Victoria Secret crossing a line? Will you purchase for your young girl?

"The new brand called, “Bright Young Things,” includes lace black cheeksters with the word “Wild” emblazoned on it, green and white polka-dot hipsters screen printed with “Feeling Lucky?” and a lace trim thong with the words, “Call me” on the front."

Chief Financial Officer Stuart Burgdoerfer of Limited Brands, of which Victoria’s Secret is a subsidiary, announced the company’s new marketing demographic at a recent conference, claiming about younger girls:“They want to be older, and they want to be cool like the girl in college, and that’s part of the magic.”

Feeling LUCKY?! on underwear geared to twelve year olds??

  • They are fucking stupid. Or maybe the creators of this are a bunch of fucking pervs. How is taking pics of children for this crap not considered child porn? As long as your a multi-million dollar company then it's okay???? But if your a middle-class perv it's not? It's BS if you ask me.

  • They want to be older, and they want to be cool


    Wait until they are older, they will wish they loved being a kid cause it is really cool just being a kid.

  • Seriously. What happened to Day of the Week underwear? Why would parents enable this stuff? And we wonder why kids have sex so young.

  • No, absolutely not. I get that they want cute underwear but, that's too far. Plus the idea that there will be a catalogue with models is just sick.

  • Can't wait for the parents of a pregnant 12 year old who bought the underwear for their child to sue VS for child support!!!!!!
