Lol! Don’t feel bad, I’m 25 and gave up dressing at alot of the teen designer type stores. I do love areopostale stuff though, stupid cute, budget friendly and not “slutty”.

Just for kicks, I went to their website and clicked on the dress category. Good lord!!!!!!! There is literally no way that covers anything. At all. Looks like you can either cover the ladybits down below and free-boob it up top, of you can choose to cover up the girls and let the hooha out. I just don’t understand how a person wears this without indecent exposure…. And this is for young teenagers for chrissake!

I am 5’9″ with a long torso and I totally understand. Most dresses these days barely cover my lady bits.

You aren’t too old…but we are apparently too modest.

@MrsPaulsBabyBallerina:  I don’t think you’re too old for it… I think they’re just ridiculous! 😉

Lol I wear “tunics” as shirts all the time. Mostly to protect my hoo haa from seeing the world. You aren’t too old for anything!

I’m 4’10 so the trend of short short dresses actually suits me quite well, lol.

I was in American Eagle a few weeks ago and suddenly I thought, “Am I too old for this?” I’m 27 and I’ve seen much older people shopping there, but still… I do think I can pull some things off because I am a “young” 27 and look to be closer to 19 or 20, but at the same time sometimes I feel like I should not be in certain stores anymore Undecided

@MrsPaulsBabyBallerina:  I think the fact that you used the word ‘tunic’ probably set you back a few centuries in the salesguy’s eyes 

ETA: I don’t think that what you wanted to buy was inappropriately ‘young’ or anything. But you have to remember that A&F’s target market is probably 13-17.

I feel like that every time I go into American Eagle. I totally still shop there because they have cute underwear and every now and then they have cute tank tops for summer that are not plastered with branding….


They look at me like I must be shopping for my kids. I’m 27.

Think of it as a good thing. I generally stopped wearing A&F after middle school, anyway.

That’s a very good thing to be too old for, IMO.

Haven’t ventured into A&F myself since they started trying to sell clothes in the dark 🙂 That did give me a big laugh though.

Haha. The things kids wear nowadays! I also feel like I need to step away from these teen brands at the grand old age of 26, but A&F cardigans are always so nice and soft. Next year maybe!

OMG I’m so glad it’s not just me I’m 43 and when I go into those stores shopping for my kids  I feel like they’re looking at me like some old pervert!

@StephieBee:  +1. I don’t know many teenagers that would wear most of those as dresses either! 


Seriously, would any of you wear this as an actual dress rather than lingerie or something? Please say no. Please please please. Select the picture where the model is wearing it. That’s just wrong, lol.
