Dressing little in public?

Do any of you dress little (or middle) in public?

 

There are so many cute outfits I am looking at and want, but I don’t know if I would feel comfortable wearing them in public. So- do you? If so, have you always, or did you have to build up confidence first?

Well, really for the most part, dressing little and dressing big aren't too different for me.  Some things just make me feel more little than big.  I have this one really colorful skirt and it makes me feel little.  Sometimes wearing tennis shoes (especially with mismatched funky socks, or my TARDIS or kitty socks) makes me feel little.

I guess for me it's less about LOOKING little and more like some things make me FEEL more little.

I think the trick that I used was to slowly intergrate certain aspects into my everyday look, starting small with a cute 'little' pair of earrings or maybe a small on trend choker things that aren't too obvious. Eventually the more you wear somethings they start to become part of you look and nobody will even question it.

I have the fear of "getting caught" wearing little girl stuff in public. So I try to incorporate stuff into my every day outfits. For me my little age is 2-3 so it's hard to dress like that in public. I love to wear super cute graphic tees that are Disney themed or kind of on the more "cutesy" side, such as a unicorn or something. I have always worn shirts like that so for me it won't look "out of character" to those around me, yet on the inside I feel really little and all cute.

I love dressing little in public! If its summer time I like wearing overall shorts with a onesie or a cute tshirt and colorful socks/shoes!

I agree with what Lola Step said. Cutesy girly things are always part of my life and my style.  People do notice, but they just think it's a quirky part of me. I'm 50 years old and have unicorn stickers on my phone case.  My friends just grin and say "Oh that is SO Laura".

I enjoy it, and it doesn't bother anyone. I would not, however, dress in full blown little/baby mode and go out in public. In my book, that's not fair play to other people.

I wear colorful bows in my hair every day to work, and usually my hair is in pig tails. On the days im off, i wear what i want to, everybody knows I'm "quirky" so nobody thinks twice about it.

Thanks again for your input!

 

I bought a unicorn dress, I love it, but I’m not 100% wearing it in public yet. I’ll have to get my confidence up first!

I am 46, and most of my friends who have known me forever, just think my pink things, and Disney Princesses' and stickers are just part of me. If they suspect they don't say anything, except for the few who do know that I have a little side.

Mostly my little is about 8, so it's easy to incorporate Disney t-shirts, skirts that make me feel little that no one really notices. Now I do make costumes for private play that I wouldn't likely wear out in public except maybe an adult Halloween party or to a class within the kink community.

I love wearing my Tykables gear out in public - anyone with an eye who knew what they were looking at would be able to call me out immediately, but those people are few and far between.

Mind, I'm a boy, even if I am only 2, and so my wardrobe is generally less obvious anyway.

 

I don't wear the cutesiest animal prints outside, though.

I like to incorporate accessories into my outfits. I often don’t dress entirely little, but I love knee high socks and bows. I have a bunch of fun and cute bows I wear since my hair has to be up a lot. And during the winter I wear crazy hats. It started out as emulating Runways’ Molly Hayes, but it’s become part of me. Everyone on campus knows the weird hat girl, but I don’t think it indicates my part in this community. Most of my friends don’t care or think it’s just quirky. And I’ve gotten lots of compliments on my hats. I think generally, people don’t automatically assume ‘little’ unless they are part of the community. And a lot of the time the excuse of “it’s fun” seems to work for others.

I've been thinking today and as most peoples concern is usually how they will be viewed by other people and getting 'caught out' i thought I'd come up with a list of possible excuses for dressing little:

*Say "It was a gift"

*Say your child/niece/cousin begged to pick out your outfit for the day

*Say you have a themed party to go to or say it's a special theme day at work

*Say you lost a bet with friends (low, i know, but if it gets them off your back...)

*Say you're cosplaying as a character and they've probably never heard of them

*Say you were half asleep this morning when you got dressed and accidentally grabbed something belonging to your little sister and you didn't realize until you left the house

*Say everything else was in the wash

*Say you spilled something on yourself and this was all a friend had on them to loan you.

Sorry if some of these sound silly, I was in a very big thinking creative mood :p

I'm finally about to buy my first kitty ears & tail. I live in the city, but I'm about to move to a small town. I hope to be able to wear my kitty ears & tail in public! Usually, it's easier for me to do that if at least one person around understands me. hehehe If everyone thinks I'm just weird, I think I'll still wear them in public! What might prevent me from wearing those things in public is if I hear too many meanie comments from people who know me..

I like to dress little in public but in a subtle way as I’m not totally confident to dress like it fully/completely.

Instead of wearing a bunch of bright colors or Disney themed clothes,

I’ll wear clothes with more neutral colors and plain clothes (no logos or patterns really) but the style of my outfits are still meant to help me slip into little space a bit without it being noticeable.

So an example,

Instead of wearing my rainbow skirt, bright blue sneakers, and my oversized white furry sweater,

I’ll put on a light grey skirt, royal blue heels, and a white blouse, with a cute little necklace and maybe stud earrings.

It’s the same kind of skirt just a different color, the blouse is still comfy, loose and flowy like a sweater, and the keels are still blue and my splash of color to my outfit.

It’s not a very little look but i still feel like it in it and it’s enough to make me comfortable to slip into little space while out in public.

Or maybe bright blue overalls with a plain shirt under it with my white converse.

The major factor for me dressing little in public is subtlety.

A tulle skirt, glitter, pastels, overalls, body shimmer, etc. 

 

I have no intention to publicly dress kinky or overtly "little" like I do at home. IMO it's the same as involving a someone in a kink without their consent.

I don't dress little in public. Although for me, I don't tend to dress little anyways unless it is requested of me. I am thinking of starting to slowly purchase items that I can incorporate into little time and big time that are multi functional.

 

edit: I just purchased a shirt that says "Good Girls Club".  :D

Haha I hadn’t hopped in the forum in a couple weeks!

 

It’s a Lesa frank unicorn dress. It’s got pictures of unicorns all over it, I think it’s cute. I will post a picture.
