Padded Bikinis for 8 year olds?!
Ok, not really.
I'm appalled and aghast and horrified. Not that I should be surprised. Abercrombie has always been known for it's disgusting ad material. (If there aren't any children present, Google "Abercrombie images". This stuff is marketed to kids, folks.) I found this interesting; in one town the police removed their in-store pictures because they violated decency laws. I'm thinking about looking into that here.
Anyway, back to the Huffington Post article. Fantastic video interview with a Dr. Bradley.. he nails it right on the head. I didn't, however, like the commentator's line about "parents trying to keep their daughters forever young". Sounded a little supercilious to me.
See for yourself. What do you think? Would you let your daughter wear that?
