    Default Parents Angry Over Disney's 'Dive In' Underwear for Young Girls

    “High School Musical” underwear for young girls have sparked outrage — because they have the words “Dive in” on them.

    A British woman bought a packet of five pairs, with a “Disney-approved” design promoting the hit movie, for her seven-year-old granddaughter.

    “When she put them on, myself and my daughter thought, ‘Oh my goodness.’ It is inappropriate because it is sexually suggestive,” Sue Ralph, a 57-year-old civil servant, said. “You just never know who could see that and think it was a bit too enticing for a young child to be wearing.”

    Sue is demanding the $7.50 packs are removed from her local Asda supermarket in Broadstairs, Kent, where she bought them.

    The underwear has also angered the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, a British children’s charity.

    NSPCC said: “This is part of a worrying trend of inappropriate clothing marketed at young children.”

    “The design was approved by Disney. It was completely innocent and not meant to cause offence,” Asda said in a statement.

    Why are these girls running around in public with no pants on, so people can read their underwear?

    Oh, come on now. The lettering is so small that a predator would need to read it with a magnifying glass. And of course by then it would be far too late anyway.

    If she's mortified by them, why did she buy them?

    Yep, she one of THOSE parents........

    if you don't like them, take them back get a refund....don't buy them.... geez!

    3/4 of the clothing out there that is made for my 12 & 9 yr old girls would look great on a pre teen & teen prostitute! I just don't buy it.

    My older child has a dress code in middle school. They are pretty strict about too. they have to wear longer shorts, which are kinda hard to find around here!

    I'm guessing that since it's a 5 pair pack, the writing for all the pair wasn't visible.


    That being said.. EVHgirl is right. Just take the damn things back for a refund.

    On another note, I'm not sure what "dive-in" is a reference to in High School Musical?
    Don't drink the Jim Jones punch. They're called theToxic Twins for a reason...
