    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.

    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.

    1.) Buy really cheap ones, possibly even Aldi or Lidl will have cheap sets
    2.) For washing- Wash them in the sink/bath when both parents are out, just put a table spoon of washing powder or even shower gel/bubble bath in and scrub them and leave them to soak for a bit then just rinse with water, use ur hair dryer or even an iron to dry them (if u aren't able to use the drier) and leave them to dry in ur room 😊😊

    Thats true, but I could try that but unsure if she would even suggest boxers, she might just suggest those big knickers or something.
    Parents like to think they're understanding yet still shut you down at things like that, I understand. You could ask her if she thinks boxers could potentially be more comfortable for you to wear, as if you're suggesting it but not definite. I don't know, it is what I would do with my dad personally.

    You’ve no idea of personal circumstances, age or availability of money
    age is irrelevant to wearing boxers so that is useless
    money too, you need money to buy them, unless your assuming shes going to steal them from peoples washing lines, so again, irrelevant.

    You’re the one who said if she’s old enough to ask here she’s old enough to buy them
    You’ve no idea how old she is and if she has money
    And you’re right, everything you said is irrelevant

    when I was a kid I wanted to wear boxers because they provided more room for my package

    why would a girl want to wear boxers???

    OP is there something you're not telling us........

    In my opinion, I would just ask her and if you don't feel comfortable asking her, than the next time you go shopping get yourself a pair. When your referring to boxers are you meaning boxer shorts or boxer briefs? and are you thinking of wearing the silk or cotton ones? Even though I'm a guy, I would recommend the silk ones as they are the most comfortable ones to wear and I've worn silk boxers for years. Are you thinking of getting guy boxers or girl boxers?

    guy boxers and thanks for the advice, I told her the day I posted this and she didn't really mind as one of the reasons I wanted to wear them were because I started wearing these girl boxers from superdry but they were 13 pound each or 2 for 20 pound so I thought I mase well just get guy boxers as they are cheaper. My mum understood this as this way I can save money. I bought 3 pairs from primark the other day and wearing them now and they are so comfy and they just look good.

    No problem, are they boxer briefs or boxer shorts? I would highly go for the boxer shorts though

    Do you need to do it? Explicitly? You could just start buying boxers/telling her that you'd like boxers in the future instead, I doubt she'll object.

    yess!! im so happy for u <3 im a gender nonconforming female so i think i get where ur coming from - being feminine feels less comfy to me, and i exclusively wear sports bras, and want to get more boxers. proud of u for knowing what u want and going for it
