I have very clear memories of being undressed in public all the way through childhood. My folks originally came from Eastern Europe and saw nothing wrong with young girls running about in their panties. My sisters and I wore very little around the house (undies or less) and frequently played under the sprinklers in the front yard. Of course, that was in the privacy of our own home; stripping down outside was a different story altogether (blush).

It virtually goes without saying that Mom ignored my protests, peeling my vest over my head then removing my shoes and socks. In no time flat, I'd been stripped right down to my prim, white panties; groups of children were already staring at me and giggling to one another. Being a little plump like many girls my age, I was slightly self-conscious and begged Mommy to put my dress back on. She gave me a choice between playing with my friends or getting dressed and helping her set up the picnic. She also pointed out that a number of girls were already running about in their undies and didn't seem to mind at all (needless to say, the comparison was completely invalid: I was about eleven and the others were like five
I gnawed my lip for a few seconds, wavering with indecision, then scampered off across the lawn in my cotton panties. At first, I was red-cheeked with embarrassment, but I soon noticed that other girls were shedding their clothes as well - it really was
