    Default Padded Bikini tops for 8 years olds?

    some knucklehead designer managed to get a numbskull to manufacture these monstrosites and a asshat buyer for the dumbass retailer got this product into stores

    and somewhere the same kind of incompetent mother who buys high heeled shoes and booty shorts for her preschooler is buying this for her little precious one

    this must be some kind of trend because a couple of weeks ago I was in a store...can't remember if it was walmart or Miejers and I was shocked to see tiny little padded bikini tops in the little girls section.

    just weird...who thinks that this type of thing is OK?

    Abercrombie criticized for selling push-up tops to little girls
    By the CNN Wire Staff
    March 26, 2011 9:54 p.m. EDT


    The retailer advertised its "Ashley" bikini top as a "push-up triangle"
    It has since changed the online description of the top to a "striped triangle"

    (CNN) -- No stranger to controversy, U.S. retailer Abercrombie & Fitch has come under fire for offering a push-up bikini top to young girls.Its "Ashley" bikini -- described as "padded" and a "push-up" -- was posted on the Abercrombie Kids website earlier this week.

    The company declined to comment Saturday but noted it has since updated the description of its bikini online. The product is now being offered as a padded, "striped triangle." Bottoms are sold separately.

    "How is this okay for a second-grader?" asked Rebecca Odes in a recent post on the Babble parenting blog. "Playing at sexy is an inevitable and important part of growing up. But there's a difference between exploring these ideas on your own and having them sold to you in a children's catalog," she wrote.

    Gail Dines, a sociology professor at Wheelock College in Boston, similarly slammed the top, saying it would encourage girls to think about themselves in a sexual way before they are ready. "It (also) sends out really bad signals to adult men about young girls being appropriate sexual objects," she told CNN affiliate WHDH.

    This is not the first time the company, known for its sexy style of marketing campaigns, has found itself in hot water with consumers. In 2002, the retailer pulled controversial T-shirts after complaints they were racially insensitive. One shirt showed Chinese laundry workers with conical hats and the phrase, "Wong Brothers Laundry Service: Two Wongs Can Make It White."
    In 2003, the company -- under pressure from some consumer groups -- said it would stop issuing racy catalogues and halt the publication of its holiday book, which featured nude young adult models in sexually suggestive poses.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    The saddest part is that if no one purchased the items, they would not be sold.

    The fact that these have a market is the real tragedy.

    Really don't understand the point of eight year old girls in padded bras and bikinis.

    That's the bottom line. Can't blame Abercrombie. Blame the dumbass parents buying these types of clothing for their children.

    theres been a huge uproar here in England regarding these. a store called Primark have been forced to stop selling them due to preassure from the media and public outcry, trouble is people still bought the things.

    Glad I don't have a little girl. It's bad enough trying to raise boys in this sexcentric world. Surprised they don't sell little padded banana hammocks. Can't believe there's some turd sitting up in some office somewhere that's thinking, "hmm, those little girls would sure look better if they looked as if they had boobs". And again, as mentioned, there's the parents that make the bathing suits viable by buying them. "Little princess sure would make a cute little slut. Wonder if she's too young for her own stripper pole"?

    Reminds me of that South Park episode where Paris Hilton was making young girls whores.

    Don't understand the need for this and I don't have kids. I also don't understand why a parent would want to make their daughter more attractive to boys. I thought dad's don't want their daughters to go out with guys. Why get them push up bras at such an early age?

    The 8 year olds aren't the ones with the credit card, if people want to buy them, they should sell them.

    Disgusting though.
