Abercrombie & Fitch Padded Bikini Tops For 7+ Year Olds! Are They Freakin’ Kidding Me? Plus, Shape Ups For Girls.
Geez, and we wonder why children are growing up before their time, and why there appear to be more sexual predators then ever before. Some asinine ideas like this one, are surely contributing to the problem…no doubt about it. I find it horrifying.
What am I referring to? A&F better known as Abercrombie & Fitch’s, half baked idea to have padded bikini tops available for sale, for all. Both the young and the old, and I do mean young.
Padded bikinis for little girls ages 7-14. Come on now…7 YEARS OF AGE? (Some sources say 8 years old and up, but who cares about the extra year?) That is still a baby, and I was shocked and appalled to hear about this on the news the day before last, but hadn’t had time to post about it, until now.
It’s beyond disturbing to all mothers, especially those with young girls, as have I. I don’t know if there is much we can do to stop this, but we can choose of course to NOT buy such items that lure sexual deviants to our innocent children. If they don’t sell, then they just might get the message. Not to mention all of the mothers up in arms, posting on the Internet about this topic.
What’s up with the world today, really? Why can’t children stay children for longer? Why the big rush to grow up and to enhance body parts that aren’t even there yet? UGH! This mom is really blown away by this, as I am sure many moms who heard the story themselves, or are reading this now, are also. Padded swimwear for tweens is downright disgusting in this blogger’s book.
I personally made the bad choice of dressing provocatively, and ‘enhancing’ things, at the age of only 14, to get attention I was not receiving at home, and found out very quickly, that even 20, 30, 40 year old, and older men, including some married ones, could care less about my numeric age, because I looked so much older.
I was not that way though. I was a good girl. A Christian….a virgin, and was completely sickened by these men. I just craved the compliments, and car honks, was all. I thought nothing more of it, but they did. It’s really quite sad, but it taught me many lessons. Some boys and men care more about the look of a child then the actual age of one.
I look back now, and see I was clearly still only a baby! This baby did end up being pulled into a stranger’s car in broad day light, and raped 2 times one awful Summer day. I’m not saying the way I was dressed I deserved it, but I know it enticed this despicable human being. Our youth needs positive attention, but not this kind. I learned that the hard way, so how can these clothing companies with a clear conscious, put such items on their store shelves?
I mean, I saw on TV the other day Shape Ups for little girls. LITTLE GIRLS? As much as I adore my Shape Ups, and how wonderful I think they are, why would a child need such a thing? 1st off they have odd bottoms. They are NOT safe for kids to run and play in, so that could lead to a lot of injuries and problems for the Skecher’s company.
I know we have an even increasing epidemic of obese children in the world, if that is their angle, but this is taking it too far for a young child. No child needs to worry about toning up their their calves, thighs, and derrieres. I love the Skechers brand, but even this doesn’t sit well with me. I mean it’s just dangerous and unsettling. An adult is far more responsible with their footwear, and know how to handle these shoes properly, but a child does not.
I don’t know…padded tops for young girls, Shape Ups to tone up children’s bodies…I think the world has gone LOCO!! If you are a mom and missed this padded bikini top story, do check out the video below. It’s all about the many ways our children are growing up too fast, not only the A&F story.

‘Sexualizing our young children like this, is grotesque, and any mother who goes out and buys her young child one of these bikini tops this summer, I honestly have ZERO respect for you.
The kids don’t have the money to buy them at these ages, so they shouldn’t be able to own them. Don’t contribute..case closed! – Mama Possible.
