    Parents say kid's thong is just plain wrong

    Clothier selling skimpy skivvies for girls 10 and older

    Calling it the "modern-day version of Underoos," a national clothing company is selling thong underwear in children's sizes - with the words "eye candy" and "wink wink" printed on the front.

    Abercrombie & Fitch
    The rearless underwear comes in sizes for girls ages 10 to 16. The smallest size - a medium - appears small enough to fit an even younger girl.

    Abercrombie & Fitch, the same retailer that enraged parents last year with a summer catalog of teenage-looking models groping each other and in the nude, now offers several varieties of thongs at its Abercrombie stores, the division of the company for children 7 to 14 years old.

    "It's cute and fun and sweet," said Hampton Carney, spokesman for the company based in New Albany, Ohio.

    But some parents are far from tickled. In fact, they're outraged.

    "I think of myself as fairly hip, and I think it's just disgusting," said Julie McNamara, a 40-year-old mother from Whitefish Bay.

    The thongs, part of Abercrombie's summer line, sell for $7.50, or 3 for $15. Some have stripes, others are solid pink or blue. The solid-colored thongs have the words "eye candy" printed in a little pink heart and "wink wink" in a small green box.

    The rearless underwear comes in sizes for girls ages 10 to 16. The smallest size - a medium - appears small enough to fit an even younger girl.

    McNamara said she was livid when she stumbled upon the thongs while shopping for her three children at Bayshore Mall. She grabbed a pair and confronted a clerk at the register.

    "I said, 'Will you tell me what this is?' They said, 'I know, I know, you're the fourth one today,' " McNamara said.

    The flap over the thongs is not the first time that Abercrombie & Fitch has caused controversy for its edgy themes and designs.

    Last year, the company caught ire from parents over its quarterly catalog, which was filled with models who appeared to be college age or younger in the nude, kissing and fondling each other.

    The company defended its publication, calling it a celebration of a youthful and spirited yet responsible lifestyle.

    i think the whole point of thongs is to not have panty lines if you are wearing tight pants. at least thats why i wear them (i don't think bojangles cares as long as they are off when they are supposed to be).
    regular panties look bunchy and weird.

    Its appropriate when your 10 when you start to care about your underwear? Who the hell even cares about their damn underwear? Shit...they're just askin for pedophiles and kiddy porn with this shit. "Eye Candy?"What the fuck. Whos eye candy is it for? the girl is like 10 with eye candy on her childrens thong, they just want little kids to prance around flashing kids with their cool slogans on their stylish underpantaloons. What are they trying to do anyway? Theyre trying to sell money so little kids can try to be "cool" and act older by wearing stupid thongs. Im glad there's not an abercrombie store around here or theyd get a guy fucking with them throwin things and calling them names

    If you don't want your child wearing them, then don't fuckin' buy them.

    Also, to contradict myself... I can not for any reason see why it is necassary for children to be sporting thongs.

    -MOE LESTER- Guest

    girls go to the mall with their freinds, go to victorias secret etc, and buy thongs themselves, you actually think any mom in her right mom would bbuy her daughter a lacy black thong with silver sparkles?!? unless your mom was a vegas lap dancer i highly doubt it

    hahha...no kidding...those dumb fuckers have been striking out hard in the last month...now if they could only include secret date rape pill stash pockets in all their mens clothes, they would really be on a roll

    ....in all honesty, no one should care about panty lines on a 10 year old....

    Jesus Christ, you kids are like the old guys from Foot Loose who outlawed dancing. Believe it or not, thongs serve a purpose. Ever been to a dance or a wedding where girls are wearing tight dresses? If they were wearing granny panties, those tight dresses would look pretty ridiculous. Its not like girls walk around in JUST a thong.
