Why can't I wear short shorts?

Asked by: Diza 464 views Fashion & Accessories , ,

Alrighty.. So I’m a thirteen-year-old Romanian girl. Yes, I am a Christian. I’m not allowed to wear shorts above 5" inseam and they can’t be extremely tight (that I understand). I’m not aloud to wear leggings without a longer shirt that covers my bum. I don’t understand why.. Why can’t I wear 2 1/2-3" inseam shorts? My mom woul be fine with it, it’s just my dad. I don’t get it.. And I do NOT want to show off! I swear! They just sell a lot more patterns and colours of shorter shorts than bermudas and such. And they’re super cute when they have different patters and stuff. Any suggestions on how I could persuade my dad into letting me wear what I want? I haven’t exactly talked to him about it.. I don’t want to make him like angry or anything. Help..? :(

    Because you’re his baby girl and he doesn’t want you showing off your body to the world, he’s not alone. If he didn’t care about you he would let you dress however you want. I don’t believe for a second you don’t want to show a little bum, you want to look good and be noticed. But give your dad the respect he deserves and try to dress modestly, you’ll learn as you get older that modesty can actually be more attractive than showing off curves.

    I feel you babe ? I am also a christian too. My parents dont agree with me wearing too-short-shorts and short skirts and such. I know that it’s today’s fashion, but seriously? I have found that i don’t feel to comfortable going out with ‘denim underwear’ on. So here are my suggestions:1) Thrift shops. I know they may seem a little gross, but seriously, they are treasure troves for over sized shirts and sweaters for you to wear over leggings. Also, you can find some shorts that are appropriate lengths, or even get some jeans and create your own cut-off shorts (just check with your dad first before you cut)2) when you buy shorts, if they have a cuff, unpick the stitching holding the cuff up, and fold it down for a little extra length. . 3) if you have a pair of shorts that you really like, but are too short, wear some sheer tights underneath for a little extra coverage Good luck ?

    I am muslim and my parents treat me the exact same way with the exact same regulations. Ask them if you can wear short-shorts around the house or with tights underneath. stay away from high waisted though- they probably wont say yes to those. Buy loose fitting, summer type shorts and wear them to the beach. You win (you get to wear short-shorts) but they also win too (you are still modest most of the time)hope that helps, and good luck :)

    what don’t you understand about your dad not wanting you to look like a hoe?3-1/2in should be the shortest than anyone respectable should wear anyways not 2-1/2. there are plenty of places that sell cute 5in shorts with patterns. its not go9nna be the "in" brands but labels shouldn’t matter. check out old navy, jcp, and kohls. as far as leggings go THEY ARE NOT PANTS and you should not wear them as such.
