I don't know what makes Elizabeth Hurley and other fashion designers think our children should be wearing two piece, string bikinis, but hopefully the backlash she is getting will awaken fashion designers like her to stop pushing this on our kids. Sure parents can choose not to buy them but why market them in the first place and oversexualize children? We have enough high teen pregnancy and single mothers, thanks to oversexualized TV and movies, and other problems in our society where the innocence of childhood is becoming lost.
When Liz Hurley's brand tweeted out her kids' swimwear collection there was an almost instant backlash from disgusted moms.
Our kids collection is divine too.
"Triangle and side tie bikinis on little girls is not a good look ... Sorry. Why sexualise them. Let them be children."
"Leopard print bikinis for children, how delightful..."
"Children have to be trendy too? What for sexual predators? Nope. This is silly!""
