Not To Be All JUDGY But Ariel Winter Needs To Put A Sweater On At The SAG Awards

Live from the carpet in my living room, it’s Eve Vawter bringing you the 19th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards! I am wearing leggings with no holes in them and a sweatshirt that I may or may not have spilled tequila on!  So, you guys know I am totally against slut-shaming girls for what they wear but I’m also all about young ladies dressing appropriately for their age and I’m sorry, but I am all sorts of hand-wringy over this:

20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Red Carpet

 

Don’t get me wrong. Ariel Winter is a lovely girl. But that’s the thing, she is a GIRL, a 15-year-old girl and this Badgley Mishchka dress is a leeeetle too revealing for a girl this age, at least as far as I’m concerned.

I can’t be the only one who finds this a little bit too revealing right? I know it’s a big Hollywood awards show and all that but come on. Let’s compare this to Keisha Castle-Hughes who was nominated for Whale Rider when she was 13-years-old:

10th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Arrivals

 

I’m all for beautiful women wearing beautiful gowns that accentuate all their beautiful attributes, but as a mom I would not let my daughter at age 15 leave the house wearing a dress that showed.. so much. And she must be wearing some sort of hardcore push-up bra right?

Won’t someone think of the children?

I know I sound like a cranky old lady about this but I really want to put a pashmina on her, mainly because the idea of her being surrounded by old dudes who will be creeping on her lady parts is all sorts of freaking me out.

      it’s the bra not the dress. Parents should tell her stylist to stop giving her bras that act like a corset.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        I think you are correct they are hoed way on up tharrrr

      • Katie L.

        I think Ariel’s parents are part of the problem. If memory serves her mom is a pretty terrible person. But you’re right, it’s the bra. The dress is cute.

    • Mel

      Agree that the dress is entirely too revealing for a 15 year old child! And, Eve, I didn’t know you had leggings without holes in them? I’m so jealous and impressed :) Pass the tequila, lady!

    • http://wtfihaveakid.blogspot.ca/ jendra_berri

      I think the fact she is very well endowed is what we’re all seeing. On a smaller chested girl, the dress would be quite age appropriate. I feel for ladies with big breasts. While they seem like fun to have, they draw a lot of attention.
      I can wear the sexy costumes all the time and I always look cute and not sexy… because no boobs.
      A different bra would make all the difference. She doesn’t need anything to create cleavage.

      • JAN

        This. I am quite well endowed and outfits that look completely appropriate on my more average sized sister, tend to look pornographic on me.

      • Kay_Sue

        This is me and my sister. I’m the tiny chested one, she’s the DD, and things that would look perfectly okay on me look…very revealing on her. Very. #JealousIAm

      • pixie

        There are days where I wish I inherited my mother’s chest (a C-cup), being large-chested isn’t always a blessing. ;)
        The only way I can borrow tops from her is if they’re already a bigger fit on her.

        (seriously, people look at my mom and me and wonder where I got my boobs from…I’m pretty sure it was my dad’s side of the family)

      • Buffy

        I couldn’t agree more! Damn, my breasts hurt in sympathy just looking at this pic.

      • Peggy

        Agree 100%. A dress that looks nice on most ladies makes me look all Elvira thanks to my large gams. Her dress actually reminds me of something that I would have chosen for prom or homecoming (back in the day…), with the pattern, detail and flowing fabric.

      • Megan Zander

        My first thought when I saw her was HOLY BOOBIES BATMAN, but I totally get it. I had a huge rack at her age and I was always getting told by teachers to put a sweater over my tank tops because it was too revealing while I would point out the flat chested girls all around me wearing way skimpier tops and getting away with it. Also, she’s 15 and for better or for worse, she’s finding her sexuality and the impact her body has on those around her. I’ve been there. Plus, I’ve read that some of her issues with her mother were around her mom wanting her to diet more. Look at how confident she looks in this photo! I say rock it, and I’m sure she has a team that will make no one paws at her.

      • Byron

        A pretty girl is gonna be a pretty girl even with layers on. Hell, sometimes more is better in that you have to use your imagination more which is something that makes things more interesting. I think this dress looks more “extravagant” than anything really. Yes the cleavage is prominent but the rest of the outfit isn’t quite as revealing. I’d say it strikes a balance between classy and sexy.

        Now, if you wanna say 15 is too young for sexy..well…again…this girl can wear silver plate armor and hold a big sword and she’d still be sexy. It’s not the outfit, it’s the girl. Can’t do much when nature made her as she is and denying it comes off as paranoid or jealous.

        I get the writer’s issue with putting her own child in this girls shoes and wincing but in the end, don’t we always hear that when something happens to a woman it’s not because of the mini-skirt? Well, the same applies not only to sexual assault but also for people seeing you and having sexual thoughts or being attracted to you. It’s not about what you have on, it’s about the peopel finding you appealing and there’s no way of dressing which would prevent that from happening.

