Parents outraged by Abercrombie & Fitch’s padded swimsuit for girlsMarch 28th, 2011 - 5:29 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Mar 28 (ANI): American retailer Abercrombie and Fitch has caused outrage among parents after it introduced a new swimsuit line for kids that included padded bikini tops.
The clothing store, which also offers lightly lined swimsuit tops for kids who have not yet developed breasts, has been criticised for pushing kids to grow up too quickly.
“You should be ashamed! Remove the suits from the stores!” the New York Daily News quoted one commenter as writing on the company’s website.
Another added: “Shame on you for sexualising small children. In a world where parents work hard to keep their children safe, you go and make little girls look like they have breasts? Perverts.”
According to Racked.com, the tops were originally marketed as “push up triangle” until bloggers began slamming them earlier this week. (ANI)
