The short answer is that if your mom has decided the answer is no then as your parent she may not want to move from that position.

However, you may want to speak to her about the fact that your friends wear them, and she can perhaps speak to their parents if she knows them well enough.

But your mother may be concerned that you wanting to do this is about sex rather than fashion and you may need to speak to her about the difference between following a fashion and wanting to be sexually active.

The legal age for sex in SA is 16 years old.