      • Gangle

        My breasts create their own cleavage, no support needed. I have a really slender waist and really big boobs. So many dresses that fit perfectly at the waist and hip are obscenely tight at the bust, and often dresses that are a perfect fit at the bust are much too big at the waist and hips. A dress like this just wouldn’t be my bag, because by breasts would spend the entire night trying to escape out the top, bra or not. It is my blessing and my curse.

      • Mel

        I have to admit, I’m so jealous of your figure with the slender waist and big boobs, I almost downvoted you even though I agree. Sorry! I have big boobs, but I have the big waist and big legs to go with it. The only things slender on me are my wrists and ankles. Regardless, I think this dress is completely age inappropriate.

      • CMJ

        I think the fit is, not necessarily the dress, if that makes sense…

      • Mel

        Yeah, I think you’re right. The dress is fine, it just doesn’t necessarily look good/appropriate for her body type and age.

      • CMJ

        You know, her age doesn’t even bother me…I just really have a problem with that neckline and large boobs (Personally, I could NEVER wear that dress…I mean, I don’t even know where my boobs would go). I think, regardless of age, that dress would not look good on someone with boobs of a certain size.

      • Mel

        I agree that the style isn’t great for people with big boobs in general, but her age still bothers me in addition to that. Just a difference of opinion.

      • Gangle

        I am pretty ok with how I look, but sometimes I wish that either I had a smaller bust size or a more proportionate ratio of features, but only because sometimes it frustrates me getting outfits that work on me. I’m not really curvy, and at the same time all the awesome outfits for petite girls aren’t a go either. It is annoying because lots of fun outfits that either my petite or more proportionately curved friends can wear often look pornographic on me.

      • pixie

        I must have a similar shape to you. I have large breasts, but a very small ribcage and otherwise slender features. I’ve learned to live with it and even come to love my breasts. But at the same time, there’s a LOT of things that I would love to wear that I just don’t feel comfortable in or don’t fit me properly. For example, I have yet to find a corset that fits me properly (I know corsets are supposed to push up the boobs and give a certain look, but my boobs look like Ariel Winter’s whenever I try on a corset, whereas my smaller chested/more proportionate friends don’t have that problem)

      • Gangle

        Yep. I have a dress affectionately known as SlutDress. I bought SlutDress online, and didn’t realise that the keyhole cutout was in quite the position it is in. So regardless of the boob gear (or lack there of) my breasts spend an awful lot of time squeezing out of the keyhole when I wear it. Needless to say, my husband LOVES SlutDress, although I feel too uncomfortable wearing it in public with him because I feel like he hired me from an escort agency. But, if I ever want to get him in the mood, no matter how tired or stressed about work he is, I just put on SlutDress. About 5 minutes later SlutDress is abandoned on the floor. Poor SlutDress.

      • pixie

        I have one or two items of clothing that are similar to your SlutDress. Would never wear them in public, but they do wonders with my boyfriend and quickly become abandoned on the floor.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        we all have a slut dress. I think I have 3.

      • Gangle

        Slut dresses are the lazy girls foreplay ;)

      • http://wtfihaveakid.blogspot.ca/ jendra_berri

        Not me :( No joke, everything just looks cute. I’m 5’2″, no boobs, no hourglass shape and I have a baby face. Half a dozen people so far have mistaken me for a teen mom.
        And the people who think I look like a teen aren’t thinking jailbait teen. They’re thinking the sort of teen you’d want to babysit your kids.
        My kingdom for a day of looking HOT! If there is a slutty dress out there for me, I want it.

      • anon

        You can wear anything exceptionally tight – with a padded bra (Aerie and VS sell ones promised to add two cup sizes), My daughter tried on a couple of those next to lycra dresses with said bras for HS stuff – and mom said NOPE

      • Gangle

        There is a slut dress out there for everyone. The less fabric, or the more flimsy the better (NB, the slut dress is different from the ‘tarting frock’. Slut dresses are generally for private viewings, where as the tarting frock is what you wear out to bring all the boys to the yard).
        You need at least on slut dress and one tarting frock in your life.

      • Momma425

        Yeah, this is called a 15 year old girl with boobies. I had the same problem when I was a teenager- everything in the adult section looks too “old lady” and everything in the juniors department was completely inappropriately BOOBIES EVERYWHERE and there was nothing really in the middle.
        I feel for her, because unless she wears a turtleneck, she’s pretty much guaranteed to look inappropriate.

      • Aldonza

        When I was 15, I couldn’t wear a tank top without cleavage. I still can’t. When you have big boobs, there’s not a whole lot you can do because most clothes are not designed to take bigger boobs into account. Now, I wear camisoles under everything (which is a pain in the ASS in the summer) but it’s the only way to not be flashing hardcore cleavage all the time, or wearing clothes waaaay too big.

