The other day I had a humbling experience. I took my young daughter for a Halloween costume and decided I should get one for myself. Except I’m a late 30s mom who fits into tween or teen costumes.
Sizing tends to be a pain in the butt, and I’m not exactly interested in all the costumes they offered. I asked the employee at the store if they had Disney princess costumes in tween or teen sizes.
His response? Looking at my daughter, he said, “We do, but they’re not exactly familyfriendly, if you know what I mean.”
There was a lady at the register who added, “He means the sexy costumes. You know, ‘Slutty Nurse’ or ‘Slutty Cinderella.'”
