French Lingerie Line Aimed at Kids, Gordman's Bikini Onesie - What's Next?
Last year, it was a French lingerie line aimed at kids.
Jours Après Lunes came under fire when they created a collection of delicate undergarments for kids then, and now we have outrage over Gordman's Bikini Onesie.
In the US, department store Gordman's is under fire for offering up Wild Child, a brand manufactured by Bon Bebe.
The company created a baby bodysuit onsie with a woman's silhouette wearing a bikini printed on it.
See it in the above photo.
"Inappropriate" was one reply that seem to echo from parents who were asked to comment.
"I just think that is a little ridiculous that you would put that on your child," another parent said.
One father who spoke on camera to a TV news crew says he wouldn't let his daughter wear the "bikini" because "it gives people the wrong idea too quickly."
Stephanie Hanes of the Christian Science Monitor's Modern Parenthood explains her opinion well:
"What a lot of parents find distasteful about the bikini onesie – and a number of the other “funny” ones out there – is that you’re basically using your kid as the butt of a joke. They don’t know what they’re wearing, or why people are laughing at them. They’re a prop. And to a lot of parents, that just doesn’t seem so kind."
The company has not issued a statement on the fallout from the onsie.