      • Jules

        Besides a better bra, her stylist or whatever designer who dressed her could have altered this dress (that is really beautiful actually) any which way until it fit her like a glove. I don’t understand why this didn’t happen!

      • jsing014

        This picture of her is pretty close to what every picture of me in highschool looked like, and I can tell you exactly what happened: She chose a dress, tried on a smaller size and a larger size, and found out that the larger size looked like she was wearing a potato sack so she chose the smaller. Her mom is known to be a terrible person, so there may have been no one to explain to her about alterations (just like no one explained to me). There might also have been an element of body-shame, where she really really didn’t want to choose the larger size (happened to me a lot: size 6 waist with size 12 tatas), and as a teenage girl chances are that she hates her body. Also, surprised no one brought this up already, but Badgley Mishka doesn’t exactly make plus sizes; she might not have had much of a choice. She isn’t really famous enough to warrant a specially-made dress.

      • Athena A

        I know how you feel, a sad A cup here too. I really hope when I get pregnant I will finally get to know what it feels like to have a nice rack! I’ll be wearing a lot of cleavage outfits then that’s for sure.
        High five for small boobs!

    • loser_sneeze

      That looks super uncomfortable. The dress is fine but that bra or whatever happens to be pushing her breasts up is awful. I’ve never understood the need to have your breasts up to your chin.

      • brebay

        If it looks uncomfortable to you, don’t wear it.

    • Natasha B

      She is gorgeous! Her dress is gorgeous! But yes, a different bra.

    • Justme

      I don’t think that pushed up, over flowing breast look looks good on anyone, regardless of age. Admittedly, I am barely a B cup so I don’t really understand a big bosomed girl’s hardships, but I think that everyone can dress to accentuate their shape – and this dress doesn’t do that.

      • CMJ

        3Ds here and I agree. That looks painful. It’s not about the cleavage to me….the dress doesn’t fit her.

      • pixie

        30/32G Here and I agree, that dress is too small in the chest for her.

      • CMJ

        If it was a v-neck? Totally different story I think….the straight across the chest neckline has NEVER worked for me.

      • Bunny Lucia

        The straight across never works for girls with bigger breasts, but that’s the most common neckline for dresses these days, I’m amazed they actually are trying to escape, I think that dress may be a size too small, mine are usually shoved down and I look like a normal girl for a night. Super uncomfortable though

      • pixie

        I try to go for more vintage/50s-inspired dresses that don’t have the straight across necklines. They’re hard to find, but I don’t feel like my boobs are all smushed.

      • CMJ

        She could also have a longer torso? I’ve also noticed those dresses tend to have the shortest torso length…

    • EmmaFromÉire

      She could give Christina Hendricks a run for her money.

      • Jallun-Keatres

        LOOOOL this!!

        When I saw the pic all I could think of was “man my tits are that big right now” being 7 weeks postpartum and all. I compare my holy swollen mammaries to Christina Hendricks’ massive rack all the time.

      • CW

        Christina Hendricks is in her 30′s, not a teenager. BIG difference!

    • Ashlea Phenicie

      Oh, I’m sorry. Did you suddenly become her mother? No? Than yeah, you are totally out of bounds to tell her to cover up. Everyone has different decency standards, and as long as she’s not being pushed into anything she’s not comfortable or breaking any laws, it is literally NONE OF YAH DAMN BUSINESS. In fact, she probably didn’t pick that dress out with the intention of being “sexy.” It doesn’t event have sweetheart or vneck cut. She just has large breasts and YOU’RE the one that sexualizing her.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        Isn’t her mom like some crazy drug addict lady? still no

      • Megan Zander

        Anyone else want to pull their hoodie over their head , hide in the corner and rock when someone replies to Eve in all caps ?

    • 11candlelight

      You can’t say you’re opposed to slut-shaming and then slut shame in the next breath. And don’t you think a 15 year old would be MORTIFIED to think people were commenting on her breasts? I know (being over-endowed myself) I certainly was at that age.

      Yes, from last season to this season she “developed” quite a bit. On Modern Family she looks a bit embarrassed by it– seeming to hunch over, cross her arms in front of her. In this picture she looks radiant and confident. So quit with the slut-shaming already.

      • Cabbie

        Can we take a second to define the term ‘slut-shaming’? Because I’m pretty sure this is not what that is. Can people not comment on anything anymore without there being a ‘shaming’ element? That whole term is getting way over-used. If anyone should be shamed in this instance it should be whatever stylist thought it was a good idea to put her in a dress that is unflattering to her body type.

      • 11candlelight

        Here’s a hint– If you tell someone to cover up some body part that would be fine to be uncovered if that body part wasn’t viewed as “sexual”– THAT is slut shaming. Would this article be written because Ariel was showing too much ankle or elbow?

