Abercrombie Push-Up Top for Girls Not Cool For Pool

I have long boycotted Abercrombie & Fitch out of a prudish obsession with their adult portrayal of young   kids.

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?

  1. Only mothers who put their little girls in beauty contests would want to buy these. I find it both crude and tasteless. I agree with Paulette…little girls should be sweet, not sexy!
