wears skinny jeans and cute tops

    Do girls still do the whole "whale tail" thong thing? That's soooo 2003.

    I don't think that skinny jeans or leggings are inappropriate on little girls at all. I do agree that with leggings (for adult women as well as little girls) you want a top that covers the butt.

    Everyone is going to have different standards for dress on a little girl. It would not hurt my feelings at all if they became a little more modest. I do not want to dress my girls in such a way that creepy old men stare at them.

    I think that most kids +are not quite sure what to think. Dress in tight, revealing clothes and you are a ****. Cover yourself up and you are a prude. Yikes! I do agree that we place too much value on what we women look like but I know that I like to put makeup on and when I go out I will wear a fitted top.

    I think parents have a duty to help their children dress and look appropriately. Which means no pajamas outside of the home or an ER, brushing your hair and your teeth. Wearing clothes that fit you. Not too small and not too big. Wearing weather/seasonal appropriate clothes and understanding that going outside the "norm" can have consequences. Our society is not going to be okay with a CEO wearing a torn mini skirt and UGGS in the middle of July nor will it be okay to have your face covered in piercings and tattoos in that setting. At least not now.

    I have found that most of the clothes in the JR section are really fitted. My DD is almost 13 and she is not wanting to wear anything fitted, she is not liking her new "assets" at all. I have also noticed necklines are so low that without a cami her bra shows. the bra section is either totally training bras, or stuff that is more sexy then what I wear. They have padded push up bras in the little girl underwear section.

    The shorts are what really get me, DD calls them "denim underwear" My nephews girlfriend wears them, and her cheeks actually hang out. It is kind of sad, she is not an overweight girl, but her shorts do not look good on her at all.

    Yeah i just wanted to say that I don't see inappropriate dressing as a rampant problem, at least not in my community.

    The pajama pant thing. Ughhh. Emma has started cheering and when the girls are done they often put on these fleece sweatpants jobbers (that easily double as pajama pants) to go home in. Well yesterday she had piano lesson after cheer and she forgot to bring a regular change of clothes. So i had to bring her to piano with these fleece sweatpants with giant rainbow hearts all over them. Needless to say, I told her she needs to remember to bring different clothes with her if we are not going home!

    And Melissa! So nice to see you around here