      • Cabbie

        Eh, I disagree. It isn’t an all-encompassing term that means whatever you want it to mean. The tone of this article isn’t “Wow, what a slut-faced ho-bag”, it’s more like a concerned mother. Or…”mommy-ish”, if you will.

      • Cabbie

        And to answer your question, well, yes, if the outfit looked like it were cutting off blood circulation to her ankles or elbows or making them stick out at uncomfortable-looking angles, then yeah, maybe, probably.

        There are ways to show off the girls without making them look like they’re in a vice. This girl’s got money, she can pay someone to style her in flattering clothes she can breathe in.

      • missiemeghan

        Ok, let’s call it shaming.

      • Cabbie

        And those fashion police shows and worst-dressed lists? I guess those are all shaming too. Got it.

      • missiemeghan

        That depends, do they sit around discussing the breasts of 15 year old girls? Then yes, I guess they are shaming. There is a difference between “god that dress is ugly” and ogling a 15 year old girl and making her feel like a freak for a growth spurt that she hasn’t figured out how to dress for yet.

      • Cabbie

        I’d agree with you if we were discussing any average 15-year-old girl, not one who’s mega-rich with stylists and designers at her disposal. I think she’s gorgeous, I think the dress is cute, but I don’t think it suits her. If she likes her chest all smooshed up like that, fine, but speaking as a big-chested girl myself, it looks totally uncomfortable. There are styles available that would actually show more boobage and STILL look more appropriate than that one.

      • Jessica

        “don’t you think a 15 year old would be MORTIFIED to think people were commenting on her breasts?”

        This is why I would want my 15 year old daughter to wear a sweater with this dress. For me it wouldn’t be about shaming her body or wanting her to suppress any sexual freedom. It’s more teaching her how to find clothes that fit her body & help build confidence in dressing her body.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        I think there is also a HUGE difference about how moms of daughters have this conversation versus childfree people and moms of sons, which I wrote a big ass article about for tomorrow

      • Katie L.

        I’m looking forward to reading that. I just had a Facebook friend post that open letter from the mom who went on a rant about all the sexy pictures on her son’s fb page. She had a sanctimonious “food for thought for all you moms with daughters” line and I want to send her a nice counterpoint.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        Did you read Koa’s takedown of that here ? It is awesome

      • EmmaFromÉire

        So it’s the fault of other people that her son likes looking at sexy pictures? What a numpty.

      • Ashlea Phenicie

        Who Is to say that she is not confident in this? And could everyone stop projecting their thoughts about their own daughters on to her because she’s not you’re daughter! How would you feel if someone even more conservative than you started telling your daughter that she needs to cover up? I’m guessing you wouldnt be a big fan of that because it’s NOT their place.

      • tubesfilledwithcats

        A 15-year-old who is mortified about people commenting on her body would probably not attend a high-profile event in an outfit that fits like that.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        “You can’t say your opposed to slut-shaming and then slut shame in the next breath.”

        Here is the ONLY truth I know in regard to this:

        I am 1000000% OK with any woman/girl of any age wearing whatever she wants to at any time no matter where she is.

        This entire worldview of mine gets completely tossed out the window when I think of my own nine-year-old who will one day be 15.

        It’s a totally quandary how I feel about allll of this.

      • Ashlea Phenicie

        But are not her mother. How would you feel if someone that was much more conservative than yourself started commenting on how your daughter needs to cover up more? I’m guessing you wouldn’t like that, because that’s NOT their place.

    • Muggle

      Oh shit, she’s only 15?! I saw this on the Gloss and had no clue she was that young. I feel kinda gross for commenting on a teenager’s breasts now :/

      I don’t think it would be nearly so bad, though, if the dress fit her up at the top. She’s clearly too big for it, and I’m sure that whatever she’s wearing underneath isn’t helping.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        yeah that is why it bugs me, she is 15. it’s not cool

    • Haradanohime

      What makes this worse…it’s not even a strapless. Her hair hides the straps. So the pushed up bust is totally inappropriate and unnecessary (as some strapless use the bust to hold said dress in place). Had you not said it I never would have thought she was 15!

      • Gracie287

        The straps are irrelevant. Her boobs are pushed up b/c she bought the wrong dress size, I’m assuming out of inexperience with dressing her new size/shape. As others have commented above, when you have breasts that are much larger than your waist and hips, you have to buy a dress a size or 2 too big for the rest of your body that fits your chest and have it taken in everywhere else. But most of us, as inexperienced teenagers, buy the dress that fits 90% of our body and hope that no one will notice that it’s way too tight in the chest area. If you make that mistake, as I and many others have as well-endowed teens, the tight neckline will push up your boobs regardless of whether it’s strapless or long sleeved. It’s a rookie mistake, and as someone who’s been there, I can only imagine how mortified she must be to have people picking her apart.

      • 11candlelight

        Yes, this is the right answer. The dress should have been sized to the largest part of her body, and then taken in for the optimal fit.

