this is terrible and should not be allowed, apart from voting with your feet and not buying the products, what else can be done to stop this happening,
the pictures are nothing but child pornography and i have reported AOL for showing them as i would if i came across photos like this anywhere else.

bras for 4 yos? really not appropriate. What sort of parents buy them?

The clothes and bras are fine for girls at the upper end of the age range - but don't seem right for 4yos at all, and I'm not keen on the Amy Winehouse bouffants on little girls in skimpy undies.

And their baby undies are really very, very cute grin.

I am fed up of "bras " for little girls, it's ridiculous. It drives me mad ,at school (I'm a TA), girls aged 5 or 6 getting changed for P.E. have them on, and it's always the ones whose parents never send P.E. Kit for them to wear! It is totally innappropriate.

What next? Open crotch basques along with posing pouches for five year olds?

I think that it's the photos advertising this 'lingerie' that are more inappropriate than the 'lingerie' itself. It's obviously designed to create a scandal, putting make-up and hairdressing 4 year olds to look like Brigitte Bardot.

Still, much more tasteful than the French Vogue editorial, which is just plain old creepy:

And then again, the French seem to have a very different idea what is appropriate for children and what is not.

I haven't clicked on the link, but I think it may be worth considering that children's chronological age does not always match their size. Say a petite 10 year old may not necessarily want to be marked out by wearing clothes designed for younger children.

I doubt they'd sell many crop tops in the smaller sizes. I'm not sure it's exactly a scandal.

I'm far more fussed about playboy branding being promoted to Tweens (who have their own pocket money to buy this dubious crap - unlike 4 year olds).

sorry, it's not just about the garments themselves, though of course bras for 4 yr olds et wholly inappropriate, but the pictures are truly disgusting. Sultry 7 yr olds with wild 'bed hair' lying reclined in provocative poses, and knickers with silky bows on the bums and saucy pictures to match. Really offensive. Wow, am shocked so many people okyed this. and saddened.
