Dear Hope: My Mom Doesn’t Like My Low Cut Shirts
I am 15 years old and my mom Is pissed because I wear low cut shirts. I don’t think it’s a big deal but she says I am asking for trouble. How am I asking for trouble? What she doesn’t understand is that guys look at me now. Before no one noticed me. Is there anything wrong with wearing my shirts like that.
Parents usually just want what they think is best for you. I think what your mom is trying to say is that it she worries you will get the wrong kind of attention. Are they noticing you or are they noticing what’s under your shirt?
It can be fun and exciting to have the guys notice you, but for what reasons? If all they are interested in is your cleavage then maybe that’s not the attention you want. They should notice you for you and not just how low your shirt is. You know there is more to a person than how they look or dress. You personality shines through and that will be enough for someone to notice. I know it’s hard when that is not happening right away, but it will. The right guy will notice you. You deserve someone who is interested in YOU, not your cleavage.
Unless your mom says you are not allowed to wear low cut shirts, it’s really your decision. You get to decide what your style is and what you put on your body. It’s not up to me to say if there is anything wrong or right about it. I just ask you to think about your reasons and decide if it’s right for you.
Thank you for being brave and sending in your question.
