padded bikinis for children ages 8-14 years old. Developing...
Developing, you say? Bad choice of words. I say this should be nipped in the bud.
Normally when bikinis are involved, I would want to see pics. I would have to wash my eyes heavy grease dissolvement with this one
Well isn’t that special?
It just screams, “Molest my daughter”, doesn’t it?
That was an unfortunate choice of words.

Oh, wait. Sorry.
I’m so glad I’m not trying to raise girls in this culture.
Aldous Huxley had the sexualization of minors in Brave New World, along with the feelies.....oh, and no more sex for procreation, it was only for fun.
That is precisely where we are FRiends.
My 8 yo granddaughter, in the second grade has told me that there are girls in her class that wear bras. Nearly every store that sells little girl clothes has matching bras and pantie sets.
Yet, parents who buy this crap cry that their girls are being sexualized.
It is disgusting.
As one of the better documented degenerates on this site, I have to weigh in with: “That’s totally disgusting.”
Raising two girls, we will not allow our daughters to dress in any way that is less than modest. Modesty begins with Mom, mom sets the example. Can’t tell you them number of times I’ve had to say “no” to clothing. I will stand firm in this perverse generation.
Suri Cruise will be the first to have one..with a matching pacifier.
In my opinion, any parent who even has to THINK about the 'appropriateness' of dressing their 8 year old daughter in a padded bra is an unfit parent. It is NOT appropriate. Okay? Any MORE stupid questions?
My wife used to teach elementary school and the worst thing she saw was some mother who let her fifth grade daughter wear shorts to school that said “Bootylicious” on the butt.
Disgusting. That mother ought to be horsewhipped.
These aren’t new. I have a friend whose daughter was 11 or 12, 3 years ago and she bought her a padded bikini.
I noticed right away as I we frequently have dinner together and I thought “She didn’t blossom overnight”.
I had another friend insist I was not looking at a mirage and I said “Don’t be ridiculous and try to insult my intelligence or pull a houdini on my eyes. She ain’t that endowed and it’s stoopid to have a 12 year old acting like she’s a 20 year old.”
But hey, that’s just me.
I think he was trying to keep you abreast of current events. /s
And he IS one of the better documented degenerates on this site.
I can vouch for him!
[You don't have to thank me Owl_Eagle, I'm just happy to help!]
2nd only to Laz...
“Ive had to say no to clothing”
Any parent who would buy one of these for their daughter (or allow her to buy one for herself) should be drawn and quartered.
Amen. Thank God I had a son.
Sounds like the molester would almost be a victim in this circumstance...
The mask is off. They do things for the perversion and exploitation of the children.
I don’t know...he’s the one that these clothes are screaming at.
Abercrombie and Fitch will sell anything for a buck.
Good for you! God bless you. I think back to when our daughter was in her teens and have to say my biggest beef with her was too much eyeliner for my tastes. And I thought that was a crisis. Nothing compared to today. Our 15 year old graddaughter is a sod-kicker, totally 4-H (ish). Boots and jeans! While I’m at it I may as well tell you that these mothers that make their little girls dress like little sluts for these outrageous beauty contests ought to be arrested for child abuse as well as the parents on the subject of this thread!
I know what you are saying. However, it is the parents who have the money to BUY these thing...not the kids? Does an 8 year old do it by herself? Does she go to the beach by herself? Mine wouldn’t so...there is no way ours would be wearing these bathing suits. Those kids are too young to be going anyplace by themselves in this evil world much less wearing anything so suggestive. Parents: Stand up and refuse to buy them. If no one buys them they won’t sell and they won’t make money. I would never sacrifice my beliefs nor those of my daughter for anyone who would seek to exploit children. God forgive them but...there MUST be a market for them or this company would not even think about such an outrageous item.
I successfully raised three boys and I admit it. I would have gone stark raving bat-guano crazy if I had to raise girls. I wouldn't have been able to take it. I wouldn't have the strength.
My deep respect to those strong, courageous souls trying to raise decent women in this age.
Good for you Mom. You love your children enough to say not no but hell no. However, I’m sure your kids know enough to not even ask. Taht’s being a REAL MOM and not a friend.
Ahh! Now I get it. I was such a boob.
Maybe the padding is intended to be a safety feature in case the girls bump into something?
Sorry, I replied to the wrong thread.
I agree 100%.
Parenting is what it's all about. The kids can whine all they want and they WON'T (much) if you do it right.
Because I’d like to know what the industry says to justify this move. Ya got a problem with that?
I think (hope?) that in this case even Laz would decline to hit it.
Keep us abreast.
THIS is one reason why I STILL refer to them as “Ambercrombie and FILTH”.
I’d sooner shoot myself than let them receive one PENNY of my money!
I hate you.
Not if I teach him right! He’s five months old, so I’ve got time to work with him!
It almost makes a legitimate legal defense out of the phrase “but she WANTED it; look how she was dressed.”
[No, I will never accept that as legitimate. .... but some jurisdiction will.]
For 4 to 10 years.
(Lest I be SENTENCED to 4 to 10 years!)
They need to wait for their developing
Pauly we have a soon to be 16 year old blond hair blue eyed beauty. It is by the Grace of G-d and two strong parents that she has turned out well.
The crap they’ve been trying to sell little girls as acceptable clothing is a crying shame.
Fortunately she likes jeans, t-shirts and Sperry Top Siders. Oh, and she likes boys too thanks be to Jesus!
It’s been a long 16 years.
Money is their justification. Anything for a buck.
Should you toss your hat into the ring (see posts 20 & 21)?.
I only say that with complete FReeper fondness of course my FRiend. :) teehee
