Padded Bikini Tops for the Lil’ Chicks

This summer, Abercrombie Kids designed a bikini top to give the little ones a bit of help. Apparently, pre-teens should have the option to fill-in and push up the boobies.

Abercrombie Kids, a line geared towards kids ages 8 to 14, new spring line includes three bikini top styles, including the Ashley Push Up Triangle, that are all stuffed with padding. It’s safe to say that moms are outraged, and rightfully so.

Though the padded girl’s bikini top is slightly disturbing, I secretly wished Abercrombie would have backed it. Almost every time a brand is under attack, their legs tremble and they fall to their knees.  It may be a little far-fetched, but I would like to see a brand believe in their product enough to stand firm on it.

Abercrombie addressed concerns about the bikini top with a posting on the company’s Facebook page, which read, “We’ve re-categorized the Ashley swimsuit as padded. We agree with those who say it is best ‘suited’ for girls age 12 and older.”

…whatever gets you out the hot seat.
