Hello mylotters, It's summer! And the best activity for the weekend is to take a dip on the pool or a swim on a beach. Swimsuits and bikinis(two piece swimsuit) are in!. From young people to young at heart can wear swimsuits or bikinis. We can see colorful and lovely Adults & Kids swimming outfits in stores. Adults bikinis are usually design with padded bikini bra and kid's bikini bras are not padded. But, there is an issue now that stores are selling padded bikini bra for kids. So my question is, Do you think that padded bikini bra should be appropriate for a seven year old to wear? Why?

It seems like they keep pushing kids to grow up more and more. I guess it depends how padded they are. A little padding would be protective I guess but really I don't think it is appropriate for young girls. I was in shock when I went to buy underwear for my 7 year old and they had thong underwear in her size. Seriously?

I do not like the fact that children wear bras. It is better to wear a swimsuit. It is more decent and more fit for a child.

That is totally insane! I don't think that would be appropriate at all, and I'd never buy one, much less let somebody that young wear one. What on earth are these manufacturers thinking?! While it's one thing for a little girl to play dress-up with Mom's clothes, it's another thing to have them think of themselves as having adult anatomy. It's sad, but I'm sure there will be Moms and others who will buy these for children, then wonder why they're growing up so fast, or becoming se*ual beings so young. Why can't people let children be children without forcing this kind of stuff on them at such an early age!

O______O it's ridiculous. LOL! i can't imagine a child wearing those padded bras. they don't have to since they don't have any b o o b s i e s yet. kids should act as kids. kids should wear clothes for kids. it would be disgusting if they'll wear it.

OMG, this is ridiulous. They are trying to have a child look older wearing a padded bra. That is really disgusting especially with so many perverts out in the world today. I have to go to the store and check this out. When I tell my daughter she is going to be turned off by this completely. She has a 4 year old and I know there is no way she would ever let her wear a padded bra at such a young age. Are they trying to have the kids grow up earlier then they should what is the purpose of all this?

There are a lot of things being sold for children this age and younger that I have a problem with, thong underwear, high heeled shoes, sexy looking clothing, etc. No it's not appropriate, not at all.

Oh I really don't think this is okay! We should not sexualize young children! Ah that makes me sick, of course it is not okay. What are these swim suit makers thinking? There must be something I am just not seeing because this is just atrocious.
