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