    • brebay

      If we’re comparing Keisha to Ariel, let’s also compare the fact that Keisha was knocked-up at 17, flat-chested or not. Ariel has bog boobs, that doesn’t mean she can’t wear a style any other teen would wear. She looks great, a big bosom isn’t pornographic or shameful,

      • chickadee

        But Eve was not linking sexual behavior to dress choice, so this comparison isn’t relevant. Had she said something along the lines of ‘bet we hear she has a baby/sti in the next year or so because thus deeds is a clear invitation’ then the Keisha comparison would be apt.

      • brebay

        If dress and behavior aren’t linked, why bring up dress at all? It’s completely apt. If dress didn’t influence people’s opinions about behavior, either the wearer’s or the bystander’s, we wouldn’t even be discussing it.

      • chickadee

        Because it makes the girl look like she doesn’t know how to dress herself. No one objects to teenaged cleavage, but this is the result of a poor fit. Showing off your figure is fine at 15, 25, 35, 45, 55+ But do it in a properly-fitting dress. And there is a distinction between thinking a style is perhaps not a great choice for a this teenager and implying that she is a slut.

    • Lucille two

      I don’t think its appropriate to publicly critique a 15 year old for a fashion choice..

    • brebay

      Yeah, old Hollywood dudes don’t creep on teenage girls unless they have huge boobs…

    • CMJ

      Ow. Just Ow.

      She needs to go up to a size that fits her chest and then alter the rest down to fit the rest of her.

    • brebay

      Would you expect a teen with long, gorgeous legs to wear a longer skirt than one with cankles? One with a tiny waist to wear an A-line dress to camouflage? It’s fine to accentuate physical traits that make you feel beautiful. She’s safer at the SAGs than she would be at a high school prom, I doubt she’ll be unsupervised. Why is it okay to love your legs and show them off but boobs=sex.

      • Mel

        I kind of don’t like the assumption that she needs to be “supervised” and I’m not sure what that has to do with the propriety of her choice of dress. I would feel the same if she was showing a whole lot of leg at her age. Of course I don’t condone body shaming, but I don’t think that’s the idea here. I think adults can flaunt whatever they want, but young people should be expected to be treated differently.

      • brebay

        I think a teenager at an adult event with after-parties, alcohol, and paparazri needs supervision, boy or girl.

      • Mel

        That’s fair. I think it was the comparison to the prom that threw me off.

      • Justme

        Yes. I would expect my daughter with long, gorgeous legs to be aware of her body and how to dress appropriately for it. My legs are three feet long and there are tons of dresses, skirts and shorts that look perfectly acceptable on someone who is 5’6 but are absolutely inappropriate for me at 6’0. Granted, I am a fairly modest person, but I don’t feel “shamed” when I have to be cognizant of my body type, but it’s just being aware of how you’re built and what looks appropriate at certain times. The truth of the matter is, my daughter probably won’t ever get to wear skirts and shorts to school because they will all be just a little too short to get by the dress code police. And that’s not called “shaming” it’s called following the rules.

      I don’t disagree with you but I think it’s inappropriate and unkind to make this sort of comment about a child in a public forum. Eve, in general I think you are lovely and badass, but I don’t love this article.

    • Kay_Sue

      It looks painful to me, honestly. I don’t care about the modesty aspect, per se, I just know that my (albeit much tinier) breasts would be hurting to be that high up.

      • Megan Zander

        I’ve rocked this look ( holloween, valentines day, low self esteem periods in college) and it doesn’t hurt per se it’s more that when you look down you feel like you may be smothered. It can actually be comfy because you’re in so tight you know nothings going to accidentally pop out and say hey!

      • Kay_Sue

        I hate being restricted up top, so I guess that’s why it looks painful to me. It’s one reason I don’t personally enjoy wearing strapless outfits.

      • CMJ

        Oh god, I ordered a sports bra that was too small last week and I tried it on and thought I was dying.

        Props to you.

      • Megan Zander

        Ugh sports bras are the worst! I was wearing one at the dr not too long ago and when she listened to my chest she thought she heard a heart murmur, then she had me undo the bra and sure enough, it was the bra being too tight. This is the price I am willing to pay to control my Ta- Tas.

        Your bra caused a heart murmur!!!! Haha.

      • pixie

        My sports bras fit me properly, but even at times they feel really tight. But at least I know I won’t be smacked in the face if I attempt to run or jump…
        They really do have a mind of their own if they’re not properly strapped in.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        You know what the worst danger bra™ is? Those spanx ones that sorta looks like a sports bra/small pice of pantyhose combo. Getting those off with no claps will throw your shoulder out

      • Megan Zander

        But they are so comfy for sleeping in

    • pixie

      Looking at her, I would have to guess she has a similar bra size as I do. I’m a 30/32G (depending on the bra). She might have a larger rib-size than I do, it’s hard to tell in pictures, and definitely is more proportionate hip-wise, but the biggest issue is that the dress doesn’t fit her well. I can’t count the number of times I have tried on a top or dress that I absolutely loved and have had a similar outcome (when on myself I call it the “Tits McGee” look). I think the only time I’ve gone out with that sort of cleavage is when I was already a little inebriated, since otherwise I am definitely not confident enough.

