BlogHer Spotlight

[It could just be me, being the crazy feminist or overwrought mom that I am. But the idea of a line of lingerie for young girls kind of bugs me. Wasn’t the furor over 10-year-old Thylane Blondeau posing like a sexpot in French Vogue just last week? The outrage was so great that Thylane’s mom had to shutter her daughter’s Facebook page. Now it’s a French label pushing bras and panties for 4-year-olds. Ashley Strickland at CNN.com peeks at the fallout from the underwear line and its racy ads.--Mona]

She writes:

They recline in their bras and panties, some wearing pearls and Brigitte Bardot-inspired bouffants, shooting smiles at the camera. The images are just like many a lingerie ad designed to entice, but these are images of young girls -- those who aren't even old enough to need bras.

French company Jours Après Lunes has designed a line of "loungerie" -- a compromise between loungewear and lingerie -- for children between the ages of 4 and 12. A line for teenagers and infants is seemingly age appropriate, but the designs for children are drawing fire.
