My daughter is four, and always make sure the skirts she wears has a built-in short, or else I stick a pair of bloomers or shorts over her underwear. I even have fancy bloomers for under party/formal dresses. A friend of mine commented that it's completely unnecessary because she's so young, and that it's no big deal if people see her underwear while she's playing. My take is she's (1) too young to be taught to sit/walk/move in a skirt so she does not flash her panties; and (2) people (especially those without children) are sometimes uncomfortable with seeing kids underwear flashed inadvertently and I don't want her to pick up on that and be self-conscious.
What's your take on this?