      That being said, while I’m agree with you, Eve, she probably shouldn’t be wearing that dress with that much cleavage at 15 years old, and in no way am I even assuming she’s inebriated, her age could have something to do with why she’s wearing that dress. She’s still young and probably still discovering her style. She might not realize how much cleavage is showing or that the dress doesn’t fit her chest properly. There are definitely things that I wore at 15 that now I look at pictures and wonder why I went out of my house like that.

      Though I must say, at least her dress does have straps (mostly hidden by her hair), which would at least negate any possible slippage.

    • Paladina

      I don’t think her girls are getting hoisted too much. Have you watch Modern Family recently? The girl is BUSTY. They try to minimize it with her wardrobe on the show but she’s very well-endowed.

      • Sara610

        Yeah, at the beginning of this season when both the Alex and Luke
        characters came on, it was like, “Holy puberty, Batman!” She developed
        really quickly and I tend to agree–when you’re built like that, there’s
        not a whole lot you can wear that’s NOT going to accentuate the girls. I still don’t think the dress fits her on the top, but even if it showed less, there’s no hiding how well-endowed she is.

    • Amber Stacey Larsson

      Sorry but you’re totally slut-shaming. Knock it off. On another note, Keisha Castle-Hughes went on to get pregnant at 16, so I’m not sure she should be your poster girl for what’s “age-appropriate”. This is not to put down miss Castle-Hughes, but all it shows is that the correlation between dress and so-called “moral” behaviour is a weak one.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        There its a HUGE HUGE difference.

        Let’s’ break it down here. Wait, someone gimmie a beat.

        1: Ariel Winter’s dress is a HUGE difference between a teen having a baby. A dress is a dress, it is not a human.

        2: Ariel Winter has PEOPLES! She has people who help her choose outfits and stylists and a manager and all that shiz. I am sure someone also gave their two cents in what she was wearing. If Keisha had input on having a baby or not, that’s her biz, it’s not like a dress is as important as a baby, they are two way different topics.

        3: I do not care if Ariel winter is sexing it up all sexy style with a mess of people she loves and is happy and safe and consensual.

        4: It does creep me out that she is 15 and she probably had someone like Jack Nicholson drooling all over her boobs.

        5: The hyper sexualization of girl in the 18 and under set does creep me out, because I think Hollywood sets this ridic and awful standard for women where they must be seen as SEXY at all times, and IDK, 15 is young, I don’t care what anyone says.

        6: ALSO, it’s not like she was going to prom, amongst her peers, she is a fancy Hollywood person with people looking out for her and as a mom of a daughter, IDK, I would be creeped if my 15 year old were that exposed in a room full of adults.

        OK, I do not think this is going to be my next rap single :(

      • Amber Stacey Larsson

        I’m not saying they are the same thing, I’m saying that pointing out one teenager’s state of dress and saying it’s “wrong” while pointing out anothers as “right” is a completely judgey and stupid thing to do, and that the way a teenage girl dresses is not any indicator of her sexual behaviour. Ariel Winter just wore a booby dress, it’s everyone else who has put that sexual label on it. If anyone reacted inappropriately to her dressing that way, like hitting on them or “drooling over” her that’s on them, not on her.

      • CW

        Ms. Castle-Hughes should be applauded for keeping her baby when I’m sure there was tremendous pressure on her to have an abortion. No, I’m not condoning her having sex as a teen, but we need to stop shaming young women who do the right thing in the face of an unplanned pregnancy.

      • Justme

        The “right thing” to do in the face of an unplanned pregnancy is extremely debatable.

      • CW

        It is a sad commentary on our society that there is even a debate about the morality of murdering an unborn baby. We could debate whether adoption vs. raising the baby herself is the right thing to do, but abortion is NEVER the right answer.

      • Justme

        I know this is a futile effort but…abortion is never the right answer….FOR YOU.

    • koolchicken

      I think the dress is fine, she just has huge boobs. Should she have picked something different? Probably. But she is a teenager and they’re not known for making the best decisions where clothes are concerned. You would think someone would steer her towards something a bit more demure but this is hollywood not bible camp. It’s funny, my husband kept saying “Woah, she gained a TON of weight” and tried to tell him. She’d just filled out early and they were trying to hide it but it was making her look heavy, not curvy.

    • VA Teacher

      “not to be all judgy but…” kind of falls into the category of “I’m not being racist but…”, ya know? If you’re gonna judge, judge. But own it.

