Children and Modesty

 I bought this bathing suit for my daughter because she needs a new bathings suit and it was on clearance (I'm a sucker for clearance).  It's warm enough here in FL for swimming, playing the the water, etc.  I'm not a fan of bikini's for my little girl, but I do love two piece bathing suits.  They are much easier to take off when running to the bathroom.  I bought this knowing we would not use the halter top bikini part.  Why does a 4-5 yr old need a bikini top cut like that anyway?  She doesn't have a chest and if she did I sure as heck wouldn't want to accentuate it.  I do love the shirt type tops because we are such fair skin and the more sun protection the better.  I figured it was still worth the clearance price for the shirt and bikini bottom untill I pulled the bottom off the hanger.
I thought it was just a regular bathing suit bottom.  Why would they make a little girl's bikni/bathing suit bottom with such a high cut?  We are taking it back.  My husband doesn't want our 4 yr old wearing it either.  This is just one small example of the many outfits I see for children that just aren't modest.  This is size 4/5 (4 and 5 year olds will be wearing it).  I guess this could explain why they were clearanced.  Why are they making children's clothes sexy?  I do not want my child to wear clothes that look sexy.  She's 4 and isn't sexy.  The thought of her ever being sexy isn't something I even want to think about.  She's my baby and she's cute.  That's how I will always see her.

Am I just one of those crazy Mom's?  Wait...I don't know if I want the answer to that. :P

No, you aren't crazy. They get this from certain TV shows that promote sexy toddlers to gain viewers. Its both sad and sick. The parents that push this as cute just encourage pedophiles.

I don't think you're crazy either. There are so many things now that I just won't let my girls wear. No need to feed some pervs imagination.

I may still be crazy but not about this topic. Lol I didn't think it would be a big deal to get my 4yr old a bathing suit. I think its the crossover to big girl sizes. 4t/5t sizes all seem fine. One bathing suit was a tankini and my first thought was "that's cute," but then I turned it around. It had a completely open back except for one little strap. Fine for some people, but not a 4yr old. I don't even want to think about the pervs. :(
