Designer Defends Her Lingerie For Four-Year-Olds, Claiming 'It's Not Vulgar'! Do You Agree?

Her racy underwear range for tiny tots has stirred up a storm. But Sophie Morin insists she’s been misunderstood!

The designer insists there’s nothing wrong with a photoshoot featuring four-year-old models wearing panties and bras. Is she right? You decide!

The range for 4-12 year olds, by label Jours Après Lunes, has been accused of “sexualizing children”.

Fashionista.com accused the company of creating “lingerie for people who probably shouldn’t be old enough to even know what lingerie is.”

The article prompted designer Sophie Morin to write back to the website, defending her creations.

“All I wanted to do was offer underwear that is soft and pleasant to wear… that is suited [to] their age, and that wasn’t an extension of women’s labels, which are often vulgar,” she argues.

“The materials…have no vulgar connotation: they are totally opaque, nothing transparent. The style is inspired by children’s fashion, with spots, bows, etc.”

She also defends the way the kids are made-up and posed: “The children aren’t wearing high heels nor nail polish nor lipstick. The hairdos are over the top, but so are children’s games. Yes, the models wear sunglasses, like every single kid. Yes, you see their stomachs and legs, like you do on the beach. Yes they wear necklaces inside the house, as do all little girls for fun.”

We disagree. These photos AND the idea of small children wearing ‘adult’ underwear is WRONG.

Do you agree, HollyMoms?

That is not right. Kids that are for year ods shouldn’t need bras…4 year old little girls often will see men, younger boys, and older boys on the beach topless, or even in the house topless. Girls shouldn’t know that they are going to grow up and have breasts until their bodies do start showing signs of maturing. Little girls should be able to run around without a top on like Heidi Klum’s daughter Leni. They shouldn’t be sexualized at such an early age. They barely have breasts yet.

Bras are for breasts. Little girls do not have breasts so yes I think they are very inappropriate.

i don’t see anything wrong with the line it’s self – but i do thing the adds are very inciting for pedophiles. and yes H.Sparkles, calling it lingerie is pushing it to a strange level.

i think the photos are a little weird. whith all the sick people in this world i dont think the sdvertisment for this should include little girls modeling the clothing…..and i hate that they are calling it lingerie for children. But that being said i have a 4 year old daughter and since she was very young she has always wanted pretty panties. i dont htink there is anything wrong with pretty undergarments for children.

This is sooooooooo completly and utterly wrong. 4 year olds should b 4 year olds they grow up quick enough as it is and dont need this. and what about peodofiles surely this is just going to give them something to perv over. the pics above and any other pics showing/advertising this should b removed its disgusting the designer should b sacked and the products burnt.