    • meteor_echo

      Umm, Ariel Winter has a big bosom. It’d have looked “inappropriate” even in a potato sack because it’s so big. It’s a nice dress, I like it, why would anyone care what she’s wearing as long as it’s not see-through and she doesn’t have underwear.

      • Gangle

        I agree. I don’t really see the dress as ‘inappropriate’. I think the only issue I have with the dress is that it is too small/ill fitting and I feel that if the dress was fitted better it would be more flattering. But looking at some of the crazy fashions that were on the red carpet, this was hardly the worst of them.

      • meteor_echo

        Exactly. If the dress were a size bigger, I bet nobody would really be outraged about it.

      • KarenMS

        Well, to be fair, I think that’s the point. If it were a size bigger, we wouldn’t be looking at a child’s half naked chest spilling over her dress. It would be showing much less underage skin.

      • meteor_echo

        Apparently the second point is – if she had a smaller cup size, nobody would bat an eye if she wore a skimpy, tight dress. Stop starting at and criticizing a 15-year-old’s bosom.

    • Sara610

      I don’t think slut-shaming is really the appropriate term for pointing out that this dress just doesn’t fit her. It’s a gorgeous dress and she looks beautiful, but it’s too small on top. That’s all.

      I would be uncomfortable with my 15-year-old leaving the house with that much of her chest showing, but I also don’t think acknowledging that is slut-shaming.

    • Jules

      Can we stop using the non word “judgy”? When we’re being JUDGMENTAL, we should own it as what it actually is instead of making it sound cute.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

    • jesackerman

      This post and the ensuing comments are completely inappropriate, and I am disappointed in mommyish for publishing it and promoting a criticism and discussion about a fifteen year old’s breasts. Actress or not, the body and style choices of a teenage girl should never be up for discussing unless you are that child’s parent. It is especially disappointing, because I usually see Mommyish as a place where women support and defend each other and this is the opposite of that. Please end this and take this post down. It’s the right thing to do.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        1: a 15 far old is not a woman and
        2: Mommyish is a place where women can discuss all things that affect women and their daughters.

        There are a gazillion women out there who consider themselves feminist who also cringe at the sexualization of young teen girls. I’m just the only one brave enough to talk about it.

        I need to stop talking because I’m just gonna rewrite my article here that I wrote for tomorrow.
        3: UGH I want lemon pancakes

      • jesackerman

        1. Exactly. You could have brought up the discussion of what parents think about appropriate dress choices for their well-endowed girls without offering up an actual teenager as an example and without using the term “slut-shaming”.
        2. I think you need to reconsider your definition of feminist if you seriously believe there are a “gazillion” feminists out their who would even consider a fifteen year old girl showing a normal part of her actual body as an example of sexualization. Let me tell you, this is a big no. You are not brave, you are just looking for page views. You decided that Ariel’s style.of dress was sexual and judged and “slut-shamed” her for it. This is not feminism, even if you later decide to wrap it under the guise of “but, I’m just looking out for the children”
        3. Pancakes are delicious. My daughter is obsessed with them right now. I’m not sure what thwy have to do with this serious discussion. A word of advice, if you want to be taken seriously as someone having “brave discussions in the name of a gazillion feminists” you should keep the supurfulous breakfast food talk for another post.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        So ok pancakes? :(

    • missiemeghan

      Hate to break it to you, but you are being incredibly ‘judgy’ (which by the way, is not a word). When I was a young woman trying to figure out my new bosom, people like you passing judgment gave me such a complex, I covered myself in a protective layer of fat so no one would ever look at me. I want to thank you for making a lovely young girl feel like crap and reducing her to her body parts, you feminist you.

    • chickadee

      Yes, Eve is judging. And I think that the real Target of that judging shakes out to be whichever adult chisel or gave the green light to this dress. The girl is lovely, but the dress does not fit. Another commenter noted that she ought to have gotten the dress to fit her bust and then altered it to fit everywhere else. And someone should have done that.

      Commenting on a possibly inappropriate dress choice is not automatically slut-shaking….Eve didn’t say it made her look like she was a tramp, slut, or any other word that links dress choice to sexual behavior. I have two daughters, and I consider it to be an inappropriate choice because it is too small for her chest.

      • http://Mommyish.com/ Eve Vawter

        Yeah I’m judging and I hate doing it but I really wanna have these discussions because they are important to me

        It may have fit better when she got it, mine aren’t small and they still firm up and enlarge occasionally during some months.

    • CW

      It’s a pretty dress that is about 2 sizes too small for her (hence the “spillover”). I get being a teen and being obsessed with having a certain number be on my clothes, but her stylist should’ve taken out the tags and given her the size she needs.

    • http://twitter.com/mariaguido Maria Guido

      I don’t read “slut-shaming” here at all. I read a mother with teenage children being uncomfortable seeing a young girl hyper-sexualized at an awards show.

