I can’t decide if this is WTFkery or not.
On one hand, I can’t imagine taking an 8 year old into A&F to do any sort of shopping, but then, I can’t actually imagine shopping at A&F period. Still, I guess the idea of actually padding a string bikini for anyone under the age of 14 seems a little…sad.
Sure, I get that a lining would definitely be appropriate, but padded? Eh. Over-sexualization of children or overreaction?
I *will* say there is some WTFkery going on at the A&F site, though. This is the actual product link now.
However, someone at racked.com managed to snag a screen shot of the thing a little while ago, and it was clearly listed as a “push up”. That does seem a bit excessive, if you ask me.
