Did my old neighbors think that it was a good idea to buy my 4 yo dd a bikini for her bday??? She MIGHT be able to wear it in the bathtub!!!!!! Not appropriate for a 4 yo at all. Ughhh. Of course she thinks it is wonderful...all frilly with butterflies.

make it disappear! We dont do bikini's either...My little girls will stay little as long as they can...they'll grow up fast enough...they dont need the help of "adult" clothing making them look "sexy" or more adult than they need to.

UGH

She absolutely will NOT be wearing it outside, and actually I think making it disappear is the best thing. I agree about kepping lil girls little as long as possible!! I won't even buy them short shorts or "booty shorts" which it seems like it is all the make for little girls. I finally found some longer shorts for both my dd's, they hit mid thigh, even better are the ones that almost hit their knees!!

Really?? For a 4 year old?? Come on now! Tell her you're going to put it away for her and later when she asks for it "forget" where you put it.

I dont do short shorts either....and my family (extended) doesn't understand that....dh's grandma will buy them clothes at garage sales and they'll be like SHORT skirts (look like trashy mini skirts) that have shorts under them so they assume they are ok sicne they are "skorts"...I'm like um...they still LOOK like trashy mini skirts on my 7 year old..NO WAY!!!!! I dont want her to look attractive to the creepy old men....or whatever...teaching her to dress modest is HARD this day and age...I'm not an old fogey that wont allow ANY skin showing....but yeah...short shorts and bikini's are definitely OUT!

My 7 yo dd has a boy down the block who likes her. Last summer he asked to touch her behind....my 15 yo son wanted to scare (ummm...beat) the heck outta the lil boy. He is really protective of his lil sisters.

Good for him! I wouldn't make the bikini disappear. I would explain to her that it is inappropriate and immodest and that you don't want her to have it. Then toss it.

I am going to be the oddball. 4 year old, bikini and sexy are never in the same sentence for me. But I don't live in your world, so if you're uncomfortable with it, then get rid of it.
My kids wear 2 piece bathing suits, the athletic kind, with the boyshorts and tankini. And we've just come up with a rule for when they're older, either big top and smaller bottom or bigger bottom and smaller top (providing it keeps you covered up) but no small bottom small top. But we're not there yet, they like the same suits that I do.

I am with you on the shorts thing though, how much shorter can they get. My kids do wear shorts, but only at home, or when it's really hot outside, but not the supershort numbers that they have out there now.

And really, who looks good in those shorts anyways, and when they do look good, who are they appropriate on?

I hope if we have girls that my boys stick up for their little sisters like that. Growing up we had relatives that would give me clothes for birthdays that my parents did not think were appropriate and my mom would sit down and we'd talk about why I wouldn't be wearing it and then we'd get rid of it.

This is one reason I love having boys It is so easy to dress them for the summer without having to wade through all the inappropriate clothes that are out there for little girls

My oldest had a two piece last year. It wasn't a teeny bikini more of a sports bra w/ some skorts. So I guess I'm neutral on the subject. I don't want my girls to dress inapproritely but I'm not against all two pieces either.

Can you exchange it for a one piece?

No, they aren't the types to give a receipt. I'd be perfectly happy if the girls wore sweat pants and turtle necks for swimming.

Oh just wait until she's a teenager and see what kind of arguments you have!! We had a major argument last summer about my 15 yo's choice of bathing suit. (She had it circled in a catalog. It was so low cut around her crotch I don't know why she would even bother wearing one. I did let her get a two piece, but it was a tankini. That was our compromise. The worst part is she is oblivious to how curvy and thin she is. (I wish I had that problem) She wears a size 0 and is very tall. I wish she could wear sweats to swim in too.

Hmm, seeing as she loves it so much id let her wear it with a rashie over the top. But thats my solution to everything, "Put a rashie over the top"

We don't do two piece swimsuits here either. Just don't. We talk about appropriate dress so all the kids understand, but don't get much that is inappropriate. I guess we are lucky.

I'd tell her it was inappropriate and throw it out as well. Two piece swimwear is not allowed here. Neither is short shorts.

thought about this, i guess i figured i have lots of time left.

Rae has a 2 piece swim suit from last yr. i never really thought anything of putting a 2 yr old in a cute 2 piece. but i'm sure my mind will change as the girls get older.
