I think little girls and boys should look like little girls and boys—and not like Victoria’s Secret models and their leering boyfriends.
With so many kids wearing “Abercrombie” I decided maybe I was being too, harsh, too puritanical. Maybe I got my boy shorts into a knot over nothing; then scandal erupted.
Abercrombie started to market a bikini for little girls, as young as 7, with a padded push-up top. Here is a link showing the original ad:
Perhaps Abercrombie has finally shown their true colors through their black and white editorial-style advertising. They have removed the “push-up” from the items’ descriptions as in this link:
For modesty reasons, girls want a lined suit; but enough padding to keep the space shuttle from burning up on reentry? Unsuitable.
Note to Abercrombie & Fitch: if a girl still plays with Barbies, she absolutely should not look like one.
What’s next—American Girl Vodka?
