Me it's my dad. When I buy skinny jeans (and I don't even buy the super tight ones, but the "looser types"... you know the ones that bunch up around the ankle and are a bit spacious around the calves)... anyhow he always complains that my jeans are too tight and too small. I get so riled up when he says that. Last time I went to buy jeans with him (was 15 and am now 18), I bought the size he wanted me to (he was paying), and seeing as jeans always stretch a little, after one wash they were so loose I'd have to constantly pull them up. Drove me stir crazy, so when he just mentions my jeans I get suuuuuper mad.
Same thing with dresses, they are always too short for my father despite being longer than mid-thigh (and I'm small so dresses are generally longer on me than they were intended to be). Anyhow I can sympathize with you. It's hard to not get all defensive and riled up when parents comment on our clothes. Especially if we think the exact opposite and they say it with a tone...
What I try to do is hold back any rude comments... however I do blow up and get mad, clearly expressing my unappreciation and lack of interest in their opinion. I have a very sensitive conscious so if I do something I find even sightly inappropriate (and I do consider myself to be rather conservative), it bothers me very much until I fix it. In those cases I accept any comments my parents will have to say on the subject (no matter what their tone). When I know I'm not in the wrong though, any ridiculous comment from them drives me crazy.
However, I'm sure I'll drive my daughter crazy as well when the time comes. ;)
A ride a day keeps the worries away!
