12 year old girls with push-up bikinis? no wonder we have issues in the world with parents who are too young..
"PADDED bikinis aimed at girls as young as 12 have sparked outrage among parents and child experts.
US retailer Abercrombie and Fitch designed the "push-up" bikini for seven-year-old girls but decided to re-categorised the bathers to over 12 years after it sparked public outrage from parents.
The newly named "striped triangle" can be purchased from the retailer's website, the NT News reports.
But child psychologists warn that sexualising young girls can cause unnecessary anxiety.
Parents have expressed outrage over the bikini on the Abercrombie Kids facebook page.
Mother Renee Hart said it's "degrading" for girls to wear padded bikinis."
