Dear Fonseca,

I am 51 and a grandmother of four. I attended a graduation ceremony for my 5th grade grandson the other night. I wore a skin-tight black spandex dress that showed off all of my curves and hourglass figure. Some of the mothers were uncomfortable and talked about my dress online. I think I embarrassed my daughter. One mother said the dress was inappropriate for a graduation and shouldn't be worn by someone over 50. I disagree and think it shows young girls that they can wear what they want and should if they have the confidence and body to do so. Another mother said I looked like trash. Again, I disagree and think it was an excellent display of confidence and high self-esteem. I can't help it if your husband was staring at me and not you! What's your opinion on this?
