Padded Bikini tops for young girls

On the radio I heard the company Abercombrie (sp) was selling bikini tops with pads for young girls.
One lady said this would be good for girls who are developed at a young age and wanted to conceal more.
Do padded tops conceal or reveal more?

  • I think a padded top is just another way our young girls are being sexualized way too young. From some of the dolls that are made to the clothes offered to them, society it trying to make them grow too soon. And is giving them poor ideas of what a woman is suppose to look and act like.

  • Well padded tops will avoid their nipples poking through. I developed early and I wish I'd had a padded top. It was awkward and I got teased a lot...

  • I think if a girl is developing/developed, she needs a swimsuit with a lining/padding.

  • A little padding does help conceal, a lot of padding is just a sexualization, male-em-look bigger thing.

  • I would think a padded top would be adding to a girl who is already developing. I could understand one who isn't developed yet using one. if you're wanting to conceal you don't add padding to it, just more coverage.

  • Well, if they were simply padded (you know, like the little triangles of thin padding (more like lining) which we can remove from a bathingsuit top) that wouldn't be an issue. A little padding for a girl who has budding breasts helps conceal nipples which generally stand out in an unlined little girl bathingsuit. BUT these aren't just padded, they're designed like a push up bra.
