    There's no other way than just to build up the courage and ask her.

    If you really don't want to ask her, you could try buying some yourself.

    Yeah I would buy myself anyway, its just I know she would see them in the washing and true I do need to but tbh I am scared but I do need to get the courage to just tell her.

    What is wrong with wearing boxers as a girl? I do not see any harm in doing it. They are even more protective than women knickers as it covers a lot more and talking from a guy's perspective, they are more comfortable.

    So you could tell your mom that they are way more beneficial. I do not know, it is just a suggestion.

    Well her seeing them in the washing might be easier. That way she would start the conversation about it (and not you), so it might be less awkward.

    Yeah as I think they are more comfortable and overall look better and true hopefully she will understand if I say why I want to wear them

    As a guy, I would prefer girls to wear boxers a lot more often. As you said, it looks a lot better on them!

    You could start making up excuses about how your underwear is uncomfortable, and then hint that you want boxers instead? She may even suggest it herself and then you wouldn't have to

    does mummy still dress you in the morning before school
    Super helpful... who cares if she does? OP might only have one arm for all we know. Don’t judge a book by its cover. And you can’t even judge by the cover if all you’ve seen is the blurb!

    What defines “weird”? How does your Mum usually react to LGBT topics?

    Whether it purely is for comfort, or whether there’s more you’ll want to discuss with her over time, I guarantee it’s always the first move that’s the hardest!

    She's okay with it but I bought a tie once and she said ties are usually for boys, she was okay with is tho, I just feel awkward telling her as I don't know how she would react and its for comfort and I like the look of them but tbh I don't want her to read more into it as I only want to wear them for comfort and the look, I don't her to think its anything more

    Thats true, but I could try that but unsure if she would even suggest boxers, she might just suggest those big knickers or something.

    even with one arm she can still dress her self
    if she is old enough and has enough mental capacity to ask such a question on here, then she is old enough to buy her own damn clothes and dress herself.
    Then perhaps a more polite comment could have been “Are you able to buy clothes yourself instead of asking your Mum?” rather than teasing. At least we got a suggestion out of you 😉

    Sometimes it’s easier to put feeling on paper instead of face to face. Maybe leave a note under her pillow or something? Explain how you feel and then she will most likely bring it up the next day.

    Just tell her girl ... My mother kept purchasing me knickers when I was young and when she got my first bra I told her mom I don't like your taste nomore so I would like to choose my own. From that moment until now I purchase my own lingerie. So i wear boxers, thongs etc but no more knickers:giggle:

    Buy them and tell her ‘look I bought boxers, aren’t they cute?’ Or smth like that. It’ll be much natural I think. I’d just text her though. Kinda feels weird to put it in paper. But that’s just me. I’d text her when she’s not at home or smth.

    My sister wears boxers. She usually doesn’t care what mum thinks. She’s been like that but I’m the opposite lol. So I understand... I think xD
