Abercrombie And Fitch New Controversial Bikini
Swimsuit season is just around the corner and stores are stocking up on the hottest bikinis for summer 2011. Abercrombie and Fitch has a controversial bikini coming this summer with a padded bra that is aimed at 8-14 year olds. That’s right, padded bras for second graders!
Bloggers on Babble.com were furious with A&F, saying “The push up bras is, effectively, a sex tool and how is this ok for a second-grader?”
Apparently a British department store called Primark according to the Huffington Post sold similar bikini tops last year but stopped selling them due to harsh complaints. They donated the money made from sales of the bikinis to charity. It looks like someone at A&C didn’t do their research.
What kind of message does this send to your little girl? Would you ever consider buying this for your daughter?
