Abercrombie & Fitch Market Padded Swimsuits For Kids – Parents Upset

Once again, Abercrombie and Fitch is under fire from parents since it began marketing padded swimsuits and bikini tops at Abercrombie kids, which is the company’s shop specifically for boys and girls. There are lightly padded versions of the swimwear too for those that do not want too much padding, but many parents are unhappy with the company for offering such items, claiming they are pushing kids to grow up even more quickly than they already are. Even though there are different options, this is not impressing parents who would like the items removed from their store and online shopping.

This is not the first time that Abercrombie and Fitch has upset parents. Back in 2002, parents were upset when the company began marketing thongs for kids.

And last year politicians and even David Cameron the British Prime Minister, expressed concern when Primark, a major clothing retailer in Britain, tried to market padded bikini tops for girls. The retailer eventually pulled the items from their stores after the public outcry.
