Is it bad to wear crop tops

Your Question

no one in my life has ever told me i dress too old for my age (im a thirteen year old girl) but whenever i go online, i see people saying that tween/teens are growing up too quickly. I’ve never felt like i dress for anyone else or to be “sexy” and im not interested in boys in any way. so, is it bad for me to wear crop tops or halter tops? i wear them for myself because im comfortable in my own body. 


Hi there. Welcome to Ask Alex.
It sounds like you’re very comfortable in the way you dress. You mention that no one has ever told you that you dress too old for your age, and you ask if it is bad for you to wear crop tops. It is always important to be comfortable in your own skin, and wearing crop tops does not have to mean you’re trying to impress boys or trying to be sexy. It simply means they are clothes that you like to dress in and feel good in. It sounds like your family and friends are also comfortable with how you dress and accept you for who you are.
Having trusted adults in your life to bounce things like this off can be very helpful, someone you have a good positive relationship with. They will want to help you through the different stages of life and the different phases you are going through. You never know, they may have gone through phases like this themselves.
