Lingerie for toddlers?

by Amanda Lanum 

You may have heard the controversy surrounding a French underwear line for kids that markets lingerie-type clothing for 4-year-olds... FOUR-YEAR-OLDS.

The little girls who model this line are all dolled up in makeup and the clothing much as someone five times their age would be. This article in the NY Daily News (http://www.nydailynews.com/lifestyle/fashion/2011/08/16/2011-08-16_french_kids_underwear_line_markets_sexy_bras_for_4_yearolds_tot_models_wear_make.html) says the Fille collection is aimed at 4 to 12 year olds and they're calling it loungerie instead of lingerie.

My questions-- Do you have a problem with the clothing line itself or the marketing campaign "sexualizing" the young girls? Or maybe you don't see a problem with this at all and think it's being blown out of proportion. Thoughts?
