A mom is defending her 13-year-old daughter after a Dillard’s employee in Kansas told her daughter she needed Spanx. Megan Naramore Harris and her daughter, Lexi, were shopping for dresses for Lexi’s middle school formal. Harris grabbed a dress and “begged” Lexi to try it on.

“She told me this was not her style, but tried it on for me,” Harris wrote in a Facebook post addressing the salesperson. “I told her how grown up it made her look and she smiled, and told me this made her look too old but still, she let me take a picture.”

Right then, a Dillard’s employee suggested Lexi wear Spanx underneath to look slimmer in the dress. “I told my daughter to go change. I told you that she was just fine without SPANX. You continued to argue with me,” she wrote.

“My daughter is tall, she swims, runs, dances and does yoga. She’s fit. She’s beautiful. She did not need you telling her that she is not perfect. I hope this is shared and gets back to you so that you should not say something like that to a girl ever again.”

Harris’ post has been viewed nearly half a million times.