      The E! front page for this article reads: HOLY CLEAVAGE! Ariel’s Cleavage is out of Control!

      Then it basically goes on say she is giving SOFIA VERGARA a run for her money in the cleavage department. Ugh, just ugh.

      • CMJ

        I think it’s an important discussion to have. And for the record, I think the E! article is 100 times worse than thinking that dress is revealing for a young teen….

    • Vicki Lewis

      I just want to say I don’t think its fair to compare this girl who clearly has a voluptuous-for-15-years-old body to the skinnier and smaller breasted 13 year old girl . Also to me it depends on the girls motivation in wearing skimpy clothes. I personally developed early and went through a phase of wearing very short skirts and cleavage baring shirts when I was younger than 15. Looking back I do sort of cringe at what I wore but I am glad my mother did not stop me because it was my way of exploring my body and developing self-confidence. I honestly wasn’t wearing those things to get attention or impress boys and I think my mother knew that so she let me do it. That is the difference for me,

    • jsterling93

      The problem is with whoever helped her get dressed. Take a look at some of the other dresses from last night. Apparently there are some really shitty stylist out there right now. Ariel has gained some weight and her boobs have come in. Totally normal for her age. The dress is pretty and if it was 1 size up and with the right bra this would have looked better. But whoever helped her get dressed failed to make sure these things were taken care of and at 15 she doesn’t know that much better.

      At 15 I had that body and I would have worn that dress just like that unless someone else told me it was fitting right. Depending on who she has with her there may or may not have been someone willing to tell her it doesn’t fit.

    • jsterling93

      Actually she should have switched dresses with Sarah Paulson whose dress looked like it was made for a little girl not a 40 something year old woman.

    • Cement Block

      Oh please, she just needs to become anorexic and lose about 84 lbs. first!!!

    • nikki753

      It’s a really pretty dress but the bottom line for any female at any age is that that dress doesn’t fit correctly. The end. I’m not hip on Ariel and any changes in her body but that just looks uncomfortable and is not pretty. Someone should have had her try it on again a week before the show and they should have let out the top.

    • sirlicksalot

      She looks lovely, yes, very feminine, but some girls blossom sooner than others. Leave her alone and let her live her life… judge not and all that… right?

    • Joye77

      Poor girl looks like she is just a very busty young girl in a dress that was made for someone with hardly any boobs. It doesn’t fit correctly. It is a pretty dress though. I don’t think she looks inappropriate. I don’t think that a sweater of cover up would be sending a good message, that boobs are something to e ashamed of. We need to encourage young people to have body acceptance and get rid of some of the prudish old-fashioned opinions about bodies in our country.

    • Kwehrheim

      You seem to think you can just say you’re against slut shaming, and that you’re all for women showing off what they got, and it will negate the entire rest of your post, which is the exact opposite. Who cares if she’s 15? Does that make her less beautiful? Which is it? Either it’s ok for every female to dress this way, or it’s ok for none of them. If you think she should have to hide her body for any reason, then you are absolutely not ok with women dressing that way, period.

    • mancave

      i just googled her man her cleave is to die for..sorry but 15 who cares shes fkn hot as..in 3-5 years peedos or creeps will be drooling over her haha, well done mum for producing such a sexy and beautiful daughter who is a god talent actress and knows to show some skin for the fellas haha..well done ariolis :)

    • Steven

      The new 9 is 12, the new 12 is 15. Girls (and boys) are sexually maturing faster than many would like. Tho these numbers have been around for a LONG time, its simply growing in numbers. But I think Ariel looks fine, as the rest of the dress is very modest. What a 14 year old (I think) Dakota Fanning wore to The Late Night show with Letterman? Now that was too sexy/revealing.

    • come the eff on…..

      ariel winter has gigantic titties.. that dress is not sexy, nor intentionally/gratuitously revealing.. the girl can’t help being well endowed.. that is not a push up bra.. it’s called a tight – because her boobs are very large – bodice.. what’s inappropriate is you sexualizing a young woman – who, news flash, is old enough to explore her burgeoning sexuality – with your faulty suggestions that she’s dressed provocatively.. apparently, her only tasteful option is to wear a burqa with jugs like those.. [what kind of dress could conceal those? just ask christina hendricks, et al.] she shouldn’t have to dress like a prepubescent 10 y/o to make you feel more comfortable.. keisha castle-hughes is NOT dressed her age at that event! even if she were, comparing a chick old enough to go to prom – think about prom activities, dresses and objectives – to a 13 y/o, dressed like an 8 y/o going to easter service, is totally unfair.. your strict standards for what is apropos doesn’t allow for much individuality or room to come of age.. so, i’m glad you’re anti-”slut shaming” as it is totally inapplicable here.. i feel for your potential daughters and your future relationship with them if that’s how they’re expected to dress at 16!
