My Mom Is Literally Controlling The Way I Dress. HELP!

I Was Wearing I Cropped Shirt ( shirts in which half or your stomach shows) and she told me to put on a different shirt and to wear pants! like seriously she's never done anything like that and it's not the first time. she banned me from wearing Hollister short because according to her they are TOO SHORT. what should I do?

Im Not Looking Like A Slut, Why Did She Buy Me That Stuff In The First Place If She Doesn't Want me Wearing It
Report as
Yeah don't go dissing on her. If you look up the word s**t you will see that clothes don't define it
Report as
Your mom is smart. She doesn't want you pregnant. -_-

It could be worse listen to her in the long run she'll see you're matured & start trusting you even more doesn't mean you betray that trust though she's looking out for you not herself

Be glad she cares. I see lots of girls dressed like strippers and their mom doesn't seem to mind. And I'm not saying you looked like one. Js

Depends on your age. If you are 18, or live with her, you're s.o.l. But if you're 18 and don't live with her, do whatever you want

Kiss the ground you walk on that you have a mother who cares. Sure there are girls who can wear whatever they want, do whatever they want. When parents don't care or they abdicated their position as a parent that's what happens. Even though you think she's "controlling" you she is actually looking out for your best interest.
None of my daughters are allowed to leave the house dressed like that as well!

Be thankful she cares like everyone else has said. I wish my mom would have been like that. She was quite opposite though she dressed me in short little clothes and I hated it. To many perverts out there. It's a good thing she cares and is trying to protect you from things

Go give your mom a hug and tell her "thank you for caring about me". She wants you to grow up with some morals and value your reputation. Your mom is being what she is suppose to be.. Aka A MOTHER!

She Can Go Ahead And Be A Mom, All I'm Asking Her Is To Let Me Be. My Reputation Is Perfectly Perfect And Dressing Like Some Nerd Is Gonna Ruin It
Report as
Dressing like trash can ruin your reputation. Because she wants you to cover your belly and butt, doesn't mean it's nerdy. You live under her roof, respect your mom.
Report as
exactly, if you don't like the rules of the house then move out on ur own. respect yourself and your mother.

I've Been Able To Dress The Way I've Wanted To For My Whole Life. Why Stop Now? Daddy Told Me If I Want Something I Should Go After It. I Want To Dress Whichever Way I Want To And I'm Going After That
Report as
Sounds to me your dad needs to learn from your mom. My mother and father wouldn't have ever let me dress like a slut, but than again I had enough respect for myself not to. Did you read the comment about the teen mom. Listen to her.

Do you really want people to think it? Don't give them a reason. Dress and act proper.
Report as
So you admit it. You look like a slut. You obviously realize you do so you obviously know it's wrong.

Look. My mom does the same exact thing. My girl cousins (one is my age & the other is younger) are allowed to do whatever & wear whatever they want to. Guess which mom is respected? Guess which girl has had meaningful, lasting relationships & is treated with respect? The way you dress defines who you are. So, what do you think you're dressing like when you show your body like that? You know Exactly what I'm talking about.
Listen to your mother. She loves you & is trying to protect you.
PS Showing your butt & boobs only makes you look desperate, not cool.

She's probably done this since your birth and will probably stop at your 18th birthday, then you wont have to hear it at all for the next 65 years or so. She's doing what comes natural it's kind of hard to correct that !
